    1.What is laser marking?

    As a cutting edge marking technology, laser marking takes the form of a labeling process applied to a wide range of materials. In this process, the laser beam serves to alter the surface of the marking material in a way to imprint a contrast varying in depth that indicates a specific marking content such as texts, bar codes, logos, pictures etc. The laser marking machines configuration and operation can be automated via computer, and by usage of control software users can make a variety of patterns and modify marking configuration according to the specified requirements of the marking application.

    So, what characterizes laser marking and makes it outstanding?

    Nowadays, laser marking is commonly used in many industries like automation, electronics, medicine and aerospace and so on. It has become the most sought-after marking technology due to the competitive advantages that can be gained from its process.

    2.Understand the mechanism of laser marking machines

    Lasers used for in laser marking machines belong to the ultraviolet and infrared ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum ranging from 355 nm for UV lasers to 1,070 nm and 10,600 nm for fiber and CO2 lasers respectively.

    To understand perfectly the mechanism of laser marking machines, it would be necessary to know what components a laser system encompasses and how laser beam occurs.

    How is a laser marking system constructed?

    A laser marking system consists basically of three core components:

    Energy source;also called pump source, this component provides the proper energy to process the excitation mechanism. Depending on the lasing medium, energy source used in a laser system can be an electrical discharge, flash lamp, diode laser light etc.

    Lasing medium; It is very imperative for deciding the wavelength of the laser beam. It can be whether of a solid state like optical fiber, crystal or a sealed tube filled up with gas like CO2, helium for example. When the energy emitted from pump source it passes through the lasing medium, then atoms excitation takes places which enables the amplification and storage of energy.

    Optical resonator; It consists of paralleled mirrors enclosing the lasing medium. One mirror is highly reflective (high reflector), and the other is partially reflective (output coupler) in a way to enable a continuous reflection of the photons between the two ends of the laser medium while releasing the excess of stored energy (photons) from the output coupler in the form of a laser beam.

    You may also watch this instructive and awesome video explaining how laser originates.

    How does laser marking work?

    It all begins with the release of a higher energy level (laser beam) by the excitation of atoms inside the lasing medium using a powerful energy source;

    Laser generation

    the released laser beam is directed through a partial reflector to reach the scanner head;

    later on, the laser will be reflected by X and Y axis turning mirrors on the marking area crossing the F-Theta focusing lens;

    marking finally occurs when the laser beam comes into contact with the surface of the workpiece (marking material), leaving durable marks that convey certain information.

    3.Familiarize with the types of laser marking machines

    There are three major types of laser marking machines with a substantial particularity in terms of energy source, lasing medium, optical resonators and the materials to be marked with. We are going to discuss each type thoroughly in order to help you become more familiar with their specifications and usage.

    CO2 laser marking machine

    Laser beam emitted by CO2 laser marking machines tend to perform very well on organic materials such as wood, card board, paper, leather and some materials like acrylic, glass and rubber, because with a wavelength of 10,600 nanometers, laser beam can be absorbed perfectly by these non-metallic materials as it delivers low marking contrast.

    How CO2 laser marking machine generates laser beam?

    Generation of laser beam

    These laser marking machines are equipped with a CO2 gas mixture filled-tube as a laser medium, an electric power source and two reflective mirrors. When the electric current passes through the gas filled-tube it triggers an excitement of gas mixture causing the emission of exited photons, which move forth and back inside the sealed tube until the emitted light gets shining enough to pass through a reflective mirror and creating a focused laser beam.

    You can watch this video about marking a wooden sample with a CO2 laser marking machine:

     

    Fiber laser marking machine

    Fiber laser marking machines are known as the most advanced laser marking systems due to their outstanding quality and reliability. Unlike CO2 based laser system, fiber laser marking technology delivers a high power laser beam with 1070 nanometers wavelength, which is good enough to leave high contrast marks on very hard materials like metals and some other sorts of materials including plastics and ceramics.

    How does fiber laser marking machine produce laser beam?

    Emission of laser beam

    Well, fiber laser marking machines contain an optical fiber that serves as a lasing medium, the fiber components consist mainly of some rare-earth substances like Ytterbium or quartz.

    The process is very simple and effective. The light emitted from a diode laser source is channeled through the optical fiber whose core ions get excited resulting in the amplification of the light, which gets focused into a lens until it turns into a condensed laser beam.

    You may watch this video about marking a piece of metal with a fiber laser marking machine:

    UV laser marking machine

    As its name suggests, UV laser marking system adopts an ultraviolet output of 355 nm wavelength, which is perfectly absorbed by a broad range of materials including metals such as iron, nickel, gold, copper and some plastics like ABS and PA besides glass.
    With the short wavelength and small focus spot, UV lasers can operate at a very high repetition rate and process on a micro scale, which make them a preference for applications that require fine marking especially in medical, technology and agriculture industries.
    Unlike other lasers that use thermal processing, UV laser marking machine applies a cold treatment on the material without causing unsuitable damage of the substrate.

    How is UV laser beam generated?

    Simply, the emission of UV laser beam needs a special crystal (solid-state lasing medium) to transform the infrared wavelength emitted from a standard diode pump (energy source) into a UV wavelength.

    4.What can laser marking machines be used for?

    Now that you’ve grasped the working principle of laser marking and have became more familiar with the main laser marking machines, it’s time to discover the multiple methods and applications of laser marking.

