What You Should Know Before Buying an Affordable Laser Marking Machine?
What is Laser Marking Machine?
Laser marking machine is a type of laser system with CNC (Computer Numerical Control) which adopts fiber, CO2 or UV laser beam to leave permanent marks of letters, numbers, signs, logos, patterns, pictures on an 2D/3D surface such as metals (stainless steel, carbon steel, galvanized steel, alloy, copper, brass, aluminum, gold, silver, iron, titanium), wood, leather, fabric, plastic, glass which also includes color change due to chemical or molecular alteration, charring, foaming, melting, ablation, etc. This is different from ordinary inkjet printing and CO2 laser engraver. Laser marking machine has advantages of high speed, high quality, high precision, pollution-free, safety, easy operation, free maintenance and low cost.
Laser marking machines are also called as laser markers, laser mark machines, laser marker machines, laser marking systems, laser engraving machines, laser marking equipments, laser labeling machines, laser printing machines and laser marking tools.
Laser Marking Machine Working Principles and Features
Laser marking machines adopt laser beam to mark label that has been made by graphic utilities. There are both 2D laser marking machines for flat surfaces, and 3D laser marking machines for curved surfaces.
2D Laser Marking
The mirror galvanometers are used to scan laser beam and mark on 2D surface. The f˜ lens is used to concentrate the light on the 2D surface.
3D Laser Marking
The mirror galvanometers are used to scan laser beam and mark on 3D surface. They will move the focus lens (instead of f˜ lens) back and start adjusting the laser beam not only on X axis and Y axis, but also on Z axis.
Laser Marking Process
A laser marker has six different laser marking processes include annealing engraving, marking, staining, foaming, removing and carbonizing, which is widely used in industrial manufacturing applications, school education, small businesses, home business, small shop and home shop.
Laser Marking Machine Varieties and Characteristics
Laser marking machines are distinguished by the laser oscillator. We have fiber laser oscillator generating a 1.06μm laser beam, a UV laser oscillator generating a 0.355μm laser beam, a CO2 laser oscillator generating a 10.6μm laser beam. UV laser converts a fundamental laser to one-third wavelength by a non-linear optical crystal.
Fiber lasers are known for generating power effciently, thy are compact due to the oscillation principle. Fiber laser markers are more suitable for processing metals than UV laser markers and CO2 laser markers.
UV lasers are effected by the laser wavelength conversions, they can make detailed processing with a low thermal effect for the materials that have a high absorption rate for these wavelengths, however, the operating cost may be high. UV laser markers are very good for plastic.
CO2 lasers are more easily absorbed by clear materials because they have a longer wavelength than fiber lasers and UV lasers, this makes them good for marking glass or other clear materials. CO2 laser markers are very good for PVC, paper, rubber, glass and wood.
Laser Marker Types
As you are looking for, we always call them as laser metal marking machine, laser wood marking machine, laser jewelry marking machine, laser gold marking machine, laser stainless steel marking machine, laser bearing marking machine, laser plastic marking machine, laser glass marking machine.
Laser markers are divided into small/mini laser marking machines, portable laser marking machines, handheld laser marking machines, tabletop/desktop laser marking machines according to table sizes.
Laser markers are divided into home laser marking machines, hobby laser marking machines, industrial laser marking machines according to machine applications.
Laser markers are divided into MOPA laser marking machines, UV laser marking machines, color laser marking machines, 3D laser marking machines, online flying laser marking machines according to functions.

- Jorge Silva from United StatesPosted a review for Portable Fiber Laser Marking Machine for sale with affordable price on Sep 21, 2018
We engraved successfully on stainless steel with very good result. The software was on a small USB stick. The machine needs to be turned on before opening the software, or it will be in demo mode, the focusing is done manually and there is no distance indication, but overall you can see it is a quality machine for starting to engrave.
