The laser marking machine is a machine used to mark the surface of the material. There are many types of laser marking machines. According to the laser, they can be divided into CO2 laser marking machines, semiconductor laser marking machines, etc.; according to the wavelength, they can be divided into deep ultraviolet laser marking machines and green laser marking machines. Laser engraving machine and laser marking machine have similar functions, but there are obvious differences in definition, applied material, depth and thickness, price, etc. Let's take a look at the laser marking machine.

1. What is a laser marking machine

Laser marking machine is a mechanical device that uses a laser beam to permanently mark the surface of various substances. The working principle of the laser marking machine is to expose the deep material through the evaporation of the surface material, or to "engrave" traces through the chemical and physical changes of the surface material caused by light energy, or to burn off part of the material through light energy to show the required Etched pattern, text.

Laser marking machines are mainly used in some occasions that require finer and higher precision. Used in electronic components, integrated circuits (IC), electrical appliances, mobile communications, hardware products, tool accessories, precision instruments, glasses and clocks, jewelry, auto parts, plastic buttons, building materials, PVC pipes.

2. What types of laser marking machines are there?

There are many types of laser marking machines, which are mainly classified according to two factors: laser and wavelength:

1. Press the laser

Laser marking machines can be divided into: CO2 laser marking machines, semiconductor laser marking machines, YAG laser marking machines, and fiber laser marking machines according to different lasers. According to the different laser visibility, it is divided into: ultraviolet laser marking machine (invisible), green laser marking machine (visible laser), infrared laser marking machine (invisible laser).

2. By wavelength

According to the different laser wavelengths, it can be divided into: deep ultraviolet laser marking machine (266nm), green laser marking machine (532nm), lamp pump YAG laser marking machine (1064nm), semiconductor side pump YAG laser marking machine, semiconductor terminal Pump YAG laser marking machine (1064nm), fiber laser marking machine (1064nm), CO2 laser marking machine (10.64um).

3. What are the differences between laser engraving machine and laser marking machine

1. Different definitions

(1) A laser engraving machine is a technological device that uses lasers to engrave materials that need to be engraved. Laser engraving machines can also be called laser cutting machines, laser engraving machines, etc., which shoot lasers on almost all materials such as wood products, acrylic grains, plastic plates, metal plates, and stone.

(2) The laser marking machine uses a laser beam to evaporate the surface material to expose the deep material, resulting in the chemical change and physical change of the surface material to engrave traces, or to burn off part of the material through light energy, showing the required etching. graphics and text.

2. Different application materials

(1) Laser engraving machines generally engrave or cut non-metallic materials.

(2) Since the laser marking machine does not require deep engraving, it only realizes the marking by marking the logo and name. Most of the metal and non-metal materials can basically be marked. Use very little cutting.

3. Different depth and speed

(1) The laser engraving machine can engrave or cut in large stroke size, and the depth is far more than that of the laser marking machine.

(2) The speed of the laser marking machine is relatively fast, generally reaching 7000mm/s.

4, the price is different

(1) The price of the laser marking machine varies from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands depending on the corresponding models selected for different materials.

(2) Laser engraving and cutting machine, the price of low power is much cheaper than that of laser marking machine.
