What is the difference between laser marking and laser engraving?

1. Different definitions:

(1) Laser engraving machine is a kind of scientific and technological equipment that uses laser to carve the materials that need engraving. Laser engraving machine can also be called laser cutting machine, laser engraving machine, etc. it shoots laser on almost all materials such as wood products, Yake grain, plastic plate, metal plate, stone and so on.

(2) Laser marking machine is to use laser beam to make the surface material evaporate to expose the deep material, resulting in the chemical and physical changes of the surface material to carve traces, or to burn part of the material through light energy to show the required etched graphics and characters.

2. The application materials are different

(1) Laser engraving machine is generally used to carve or cut non-metallic materials.

(2) Laser marking machine does not need deep carving, but only through marking, name identification, most of the metal and non-metal materials can be marked. Very little cutting is used.

3. The depth and speed are different

(1) Laser engraving machine can carve or cut in a large stroke size, which is far deeper than laser marking machine.

(2) The speed of laser marking machine is relatively fast, which can generally reach 7000 mm / s.

4. The prices are also different:

(1) The price of laser marking machine varies with different materials, and the corresponding models are also different, ranging from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands.

(2) Laser engraving and cutting machine, the price of small power is much cheaper than laser marking machine.

1. Laser marking machine uses laser beam to make permanent marks on different material surfaces. The effect of marking is to expose the deep material through the evaporation of the surface material, so as to carve exquisite patterns, trademarks and words.

2. Laser marking machine is mainly divided into CO2 laser marking machine, semiconductor laser marking machine, fiber laser marking machine and YAG laser marking machine. Laser marking machine is mainly used in some occasions requiring more precision.

3. Used in electronic components, integrated circuits (IC), electrical appliances, mobile communication, hardware products, tool accessories, precision instruments, glasses, clocks, jewelry, auto parts, plastic keys, building materials, PVC pipes.

4. Laser engraving machine, as the name suggests, is an advanced equipment that uses laser to carve the materials that need engraving. Laser engraving machine is different from mechanical engraving machine and other traditional manual engraving methods. Mechanical engraving machine uses mechanical means, such as diamond and other materials with high hardness to carve other things.

5. The laser engraving machine uses the heat energy of the laser to carve the material, and the laser in the laser engraving machine is its core. Generally speaking, laser engraving machine is more widely used, and the engraving accuracy is higher, and the engraving speed is faster.

6. Compared with the traditional manual carving, laser carving can also make the carving effect very delicate, no less than the level of manual carving. It is because the laser engraving machine has so many advantages, so now the application of laser engraving machine has gradually replaced the traditional engraving equipment and methods. Become the main carving equipment.
