Air Compressor For Laser Cutting

When choosing compressor you need to consider if it will be able to constantly provide Air Compressor For Laser Cutting china desired pressure and volume of air. Little airbrush compressors little compressors boast amazing pressure figures but really poor flow rates enough limited to airbrush pistols. Even if small compressor would be able to push enough air it will likely overheat in short while.

Our laser cutter came with little membrane pump (Smallest upon the picture), I do not know very well what specifications it has but stream of air was very weak. It is enough if all you want to do is engrave, although actually then we got significant smoke traces around engraved picture.

it was rated for level of ~2.4cfm and had a 1 gallon container which can be filled to 58 PSI. It were able to give us continuous 1 bar (14 PSI) of pressure, but it had to operate all the time and overheat badly within five minutes.

Third and current compressor we got was 6cfm rated belt driven device with 13 gallon tank which is filled to ~100psi. With this unit we are able to run at constant ~2bar (31psi) without fear of overheating since compressor engine is not on at all times. Using reserve surroundings in tank we can also press up to 3.5bar (50psi) for short jobs.

The best setup in my opinion will be compressor rated to >6cfm, huge 70+ gallons tank rated to 10bar (140psi) and software air control via solenoid valve.
