Currently, laser marking machines (also known as laser inkjet printers and laser coding machines) on the market are mainly divided into three different types: UV laser marking machines, fiber laser marking machines, and carbon dioxide laser marking machines. Moreover, under the same type of laser marking machine, due to different designs and applications, there will also be different power settings. The appropriate power of the laser marking machine needs to be considered according to your marking needs.
The powers of UV laser marking machine (UV laser inkjet printers) are: 2W, 3W, 5W, etc. UV laser marking machines are mainly used in plastic cosmetics, QR codes, metal surface coatings, medicines, food, and PCB boards, plastic buttons, decorations, charger plugs, etc. The higher the power, the higher the price.
The power of fiber laser marking machines are: 20W, 30W, 50W, 100W, etc. Fiber laser marking machines are mainly used in metals, alloys and oxides, ABS, epoxy resins, electronic components, hardware, gold and silver jewelry, Glasses, watches, power switches, etc., general materials can produce excellent results using 20W.
The power of carbon dioxide laser marking machines are: 10W, 30W, 60W, etc. Carbon dioxide laser marking machines are mainly used in non-metallic material marking and cutting, handicraft processing, silica gel, mobile phone composite panels, glass leather, wood, plastics, etc. Usually carbon dioxide The power selection of the laser marking machine should be determined according to the performance requirements of the marked product and the product material.
The difference between laser marking machines with different powers lies in their effectiveness. It does not mean that high power can achieve good results, and it does not mean that low power cannot achieve results. It needs to be based on actual needs. Low power may have the use of low power, and high power may have high power. According to the demand, the power used can be judged according to the marking depth and material. If there is a demand for the effect, it is also necessary to judge how much power of the laser marking machine needs to be used based on the effect. The effect generally requires proofing to confirm, and in special cases, the effect needs to be seen To determine which brand of laser to use, the second is that the higher the power of the laser marking machine, the more expensive it will be. If low power can meet the demand, it is recommended not to consider high power.
