Reasons to choose a laser marking machine

Time:2022-06-14 Views:

Laser marking technology has been used more and more in the printing field in recent years. Laser marking can be applied to various materials including plastic and rubber, metal, silicon wafer and so on. Compared with traditional mechanical engraving, chemical etching, screen printing, ink printing, etc., laser marking has low cost, high flexibility, and can be controlled by computer systems. its outstanding features. At present, in the marking printing industry, laser marking has occupied more than 90% of the market.


There are several reasons for choosing a laser marking machine:

1. Permanent:


Such as marks will not fade due to environmental relationships (touch, acid and reducing gases, high temperature, low temperature, etc.).


2. Anti-counterfeiting:


The marks engraved by laser marking technology are not easy to imitate and change, and have strong anti-counterfeiting properties to a certain extent.


3. Non-contact:


Laser marking is processed by a non-mechanical "light knife", which can print marks on any regular or irregular surface, and the workpiece will not generate internal stress after marking, ensuring the original accuracy of the workpiece. No corrosion to the working surface, no "tool" wear, no poison, no pollution.


4. Wide applicability:


Using laser as a processing method, it can process a variety of metal and non-metal materials (aluminum, copper, iron, wood products, etc.).


5. High engraving precision:


The objects engraved by the laser marking machine have fine patterns, and the minimum line width can reach 0.04mm. The markings are clear, durable and beautiful. Laser marking can meet the needs of printing large amounts of data on extremely small plastic parts. For example, two-dimensional barcodes that require more precision and higher definition can be printed, and compared with embossing or jet marking, they have stronger market competitiveness.


6. Low operating cost:


The marking speed is fast and the marking is formed once, and the energy consumption is low, so the running cost is low. Although the equipment investment of laser marking machine is larger than that of traditional marking equipment, in terms of operating cost, using laser marking machine is much lower.
