Laser engraving and cutting machine with a 20/40 W laser module and optional enclosure.

The Snapmaker Ray laser cutting and engraving machine represents the pinnacle of precision and innovation, elevating craftsmanship and fostering boundless creativity. This machine is designed and manufactured by Snapmaker, also known for the multifunctionl and modular solutions such as Snapmaker 2.0 3 in 1Snapmaker Artisan or the Snapmaker J1 3D printer.

Snapmaker Ray is available with either a 20 W or a 40 W laser module, with or without enclosure. Equipped with a 400 × 600 mm work area, this machine accommodates projects as diverse as intricate maps, detailed furniture models, and door signs with ease. The maximum height of the processed object is 160 mm (including two sets of cylindrical feet).

Leveraging cutting-edge laser beam combining technology, the 40 W laser module sets new standards in performance, utilizing laser beam splitters and beam shaping optics for exceptional results. This enables single-pass cutting capabilities: 20 mm pinewood (40 W), 15 mm basswood plywood (40 W), and 10 mm basswood plywood (20 W). The lasers operate in the 450-460 nm wavelength and the laser spot dimensions are 0.08 x 0.1 mm for the 20 W laser module and 0.1 x 0.15 mm for the 40 W laser module.

Laser focusing becomes effortless with the intuitive focus lever, ensuring precise calibration in three steps. Additional features include crosshair alignment, laser safety shield, orientation detection, overheat protection, and a built-in quick swap mechanism.

Engineered with industrial-grade linear rails supporting working speeds up to 500 mm/s (cutting speed is 10-20 mm/s), the Snapmaker Ray ensures precision and durability. Since safety is paramount in laser cutting and engraving, Ray's laser is certified as Laser Class 1 by the FDA. The machine's optional brown acrylic enclosure panels safeguard against laser hazards, while an embedded door-detection sensor halts operations upon door opening for a secure workspace.

The Snapmaker Air Assist feature prevents charring

To ensure optimal quality of each cutting or engraving job, the Air Assist system, managed through the Snapmaker Luban software, regulates airflow to prevent charring, maintain a clean laser lens, and channel fumes away through the grid table. Integration with the Snapmaker Air Purifier further enhances air filtration and ensures a safe and healthy workflow.

Cutting capabilities extend to various materials, including basswood, pinewood, plywood, beech, walnut, bamboo, MDF, leather, fabric, canvas, corrugated paper cardboard, plastic, dark acrylic (excluding blue), and even stainless steel (0.1 mm thickness) with the 40 W laser.

Support for design files such as STL, SVG, JPEG, PNG, JPG, BMP, DXF, SNAPLZR, and processing files in NC format ensures seamless integration with third-party design software such as Lightburn. Connectivity options include USB and WiFi for streamlined operations. The capabilities of the Snapmaker Ray machine can be further expanded with the help of the Snapmaker add-ons such as the Ray rotary module or the Ray 2 W infrared laser module.
