Do you know the classification principle of laser marking machines?

Time : 2023-10-20 Hits : 33

Lasers are classified according to laser source and can be divided into solid laser and gas laser, for example, fiber laser marking machine belongs to solid laser, while CO2 laser marking machine belongs to gas laser. Here we use the table to explain the marking materials applicable to solid state laser and the marking materials applicable to gas laser respectively.

Some materials suitable for solid-state lasers:

Material NameAbbreviationApplication Field
Common Metals&AlloysAll metals including Iron, Copper, Aluninium 
Rare Metals&AlloysGold, Silver, and Titanium
Metallic OxideVarious metal oxides are available
Special Surface TreatmentAnodized, Plated surface
CrystalCrystal Engraving
ABS materialABSElectrical shell, Daily necessities
Printing LinkTranslucent keys, Printed products
Epoxy ResinEPEncapsulation of electronic components, insulating layer
PolyoxyethylenePVCTubing, Wire insulation, Seals
Polycarbonates PCPCTransparent products with high impact resistance requirements

Fiber <a class='inkey' href='https://www.jklasermachine.com/Fiber-laser-marking-machine' target='_blank'>laser marking machine</a>

Some materials suitable for gas laser:

Material NameAbbreviationApplication Field
Polyvinyl ChloridePVCTubing, Wire insulation, Seals
ABS materialABSElectrical shell, Daily necessities
AcrylicPMMATransparent material, Two-color board, Advertising words
PolycarbonatePCTransparent products with high impact resistance requirements
Unsaturated PolyesterAKCoatings, Decorations, Plates, Buttons
PolyurethanePUSoles, Artificial leather, Paint
Epoxy ResinEPEncapsulation of electronic components, insulating layer
GlassGlass surface

CO2 laser marking machine

In addition to the above, we also should note that some materials are suitable for both solid and gas laser processing, while some materials have complex properties and are not easy to classify. Customers can choose different lasers according to the material properties, or consult us in detail. In order to ensure the effect of laser marking, customers can also mail us product samples, and we will arrange marking tests for customers and choose the most suitable model for you.
