How Much is a Fiber Laser Engraving Machine?
How much is a fiber laser engraving machine? I believe many buyers in the early inquiry stage have found that not only the price varies greatly between different models, the price gap between manufacturers is also very large. The inexpensive fiber laser engraving machine can be two of thousands of dollars, whereas the expensive fiber laser engraving machine may cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Then what factors cause the price gap of a fiber laser engraving machine to be so large?
Today we will figure out the secrets behind the price gaps.
To find the reasons cause the price gap, we should first know the main factors that determine the pricing of a fiber laser engraving machine.
Core Part That Costs the Most
The fiber laser engraving machine is currently the most flexible processing equipment in metal engraving. It performs undisputed superior quality engraving on various metal materials, including stainless steel, carbon steel, brass, and aluminum, etc. Thus it is also known as a metal laser engraving machine or laser metal engraving machine.
Generally, the heart of a metal laser engraving machine, fiber laser generator, is the most expensive core part. The higher the laser power, the higher the price of the laser engraving machine. The price gap is huge if you make a comparison between a 20W fiber laser engraving machine and a 100W fiber laser engraving machine.
What’s more, the price of the laser generator also varies greatly between brands. For instance, the most popular fiber laser generators among Chinese metal laser engraving machine manufacturers are IPG, Raycus, and Max. The price is also of great difference. The IPG laser that widely used for engraving reflective metals, costs almost double that of Raycus or Max. Whereas the latter stands out for cost-effectiveness.
Different brands of laser generators have different effects, but the difference in engraving thickness is basically not big.
1.Price Gap Between Different Suppliers
This is a long-term accumulation of word of mouth. The brand effect brings brand premium.
With the same configuration, the prices of Top brands will be relatively higher, and it is understandable. Such as mobile phone, iPhone is more expensive than others for the same memory.
2. Manufacturer strength
This often means product technology and quality. It is obvious that the more powerful companies have more funds, manpower and material resources for product research and development and technology upgrades. Their products are better in quality and prices are relatively high.
3. Service capabilities
Fiber laser engraving machine is a high-tech product. In the process of use, due to improper use, working environment or long-term shutdown factors, some malfunctions may occur. Therefore, after-sales service is a must when choosing fiber laser engraving machines.
Generally speaking, the after-sales service of large companies is guaranteed with nationwide technical support and after-sales service system. Small companies may have a discount on after-sales services due to capital cost considerations. Be careful when making the final decision on your fiber laser engraving machine.
