for Metal Engraving and More (2023)

xTool offers separate laser modules and accessories that users can use to upgrade their engraving machine anytime they want. Previously, there were only blue laser modules available that had some limitations for various materials, such as gold, silver, plastic, due to the nature of the laser. Thus, there was a need for a special infrared laser module that could fill the gap.

We proudly announce that xTool is ready to bring its 1064nm infrared laser to the market. We are here to introduce the new laser module, which is compatible with xTool D1 Pro. The incredible laser module will enhance the capability of the machine and allow engraving more objects with optimal precision and perfection and scale your business into a new dimension.

Now, let's have a look at the exciting features of the laser module and what you can do with it. But before that, it is necessary to discuss what an infrared laser is to understand aspects of the laser module and the purpose of its creation.

What is Infrared Laser?

In laser engravers and cutters, the laser beams can be in the visible range spectrum (400-700nm) or outside the visible range the spectrum, depending on the requirements. If the color of the laser beams is in the visible range, then you will notice a certain monochromatic color of the laser. The commonly available blue laser also lies in the visible range. It has a wavelength of 440-450nm.

The laser beams correspond to a certain wavelength. There is a specific wavelength of each radiation, whether it is in the visible range or outside the visible range. When you look at the visible spectrum of light, there are seven colors. The first color is violet which has the shortest wavelength in the range of 400-420nm. The last color is Red, which has the longest wavelength in the range of 620-780nm.

The radiation after the red color has a longer wavelength and is known as Infrared. It does not lie in the visible range, so humans cannot see any color. The range of infrared is 700nm to 1mm (1,000,000nm).

An infrared laser emits infrared laser beams. The wavelength is in the infrared region. Mostly, the wavelength of such laser modules is 1064nm. This laser is quite powerful and can easily engrave those materials that can't be engraved by the blue laser. It can engrave all types of metals, plastic, and other materials to utmost perfection.

The laser module is undoubtedly very powerful. It can easily engrave on any type of metal in fewer passes. Whether it is gold, silver, platinum, or any other hard metal, it can engrave the material at high speed and offer perfect results.

The laser power is 2W, which is twice more than the other infrared DIY laser modules available on the market. Its high IR peak power of 15KW and IR average power of 2W make it suitable for engraving metals, plastics, and other hard objects in no time.

Fine Results

The laser spot of xTool's infrared laser module is 0.03 x 0.03mm, which offers exceptional engraving results. It is ideal for small objects, such as rings, bracelets, pendants, and even smaller than these. It can engrave 1.5mm high letters with excellent visibility and fine results.

The small laser spot takes care of the fine details while engraving. It is also perfect for engraving plastics. When you engrave plastic objects using a 450nm/blue laser, there are burn marks, and the result is not that great. But this infrared laser module leaves no burn marks. The result is extra clear and visible. It is finer than printing.

You can even engrave on delicate leather pieces. It leaves no burn marks and offers extra fine results on whatever you engrave.
