Laser marking &Laser engraving.-Amber

Laser marking &Laser engraving

The terms “Laser Marking” and “Laser Engraving” are frequently use interchangeably but there is a difference. Generally speaking, Laser Marking refers to placing legible information onto the surface of a part with little or no penetration whereas Laser Engraving refers to placing information into a part with obvious penetration below the surface.  The same laser can accomplish either technique simply by changing settings within the laser marking software.

Laser engraving, is the practice of using lasers to engrave an object. Laser marking, on the other hand, is a broader category of methods to leave marks on an object.including color change due to chemical/molecular alteration, charring, foaming, melting, ablation.The technique does not involve the use of inks, nor does it involve tool bits which contact the engraving surface and wear out, giving it an advantage over alternative engraving or marking technologies where inks or bit heads have to  replace regularly.

The impact of laser marking has been more pronounc for specially design “laserable” materials and also for some paints. These include laser-sensitive polymers and novel metal alloys.

The term laser marking is also used as a generic term covering a broad spectrum of surfacing techniques including printing, hot-branding and laser bonding. The machines for laser engraving and laser marking are the same, so that the two terms are sometimes confus by those without knowledge or experience in the practice.

3D fiber laser metal engraving machine-Wendy

3D fiber laser marking machine have become very popular in last few years. Also its price is lower and lower, more and more people have enough power to buy it. Recent years, with the development of laser technology, 3D laser engraving machine will become more and more common in the market.

3D laser engraving machine kind

Now there is 2 main kinds 3D laser engraving machine in the market. One is 3D large format laser marking machine, another one is 3D curved laser marking machine.

Large format laser marking

3D large format main used on CO2 laser marking machine, few people use it on fiber laser marking machine. Co2 large format laser marking also have very wide application. such as clothing, leather, wood product, LGP board, paper etc. 

On jean processing fields, most company do it with water processing. This way have heavy pollution for environment, special on water. Now more and more people replace it with co2 laser format laser marking machine. Laser machine have no any pollution and no any consumable except electric power. At the same time, its working speed is very fast.

Curved laser marking machine

Curved laser marking main use fiber laser source. Previous we can use 2D laser engraving machine mark cylinder with the rotary device. But when we need mark ball surface, 2D laser with rotary device can’t finish it. 3D laser engraving machine is good solution for all curved surface, such as ball, cylinder, ladder etc.

Emboss 3D laser marking machine

Now many people do metal mold with laser engraver. Although we can use 2D laser machine finish deep engraving, the problem is all depth is same, still it is same level marking. When we do deep engraving with layering and thirddimension, 3d laser will be good solution.

In last several years, 3D laser engraving machine is very expensive, so its market is not very well. Now its price is declining as more and more company can do it. If you want to learn more about it, you can contact us.

Benefits of using laser marking machine for jewelry-lisa wang

6 Benefits Of Using Laser Marking Machine For Jewelry

laser marking machine

Over the past decade, laser marking machines have revolutionized the jewelry industry. We see a constant increase in jewelry businesses that utilizing laser technology to offer bespoke and customized items for their customers. This article explores the benefits of laser technology and shows you some of the main advantages compared to traditional engraving methods.

Multipurpose

what is MOPA laser

Foremost, a single laser system can engrave multiple surfaces. That means that you only need to buy one laser marking machine to be able to engrave silver, gold, copper, titanium, brass and tons more applications. In fact, a fiber laser machine can also engrave non-metal surfaces, such as acrylic, plastic and wood.

The other benefit for jewelers is the application for individualizing and personalizeing different shaped items. So, whether you’re looking to engrave rings, bracelets, necklaces or watches; it can all be done with the same machine! The only restriction is the size of your machine’s marking area. Although that is typically not a concern, as jewelry items tend to be small in size.

Versatile

You can create virtually any design, no matter how complex, and have it successfully engraved onto your jewelry item. Even the smallest of designs remains legible when marked with a laser beam.

