How to select the power of laser marking machine?

The laser marking machine is small in size. It saves time and labor and is easy to operate. High cost performance. Laser marking machine has gradually replaced other processing marking equipment on the market. It also meets the production and development needs of many manufacturers. Many people hesitate to buy laser marking machines. The higher the power used by the laser marking machine, the better the effect. But is it really the case?

Today, the editor of HANTENCNC will show you how to choose the power of the laser marking machine? Here are some examples of the application of three laser marking machines commonly used in the market and how to choose their power.

The laser marking machines commonly used in the market today are:

  • UV laser marking machine

    Generally, the power of ultraviolet laser marking machine is 3 watts. 5 watts. 10 watts. 15W, etc. The ultraviolet laser marking machine is mainly used for plastic cosmetics. Medicine. Food. PCB。 QR code. Metal surface coating. Plastic button. ornament. Charger plug, etc. The higher the power, the higher the price. 3W-5W is now widely used in industry. In particular, their prices are moderate. It can meet most machining marking requirements. Ultraviolet laser marking machines of 10 to 15 watts are too expensive. It is mainly used for high-precision cutting and drilling.

  • Fiber laser marking machine

    The power of fiber laser marking machine is generally 20W.30W.50W.60W.80W.100W. Laser marking machine can mark all metals and some non-metals, such as ABS, epoxy resin, etc. If you need to mark more materials, you can contact our WhatsApp or email.

    Usually, a 20W laser marking machine can produce perfect results. However, for some parts that require deep marking or people who want high marking efficiency, it is recommended to use a high-power laser marking machine for marking. You can tell our sales manager your needs and marking effect, and we will recommend suitable machines to you according to your needs.

    In addition, our fiber laser marking machine has many styles to choose from: mini-split type, portable integrated type, desktop type, hand-held type, small koala type, flying type and so on.

  • CO2 laser marking machine

    The power of CO2 laser marking machine is generally 10 watts. 30 watts. 50 watts. 60 watts. 100 watts. 150 watts. 275 watts, etc.
    Carbon dioxide laser marking machine is mainly used for marking and cutting of non-metallic materials. For example, leather. Wood. Plastic. silica gel. Composite sheet. Glass, etc. Generally, the power selection of CO2 laser marking machine is determined according to the effect demand and product material of the marking product. In this case, you can send us a private message. Hanteng can arrange free proofing for you and recommend the one you really need.
    Optical fiber marking machine has three major components: laser, control card and marking head.

  • CCD visual positioning laser marking machine

    CCD visual positioning laser marking machine uses the principle of visual positioning. It is mainly aimed at the difficulty of material supply caused by the difficulty of fixture design and manufacturing in batch irregular marking. Poor positioning. Slow speed. It can be realized only within the processing range of laser marking scanning galvanometer. This enables accurate marking. Even if the position is different each time. There is no problem with the machining position. It is applicable to heavy workload. Product positioning is difficult. Workpiece diversity and complexity such as capacitance. IC card. Small screws. Jewelry, etc.

  • 3D laser marking machine

    The traditional two-dimensional laser marking machine adopts the back focusing mode. It is only applicable to plane marking within the specified range. 3D laser marking machine adopts advanced digital three-axis dynamic focusing technology. With 3D surface 3D laser marking function. It breaks the limitation of traditional optical fiber laser marking machine. The requirements for surface flatness of the machined object are greatly reduced. The processing effect of 3D laser marking machine is more colorful. It can realize laser marking more accurately on curved workpieces. In addition, defocusing does not occur during processing. You can even freely work with complex surfaces.

Many customers may purchase laser marking machine equipment for the first time, which is a novice. Today, HANTENCNC will share how to disguise himself as an “old hand”.

In fact, this is very simple. There are three core components of the optical fiber marking machine: laser, control card and marking head.

What is the brand of laser? 

At present, the best brand in China is IPG from Germany, and the brands made in China are Han’s,Raycus, Max,JPT etc.

Control card: 

EZCAD is the most widely used domestic equipment on the market. Please pay attention to whether it is genuine and whether there is encryption. Generally, if there is encryption, you have not paid the full amount. After you buy it, you have to pay additional decryption fees. Other control cards are Han’s EMCC, Taiwan’s MAKINGMATE, and Germany’s SAMLIGHT. Pay attention to whether the software is permanently decrypted!

Marking head:

 the professional name is laser scanning galvanometer. SINO is the most used brand in the market. It is a brand with a high cost performance ratio. The best brand is SCANLAB in Germany. There are too many other domestic brands to say. Just ask about the brand. You can check it online later.
 
In fact, the most important thing to buy a second-hand laser is the laser. Pay attention to the brand, factory date and model. Now the new marking machine made in China is also about 10000 yuan, so there is no need to buy second-hand ones. There is no guarantee for after-sales and parts!
 
Most customers pay attention to the brand name of laser marking machine. The price of laser marking machine is high. But the effect is the same. The purchase may be relatively secure. But the cost performance ratio is not high.
 
The equipment of the unknown manufacturer of laser marking machine is cost-effective. There are certain purchase risks. It is recommended to go to the manufacturer to check the laser marking machine. The specific choice is still up to you. As a manufacturer of laser marking machine, we can’t recommend it accurately for you. We think it is more reasonable to buy a cost-effective laser marking machine. Now the laser marking technology has been very mature, which is relatively durable.

Choose the right machine according to your needs

For different materials and marking needs, we have different laser marking machines to choose from. Such as CO2 laser marking, fiber laser marking and UV laser marking, flying laser marking machine, etc.

It is recommended to conduct proofing test on the machine. To check the effect. And choose a more convenient after-sales company. The laser marking equipment produced by HANTENCNC is very good. Visual positioning system is very intelligent and convenient.

How to choose a laser marking machine

Now the laser marking machine has been widely used in all walks of life. It has almost become an indispensable process on the product production line.

  • Beam quality

    Including output quality and mode stability. Some marking machines have divergent output beams. The marking effect is poor. Or it is not stable when marking for a long time. The product production efficiency is reduced.

  • Practicability

    When selecting a laser marking machine. Be sure to have a targeted understanding of its functions. Whether it is applicable to its own product processing and stability. Because the output power is different. Therefore, the effect is different for different products. Proofing must be carried out before purchasing laser equipment.

  • Maintenance

    Have good fault diagnosis measures. Generally, when there is a fault. Users can perform troubleshooting by themselves.

  • Operational aspects

    The simple and clear operation interface is easy to use. And it is not easy to damage the laser caused by operation errors.

  • Continuous working capacity

    For all industries. The working environment is different. Pressure resistance. The ability of continuous operation without any influence in terms of corrosion resistance.
