Abstract

This paper aims to develop a low-cost laser engraving machine. Materials like plastics, acrylic, glass, wood, cardboard, and leather have been used to engrave desired inputs. It have been found that this laser engraving process has a higher precision and accuracy as compared to traditional embellishing and embossing. The laser beam acquires thermal energy, which emerges from the machine and engraves the material. CREO 2.0 software is used for the 3D modeling and simulation of the machine. Arduino and different controller boards are tried and used in assembling the machine in less time. Different dependency and dimensional tests are conducted in order to validate the machine. The results are found to be satisfactory in terms of quality and cost. The final assembly is experimentally verified which is based on a 2D gantry that is mounted with a laser LED payload for laser engraving on various compatible materials.