Thanks to its versatility, Jewelry designers use the laser machine for countless applications. Whether it’s engraving a photo onto a pendant; adding a unique pattern to a ring; branding jewelry with a logo for corporate events; or personalizing a necklace with a heart-warming message – the possibilities are endless.

Non-contact

The fiber laser machine uses a non-contact marking method. Essentially, a laser beam is directed onto the item’s surface and produces a mark by removing the material. As a result, there is no contact between the laser equipment and the jewelry item.

Since there is no contact during the engraving process. The jewelry is never compromised with engraved by fiber laser machine. Additionally, the machine doesn’t have moving parts, which can wear down over time and require replacement.

Laser marking machine, Because there are thousands of equipment, devices, and tools in hospitals and medical facilities which make it possible for staff and doctors to go about their jobs every day. Identifying each one of them and putting them to their purposed use is very important and that is why they have to be marked.

Marking safeguards the safety of patients, keeps members of staff accountable, makes it easy for the maintenance team to service medical equipment, helps the procurement department to procure the right equipment and at the right time, and keeps the details of the manufacturer.On the whole, Marking Machine saves everyone’s time and keeps medical facilities and hospitals running smoothly.

Laser Marking

Evenhere are various ways of marking equipment, but it is superior. Laser marking is the use of laser beams to label equipment, tools, devices, parts and materials. Unlike stickers and such, it is durable. It never wears out. It weathers abrasive chemicals, moisture, heat and other harsh conditions known to ruin the other kinds of labelling

Why Laser Marking is Important

In 2013, Food and Drugs Association (FDA) made laser marking of medical equipment mandatory. Because all the medical equipment needs to be identified and traced. The FDA requires that the marks are clear and the text can be readable by the machine and human beings

Unique Device Identification

The FDA requires that all medical equipment bear a Unique Device Identification (UDI). This assigned “unique identifier” carries with it the name of the manufacturer. The make or model of the product, expiry date – if applicable and unique attributes if any.

The government issues guidelines on marking equipment with unique identifiers, and these marks nearly suits the usage in some small tools in the medical field, so it is compulsory.

How to Laser Mark

Laser  marking can mark not only on plastic or metals selected and specified  but also on materials like foil and laminate . Contrary to other forms of labelling, it does not involve any contact. Because the material or surface determines the type of laser mark .

Smart Fiber Laser Marking Machine

What is Laser Marking of the Engine?

It has become an essential part of the manufacturing and automotive industry as it assists businesses to keep check of their products, minimize simulating, develop quality and more. There are good numbers of benefits for marking in industries for helping understand the perspective behind this technology. The laser technology is one of the most amazing applications to involve with. The major problem found was information regarding engine build for investigation in case any failures occurred. The idea was to install a 2D code onto the engine casing, conversely, this would need multiple marking techniques to mount at the plant.

The Marking Process is Clean and Eco-Friendly:

Chemical Engraving or Inkjet like processes use inks and chemicals in marking that have a negative effect on the surroundings apart from being costly consumables for the industries. The Laser Marking, on the other hand, is way far from using any kind of consumables that makes it reasonable, clean and energy competent. It also excludes downtime and costs related to fixing, cleaning or fueling printers. The products might also get damaged over time due to peel off, tearing or any other reason. But laser marking helps the permanent marking to remain really long, supporting the brand and quality in the industry.

Laser marking promises clean processing at least adulteration since the process cannot contacted. Where printing techniques will lead to burning down of the material by marking, the damage-free process includes no or least material dissemination.

The Marking Procedure:

  • Laser marking is the result of when beam comes into contact with the material surface, slightly modifying its features or presentation.
  • Obtained by moving a low-mechanical beam gradually across the material using a technique called staining, that produces high-contrast marks without troubling the material.
  • Laser raises the material temperature that causes oxidation below the surface and turning the material black.
  • The laser marking applies low temperatures to metal to toughen the surface.
  • All of this is done while leaving the surface undamaged.

