Laser Marking Machine for Brand Marking

Laser marking machine for phone

At, present, any industries for brand marking apply laser marking machine, and it’s no exception to mobile phone industry. Let’s take iphone for example. Since its establishment, from iphone 5 to iphone Xs, laser marking is essential for its part. Such as IC, metal conduction inside, there’s unique QR code for prevent from forgery. The black characters of producer and IMEI area looks like use ink print on it, but actually neither ink nor silkscreen, is disposed by laser. The shell of iphone is aluminium oxide, which is commonly known as blackening.

There are always parts by laser marking. For example, logo marking, phone shell, battery, etc. Even somewhere inside that we can’t see, there are  parts marked by laser.

 

Comparative Advantages

The traditional way of print is to use silkscreen. Silkscreen is smelly and hard to follow colors. The effect is not that good, and the components belong to Pb chemistry elements. At present, the more and more government only allow to use low carbon and environmental craft to do the logo marking. Mobile phones use eternal marking way—laser marking, will improve anti-fake ability as well as increase additional value. And the effect of laser marking, it will enhance the beauty of appearance.
With the development of times and demand of market application, the craft of logo marking by laser marking machine replaced former silkscreen.  And as a modern accurate processing means, laser marking own unbeatable advantages, if compare it with print, mechanical carving, electrospark processing. Thus, this kind of machine is maintain-free, flexible and reliable. The machine especially apply in areas that requires high-accuracy、depth and smoothness. Not only Iphone, but other popular phones has same requirements to reach the best effect.

In short

Mobile phone and personal electronics is changing every single day. And that trend is intelligent and portable, beautiful. People are willing to have a personalized phone. At the same time, laser is improving other micro-electronic manufacturing industries. As the development of technology, this marking method will take the No.1 place in marking craft. The advantages are a lot. More important is  which is a friendly-environment craft.

Is the fiber laser marking machine able to cut?—Tony

Is the fiber laser marking machine able to cut?

The marking machine able to cut or not,  that is the most question I was asked when I was in Shanghai for APPP EXPO last week. During the EXPO, we displayed our fiber laser marking machine to audiences. We run this machine, let it to mark, to engrave. And because of the effect is perfect. Our machine attracted lots of customers to circusee. Because we engrave the stainless steel and aluminum on the EXPO, so many customer ask us the question. Whether it can cut?

So first, in principle, yes, the machine is able to cut metal indeed. But it is not same like laser cutting machine. Because of the laser source are different,the laser source of fiber laser marking machine is pulse laser. However, laser source of fiber laser cutting machine is continuous laser. The laser type is different. The more important is fiber laser cutting machine’s laser power stronger than fiber laser marking machine a lot.

So the fiber laser cutting machine is much easier to cut metal sheet than fiber laser marking machine. And when we use laser marking machine to cut metal, In principle, this is a process of repeat marking. Base on our knowledge, laser mark once will left 0.01m‘s depth on material. So if people want to cut metal by laser marking machine, in principle, you need let the machine repeat over and over again. And wait for a long time, then the materials should be cut off by the machine.

So, how about in reality? Is the machine able to do that. If you really want to cut some metal by fiber laser marking machine. First you need enough time to wait, after you confirm your material’s thickness. Then you can start the machine to do it right away. And the laser craft is a kind of heat treatment, so ensure pause the machine after a while, let the material be cool. If the machine continuous processing, the material is easy to out of shape. And the focal depth is limit. So ensure the focal point is on the surface as well.

Tips for Using Fiber Laser Cutting—Tony

Tips for Using Fiber Laser Cutting

Nowadays, fiber laser cutting became a popular trend for various industries need metal cutting. More and more factories have their own machines for metal cutting. But since the laser cutting working process is a new craft, some customers still can not operate the machine very well. Actually, if you do know the principle of laser and machine. Then there is not a problem. So today, I will give you some useful tips. It might help you to better understanding how to use that.

 

Carbon Steel.

