How To Choose A Laser Marking Machine?
November 6, 2019
The laser marking machine is irradiated on the product by a high-density laser beam, and the surface absorbs laser energy, thereby causing melting, ablation, evaporation on the surface of the material, thereby forming a permanent mark. Nowadays, laser marking machines have been widely used in various industries, and have played a role in anti-counterfeiting, exquisite and good looking.
At present, laser marking machines can be roughly divided into CO2 laser marking machines, fiber laser marking machines, ultraviolet laser marking machines, etc. They have different marking effects for marking materials.
In general, the fiber laser marking machine is suitable for marking metal, plastic and other materials.
The CO2 laser machine is mainly for non-metallic materials, such as acrylic, transparent plastic, ceramic, glass, etc., while the ultraviolet laser machine is mainly used for super Hard material, such as water pipes.
So how do you choose a suitable laser marking machine? You need to know these points!
1. Marking machine laser source.
Look at the material you want to process, metal, plastic, label paper and other materials use a longer wavelength fiber laser marking machine; bamboo, cloth, ceramics, acrylic and other materials with a shorter wavelength CO2 laser marking Machine; if it is a heat sensitive material such as film, fruit, egg, carton, tempered glass, etc., use a UV laser marking machine with moderate wavelength.
Of course, it does not mean that a material is only suitable for one type of laser source. The same material can use a variety of laser sources, depending on the level of fineness you have processed.
2. Marking machine power.
Laser power is sometimes the key to determining speed and effectiveness. Generally speaking, like UV engraving paper, film, plastic, marking with low power 1.2W, but engraving glass requires UV 3W, even 5W power to engrave It is necessary to use 20W optical fiber, but if you want high efficiency and high speed, you need 30W or higher to achieve.
3. The main hardware structure of the marking machine.
The main hardware structure of the laser marking machine, including laser, laser scanning galvanometer, focusing system, laser power supply and calculation notification system, you only need to choose whether to import or domestic according to your processing needs, especially for precision. High requirements, and the inkjet printer manufacturers should be clear.
4. The price of the marking machine.
In fact, the price is changed according to the customer's demand configuration (the size of the marking machine power, the choice of imported brands or domestic brands, etc.), so here is only a rough reference price, the general laser marking machine market price of 40,000 20,000 to 10,000.
In addition, the laser equipment in use of precision, engraving effect, speed and coordination of automation, custom fixtures and other requirements, must be presented to the manufacturer in advance, in the process of testing and out of the program to confirm, so as not to buy a non-conforming use The standard machine affects the user experience.