Laser marking is unique from laser etching and laser engraving in a number of ways:

  • It is a rare process and not all places provide these services.
  • Also known as laser dark marking or laser coloration, and also charring for plastic materials and strengthening for metals.
  • There are 4 collective types of laser marking: carbon migration, annealing, coloration, and
  • It is very common in the medical device industry for titanium parts and stainless steel but can executed on other materials too.
  • A laser marker is perfect for barcodes, QR codes, UID codes, logos and other recognition needs.

Which industries use Laser Marking?

When investing the laser, it was one of the best creations and gained early recognition for its usefulness in different industries. But the laser marking has given modern reach to the flourishing companies by promoting their brand name and assurance for quality.

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Electronics
  • Industrial & Tooling
  • Medical
  • Military & Defense
  • Oil & Gas and more…

For the automotive industry and motorized industries, companies extensively make use of laser marking on the engines. It is the recognition for their appreciation of every automotive manufacturing entity. Every industry uses the laser for different purposes. For instance, the manufacturing companies understand the importance of product branding and therefore. They mostly make use of laser marking on their products and gain recognition in the industry. Not only for the laser marking but also for laser engraving and etching, business widely apply these techniques.

The Top 4 Benefits of UV Laser Marking-lisa

The Top 4 Benefits of UV Laser Marking

fiber laser marking machine tutorial (2)

Manufacturers are increasingly requiring identification marks on their products to help with traceability. While the traditional marking method is typically ink printing. It’s out of date already, especially in the medical industry as ink that often easily removed, altered, or contaminated. That’s why many manufacturers have begun to use ultraviolet lasers to mark their products.

Laser marking makes it easy to identify parts and authenticity without a physical tool etching the surface of the part or transmitting any substances onto the surface. Instead, the laser light focused onto a material, producing damage-free, easy-to-read marks. Apple Rubber uses laser marking to add model numbers, bar codes, logos and more onto customer’s o-rings and seals.

Here are the top four benefits of utilizing UV laser marking in your manufacturing facility:

1. Flexible processing

Laser marking also used on many products in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, defense DOD, medical and electronic components. Apple Rubber uses laser marking on virtually any o-ring or seal where product identification required.

In many industries, product authenticity and traceability is required by law. Automotive companies, for example, use part traceability to quickly determine when and where the part produced in the case of component failure, which helps for product recalls. Because of the importance of product identification, using a flexible and reliable marking technique is critical.

2. Overall speed

In traditional ink marking, printing equipment is often mechanically complex, requiring longer downtimes for maintenance and frequent cleanings. With UV laser marking, no prolonged downtime associated with cleaning or fixing a printer, and the overall engraving process is extremely quick and simple.

UV lasers are better absorbed than other wavelengths and marking techniques by virtually all materials, requiring less power to produce a clear mark. This makes the process even simpler since UV laser marking ensures a high-quality, high-contrast mark in one application.

3. Maximizes authenticity

UV lasers create easy-to-read marks that are far superior to printed marks or labels. Apple Rubber uses a high-quality laser that can focus in on smaller spot sizes and produce a high peak power, leading to crisp, clear marks on o-rings and seals. This ensures that parts can clearly identified and their markings cannot  altered or tampered with.

In the pharmaceutical industry, counterfeiting has become a huge issue with many social and economic implications. Since pharmaceutical manufacturers are limite in what types of markings they can use, they must choose an option that is tamper-proof, easy to read, compatible with their specific environment and cannot alter the product. Because of these requirements, laser marking is the best choice in this industry and many others that require complete authenticity in their products.

4. Minimizes contamination

While the ink in traditional marking methods is non-toxic, the printing equipment often utilizes lubricants and solvents that can become airborne and contaminate printed products. Medical manufacturing often requires completely sterile products that produced in a classified cleanroom. In this case, traditional marking would not be acceptable.

During the laser marking process, the marking device does not come into direct contact with the product, allowing for clean operation with minimal contamination. This creates a product identification option for industries that require sterile products. And ensures that outside materials will not cause future contamination of a product.
