Laser marking uses a laser beam to mark the surface of various materials. The effect of marking is to expose the deep material through the evaporation of the surface material, or to "carve" traces through the chemical and physical changes of the surface material caused by light energy, or to burn off part of the material through light energy to show the required etching, pattern, and text.
In terms of marking speed, the laser marking device is hard to beat by other traditional marking equipment, especially the optical fiber laser marking device is one of the best. The marking speed of the optical fiber laser marking device can reach 10000mm/s in an ideal state. At this time, some users may ask, how can we achieve the ideal state? Let’s take a look at the factors that affect the marking speed of the laser marking device.
The main factors affecting the marking speed of the laser marking device are as follows:
1. The size of the marking area. Large-format marking is certainly not as fast as small-format marking, because the deflection of the large-format marking galvanometer is much larger, which will naturally have a certain impact on the marking speed.
2. The depth of the marking of the laser marking device is an important factor affecting the marking speed: if the depth is required in the marking process, the parameters of the laser marking device need to be adjusted to increase the marking power and current of the laser marking device, which will affect the marking speed of the equipment during the marking machine.
3. The density of marking characters will also affect the speed. When the marking area is the same, the spot is the same, and the marking depth is the same. The higher the marking density, the slower the marking speed. After all, the density of the characters to be marked is large, which is equivalent to directly increasing the marking density and the target area.
4. The laser spot size of the laser marking device is also a factor that affects the marking speed. The larger the spot, the faster the marking speed. The smaller the spot, the smaller the marking area. Therefore, the spot size will also have a certain impact on the marking speed.
