Before officially introducing the CO2 laser marking machine, let me introduce the differences between the fiber laser marking machine, CO2 laser marking machine and UV laser marking machine. as follows:
- The process principle is different: the optical fiber marking machine marks by passing the laser beam through the optical fiber. The CO2 marking machine is generated by exciting the laser through the CO2 gas medium. The UV laser marking machine is used to mark directly through the UV laser beam.
- The marking effect is different: the lines marked by the optical fiber marking machine are very delicate and fine. CO2 marking machines are more common in large-area marking. UV laser marking machines can mark in very small areas.
- Applicable materials are different: the optical fiber marking machine is suitable for most metal and some non-metal materials. CO2 marking machines are usually suitable for non-metallic materials. UV laser marking machine is suitable for heat-sensitive plastics, ceramics, glass and other materials.
- Different marking speeds: The marking speed of fiber optic and CO2 marking machines is usually faster than that of UV laser marking machines.
What is a CO2 laser marking machine?
Customers who want to buy a carbon dioxide laser marking machine must understand what a laser marking machine is before buying.

How to use CO2 laser marking machine correctly?
According to years of experience of HANTENCNC engineers, some problems may occur if the operation is not done properly. The following are some suggestions for the correct use of CO2 laser marking machines:
The installation of the CO2 laser marking machine needs to follow the manufacturer’s instructions or guidance. The marking machine needs to be placed in a dry and well-ventilated place. And it is necessary to correctly connect external facilities such as power supply and gas source. Special attention should be paid to the fact that the laser marking machine needs grounding protection. To ensure the safety of the operation process.
Marking machines need to adjust the beam focus to ensure stable and optimal printing quality on different materials. The adjustment process needs to be careful and ensure the correct operation sequence to avoid damage to the accessories of the marking machine.
Choose the right parameters
Select the appropriate printing parameters to ensure the best printing results on different materials. Adjust the printing depth, speed, power, laser control and other parameters. In addition, you need to pay close attention to the printing quality, and if there are signs of bad, you need to adjust the printing parameters in time.
Maintain the marking machine
The marking machine needs irregular maintenance to clean the sundries inside the machine and remove dust. In order to maintain the performance of the laser and extend the life of the marking machine.
When operating the marking machine, special attention should be paid to safety issues. During the operation, avoid attaching your fingers and clothes to the laser outlet to avoid the danger of the laser.
In general, the correct use of carbon dioxide laser marking machines requires some basic knowledge. Such as marking machine installation, adjustment skills, setting parameters and maintenance, etc. Concentration and care must be maintained during the operation to ensure the correct use of the marking machine.
