Are laser marking machines and laser engraving machines the same kind of machine? no. Although the working principles of the two are the same, they are quite different. They are two completely different machines

With the development of laser technology, the types and performance of laser equipment are continuously improved and improved. Common laser marking equipment includes laser engraving machine and laser marking machine. Today, the sales manager of Datu Laser will introduce to you:

1. Different definitions

The laser marking machine uses a laser beam to make permanent marks on the surface of various materials. The effect of marking is to expose the deep material through the evaporation of the surface material, thereby engraving exquisite patterns, trademarks and text.

A laser engraving machine is a laser device that uses the thermal energy of a laser to engrave and cut materials. It is also called laser cutting machine, laser etching machine, etc.

2. Different application industries

The laser marking machine can engrave a variety of non-metallic materials with a wide range of applications, and a variety of materials can be marked with permanent high-quality marks. Used in clothing accessories, pharmaceutical packaging, wine packaging, architectural ceramics, beverage packaging, fabric cutting, rubber products, shell nameplates, craft gifts, electronic components, leather and other industries.

The laser marking machine can also engrave metal materials, which is more suitable for some products that require fine and high precision. Such as electronic components, integrated circuits (IC), electrical appliances, mobile communications, hardware products, tool accessories, precision equipment, glasses and watches, jewelry, auto parts, plastic buttons, building materials, PVC pipes, medical equipment and other industries.

Laser engraving machine can be divided into non-metal laser engraving machine and metal laser engraving machine, so the scope of application is very wide.

3. Different processing depth

The laser marking machine only performs marking on the surface of the material, the depth is very shallow, generally the depth is less than 0.5mm, while the depth of the laser engraving machine can be marked as deep, ranging from 0.1mm to 100mm, and it can penetrate deep into the object. Even if it is punched through, the specific depth still depends on the material.

4. Different processing speeds

The engraving speed of the laser engraving machine is generally the fastest cutting speed of 200mm/s, and the engraving speed is 500mm/s; the speed of the laser marking machine is generally three times the speed of the laser engraving machine.

5. Different working format

The working area of the laser marking machine is not particularly large, at most the size of an ordinary desk

The processing format of low-power laser engraving machine is not large, but the high-power laser engraving machine is mainly used to cut metal, and the processing format is very large, at least the size of a bed.

6. Different lasers

Laser marking machine lasers, such as metal tube lasers and YAG solid-state lasers, generally have a life span of about 30,000 hours. Of course, fiber laser marking machine laser has the longest service life, which can reach 100,000 hours.

The optical path system of the laser engraving machine is composed of three reflective lenses and a focusing lens. The laser is generally a carbon dioxide glass tube. The life of the glass tube laser is generally within 2000-10000 hours.

Because of the above six different factors, the prices of laser marking machines and laser engraving machines are different. There are many types of laser marking machines, and different materials require different models. The price generally ranges from US$3,600.00 to US$70,500.00.

For non-metal laser engraving and cutting machines, the low-power price is much cheaper than laser marking machines. , But high-power laser engraving machines are also more expensive

In summary, laser engraving machines are generally used to engrave or cut non-metallic materials. Laser marking machines are generally not used for deep engraving. It only needs to engrave the logo content. You can choose according to your own needs and budget. If you want more help, please contact Datu Laser directly.
