The difference between laser marking machine and laser engraving machine

The common characteristics of laser marking machine and laser engraving machine are all processed by laser, and they all belong to advertising equipment. A laser marking machine is a device that uses a laser beam to make permanent marks on the surface of various materials. Laser engraving machine is an advanced equipment that uses laser to engrave materials that need to be engraved. Laser marking machines are used in the advertising industry and various packaging industries. Laser engraving is used in the advertising industry, as well as in various decoration and automobile industries.

So what are the specific differences between laser marking machine and laser engraving machine?

1. Difference 1: The working format is different.

The working area of ​​the laser marking machine is not particularly large, just as large as an ordinary desk.

Some low-power laser engraving machines do not have a large processing area, but some high-power laser engraving machines are mainly used to cut metal. The processing area is very large, at least as large as a bed.

2. Difference 2: Speed ​​difference.

The speed of the laser marking machine is much faster than that of the laser engraving machine. The laser marking speed is determined according to the softness and hardness of the product material, and the marking can be completed in 1 second at the fastest.

3. Difference 3: The depth is different.

The laser engraving machine can engrave in large size or cut, and the depth is far more than that of the laser marking machine.

4. Difference 4: The laser is different.

The optical path system of the laser engraving machine is composed of three reflective lenses and a focusing lens. The laser is generally a carbon dioxide glass tube. The lifespan of glass tube lasers is generally within 2000-10000 hours, and carbon dioxide glass tube lasers are all disposable.
The lasers of laser marking machines are generally metal tube lasers (non-metal marking machines) and YAG solid-state lasers (metal laser marking machines), and their service life is generally more than five years. The metal tube of the laser marking machine can be inflated again for use.

5. Difference Five: The price is different.

The price of laser marking machine is different due to different materials, ranging from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands. Non-metal laser engraving and cutting machine, the price of low power is much cheaper than laser marking machine, but the price of laser engraving machine for cutting thick metal is relatively higher.