Carbon Steel is not a high-reflection material. It is not like aluminum or brass. This material is the most suitable material for fiber laser cutting. For the cutting effect, any machines you can find in the market are able to cut carbon steel with a perfect effect.  The application of carbon steel is more and more extensive. The maximum thickness of carbon steel plate can be cut by modern laser cutting machine up to 20MM. the cutting seam of carbon steel can be controlled in the range of satisfactory width by using oxidation melting cutting mechanism, and the cutting seam of thin plate can be narrowed to about 0.1mm.

Stainless Steel.

Laser cutting of stainless steel, using the energy released by a laser beam to the surface of a steel plate to melt and vaporize the stainless steel. Laser cutting of stainless steel is a fast and effective method for manufacturing of stainless steel sheet as main component. Cutting speed, laser power, air pressure and so on are the most important technological parameters affecting the cutting quality of stainless steel. Compared with low carbon steel, stainless steel cutting requires higher laser power and higher oxygen pressure.

But the stainless steel cutting achieves satisfactory cutting effect, it is difficult to obtain the completely non-stick slag cutting seam. In general, high pressure nitrogen and laser beam coaxial injection are used to blow away molten metal so that no oxide is formed on the cutting surface. This is a good method, but more expensive than conventional oxygen cutting. One alternative to pure nitrogen is to use filtered compressed air in the workshop, which consists of 78% nitrogen.

Fiber laser advantages in metal processing industry—Tony

Fiber laser advantages in metal processing

Trends—Fiber laser

At present, a variety of industries use fiber laser technology well.,especially in the metal processing industry. So far, more and more people advocate “flexible manufacturing”. The metal parts industry is transforming from mass production to flexible small batch and diversified production methods. Laser technology is able to  adapt to a wide range of materials, shapes and sizes, especially for flexible processing quickly, and will play a central role in this transformation. At the same time, based on the high precision, high speed and high flexibility of fiber laser, the combination of automation and laser system is the development trend. Under the general trend of Industry 4.0, these combinations will become closer. Especially lately, automated cutting and welding products continue to show high-speed development. Also the application fields are more extensive.

For fiber laser processing industry, metal processing industry is one of the most important application markets. The competition in the Chinese sheet metal market has now gradually turned into competition for high-quality, high-tech products. In order to comply with the development trend of the international market, the transformation of processing technology is inevitable. Laser processing techniques and processes, including cutting, welding, marking, and cleaning, are increasingly being used in the processing of metal materials.

Reality—Fiber laser

In recent years, laser cutting has become an ideal solution for the sheet metal cutting industry. Due to its high efficiency, high energy density, non-contact processing and flexibility, and its advantages in precision, speed and efficiency. As a sophisticated machining method, laser cutting can process almost all materials, including two-dimensional or three-dimensional cutting of thin metal sheets. In the field of sheet metal cutting, from micron-sized ultra-thin plates to tens of millimeters of thick plates, efficient cutting is possible. It can be said that laser cutting has set off an important technological revolution in the sheet metal processing industry.

2D laser marking or 3D laser marking—Tony

 2D laser marking or 3D laser marking

When industry come into this new age, laser processing has become a popular processing method. This is must inevitable. Because it is fast, efficient, green and environmentally friendly, this kind of process wins the favor of more and more users certainly.
The common two-dimensional laser marking machine has been widely used in the plane marking of various products. The 3D laser marking machine can realize the research and development of high-quality marking equipment for three-dimensional surface. And it has become a research hot spot and important point for market development.

The differences between 2D laser marking and 3D laser marking:

First, a wider range and finer lighting effects. There are two types marking of 3D machine : front focusing and rear focusing. When the front focusing mode adopts, the main purpose is to achieve a larger marking range. Generally, the X and Y axis deflection lenses is larger, incident laser spots is larger and obtain smaller focusing spots with higher laser beam energy density. So as to meet the standard requirements of a larger area.

