Odin Lens Selection

Odin Lens Selection

Preface: This article covers the difference between the Four Lens options for the Odin series machines. The same principles apply to the Bolt as well.

The  Four Lens Options Side by Side:

Engraving Test:

The same picture was engraved with all four lens with the same power speed with the picture parameters set as shown:

Speed: 1500mm/s
Power: 30%
Picture mode: Halftone
Cells per inch: 90


1.5 inch lens:

The 1.5″ lens has the smallest burn dot to provide the most detailed engraving effect. But at the same time it has the shortest cutting thickness

2.0 inch lens:

The thickness of the 2.0″ lens cuts and the engraving effect are well balanced for most cases

2.5 inch lens:

The 2.5″ lens is ideal for thicker materials that require engraving and cutting

4.0 inch lens:

4.0″ lens engraving fidelity is not as good as other lenses but it is meant for cutting thicker materials

Dot Spacing Comparison:

When we have finished engraving all the images, we can then use a magnifying glass to compare the size of the burn dots engraved by each lens

Lens Selection based on Engraving and Cutting needs:

Fineness of engraving:
1.5″ better than 2.0″ better than 2.5″ better than 4. 0″

Depth of cut:
4.0″ better than 2.5″ better than 2.0″ better than 1.5″
