Depth of Field – short or long focal lengths

Posted by Ana Walters on

Depth of Field – short or long focal lengths We are asked a lot about the difference between a short focal length compared to a longer focal length lens. Normally the lower the focal length (1.5”, 2”), the finer the point size of the beam.  Traditionally a 1.5” or 2” focal length lens works best for engraving.  I would suggest:  LM-20-Z-50.8-ET2.0-DBAR.  (We offer several diameters.) The longer the focal length (4”), the longer “depth of field”.  Best for cutting. To cut material, you will need a longer “depth of field”. Traditionally the 4” focal length lens offers a longer “depth...
