Laser marking is a process in which a laser beam applies a reliable and high-quality pattern or inscription to various surfaces. This method is widely used in various industries such as industrial, medical, electronics, jewelry, automotive, etc.
Laser marking uses the impressive power and focus of the laser beam to affect the surface of various materials. The drawing or inscription is usually created by removing or altering the top layer of the material, resulting in obvious and durable results without any contact with the object. High precision and detail can be achieved through this method.
The application of laser marking is widespread. The least durable materials such as cardboard, paper and plastic can be easily and accurately marked, making this method useful for packaging, labeling and storing information on these surfaces. Laser marking is safe for use on food and medical equipment, and is an important tool for identifying and tracking industrial parts.
Advantages of laser engraving with marking machine
- High image quality;
- Durability of engraving, unlike other methods of processing;
- Affordable cost of equipment;
- High speed of material processing;
- No risk of material damage during operation;
- Easy operation;
- Equipment versatility.
- Types of laser engraving
The most common methods of laser engraving include:
Contour engraving. The image is obtained by drawing outlines. The method is used to transfer text, numbers and fine lines to the material.
Raster engraving. In this case, the image is engraved with a set of dots (pixels). As a result, the pixels are reassembled into a highly detailed image.
Contour engraving is less energy consuming and has a higher material processing speed. But raster engraving allows you to achieve maximum detail and realism of the images applied to the material.
