Questions to Ask Before Buying Laser Equipment

Do you need an industrial laser to help solve some of your manufacturing challenges? Thinking of buying some laser equipment? What are some questions you should ask before buying laser equipment?


First, what will you need the equipment for? Do you have a product that needs laser marking, etching, welding, cutting or drilling? Will the new laser perform the task? You might want to talk with a company like Seiffert Industrial about your application needs, and then figure out, with their help, what the laser solution is, considering the type, range and power. And obviously, you’ll want equipment that meets quality standards for your company and industry. 


Next, time is money and you don’t want to waste time with problems or “issues.” Therefore, the equipment that you acquire needs to meet a certain cycle time. And the laser equipment you do get will need to be integrated into a larger system, right? Ensure that it runs at a functional speed that works well with your current system. You want equipment that works quickly and consistently. 

Part Location

Finally, you should think about performance with regards to quality. How’s the machine vision– does it register the part location before processing? Then, when it comes to after part processing, how does the equipment measure the quality, readability and location? You might want to ask about optics and accessories.
