Meet the Mighty AlgoLaser Alpha 22W Laser Cutter

AlgoLaser has recently announced its Alpha 22W laser engraver and cutter with astonishing engraving capabilities. With their latest COS technology laser module, fast cutting speeds, and plenty of other features it will lead the market.

The AlgoLaser Alpha 22W laser cutter is designed with home users and small business owners in mind, providing a durable, dependable, and user-friendly option for everyone. Let’s look at its features and see what it can do.

Focused 22W Laser Module Technology

An explanation of the 2nd generation COS technology of the Algolaser Alpha that lets users cut thin stainless steel.

The AlgoLaser Alpha 22W utilizes advanced second-generation COS technology that incorporates a polarized beam combination. In simple words, when compared to typical 20W laser cutters, this technology improves the Alpha laser’s performance by up to 40%.

Furthermore, the spot size on the Alpha is 40% smaller than that of comparable lasers, with a nearly 1:1 ratio on both low (30%) and high power (100%). The size of the spot is 0.08 x 0.07 mm at 30% power and 0.16 x 0.14 mm at 100% power. This precision makes it possible to etch more intricate designs with exceptional accuracy.

500+ Shades of Colored Artwork

With the new 22W COS module, you can now engrave your projects in over 500 color shades. The laser has the ability to oxidize the stainless steel material during engraving, allowing you to add unique shades wherever you see fit. This feature is perfect for artists, hobbyists, and creators who want to make their creations stand out and add a layer of uniqueness to them.

Incredible Cutting Capabilities

The Algolaser Alpha features impressive cutting capabilities. Its 22W laser can cut through 30mm Pinewood in one pass, while other lasers may need more than one go.

But that’s not all. The Alpha can also cut through 10 mm black acrylic and 0.1 mm stainless steel in a single pass. For the even thicker materials, it can cut up to 45 mm of black acrylic in 15 passes, 20 mm of Paulownia wood in 3 passes, and 20mm of White Oak in 5 passes.

This cutting performance is all thanks to the new COS laser module and helps you finish more work in less time.

Fast Engraving Speeds

The AlgoLaser Alpha 22W laser machine has the ability to engrave at speeds of up to 400 mm/s. Thanks to its robust construction, the laser module remains stable, making it possible to achieve such high speeds without losing accuracy.

According to AlgoLaser, the Alpha can engrave a 210 x 280 mm grayscale picture in 36 minutes. This is much faster compared to other similar machines that can take up to 270 minutes to complete the same task.

Powerful Motherboard

The Algolaser Alpha 22W’s dual-core CPU gives it a big performance boost in terms of speed. You get 32% faster CPU speeds and a 50% improvement in energy savings compared to CPUs used in other similar laser machines.

When using WiFi, your files will load up to 80 percent quicker, thanks to the speedier CPU. It cuts down on the time needed to prepare the laser and makes you more productive.

The Alpha has 8MB of RAM, 8MB of storage memory, and a 32GB SD card built-in. This is enough space for future upgrades and improvements to the laser. Additionally, you can update the firmware via OTA and SD card, streamlining the updating process.

Plug & Play Smart Air Pump

The Alpha 22W is one of the few laser engravers to have an air-pump included in the box. Its smart air-pump automatically adjusts the airflow based on the laser cutting speed and power. And you can control it directly using LightBurn or LaserGRBL software.

This efficient control and smart capability helps you get clean cuts and reduces the chances of burning the edges.

Safety First

Several safeguards are included into the design of the AlgoLaser Alpha 22W laser. These include machine offset detection and protection, beam detection and protection, an emergency stop, and a key lock, among others.

With these safety features in place, accidents are much less likely to happen, making the Alpha laser a safe choice for use at home.

User Friendly Design

AlgoLaser Alpha’s laser boasts a user-friendly design that sets it apart from its competitors. The laser module features a detachable magnetic cover that ensures quick and safe laser focusing.

The Alpha model comes equipped with pre-installed belts, wiring, and cable management. This makes the assembly process simple for both beginners and experienced users.

Additionally, the Alpha’s semi-automatic focus system makes laser focusing an effortless task. It’s particularly useful for hobby-laser machine users who are new to the process.
