    Default HELP : about to buy a new small laser machine

    good morning to all friends of the beautiful and professional forum

    scuse me :
    I have a question to ask yourself:
    I am about to buy a new small laser machine

    I saw a few machine:

    • - Trotec speedy 100
    • - Epilog mini 18
    • - Epilog zing 16
    • - Thunderbird nova 24


    What experts do you advise me?

    I use it to create small objects, small gadgets
    I have to cut the wood, leather and affect different materials

    I need a small car and not very expensive

    I need here in Italy,, if there are other brands accept tips

    THANK YOU to all those who will give me advice
    Thanks again
    Massimo (sicily)

    Ciao Massimo!
    There are not many Italians visiting this forum

    All CO2 lasers can cut and engrave, BUT the ones that are optimized for cutting are not good for engraving and vise versa. You will have to decide on your priorities. From your list the Nova24 is best for cutting. These models of Trotec and Epilog are for engraving.
    If you can provide a more detailed description of your projects (sizes, materials, thickness, etc.) and your budget you will get more specific suggestions. Basically try to define your production specifications and acceptable tolerances - what is good enough for you and what is not. Keep in mind that not all materials are safe to process with a laser. Some will produce toxic fumes when processed.
    My general advice is to be patient, learn as mach as you can for the technology on a component level and when you fill confident make an educated choice yourself. Don't relay too much on recommendations as no one will know exactly your needs and there are no universal answers.

    Best,
    Storen

    I agree with Storen, learn and ask more before you purchase the laser.
