  Laser marking technology has been used more and more in the printing field in recent years, and laser marking can be applied to many kinds of materials including plastics and rubber, metal and silicon wafers.With the traditional laser marking machine engraving, chemical etching, screen printing, printing ink than with low cost and high flexibility, can control computer system, and laser acting on the workpiece surface generated by the tag strong permanent is its outstanding characteristic.
  At present, in the mark printing industry, laser marking has occupied more than 90% of the market.Laser marking is a big share because it has the following eight advantages:
1. Permanent:
If the mark does not fade because of the environment (touch, acidity, reduced gas, high temperature, low temperature, etc.).
It is not easy to imitate and change the marking of laser marking technology, which has a strong anti - counterfeiting.
Laser engraving laser scalpel "other than mechanical processing, can be in any regular or irregular surface printing tags, won't produce internal stress and marking after the workpiece, the original precision of workpiece.No corrosion on working surface, no workpiece wear, no poison, no pollution.
4. Wide applicability:
It can be processed by laser, and can be processed for various metals, non-metallic materials (aluminum, copper, iron, wood products, etc.).
5. High precision of engraving:
The laser marking machine engraving objects are fine, the minimum line width can reach 0.04 mm.Mark clear, durable, beautiful.Laser marks can be used to print large amounts of data on tiny plastic parts.For example, a two-dimensional barcode that can be printed with more precision and with higher resolution can be more competitive than that of embossing or jet marking.
6. Low operating cost:
The marking speed is fast and the marking is formed once, the energy consumption is small, so the running cost is low.Although the equipment investment of the laser marking machine is larger than that of traditional marking equipment, it is much lower in terms of operating costs.
7. High processing efficiency
A computer controlled laser beam can move at high speeds (at a speed of 5 to 7 meters per second) and the marking process can be completed in seconds.
8. Rapid development
Due to a combination of laser technology and computer technology, the user as long as the laser print can be realized on the computer programming, and can change at any time to print design, replacing the traditional mold production process, fundamentally to shorten the product upgrade cycle and flexible production provides a convenient tool.
