Laser Engraving Machine
Laser etching (often called engraving) is the practice of using laser to carve objects. In short, laser engraving is a process of selectively removing the micro layers of materials to form visible marks on the treated surface. Depending on the material, the interaction between the laser and the material may be different. IFtech, is a trusted cnc fiber laser equipment manufacturer and supplier, always provide quality laser engraving machine with lower price. Today, let’s list the tips of laser engraving equipment.
What is laser engraving machine
Laser engraving machine consists of three main parts: laser, controller and surface. A laser is a drawing tool. Meanwhile, a beam of light emitted from it allows the controller to track patterns on the surface. In addition, the controller determines the direction, intensity, moving speed and diffusion of the laser beam aiming at the surface. Laser engraving uses high power laser to vaporize the material surface, leaving visible marks with a depth between 0.02 inch and 0.125 inch. Laser engraving is a useful process for personalizing or customizing objects made of wood, leather or stainless steel. However it may not be suitable for industrial part marking applications. Because the depth of the cutting can damage the performance of key aspects of the material.
Choice of laser engraving or laser etching
Laser etching is a special type of laser engraving that can be cut very shallow, usually only 0.001 inch deep. So when we choose laser engraving machine as well? Let’s have a read.
Laser engraving technology is usually used to carve metal workpieces that will be subject to various abrasion or surface treatment. The most outstanding feature of this process is that it can engrave two-dimensional codes with high readability after post-processing.
