  • Updated

Below is a list of frequently asked questions about the LP4.

  • The main difference between LP2, LP3, and LP4 lies in their laser source, laser power, engraving area, and suitable material types.

    Laser Source & Power:

    • LP2 is a 5W 450nm blue laser.
    • LP3 is a 1W 1064nm infrared laser.
    • The LP4 is a dual laser with a 10W 450nm blue diode laser and a 2W 1064nm infrared laser. It combines the two laser sources of the LP2 and LP3 while doubling their power.

    Engraving Area:

    • The LP2's standard working area is 100 x 100 mm (square)
    • The LP3's standard working area is 115 x 80 mm (oval)
    • The LP4's standard working area is 160 x 120 mm (square)

    Materials:

    • The LP2 is suitable for engraving on paper, wood, leather, MDF, stainless steel, dark opaque acrylic, bamboo, fabric, dark glass, ceramic, jade, marble, shale, cement, brick, parts of painted metals, etc.
    • The LP3 can work on almost all metals and plastics, including gold, silver, copper, aluminum, titanium, stainless steel, platinum, acrylic, ABS, etc.
    • The LP4 can work on all the materials LP2 and LP3 can work on and more.

  • The input power is DC (24V, 5A); AC (100-240V, 50-60HZ).
    Its output electric power is (24V, 5A) 120W.
    its output laser power is 2W (peak power 20KW) for the 1064nm infrared laser source and 10W for the 450nm blue laser source.

  • The standard working area for LP4 is 160 x 120 mm. When connected to the Slide Extension, its engraving area can be expanded to 160 x 300 mm.

  • LP4's working speed is up to 4000 mm/s. It varies depending on the file format, image resolution, and the user's selected power and depth settings.

  • The LP4's dual lasers enable it to work on a very wide range of materials.
    The 10W Blue Diode Laser is suitable to engrave organic materials including paper, wood, leather, MDF, stainless steel, bamboo, non-synthetic fabrics, dark glass, ceramic, jade, marble, shale, cement, brick, etc, as well as dark/opaque acrylic and coated or painted metals.
    The 2W Infrared Laser can engrave on or etch 0.1mm deep into almost all types of metals and plastics, including gold, silver, copper, aluminum, titanium, stainless steel, platinum, acrylic, ABS, etc.

  • The LP4's 10W 450nm Blue Diode Laser can cut paper, wood, bamboo, non-synthetic fabrics, leather, and dark opaque acrylic. It is able to cut through balsa wood up to 8 mm and dark opaque acrylic up to 5 mm in one pass.

    While the 2W 1064nm infrared laser source of LP4 can not cut through anything but only mark on suitable materials or engrave into them with less than 0.1mm depth in one pass.

  • The LDS App, LDS Software, and LightBurn are all LP4 compatible.
