Precision laser engraving made easy with Creality

3D printing innovation

Kemtek principal Creality is committed to developing innovative 3D printing devices and consumables to support start-up enterprises and creatives working on craft and prototype projects in small business and home contexts.

Creality have made a name for themselves through developing intuitive devices that make the advantages of 3D printing more accessible. In this way, they are helping small enterprises and hobbyists to achieve exceptional results in terms of 3D printing, precise cutting, and exceptionally detailed laser engraving.

Versality and cost-effectiveness have made Creality market-leaders in the field, while their range of quality filaments and other consumables ensures that even novice users can achieve consistently excellent results.

In this blog, we’re going to focus on one particular aspect of Creality’s product range, namely their laser engravers.

Laser engraving

This technique enables designs, logos or text to be permanently etched into substrates for a professional, lasting impact. It’s ideal for branding applications, as well as for adding very fine detailing that cannot be achieved in any other way.

Key aspects to look out for when selecting a laser engraver are its ease of use, software compatibility, and safety – the relatively high-powered lasers used in engraving machines pose a potential threat to the operator’s eyes if used incorrectly. Creality’s latest laser engravers score highly against all these criteria, so let’s take a closer look at two of their new key models that represent a welcome extension of Creality’s offering.

Creality CV-01 Pro Engraver

The Creality CV-01 Pro Engraver offers an easy route into laser engraving, with its simplicity of use belying the fact that it packs some serious computing power. The single-button operation gives you access to a world of intelligent software support and outstanding results,

Designed for use with materials including paper, wood board, bamboo board, leather, fabric, acrylic and plastic, this laser engraver can be used by operators who lack previous experience thanks to its intuitive operation.

As with all Creality devices, user safety is a priority – the CV-01 offers FDA Class 1 eye protection, including failsafe safety measures designed to prevent exposure to the laser beam. Any dust or fumes generated by engraving activities are safely trapped by the cotton filters that purify the exhaust smoke. This further expands the range of materials that can be used, and the array of settings in which this Creality laser engraver can be used.

Multi-software support

The 240MHz operating speed of the CV-01 ensures that its compatibility with a  range of transmission control requirements, as well as with Creality’s proprietary CrealityLaser software and other similar engraving management programmes. This offers you enhanced versatility no matter which package you are familiar with.  

Creality CR-Laser Falcon Engraver

Precision engraving offers multiple advantages, not least cost savings through reduced production time and the elimination of errors, as well as ease of use that makes laser engraving accessible to more enterprises.

This is an area in which the Creality CR-Laser Falcon Engraver excels – thanks to its built-in self-levelling technology, which provides a stable and durable platform. Creality’s quick focus system (which uses an optional sliding fast focus facilitator) offers further timesaving opportunities, while the poly-lens spot compression laser represents cutting edge engraving technology at its best.

When compared to previous-generation models, this new device offers a smaller laser spot size and increased speed for enhanced precision and the ability to cut through significantly thicker substrates.

Accuracy, over and over again

Precision results are made even easier thanks to the preview function which uses blue light to indicate the engraving area before you commit to engraving, while repeated identical results can be achieved using the auxiliary grid plate to ensure exact repetition of previous results.
