What Is A Fiber Laser Marking Machine?

Fiber laser making machine is a new type of CNC laser engraving system that uses fiber laser generator to make a permanent mark on 2D & 3D surfaces of metals, nonmetals, and metalloids, which is widely used in hobbyists, small businesses, small shop, home shop, home business, school education, industrial manufacturing, and commercial applications. A fiber laser marking machine is also known as fiber laser engraver, fiber laser engraving machine, fiber laser marker, fiber laser marking system, fiber laser etching machine, fiber laser marking equipment, fiber laser stippling machine, fiber laser printing machine, fiber laser part making machine, fiber laser tool marking machine, fiber laser metal marking machine.

How Does A Fiber Laser Engraver Work?

A fiber laser engraver is an automatic laser marking machine composed of fiber laser generator, laser power supply, galvanometer scanning system, field lens scanning system, beam combiner, computer control system, focusing system, laser software, machine frame, red light indicator, laser marking control card, power filter, and more laser parts & accessories. The laser generator provides a laser source, which is expanded by the fiber and imported to the XY mirror of the scanning galvanometer. The combined control of marking software, scanning galvanometer and laser generator can mark permanent text or patterns on the workpiece.

The working principle of the fiber laser engraving machine is that a laser beam with extremely high energy density is irradiated to the surface of the product to be marked under the control of a computer, and the desired pattern or text is ablated.

Fiber laser generators have become a hot topic in laser physics research in recent years. It is unanimously considered as a new generation product that may completely replace solid-state laser generators. Fiber laser generator refers to a laser generator that uses rare-earth-doped glass fiber as the gain medium. The laser generator can be developed on the basis of a fiber amplifier. Under the action of the pump light, high power density is easily formed in the fiber, causing the laser energy level of the laser working substance to "populate number inversion". When a positive feedback loop (forming a resonant cavity) is properly added, the laser oscillation output can be formed.

The laser generator is composed of a working medium and a pump source enclosed in a pump cavity. The pump source "pumps" the working medium from the energy ground state to the excited state. If the "population inversion" is achieved between the two excitation energy levels, stimulated radiation (ie photons) can be generated, which can be amplified by resonating in the optical cavity and reflecting back and forth. A part of the amplified electromagnetic radiation is output to form a laser.

The laser generator introduces the 1064nm high-power laser directly into the processing surface through a soft single-mode fiber with a sheath, and the spot size after collimation and focusing reaches tens of microns or less, which is close to the diffraction limit. This type of laser can be used for marking, etching, burning, printing, or engraving various materials.

What Are The Features & Advantages Of Fiber Laser Engravers?

Fiber laser engraver has become a hot spot in laser physics research in recent years, and it is unanimously considered as a new generation product that may completely replace solid-state lasers.

Compared with the inkjet method, the laser marking system is more environmentally friendly and economical. The long-lasting marking will not be easily erased. The non-contact and non-destructive marking will not damage the substrate. The printing accuracy is high and small. It can achieve 0.12x0.12mm 31-bit 2D code laser marking, long service life, more than 100,000 hours of continuous work, fast processing efficiency, a 2D code can be completed in less than 1 second, beautifully marked, hand-touched. There is no obvious touch on the top, manual operation is simple and fool-like engraving.

1. It can mark a variety of metal and non-metal materials. In particular, it is more advantageous to mark materials with high hardness, high melting point, and brittleness.

2. It belongs to non-contact engraving, does not damage the product, has no tool wear, and has good marking quality.

3. The laser beam is thin, the marking material consumption is small, and the marking heat-affected zone is small.

4. High engraving efficiency, computer control, easy to realize automation.

5. The best way to engrave metal without tools.

What Are Fiber Laser Engravers Used For?

Fiber laser marking machines are widely used in all walks of life, as long as they need to be marked.

From an industry perspective, these types of laser marking machines are widely used in integrated circuit chips, computer accessories, industrial bearings, clocks and watches, electronic and communication products, aerospace devices, various auto parts, home appliances, hardware tools, molds, wires and cables, food graphic and text markings in packaging, jewelry, credit card, tobacco, military and many other fields, as well as mass production line operations, are the darlings of high-end ultra-fine processing market.

From a functional point of view, it can do:

1. Black Marking on Alumina.

This is a MOPA laser technology that requires an adjustable pulse width. Unlike ordinary laser marking systems, it can make alumina black.

2. Color Engraving on Metal.

This requires some adjustments and attempts on the parameters according to the material. Various colors can be printed on stainless steel.

3. Black Marking on Metal.

Not to mention this, it's almost the same as the second point.

4. Online Flying Marking.

What does this mean, that is to combine the laser marking machine with the assembly line, marking while feeding, so that we can greatly improve our work efficiency, for some needs to be placed on the assembly line marking is an absolute boon for marking items that are generally inconvenient to move manually.

