What difference between fiber laser and CO2 laser?
Now, there are many types of laser machine in market. Today, let us talk the difference of laser marking machine between fiber and CO2.
What difference betwwen fiber laser and CO2 laser?
Fiber laser marking machine
Fiber laser marking machine can work on most metals and some plastic, like gold, silver, brass, copper, aluminum and stainless steel. For plastic, like PVC and ABS. The main part of fiber laser marking machine is laser source. We have IPG, JPT, Raycus and Max brand of laser source. JPT is belong to MOPA serise, that can color marking on stainless steel. Also, there are different laser power of machine. 20 Watt is used to mark on the surface of metal; 30 Watt can engrave on the surface of metal more deeply; 50 Watt and 60 Watt can cut soft metal, like gold and silver; 100 Watt laser power is big, so it’s expensive. The picture of fiber laser marking machine as following:
CO2 laser marking machine
If you need to mark on wood, bamboo, leather, glass, paper rubber and plastic like PVC, PMMA, ABS and so on. CO2 laser marking machine is more suitable. The common laser source brand of CO2 laser marking machine is DAVI, JINGRUI, SYNRAD and Coherent. Usually, the size of CO2 laser marking machine is bigger than fiber laser marking machine. When the machine working, CO2 gas is used for work medium. The CO2 laser uses CO2 as the medium, fills the electrode with CO2 and other auxiliary gases and applies high voltage, then laser head can mark on material.
