Creating Marketable Laser Products with the FLUX Ador 2W Infrared Laser

Creators who need to engrave both metal and other materials typically have to buy two separate machines: one dedicated to metal and another for various materials. However, the launch of Ador has elegantly solved this problem.

In the laser engraving community, metal engraving is always a hot topic for people to discuss, unlike woods, acrylic or fabric which can simply be engraved by several kinds of lasers. People who require metal engraving often have to spend more time and money finding specialized laser engraving machines for metal. Creators who need to engrave both metal and other materials typically have to buy two separate machines: one dedicated to metal and another for various materials. However, the launch of Ador has elegantly solved this problem. Ador features a three-in-one modular design, including a diode laser, a red light laser, and a printing module. This design allows creators to switch modules according to the material and creative requirements, significantly broadening their creative possibilities.

Insight to Ador's 2W Infrared Laser Add-on

Ador 2W infrared laser operates at a 1064 nanometer wavelength, making it ideal for engraving on metal surfaces. The beam’s remarkably small diameter enables intricate designs and sophisticated engravings on various metals. revolutionizing the way you approach metalworking projects.

Metal Engraving

To illustrate the functioning of the infrared laser add-on, we’ll take stainless steel as a practical example. This will guide you through the process and help you understand how the infrared laser add-on operates. Follow these steps to gain a clearer insight into its workings.

Step 1 : Infrared Module Calibration

If you’re using the Ador for the first time, the machine has been moved or you notice a mismatch between the camera’s preview and the actual position of the engraving, it’s essential to perform Camera Calibration.

Step 4 : Parameter Setting & Start Engraving

After you’ve placed your design file on the preferred area, you can use Beam Studio’s sidebar to adjust gradients and curves to your liking. Once you’ve made these modifications, just hit ‘Start’ to send the file to the machine. The camera preview of metallic materials might cause reflections, making it difficult to align the material properly. In this case, select the layer where your image file is located in the right-hand workspace’s ‘layer’ section, and choose a brighter color. This will help in achieving more precise and efficient alignment of your image file.
