The difference between laser marking machine and laser engraving machineThorpe
Most people nowadays like to mix things up in real life like laser marking machine and laser engraving machine. Literally, it can be roughly classified into one category, but in fact, what is the difference between these two kinds of laser equipment? Let’s talk about the mystery in detail with the title of “What is the difference between laser marking machine and laser engraving machine?
Depending on the depth of processing and printing, laser engraving machines generally have deeper engraving depths and higher power. Laser power varies from 25W to 150W. The depth of the engraved material also varies from 0.1mm to 80mm, depending on the specific material. Generally, the carving depth of wood products, sponges, acrylics and other materials is relatively deep. Generally, the printing depth of laser marking machine is less than 5mm, and the laser power is between 10W and 100W.
Depending on the processing speed, the engraving speed of the laser engraving machine is generally 200mm/s faster than the cutting speed, and the engraving speed is 500mm/s; the speed of the laser marking machine is generally three times that of the laser engraving machine. In terms of speed, laser marking machines are faster than laser engraving machines. Like mineral water manufacturers, the assembly line is about 100 meters per minute.
The precision and speed of the marking machine is much higher than that of the engraving machine. The laser can act on the surface of the material with a thin beam, and the width of the thin line can reach 0.02mm. It creates a broad application space for precision machining and increasing anti-counterfeiting functions.
The difference of marking format: laser marking machine can generally mark 200*200mm format, and engraving machine can engrave large format. The laser marking machine uses galvanometer scanning, so the working format is relatively small. To put it bluntly, the laser engraving machine uses a laser focusing lens to replace the main shaft of the engraving machine, and uses a laser instead of a tool for processing, so as long as the xyz axis is large enough, it can process as many large formats as possible, but the accuracy and
The difference between lasers: The optical path system of the laser engraving machine consists of three reflecting mirrors and a focusing mirror. Lasers are generally carbon dioxide glass tubes. The life of glass tube lasers is generally within 2000-10000 hours. Carbon dioxide glass tube lasers are all disposable. The lasers of laser marking machines are generally metal tube lasers (non-metal marking machines) and YAG solid-state lasers (metal laser marking machines), and the service life is generally more than five years. The metal tube of the laser marking machine can be inflated again for use.
The distinction between engraving and marking materials, the materials engraved by the laser engraving machine are diverse: glass, crystal, acrylic, wood, marble, cloth, leather, felt, paper, PVC, plastic, mosaic and other non-metallic materials can be engraved or cut. The application industry of fiber laser marking machine is mainly stainless steel metal products.
Advantages of laser engraving machine
High processing efficiency, 10 to 15 times that of manual engraving; high precision, low cost, and good printing effect;
The mechanical structure is optimally designed, and the overall size of the machine is the smallest, which not only saves your precious space, but also the structure is not deformed and the cutting precision is high.
Taiwan square linear guide, long life.
Using patented technology, the plastic plate carving effect is better, and it is not easy to burn.
Genuine laser engraving software, powerful; engraving and cutting can be carried out at the same time;
Laser engraving machine application industry
Handicraft: Carve exquisite patterns and texts on wood, bamboo, ivory, bone, leather, marble, shells and other materials.
Advertising industry: mainly used for two-color plate engraving, acrylic engraving and cutting, sign engraving, crystal, trophy engraving, authorization card engraving, etc.
Leather garment processing industry: Intricate text and graphic engraving, cutting, engraving and hollowing out on synthetic leather, artificial leather, fabric and fur. Cut, engrave, go beyond fashion and express individuality in apparel, home improvement, gloves, handbags, shoes and hats, toys, car decoration and more.
Model industry: making sand table building models and aircraft models.
Packaging industry: engraving and printing rubber sheets, plastic sheets, double-layer sheets, die-cutting blades, etc.
Other industries: engraving and marking of decorative materials such as marble, granite, glass, crystal, paper cutting, greeting cards and other paper art cutting.