Second, the focal length can change to realize three-dimensional marking. Because 3D marking can quickly change the focal length of laser and the position of laser beam. So it is possible to mark curved surfaces that cannot be realized in 2D in the past. After using 3D marking, the cylindrical marking in the light projection range can be completed at one time, greatly improving the processing efficiency. Moreover, the surface shape of many parts of industrial products is not just a plane, so there is really nothing for 2D marking. At this time, 3D marking is easier to realize.

Third, it is more suitable for deep carving. There are inherent defects in traditional 2D marking for deep carving on the surface of objects. The laser focus moves up in the carving process. So the laser energy acting on the actual surface of objects will drop sharply. And it seriously affects the effect and efficiency of deep carving. 3D marking for deep engraving processing does not have the above problems, which not only ensures the effect but also improves the efficiency.

How does the lens affact?—Tony

How does the lens affact?

Lens size

When customer purchase a laser marking machine, the one important question is the lens deciding. Why this is so important? It is because the machine will only with one lens.  So that means if you choose one which is  incorrect. Then your machine may not able to achieve what you want it to do. So in usual, there are these model below:

50 * 50mm, 110 * 110mm, 175 * 175mm, 200 * 200mm, 300 * 300mm.

The lens’ price are same. So there are lots of customers are willing to choose bigger size. Because the model defined by working area. The customers who want the biggest one was thinking that might process bigger stuff. But is the idea correct?

Definitely no, I always say that there is not a machine could do anything for you.

How to choose lens?

First you need to know what is the maximum size you need to mark for your object. If the object is only 100*100mm, Then you choose 110*110mm. Do not choose bigger size. Because laser is a kind of light. If you do want to engraving, deep engraving, or even cutting. The lens you choose bigger, it means the laser from two sides are weaker.

When the scanning area reaches a certain level, the light spot diameter is very large, not sufficiently fine. Because the spot becomes large,the distortion increases,so the power density of laser decreases rapidly, and the working distance lengthens. This inevitably leads to the loss of laser energy. So it doesn’t conducive to precision machining.

By the way, when customers choosing it, the customers also need to consider the overall configuration. If you already decide to purchase a 20w machine. But you still want a 300*300mm lens. Then the power of laser is very weak.

So  in short, to choose best one for a machine, you need to consider it carefully.

What is Mopa laser marking machine?—Tony

What is Mopa laser marking machine?

What is Mopa laser marking machine?  As a sales person, for this question, I was often asked. So what is the Mopa laser on earth? I will give all the persons who read my blog a best answer.

Mopa principle

Mopa is a name of laser source type. The difference between Mopa and regular fiber laser marking machine is not too big. Because, Mopa is fiber laser in principle. But Mopa’s pulse is adjustable. But for regular fiber laser machine, the laser source’s pulse is fixed. However both of them are fiber laser, the only difference in principle is whether it adjust the pulse.

Thus, why people design a laser source that could adjust laser pulse? What is it used for?

Since people can adjust the laser pulse, then it achieves multi-color marking on metal materials.

Like the video below, We used Mopa to coloring mark stainless steel.

Mopa Functions

But as you can see, the speed of color marking is very slow.  So what other advantage make Mopa still occupy the laser marking market?

At present, the aluminium oxide is a general materials for smart phone case. The Mopa laser is very good to do it. If use the regular fiber laser source to mark aluminium oxide. It won’t mark black on it. You will see it is the grey color if you see at the front.  But if you see from two sides,  it will turn to black. And you can feel burr on the material surface. But using Mopa laser, these questions will be gone.

And  If you bought a Mopa marking machine. You just set the pulse be fixed. Then the machine will become a fiber laser marking machine. Then it will enhance the speed of marking. So the Mopa laser machine could become a regular laser marking machine. So that is why, price of Mopa will higher than fiber laser. Mopa laser machine has more functions.

In short, XT laser use the mopa laser source from JPT and Raycus in general. If you do interested in our machine.
