Correct the view of putting the cart before the horse in laser marking machine and laser engraving machine
Nowadays, most people like to mix things up in real life, such as laser marking machine and laser engraving machine. They can be roughly classified into one category by looking at the literal meaning, but in fact, these two types of laser equipment are essentially different, next, we will talk about the mystery in detail with the topic of 'What is the difference between laser marking machine and laser engraving machine;
1, the depth of processing printing is different, laser engraving machine general engraving depth is deeper, the power is also relatively large.
Laser power ranges from 25W to 150 W. The depth of the engraving material is also from 0.
Ranging from 1mm to 80mm, the carving depth depends on the specific material.
Generally, wood products, sponges, acrylic and other materials are deeply carved.
The general printing depth of laser marking machine is less than 5mm, and the laser rate is between 10W and 100 W.
2, the processing speed is different, the engraving speed of the laser engraving machine is generally 200 mm/s faster than the cutting speed, and the engraving speed is 500 mm/s;
The speed of laser marking machine is generally three times that of laser engraving machine.
In terms of speed, laser marking machines are faster than laser engraving machines. Like mineral water manufacturers, the assembly line that walks in one minute is about 100.
3. The precision and speed of the marking machine are much higher than that of the engraving machine. The laser can act on the surface of the material with a fine beam, and the fine line width can reach 0. 02mm.
It has created a wide application space for precision machining and increasing anti-counterfeiting function.
4. The difference of marking format: the laser marking machine can generally mark 200*200, and the engraving machine can carve large format.
The laser marking machine uses vibrating mirror scanning, so the working width is relatively small.
To put it bluntly, the laser engraving machine is to replace the main axis of an engraving machine with a laser focusing lens and use laser instead of a tool for processing. Therefore, as long as the xyz axis is large enough, you can process as much as you want to process, however, the accuracy is different from that of laser: the optical path system of laser engraving machine is composed of three reflective lenses and a focusing lens, and the laser is generally a carbon dioxide glass tube.
The service life of glass tube laser is generally 2000-Within 10000 hours.
CO2 glass tube lasers are all disposable.
The laser of the laser marking machine is generally a metal tube laser (Non-metallic marking machine)And YAG solid-state lasers (Metal laser marking machine), Life expectancy is generally more than five years.
The metal tube of laser marking machine can be inflated again.
6. Differentiation of engraving and marking materials, diversification of engraving materials for laser engraving machines: glass, crystal, acrylic, wood board, marble, cloth, leather, felt, paper, PVC, plastic, non-metallic materials such as mosaics can be carved or cut.
The application of fiber laser marking machine is mainly for stainless steel metal products.
