What Is The Difference Between Laser Marking And Laser Engraving?

Nowadays, most people in real life like to confuse things, such as laser marking machine and laser engraving machine. They can be roughly classified into one category, but in fact, these two types of laser equipment are essentially Where the difference lies, let’s take the topic "What is the difference between laser marking machine and laser engraving machine" to tell you the mystery in detail;


First, the depth of processing and printing is different, the laser engraving machine is generally deep, and the power is relatively large. The laser power varies from 25W to 150W. The depth of the engraving material also varies from 0.1 mm to 80 mm, depending on the specific material. General wood products, sponge, acrylic and other materials carving depth is deep. The general printing depth of the laser marking machine is less than 5mm, and the laser rate is between 10W and 100W.


Two, the processing speed is different, laser engraving machine engraving speed is generally cutting speed of 200mm/s, engraving speed of 500mm/s; The speed of laser marking machine is generally three times the speed of laser engraving machine. In the speed of the laser marking machine is faster than the laser engraving machine, like mineral water manufacturers, 1 minute to walk the assembly line is about 100 meters.


Three, the accuracy and speed of the marking machine is much higher than the engraving machine, the laser can act on the surface of the material with a fine beam, the fine line width can reach 0.02mm. It has created a broad application space for precision machining and increasing anti-counterfeiting function.

The difference between marking format: laser marking machine can generally mark the format is 200*200mm, engraving machine can engraving large surface. Laser marking machine is used to scan the vibrator, so the working format is less. Laser one, engraving machine is to say that the main axis of an engraving machine is replaced by the laser focusing lens, and the laser is used instead of the cutter for processing, so as long as the XYZ axis is big enough, how much you want to process how much you can process.


Two, the laser is different: laser engraving machine light path system part is composed of three mirrors and a focusing mirror, the laser is generally carbon dioxide glass tube. The lifetime of glass tube laser is generally within 2000-10000 hours. Carbon dioxide glass tube lasers are disposable. The laser of the laser marking machine is generally a metal tube laser (non-metal marking machine) and YAG solid laser (metal laser marking machine), the life of more than five years. The metal tube of the laser marking machine can be inflated again.


Three, the difference of engraving and marking materials, laser engraving machine engraving material diversity: glass, crystal, acrylic, wood, marble, cloth, leather, felt, paper, PVC, plastic, Mosaic and other non-metallic materials can be engraving or cutting. And fiber laser marking machine application industry is mainly for stainless steel metal products.