5. Portable Laser Marking.

This type of laser machine is small and does not take up space, which can meet the basic marking needs. For customers with low marking requirements, the portable laser marking machine is very suitable.

From the material point of view, fiber laser marking machines have great advantages for marking hard, brittle, and dark materials. In other words, most metal materials, as well as some specific non-metal materials such as plastics, can be used for marking. The marking effect is subject to the actual effect, some materials such as hard plastics, all fiber and CO2 laser marking machines can be used to mark, but the engraved results are different. Of course, the prices of the two types of laser machines are also different, so customers need to be based on their own laser marking plans & projects and the cost control situation to choose.

In general, fiber laser engravers are loved by all walks of life for its price and usage cost, efficient production capacity, and powerful functions. I believe that in the near future, the laser marking opportunities will be more popular. The industry is even accepted and applied by the general public.

How To Use A Fiber Laser Engraver?

Nowadays, fiber laser engraving machines are more and more favored by various industries, and more and more people are beginning to understand and use fiber laser engraver. But for people who are new to this type of laser machine, they may not even be able to operate the most basic "turn on" operation. Although most manufacturers can provide machine training, there are some who do not provide training, or are workers who have been transferred to the position of operating this equipment, so let me explain the most basic operation method for everyone.

1. Turn on the main control box of the machine.

1.1. Correctly connect the laser and control card and power supply, turn on the power switch;

1.2. Turn on the key switch of the main control box;

1.3. Ensure that the emergency stop switch is not turned on (that is, the switch bounces up, which is a self-closing state);

1.4. Turn on the laser power switch of the control box;

1.5. Start the computer and turn on the computer monitor;

1.6. Start the power switch of the control galvanometer;

1.7. Start the red light switch;

1.8. Open the laser software in the computer to adjust the relevant parameters of the software for laser marking. At this time, ensure the working focal length of the laser (that is, the distance from the working to the laser marking head).

It should be noted that if you do not turn on the key switch of the control box first, the galvanometer and the red light will not respond if you press it.

2. Brief Guide of laser software adjustment.

2.1. Generally, when using the machine, the user only needs to adjust the "speed"/"current"/"frequency" in the laser parameter column;

2.2. Marking speed: the speed required by the user;

2.3. Laser Power: Set the percentage power of this laser device from 1% to 100% adjustable by laser software;

2.4. Frequency: Set the laser output frequency of this laser device to 10 to 100 KHZ through the laser software.

How To Maintain A Fiber Laser Engraver?

During operation, if the fiber laser engraving machine can be well protected, its service life can also be extended. The following tips will help you to understand how to maintain it in daily use.

1. Maintenance of marking head: Clean the guide rails with gasoline regularly, and add appropriate amount of lubricating oil after drying. It is recommended to do this work once every two weeks.

2. Maintenance of marking controller: After turning off the power of the controller, open the outer cover of the box, and use clean air for friendship games to blow away the dust inside. Pay more attention to the dustproof work on the outside of the chassis.

3. Computer maintenance: After the computer runs for a long time, a large number of junk files will also be generated in the system. If it is accumulated for a long time without cleaning, it will directly affect the normal operation of the software.

4. It is necessary to ensure the air circulation around the machine to avoid the problem of overheating.

5. Do not move the machine while marking, as this will damage the life of the laser machine.

6. When the machine fails to run, you need to cut off the power first, for fear of problems with the power switch, unstable voltage or excessive current, damaging the laser generator and other parts.

7. When the machine is not in use, please cover it with a hood. Remember to cut off the power supply. It is recommended that the bottom of the machine be cushioned to prevent flooding.

8. The cleaning method is to mix absolute ethanol (analytical grade) and ether (analytical grade) in a ratio of 3:1, use a long-fiber cotton swab or lens paper to intrude into the 8 mixture, gently scrub the lower end surface of the focusing lens, each wipe When trying one side, the cotton swab or lens paper must be replaced once.

9. After each marking project is completed, the workbench of the machine needs to be covered to prevent the lens from being contaminated and affecting the laser beam, which will lead to insufficient laser energy and affect the quality of marking.

10. If the project that is engaged in laser marking will cause dust, it is best to equip a vacuum cleaner, because once the dust is attached to the focusing lens, it will affect the laser power and energy output, affect the quality of marking, and even cause the lens to break due to excessive heat absorption, so if you find that the marking effect is not good, you should check the problem of the lens first, and clean it once it is found to be contaminated.

In order to allow users to better use the fiber laser engraver, and extend the service life of the laser marking machine at the same time, inspection, care, and maintenance should be carried out on time.
