Laser machines are not only for the schools, universities, Fortune 500 companies, and manufacturers. These wonderful cutting and engraving machines come in many sizes and models at different price levels to meet many customer needs. A hobbyist can find the perfect machine for them in a size and at a price that works for them. Computer-guided laser technology can be an important part of the creative process.
Part of the CO2 powered laser machine is the laser tube. These tubes come in DC or RF options. What is that? LASER is really initials standing for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission Radiation.
Which Type of Tube To Choose.
The expectations and end use of the laser equipment will play a large part in choosing the type of laser tube. But, the glass DC laser tubes cost about 10% of what the RF lasers cost. This is because DC laser tubes are lower technology. The two types have advantages and disadvantages to consider. The DC laser equipment costs a lot less and performs well but does not last as long as the RF laser machines. The RF laser machines may give a slightly rougher edge when pulsed, but generally very good results. RF equipment also produces good high precision engraving.
