At the end of 2020, the Chinese technology manufacturer LaserPecker presented its second laser engraver, the LaserPecker 2 Pro, on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. The predecessor model was already extremely successful in the handheld 3D scanner segment on Kickstarter. The LaserPecker 2 Pro was finally able to build well on the success of its predecessor and collected over 4 million euros in investment capital via the crowdfunding platform within just six weeks.
The LaserPecker 2 Pro is an affordable handbag-sized laser engraver. With the integrated laser, the machine is capable of engraving and cutting. The portable and mobile laser engraver is particularly stable and robustly built, has a 360-degree engraving function, and the engraving area is 100 x 2000 mm. The LaserPecker 2 Pro is one of the most powerful laser engravers in the middle class under 500 € and is suitable not only for private users, but also for companies.
One of the biggest problems with many laser engravers currently on the market is that they are too bulky. They are difficult to take with you on the go. In addition, laser engravers are still too expensive to provide a good price/performance ratio. But the first generation LaserPecker Pro combined affordability and versatility and was groundbreaking.
Now, the LaserPecker 2 Por is the second generation to hit the market – and it’s a solid innovation. It combines the user-friendly interface with powerful features to make laser engraving and cutting easy and affordable for professionals, hobbyists and beginners alike.
The machine has a compact and slim design. This means that the LaserPecker 2 Pro, which is the size of a handbag and weighs 2.2 kg, can be set up in seconds and transferred easily. With just a few clicks via smartphone, laser engraving can be started by transferring images via Bluetooth 5.0.
In terms of engraving speed, LaserPecker has made a huge leap compared to its predecessor, accelerating to 600 mm/s. Perfect detail accuracy is provided by engraving resolutions of 1K, 1.3K and 2K.
The potential of the LaserPecker 2 Pro is further underpinned by the super-fast preview speed of 3750 mm/s. Square and graphic previews are fully supported by the fully digital, industrial-grade galvano scanning system, making positioning much more intuitive and accurate.
Traditional laser engravers offer limited engraving options and they can only engrave one way – on a flat table. The Laser Pecker 2 Pro, on the other hand, can engrave on uneven and curved surfaces as well as cylindrical objects thanks to 360-degree engraving.
When it comes to materials, the LaserPecker 2 Pro can handle just about anything: Stone, cement, plastic, acrylic, food, fruit, paper, leather, bamboo, wood, ceramics or bone are just some of the materials that it can engrave and cut.
