OUR LASER SYSTEMS FOR INDUSTRIAL MARKING
We offer all methods of laser marking, such as laser engraving, colour removal/material removal, annealing marking, colour change/foaming and carbonising.
Depending on the application, material and requirements of marking lasers, different types of lasers are used for marking by means of laser beams. CO2 lasers and fibre lasers are most commonly used in engraving machines.
The carbon dioxide laser, or CO2 laser for short, is one of the most frequently used industrial marking lasers for laser marking, as it is very efficient and also cost-effective. CO2 lasers are particularly suitable for laser engraving of plastics and wood or for laser marking of fruit and vegetables. But also glass, rubber, cardboard, coated metals and even paper and foils can be easily laser marked with this efficient laser engraver.
This makes marking laser systems with CO2 lasers particularly versatile. Laser engraving and laser coding such as data matrix codes, barcodes, logos or product numbers can be optimally produced with the CO2 laser. Whether in the automotive industry, medical technology, the pharmaceutical industry, the metal industry or in the packaging sector: laser engraving systems with the CO2 laser are widely used for good reason. From surgical instruments in medical technology to injection moulded parts for the automotive industry and natural branding in the food industry, they guarantee permanent and high-quality laser marking for identification and traceability.
The CO2 laser offers a working hour duration of approx. 50,000 working hours. This means that laser engraving and laser marking can be carried out for more than 10 years with this marking laser. During this time, there are no consumables as with other marking solutions. The quality of the laser marking does not decrease over the years.
The fibre laser, also known as the "solid-state laser", together with the CO2 laser, is one of the most frequently used lasers for laser engraving in industry. The fibre laser offers the highest beam quality and energy density. It is therefore ideal for laser engraving high-density materials such as hard metal or special plastics.
In addition, the fibre laser has good cooling because the fibres have a large surface area. Laser marking of metal parts often presents challenging conditions that the robust design of the fibre laser can easily withstand. The very good contrast quality far surpasses that of the CO 2 laser for laser marking.
The fibre laser offers a service life of up to 100,000 operating hours. This means that industrial laser engraving and marking can be carried out for more than 10 years without any problems. There are no consumables as with other marking solutions. The quality of the laser engraving remains consistently high over the years.
Further advantages are the high beam quality of the generated light and the high efficiency of the conversion process, which, depending on the doping, can reach over 85 % optically. This also saves energy, among other things.
BUNDLED LIGHT ENERGY:
LASER TECHNOLOGY FOR MARKING SYSTEMS
In simplified terms, a laser beam is bundled light that achieves a very high energy density. How does it work?
LASER is the abbreviation for "Light Amplification by stimulated Emission of Radiation" and means: light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. This light amplification is generated in the housing of the laser through the absorption and radiation of energy.
In the case of the CO2 laser, this laser-active medium is a CO2 gas mixture. Energy is supplied to the CO2 gas mixture by means of a voltage discharge, so that the light waves are generated which finally lead to the laser engraving. An opaque and a partially opaque mirror are placed at the ends of the CO2 laser, between which the light waves are reflected back and forth until they finally emerge from the partially opaque mirror as a laser beam and carry out precise laser marking.
In the case of the fibre laser, the laser-active medium that is excited to produce the laser beam is the doped core of an optical fibre. The long, thin strands of the glass fibre are about the diameter of a human hair. The laser light is guided through the glass fibre. Due to the length of the fibres, a very high amplification of the laser beam is possible. Similar to the CO2 laser, two mirrors are attached to the ends of the laser chamber to form a resonator. This creates a controlled laser for precise laser marking.
