How much is a laser cutting machine


The cost of a laser cutting machine can vary greatly depending on a number of factors, including:

Laser type: different types of lasers (CO2, fiber, solid state) have different costs associated with them.

Power output: Machines with higher power are usually more expensive. The power output required depends on the thickness and type of material you are cutting.

Size and bed configuration: Larger cutting areas and specialized bed configurations (e.g., rotary attachments for cylindrical objects) add to the cost.

Brand and manufacturer: Well-known brands with a reputation for quality and reliability may charge more for their machines.

Add-ons: Additional features such as autofocus, auxiliary gas systems, advanced software packages and automation features may add to the cost.

Service and support: Consider the availability of technical support, warranty coverage and maintenance services, as these can also affect the total cost of ownership.

Typically, entry-level benchtop laser cutters for small hobbyist models start at about $2,000 to $5,000. Mid-range industrial-grade machines can cost from $10,000 to $50,000 or more, depending on their features and functionality. High-end large format laser cutting systems for industrial production environments can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars or more.

When purchasing a laser cutter, it is important to thoroughly research your options and consider your specific cutting needs and budgetary constraints. In addition, consider ongoing costs such as maintenance, consumables (laser tubes, lenses, gases) and software updates when determining the total cost of ownership.

Han’s Laser recommends a laser cutting machine that is customized for your industry, cutting material, cutting accuracy, and related process categories.
