Portable Laser Marking Machines: Advantages and Disadvantages

Brief Introduction

As the name implies, the portable laser marking machine is very portable. Not only is it easy to operate and carry, but the device’s volume is also very small. It can be carried in a small cart or the trunk of a car.

Although the portable laser marker machine is small, it is like other laser equipment. It has a fast marking speed and perfect marking effect. It is are very cost-effective.

Marking Principle:

A portable marking laser machine evaporates laser beams on the surface of different products. Therefore, various exquisite patterns, characters, trademarks, and so on can be “marked.”

Features of Laser Marking:

  1. Good wear resistance.
  2. Not easy to erase and change.
  3. With the characteristics of permanent marking.

Therefore, it is deeply loved by consumers. Portable laser marking equipment can be used for custom holiday gifts. So that it can meet the individual needs of private customization.

Complement the traditional gift with a custom-stamped picture frame. You can choose a sweet photo of the two of you together, with the dates and nicknames of when you met and fell in love. It’s romantic!

Advantages of Portable Laser Marking Machine

  1. The marking speed of the portable laser marking machine is fast. It can save time and increase work efficiency.
  2. It is easy to carry. As its name suggests, the machine is miniaturized, easy to carry, and overall miniaturized. When traveling on business, a portable lifting laser marker machine is recommended.
  3. The portable laser marking machine is a non-contact marker. There is no contact with the workpiece, so it will not cause physical damage to the workpiece. As long as you know how to use it, there is less waste of raw materials.
  4. The portable marking laser machine has no consumables, a one-time investment. Unlike pneumatic marking machines that require the replacement of the marking head. Buy a portable laser machine and use it permanently without changing the marking head.
  5. Laser marking works very well. The product patterns processed by the portable fiber laser marking machine are vivid and clear. And they are easy to be accepted by the market.
  6. Laser marking software technology can effectively suppress counterfeiting of product marks.
  7. It is beneficial to product tracking records. The laser coding machine can find the product’s production batch number, date of manufacture, train number, etc. It has very good traceability of goods.
  8. The performance is stable and reliable and can work continuously for 24 hours. The maintenance-free time of the laser generator is as long as 20,000 hours. The temperature range is wide (5°C-45°C). And it is widely used in the production and packaging industries of various industries.
  9. The laser marking function can print data information in a small area.Lasers can mark the product itself with an ultra-fine beam of light. The operation is accurate, and the printed content is displayed clearly.

Disadvantages of Portable Laser Marking Equipments

  1. Compared with the standard large-scale machine: the portable machine is affected by factors such as volume cost, laser power, and various accessories. Therefore, the marking effect, speed, applicable material, stability, etc. may be worse.
  2. If you want a laser marker machine, it should be based on your actual marking requirements. If you want to be portable, you can carry it with you. If you don’t want to use it for a long time, you can choose portable first. If the marking speed is fast and the effect is good, then choose standard laser marking equipment. If you don’t know how to choose a suitable laser marking machine or have other questions, you can contact the staff of HANTENCNC. And they will answer you in detail from a professional perspective.

How to Buy a Suitable Laser Marker Machine?

With the development of the laser industry getting better and better, more and more manufacturers are producing laser equipment. Whether you know the laser marker machine industry or not, if you want to buy laser equipment, you can first understand the purchase knowledge so as not to be deceived.

Step 1: Identify Your Needs

When purchasing a small fiber laser marking machine, at least you must first clarify your main needs. If you don’t understand, you can see which products you want to use the equipment for. If what you want is a small fiber laser, the price of a large fiber laser is absolutely unacceptable.

Step 2: Clarify the Role of Laser Marking Equipment

After making it clear that you choose a small fiber laser marking machine, you also need to determine its function.

Current laser marker machines, such as:

  • Flying fiber laser marking machine
  • Portable fiber laser marking machine
  • Laser marking machine with adjustable pulse width

All three of the above can be used for the blackening treatment of alumina.

According to the different light sources produced, there are many types of laser marking equipment, such as:

  • Fiber laser marking machine
  • CO2 laser marking machine
  • Ultraviolet laser marking machine

As mentioned in the previous article, interested friends can go to search and have a look.

Fiber laser engraving machine is mainly for engraving hard objects, such as hard metal, hard plastic, hard stone.

Carbon dioxide laser engraving machine is mainly used for engraving soft objects such as wood and leather.

High-end fragile products are used in UV laser marking machines, such as glass, ceramics,jade etc.

Step 3: Whether it is Multifunctional

In addition to marking, the product may also have engraving, cutting, and other needs during processing. Some small fiber laser marking machines can be customized according to customers’ needs. The laser marking machine has a dedicated fiber laser marking machine, and it can also be a multi-functional laser marking machine. The multifunctional laser equipment will cost more than dedicated laser equipment. So you must understand your needs when buying.

Step 4: Sample Effect

Whether it is suitable can be seen directly from the effect of the samples. Samples are the most authentic actual effect. You can see whether the effect of the equipment is good or not by looking at the fineness of the sample’s marking and the pattern’s exquisiteness.

Step 5: Machine Configuration

The quality of the laser equipment configuration will directly affect the final marking effect. There are mainly the following three points:

  • Laser
  • Galvanometer
  • Marking card

Manufacturers use the same galvanometer and marker card. And some use pirated marker cards as good products. So be sure to look at this configuration clearly when purchasing.

In China, if the main configuration of the machine is to use imported components, the overall price will be relatively expensive. Relatively, its marking effect and service life are higher than ordinary laser equipment. So it depends on your choice.

What is Portable Fiber Laser Marking Machine Price?

Based on the above purchasing skills, it can be seen that the configuration of the laser marking equipment should not be too bad. The price will be relatively high if you choose a small fiber machine with comprehensive functions. If you don’t use so many functions, you can choose a special fiber laser marking machine, and its price will be relatively low. If it is fully functional and requires an additional customized fiber laser marker machine, the price will be higher!
