LaserPecker recently announced a Pro version of their LaserPecker portable, affordable, compact laser engraver. Launched earlier this week on Kickstarter, the LaserPecker Pro surpassed its modest funding goal of $10,000 in just 14 minutes and $200,000 with over three weeks left to go in the campaign. LaserPecker states their engraver can burn images, words, and patterns on nearly every material — food, metal, plastic, leather, and more.
According to the company, “LaserPecker Pro is upgraded with an auto-adjusting support stand that sets up and focuses in seconds. All you have to do is put the engraving target on the spot. The built-in sensors of the stand will measure the distance between the laser generator and the target and automatically adjust the height to make sure the focal point is the correct distance from the surface of the object.”
LaserPecker upgraded the laser on the Pro version from a 450nm blue laser with 0.3mm light spot to a 450nm blue-violet laser with 0.15mm beam, which the company claims has over a 10,000-hour working lifespan. The Pro is a plug-and-play engraver ready to go outside the box and can use multiple power sources, including wall outlets, battery packs, and via USB Type-C cable.
Users can take advantage of a smartphone app to upload their sketches, images, or text, and edit them using a series of tools with simple controls before porting them over to the engraver. The LaserPecker Pro also has several built-in safety features, including the foldable laser shield and motion detector that will power down the machine if accidental movement is detected.
As mentioned earlier, the LaserPecker Pro laser engraver is available now on Kickstarter with pledges starting at $269, which includes the engraver, safety goggles, materials package, magnetic protective shield, USB cable, and tripod stand. At the $369 level, you get the same goodies box, only it comes with the auto-focus support stand as well.
