Shenzhen based 3D printer manufacturer Creality has launched their newest laser engraver, the Falcon 2 40W. An upgraded version of the Falcon2 22W, this newest model is the world’s first laser engraver to incorporate an adjustable light beam feature. What’s more, the Falcon 2 40W is the fastest, most powerful and feature-rich laser engraver Creality has ever produced.
Once a patent of industrial manufacturers, laser engraving is now being increasingly adopted by small businesses, product designers, manufacturers and hobbyists alike. Indeed, laser engraving at home or in the office is now easier and more affordable than ever before. If you are looking for a laser-engraver which offers high performance, then look no further than the Creality Falcon2 40W.
Key features of the Falcon2 40W
The Falcon2 40W incorporates a number of breakthrough features, such as adjustable spot adjustment for higher work efficiency and finer work details. This allows the Falcon2 40W to adjust the spot size according to engraving and cutting requirements. Therefore, the laser engraver is particularly well suited to cutting thicker objects with a full-power laser spot, and engraving and cutting thinner objects with a small spot.
The Falcon2 40W also offers optimized usability and safety. The integrated air-assist function not only offers stepless adjustment, but can also automatically adjust the airflow through LightBurn software to meet different cutting and carving needs.
The air assist function can also blow away dust during the engraving process, ensuring cleaner and smoother surface cutting, whilst maintaining quality and accuracy when engraving complex patterns. Smoke and dust can also be blown away, protecting the laser head lens.
The laser beam generated by the Falcon2 40W’s powerful power output also offers personalization capabilities. When stainless steel is heated by the engraver’s super powerful laser beam, the metal surface physically reacts to produce hundreds of colors, allowing for a more vivid end product.
The Creality Falcon2 40W also possesses amazing speeds of up to 25000mm/min. With a 100% improvement in carving efficiency, the Falcon2 40W allows users to spend less time creating more.
In terms of usage, the Creality Falcon2 40W supports offline adjustable preview, which can accurately locate and adjust engraving without connecting to a computer, again adding to the laser engraver’s efficiency and convenience. Using the control panel, users can short press to fine tune 1mm, and long press to adjust 10mm/s. The Falcon2 40W also supports offline use, with no internet connectivity requirements. Once a TF card is inserted, users can create anytime, anywhere.
The Creality Falcon2 40W also offers a triple monitoring system for greater user control. Airflow Monitoring allows the user to adjust the airflow based on engraving needs. Additionally, the built in Lens Monitoring system triggers an alarm when the lens becomes too dirty, helping to avoid lens breakage and frequent replacement. Flame monitoring is also incorporated, which triggers an alarm and immediately stops the laser engraver if a flame is detected.
Five additional safety protections are added to the Falcon2 40W for greater security and peace of mind. The bidirectional limit switch ensures that, if the laser hits the boundary, the laser engraver will stop automatically and a buzzer will sound an alarm. An active stop function is also added, automatically stopping the Falcon2 40W in case of accidental tilt, flip or drop, sounding an alarm and sending an alert in the process. A security lock design, emergency stop button, and laser protective cover are also incorporated for added safety and security.

The unboxing and assembly process for the Falcon2 40W is also incredibly easy and user friendly, with only 3 steps needed for full assembly. With the package including a laser module, pre-assembled frame and air assist, users can start creating quickly and easily.
Compatible with a variety of operating systems such Windows and macOS, Falcon2 40W also offers extensive software compatibility with programs such as LaserGRBL and LightBurn.
Additional features of the Falcon2 40W include outstanding motion stability, with a full aluminum structure ensuring exceptional stability, even when operating at high-speeds. Additionally, an integrated sliding rail keeps the running highly synchronized, while U-shaped wear-resistant wheels make motion more stable. Furthermore, the Falcon2 40W is adjustable to different workspaces and environments, including 3 adjustment holes on the bottom of the machine to suit different table sizes. Silicone pads, adjustable risers, and integrated cable storage features are also added.