    Laser marking technology remains a key tool for realizing many industrial purposes

    Laser marking technology combines flexibility, versatility and high performance, this set of properties explain why this advanced marking technology has become gradually integrated in manufacturing processes of many industries. Having these properties allow companies to achieve different industrial purposes like branding, tracking, personalization and security.

    Branding

    Laser labeling company name, website and logo on the products serve in promoting the trademark.

    Tracking

    When the piece of material is laser marked it can be easily tracked down in real-time through its processing steps (product identification).

    Personalization

    Companies may boost their business by increasing product’s value with laser marking. In this respect, many products can be customized with customers’ logos and unique motifs.

    Security

    Laser marking is perfect for securing identification cards, once pieces of information are laser marked the marks can’t be in any way scratched or modified. In addition, attempts to counterfeiting brands can also be ideally prevented.

    According to the material composition, laser marks are imprinted by the following methods

    Annealing

    It is a particular laser marking method for producing black marks on metals. In this process, laser beam stimulates a chemical reaction on the material surface resulting in a noticeable color change without causing a removal of the substrate.

    Materials: metals

    Annealing

    Carbonizing

    By applying a high temperature, laser beam heats up the material surface forming a high contrast due to the carbon concentration on the altered area.

    Materials: organics (wood, paper), thermoplastics

    Annealing

    Coating ablation

    During this marking process, short pulses of laser with high power remove the coating layer until the substrate of material surface can be seen as a contrasting mark.

    Materials: coated materials, laminates

    Coating ablation

    Foaming

    This laser marking method is applied to imprint light marks on dark plastics. When laser melts the material, some gas bubbles are formed and pasted to the surface, which let the processed parts look much lighter than the unmarked rest of the material.

    Material: Thermoplastics

    Automation and easy control

    Laser marking machines are engineered to be controlled and automated by computers or touch panels. By simply modifying the laser marking settings on software, users can either run continuous laser marking on moving parts or laser marking each item apart.

    Adaptability to any kind of material

    The variety of laser wavelengths makes it possible that almost all materials reach the optimum absorption of laser beam so that the laser marking takes place.

    High-speed marking

    Fast laser marking contributes in lifting productivity levels especially if it were implemented at high-speed assembly line.

    Durable traceability

    Whether it is etching, annealing or other form of laser marking methods, marks will be always permanent and resistant to harsh conditions like heat and acids.

    Good readability

    Laser marking machines are capable of turning the most intricate graphics and the tiniest measurements into legible marks.

    Maintenance-free equipment

    Usually the life span of laser marking machines can last for up to 100.000 hours, which is offering stable operation and eventually low downtime occurrence.

    Low operational cost

    Unlike ink coding, laser marking technology doesn’t require consumables except for electricity that is necessary for generating the laser beam. For the long run, laser marking machines reduce operation costs and increase production efficiency.

    Non-contact marking process

    Laser marking is a damage-free process simply because focused laser beam alters precisely the targeted area without physically interacting with the marking surface.

    6.How to find reliable laser marking machine suppliers?

    Many laser marking machine suppliers are out there, all of them acclaim their equipment as the best choice and capable of satisfying ideally customers’ aspirations. The stakes are high because you will be inquiring about dozens if not hundreds laser marking machines, and some machines have probably few drawbacks.

    To pick out the ideal laser marking machine it is essential to weigh the pros and cons of each one. You need also to make sure about the quality of all technical components and decide on the right parameters for your applications.

    We have listed below what to consider, what to ask for and what to choose:

    1.What is your marking material?

    Choosing your laser marking machine depends tremendously on the type of material you’re going to be marking because each machine is designed to operate optimally with a specific type of material.

    Laser marking machineMaterials
    Fiber laserStainless steel, aluminum, copper, silver, gold, titanium, nickel, brass, chrome, rubber, plastics, some ceramics
    CO2 laserpaper, glass, plastics, rubber, leather, food, acrylic, wood and bamboo, jade, ceramics

    2. How is the capacity of marking precision?

    Make sure that the inquired machine has the capacity to produce accurate, legible and durable marks on your marking material.

    Try preferably to request your supplier to get your sample marked so you can evaluate the marking resolution. Remember to ask for the laser configuration used to mark your sample for your reference.

    3.Which laser power do you need?

    Two criteria decide on the optimal laser power, the marking application and the level of productivity.

    For better choice ask yourself these few questions:

        • What kind of material will be marked?
        • Do you need deep or shallow marks?
        • Do you want to get high or low marking contrast?
        • Are you willing to reach high marking speed?
        • Remember that organic materials need low wattage of laser than inorganic materials.
        • The higher are the levels of depth and contrast the bigger should be the laser power.
        • High laser power allows maintaining high efficiency and faster throughputs, which enables optimum productivity.

    Laser power wattages used in each laser marking machine:

    Etching (Acrylic)30 W40%600
    Coating ablation (Powder coating)20 W100%800

    4. How to choose the right marking area?

    Usually, the dimensions of your material but also the size of the marking application would guide you to choose properly the relevant size of your marking area.

    Sometimes, customers will probably need to process marking on many items having different dimensions, shapes and specific application requirements. In this case, investing in a large marking area would be advantageous (one-size-fits-all), but it will cost you more money.

    So why is large marking area costly?

    The size of marking area depends tremendously on the quality of the focusing lens, the focal distance and the wattage of laser power. The focusing lens is like a magnifying glass when the focal distance is short laser beam covers small marking area and mark perfectly with less power, but when the focusing lens gets farther from the target, laser beam covers a large marking area which needs high laser power to perform noticeable marks.
