  As a new comer to the market, one always facesthis question. How to choose the laser cutter that is the most affordable aswell as of the highest quality needed for one’s business requirements. 

  So I researched the advantages and drawbacksof laser cutters between Chinese makers and local ones. The main factorsinclude features, quality, after sales service, transport, and price. Because most manufacturers are either located in USA or China, and the Americans are known for higher technical specifications and features, your choice can varydepending on your requirements. Some people pay more attention to quality, somepeople are more concerned with the manufacturers’ service, and some with price,but also worried about the warranty. I will analytically compare the lasercutters from America, from Chinese manufacturers and your local ones.
