Working Principle

CO2 laser marking machines are gas lasers that are based on a carbon dioxide gas mixture, which is stimulated electrically. With a wavelength of 10.6 micrometers, they are mainly suited for working on non-metallic materials and on most plastics. It has a relatively high efficiency and feature a very good beam quality. They are therefore the most widely used laser types. The result of CO2 laser marking is the deep matter that is displayed through the evaporation of 2D/3D surface material, so as to mark out exquisite patterns, signs, trademarks, dates, logos or letters.

2. Wait for 5 to 10 seconds, press the trigger button on the external control panel, the ammeter displays a value of zero, after 3 to 5 seconds, the krypton lamp is ignited, and the ammeter displays a value of 7A. (Refer to the operation manual of laser power supply);

3. Turn on the power supply of the galvanometer;

4. Turn on the computer and call up the required marking file;

5. Adjust the laser power to the working current (10~18A), and then you can start marking.

After marking, turn off the power of each component in the reverse direction according to the above sequence:

1. Adjust the working current of the laser power supply to the minimum (about 7A);

2. Turn off the computer;

3. Turn off the power of the galvanometer;

4. Press the stop button;

5. Turn off the key switch;

6. Disconnect incoming power.


The laser tube light voltmeter has instructions.

1. Abnormal light emission and heat in the light-guiding joints.

It is common that the light guide joint is loose and the laser tube is not installed properly.

Inspection: Same light correction.

Solution: Replace or adjust the light guide section and correct the light path.

2. The laser power drops.

It is common in laser tube aging.

Inspection: Use a multimeter to check the voltage regulator, and use a high-voltage meter to check the working voltage of the laser tube.

Solution: Replace the aging laser tube and replace the damaged components.

The laser tube does not light up.

1. The indication of the voltmeter is common when there is an open circuit in the power supply line. Poor contact with foot switch or manual switch.

Inspection: Measure with a multimeter.

Solution: Repair or replace.

2. The voltmeter has no indication.

Frequently, the fuse is broken, or the circuit is open.

Inspection: Measure with a multimeter.

Solution: Replace the fuse, or connect the circuit.

3. The power indicator does not light up.

Commonly, the fuse is broken, the incoming wire is in poor contact, the indicator light circuit is bad or the indicator light is broken.

Inspection: Check the fuse, check the power supply line, and check the indicator circuit.

Solution: Replace the fuse, repair the wire and replace the indicator light.

4. Continuous burning of the fuse is usually caused by a short circuit in the machine and serious dirt in the machine.

Inspection: Check the wire level by level, mostly because the high voltage part has a short circuit.

Solution: Repair the short circuit and remove the dirt.

5. There is discharge sound or arc light in the machine. There is usually dust, water or air humidity and corrosive gas in the machine.

Inspection: Observe the discharge point in a dark place.

Solution: Remove dust, water, etc., and change the working environment.

6. The laser output is unstable.

It is common in the laser machine where there is poor contact, and there are slight intermittent short-circuit points in the machine.

Inspection: Check the line level by level.

Solution: Replace the wire, re-weld the wire end, and clean it.
