Introduction of CNC Laser Marking Machine

• Fiber Laser Marking Machine

The fiber laser marking machine adopts a fiber laser generator, also known as Solid-State Laser (SSL) equipment, working wavelength standard is 1064nm. With the features of easy operation, fast marking speed, high marking accuracy, 100,000 hours service time and free maintenance, fiber laser marking machine is an ideal marking solution for variety of products processing.

• CO2 Laser Marking Machine

The CO2 laser marking machines adopt CO2 gas in a sealed-off metal tube as the laser generator. It is gas laser marker machine that are based on carbon dioxide gas mixture, due to their wavelength (9.3 µm/10.6 µm), this type of CO2 marking machines are commonly used for marking and engraving most non-metallic materials, such as wood, glass, ceramic, crystal, jade, acrylic, PVC, paper packaging, rubber, plastic products, garments, cloth, fabric, leather, film, ect. 

• MOPA Laser Marking Machines

The MOPA laser marker machine is a kind of fiber laser, the term MOPA is an abbreviation for Master Oscillator Power Amplifier. The main features of MOPA fiber laser are that the laser marking frequency and pulse width can be independently controlled. 


As MOPA fiber laser can be modified the frequency and pulse width, through these two laser marking parameter adjustment collocation, it can achieve constant peak power output.


MOPA laser with the advantages of first pulse is available, the pulse width modulation is wider, and the response speed is faster, which enables them to work with a large number of materials than the fiber laser marking machines.


Compared with fiber laser that can only mark metal materials, MOPA laser also can also mark for some non-metal materials. For some special materials marking, MOPA laser marking will show you some unexpected results such as color marking on stainless steel, black color marking on anodized aluminum, high contrast marking on plastics, 0.1mm smaller text marking , depth marking by high power MOPA generator, stripping anode, stripping coating, semiconductor and electronics industry, plastic and other sensitive material marking and PVC plastic pipe industry.

• UV Laser Marking Machines

The UV laser marking machine is a type of Ultraviolet (UV) laser marker, working with a 355nm wavelength UV laser generator. The wavelength of a UV laser is one-third of standard wavelength lasers, and thus UV lasers are also referred to as third-harmonic generation (THG) lasers.


UV laser marker is a "cold laser marking" method, the UV laser beam diameter is only 20 μm after focusing, there is no significant thermal influence next to the slit and no damage to the materials caused by the heat generated.


Compared with the fiber laser marking machine and CO2 laser marking machine, the main advantage of the UV laser marking system is the multifunctionality and capacity of engraving or cutting over different materials, UV laser marking machines not only can mark on all the metal materials but also can mark all the nonmetal material. 


Moreover, due to the high-quality laser beam, the UV laser marker is designed as the best marking solution for frosted effect glass, plastic color marking and some other high-contrast and ultra-fine effect marking.
