2021 Hot Selling 2D 2.5D 3D Laser Engraving Cutting Machine

You maybe confused about several type of laser engraving machine, like 2D 2.5D and 3D laser engraving machine, this article will show you different on software, laser head about 3 different laser engraving machine. 

Now that the Fiber laser marking machine has developed rapidly and quickly occupied the Many market, their differences are mainly distinguishes from application, work and machine parts. Laser machine can be divided into fiber laser machine, Co2 laser machine, UV laser machine etc. Here we just talk about the fiber laser machine. so this article will focus on fiber laser engraving machine 2D 2.5D and 3D laser machine, 

First, Lets introduction of 2D 2.5D 3D laser engraving machine separately:

******2D laser engraving machine

2D laser engraving machine are widely used in many fields. For example, metal engraving such as stainless steel, carbon steel, gold, silver, copper, Brass and aluminum, and some plastic engraving such as animal ear tags,Keyboard,polymer,ABS and so on. it widely use in market, BOGONG MINI type laser engraving machine sold very well in market.

Application of 2D laser engraving machine:

The fiber laser engraving machine available on the market satisfies most laser marking applications, such as logo making, serial numbers, technical specifications and other designs on metals (copper, iron, steel, stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, gold, silver, Brass Marking alloys, etc.) and ABS, etc. However, the working area of the fiber laser engraving machine mostly is 100*100mm, there have optional lens can bigger the engraving area: such as 70*70mm, 110*110mm, 150*10mm, 200*200mm 300*300mm  Most of them are also equipped with low-power laser sources.  Such as 20w 30W 50W 60w 80W and so on.

But the disadvantage of 2D fiber laser engraving machine is that it can only work on a flat surface. The more function is to use the Rotary System, we can also use it to mark some cylinders, such as cups. Or rings, bracelets, etc. Even in this case, it has many Limited on curved markings. So 3D fiber laser engraving machine and 2.5D laser engraving machine became popular in the market. A large part of it meets many needs of customers. But what is the difference between these three types of machines, the following BOGONG MACHINERY article will show you

******2.5D laser engraving machine

From technical part, we called it 2.5D because laser head still with a 2D laser head, but 2.5D with motorized lifting pillar. And galvo head can be controlled by software. software can control laser head move when machine working, so it can achieve 3D engraving. it means 3D laser, Z axis mirror inside laser head to move back and forth; 2.5D, Z axis stands for the third mirror to move automatically

2.5D laser engraving machine can finish all 2D laser work and can make 3D laser engraving on flat plate. 2.5D CANNOT make 3D engraving on curved part.  

Lifting pillar of 2.5D laser machine must be motorized type. Because laser head need to re adjust the focus during engraving, 2.5D laser engraving machine show from below youtube link:

*******3D laser engraver

3D means dynamic focusing. Compared with ordinary 2D fiber laser machines, 3D laser marking machines use different Laser head. Ordinary 2D fiber Laser Machine is use 2D galvo scanning head have only two mirrors, while 3D fiber Laser machine is use 3D Dynamic focus scanning head scanning heads have three mirrors. The third mirror can be moved back and forth. This is the key technology of 3D laser marking machine.


1. 3D fiber Laser mainly Application:

There are three main applications for 3D laser marking machines. Including curved engraving, Embossing laser engraving and large-working Area engraving.

1) Curved laser engraving

The 3D fiber laser Machine working area is usually below 300*300mm. We can use it to engraving curved and Ball surfaces. Unlike rotary engraving, 3D curved surface engraving has a very high accuracy, automatically adjusts the focal length,Mainly 3-axis dynamic focus technology and layered engraving technology. According to the different points in the working area, the focus is automatically adjusted through the machine software control, so that the 3D fiber laser marking machine can make molds and stamps, copper coins, mold steel and other materials. and works faster. It is the same as the ordinary 2D fiber laser machine


2) Embossing laser engraving

Embossing laser engraving is as popular as Curved laser engraving. We can use it to make many handicrafts, gifts, molds Retro coins and stamp, etc. But the purpose is Mainly for Material do deep engraving

Although the 2D laser machine can do deep engraving, But all the depths are the same, on the same plane. 3D laser engraving can reach different depths, behaving like a three-dimensional pattern, with a three-dimensional effect. .

Make the pattern more vivid


3) Large-working area engraving.

As we know the maximum working area size of the 2D laser marking machine is 300*300mm. But many customers require a larger working size. Using 3D laser marking machine, usually its working size can reach 600*600mm. As for the larger size, it requires a customized scan head.

Different on 2D 2.5D and 3D laser machine In terms of appearance:

1. Diiferent on Laser head:

In terms of galvanometer: 2D and 2.5D galvanometers are basically the same. The interior consists of two lenses on the X and Y axes. The 3D machine has a larger galvanometer, mainly because there are three lenses inside the galvanometer, which are XYZ-axis lenses.


3. Different on laser engraving software and control board about 2D 2.5D and 3D laser engraving machine

Board: 2D standard machine is EZCAD2.14.10 version board, , 3D laser engraving machine mostly use Lenmark3ds software.

differnt control board, different software, EZcad3 relies on the electric column to realize the autofocus under the premise of fixed workpiece height and focal length, and relies on the electric column to drive the vibrating lens to achieve autofocus. To a certain extent, it imitates the working principle of 3D machine dynamic focus, so why 2.5D machine can do 3D relief s reason.

Software aspect:

The software version of the 2D machine is EZcad 2.14.10, the interface is simple and the stability is better, for the company's promotion, there is sufficient practical basis and video materials.

The 2.5D machine software is an EZCAD3 plane embossed board. 2.5D board is EZcad3 according to the date update as the version number, board model is DLC-M4-2D flat embossed board, 

The 3D machine software is Lenmark, which specifies the corresponding board software for Feeltek, sure there also have other 3D software, like BJJCZ EZCAD3 3D version, compare 3D software, 3D lenmark widely use compare with EZCAD 3 3d version, hope they can come to mature soon.

Summary: Funtion aspects about 2D 2.5D 3D laser engraving machine:

The functions that 2D machines can achieve are marking, 2D engraving and deep engraving. The maximum thickness is about 2mm metal sheet cutting. Of course, you can manually adjust the focus to achieve greater thickness cutting, but this is a method, not a machine function, so let’s leave it alone. .

The 2.5D machine can realize the functions of marking, 2D, 3D engraving and relief, and theoretically larger thickness cutting (experiment is still needed, but the edge cutting effect is not required under the premise) depending on the height of the workpiece can be set to a fixed value At the same time, the focal length of the field lens of a single format is fixed, so to a certain extent, it is possible to realize a larger thickness cutting through the function setting in the software.

The functions that 3D machines can achieve are marking, 2D, 3D engraving and embossing. However, due to the influence of the field lens, I personally think that the cutting ability is weak and cannot realize the cutting of large thickness metal sheets. The more important advantage is the engraving, precision and effect. .

3D laser engraving machine also called 3D laser marking machine, 3D laser marker, 3D fiber laser engraving machine, it's the most powerful laser engraving machine in market, so if you have several laser work to do, then choose 3D laser machine

If you just sample on engraving on flat surface, or rotary engraving, and no need 3d relief laser work, then choose 2D laser machine, in the same time, you want engraving 3d relief on flat surface, then choose 2.5D laser engraving machine.
