Many companies that manufacture 3D printers are now getting involved in the laser engraving industry. Ortur and Atomstack, for example, are two examples of companies that have made the transition early and are one step ahead of the rest in the laser engraver production line. I have recently learned that LONGER has also released a desktop engraver, which is a very competitive model, the RAY5.
LONGER RAY5 laser engraver has a built-in 3.5” touch screen with a friendly user interface. This allows us to cut multiple pieces of plywood or images to be engraved without tying up your computer to run it. The Longer Ray5 has a built-in controller and no computer required to connect the laser engraver all the time. Save your file to a TF card, and use it to run the Ray5 for engraving or cutting.
This laser engraver comes with the latest FAC laser technology for compressed laser point, the size of the point is 0.08*0.08mm; The smaller size of the point, the more focused the energy. This allows the engraving or cutting to be much stronger. The output power of the laser module reaches 5-5.5W.
RAY5 is built with an ESP32 chipset and includes a WIFI connection for the engraver to router. This 32-bit chipset is running at 240MHz. That means it is faster and more powerful than comparably equipped machines with 8-bit chipsets. As an added bonus, the RAY5 supports WIFI connections through the web page or App to control engraving or cutting.
LONGER RAY5 is designed with move protection and thermal protection functions. If the machine is moved while in use, Move protection will initiate auto-shutdown for personal safety. Thermal protection initiates an auto-shutdown if it detects a flame or the engraving area overheats.
The engraver comes with a power switch to turn the power on or off. The laser module has an acrylic cover. This shields the laser light to help protect eyes. You will want to wear eye protection for laser scatter as well. RAY5 laser engraver is upgradable. The power supply and mainboard support an upgrade to a more powerful 8W/10W laser module.
If you have read my previous articles then you will remember my introduction of the flagship laser engraver, the Atomstack X7 Pro. It has a separate touch operated panel for offline work. Now, the LONGER RAY5 follows this design with a 3.5″ screen for offline work.
When engraving, it is also necessary to be safe. For this reason, you should always wear safety goggles and, in addition, you should not be in close proximity when engraving. The good news is that you can engrave with it completely worry-free as this machine offers many safety features. For example, if the LONGER RAY5 is tilted or moved, the engraving will stop immediately.
