Laser Engraving Machine

Overview

Laser engraving machines have been increasingly used in the manufacturing of accessories and jewelry, as well as for marking and engraving on various materials such as wood, metal and others. Laser optics and numerical computer control techniques (CNC) are used to direct the concentrated laser beam on different materials which melt, burn or evaporate leaving a high quality surface. Importing these machines is very expensive but many innovators have designed and manufactured their own machines locally!

The Solution

The winning solution was of an engraving machine using laser diode to engrave into artificial leather and other materials with a suitable ventilation system and enclosure for safety purposes. The machine is 40 by 30 cm working active area. The solution cost ranges from 15k til 20k using available materials in the Egyptian market.

The solution is currently being built to be implemented with the reward provided by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology in collaboration with Al Tadamun Microfinance Foundation.

The Challenge

The “Laser Engraving Machine” challenge aimed to manufacture a locally-designed laser cutting machine locally-designed and manufactured laser cutting machine.
