What is A 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 systems adopt laser beam to mark label that has been made by graphic utilities. There are both 2D laser marking for flat surfaces, and 3D laser marking for curved surfaces.
2D Laser Marking System
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 System
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
Laser marking system has six different 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.
Varieties and Characteristics
Laser marking systems 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 marking system is more suitable for processing metals than UV laser marking system and CO2 laser marking system.
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 marking systems 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 marking systems are divided into fiber laser marking systems, CO2 laser marking systems, UV laser marking systems according to laser sources.
Laser marker machines are divided into mini laser marker machines, portable laser marker machines, handheld laser marker machines, desktop laser marker machines according to table sizes.
Laser marker machines are divided into home laser marker machines, hobby laser marker machines, industrial laser marking machines according to machine applications.
Laser marking systems are divided into MOPA laser marking systems, color laser marking systems, 3D laser marking systems, online flying laser marking systems according to functions.

- Jorge Silva from United StatesPosted a review for Portable Laser Marking Machine with Fiber Laser Source for Sale 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.
