When I was younger, I always wanted to label everything.
My younger brother and I would constantly fight over things, and the only way I could stake my claim on something could only be possible if I put my name on it. Doing this was easy enough on books and toys (thanks for the tip, Toy Story), but for objects with more permanence like my Game Boy, I would have my mom use her handheld engraver to put my name on them.
Technology has changed a lot since then, and while people still use pen engravers by hand, most modern engravers these days use automated laser etching.
The LaserPecker 2 (trying hard not to laugh at the name right now), is an updated version of the company’s flagship laser engraver. Featuring faster engraving speeds, a more powerful laser, and the ability to increase your printing area, this beast of a machine can engrave any surface while still being extremely portable.
Increased Engraving Speed and Resolution Options
Everyone wants a job well done in the shortest time possible, and that goes double for machines. The LaserPecker 2 not only ups the engraving speed to 600 mm/s, but it’s 5W semiconductor laser also provides three different resolution options. You can choose from the 1,000-pixel resolution for fragile surfaces like wood, leather, or thin glass; the 1,300-pixel resolution for painted surfaces; or the 2,000-pixel for those really durable metal faces.
Rotating Cylinders Allow For Curved Engraving
You wouldn’t call it a good laser engraver if you had to keep readjusting the material you want to be engraved. Luckily, the LaserPecker 2 has a variety of ways you can set up your stuff for engraving.
You can always do things old school and lay your objects flat on the printing surface for simple engraves. As for objects with curved or uneven surfaces, the two cylinders on the LaserPecker 2’s printing surface will allow the machine to rotate your stuff for hands-free engraving.
