What Is Laser Marking Machine?
Laser marking machine is also called laser engraving machine, laser printing machines, laser etching machine, laser markers, laser mark machines, laser marking systems, laser stippling machines, laser labeling machines and laser marking tools,it uses a laser beam to make permanent marks on the surface of a variety of different materials, it is an optomechanical integration system integrating light, electronics, machinery and automatic control. The effect of marking is to expose deep materials through the evaporation of surface materials, thereby engraving exquisite patterns, trademarks and texts. Laser marking machines are mainly divided into CO2 laser marking machines, semiconductor laser marking machines, fiber laser marking machines and YAG laser marking machine, laser markers is mainly used in some occasions requiring finer and higher precision. Used in electronic components, integrated circuits (IC), electrical appliances, mobile communications, hardware products, tool accessories, precision instruments, glasses and watches, jewelry, auto parts, plastic buttons, building materials, and PVC pipes.
How Does A Laser Marking System Work? – Working Principle
Laser marking system is composed of a power supply system, a laser source, a cooling system,a optical scanning system, a Q switch, and a focusing system. The AC power supply respectively supplies power to the computer, Q-switch power supply, cooling circulation pump, laser power supply, laser scource, etc. The half mirror, YAG condenser cavity, and total mirror form a resonant cavity to generate laser light. After being modulated by the Q switch, a pulsed laser with a certain frequency and high peak power is formed, which reaches the surface of the worktable after optical scanning and focusing. The surface of the worktable can be moved up and down to adapt to workpieces of different thicknesses. The surface of the workpiece is on the focal plane of the laser. Laser marking system marking area of the laser beam, the walking speed of the laser beam and the number of repetitions required, the scanning system can move under the control of the computer to control the laser beam to mark the set text and pattern on the workpiece. The current software has automatic image distortion The correction function can realize the laser marking system of precise images. The deionized circulating water in the cooling system cools the Q switch and the condenser cavity to keep them at a certain temperature to prevent them from burning out. The laser scource has two functions: one is to indicate the processing position of the laser, and the other is to provide instructions when the optical path is adjusted.

Why Choose Laser Marking?
How to Use Laser Marker?
①. Turn on the power (after turning on the power, the work indicator is always on and the fan is running);
②. Insert the key switch and turn clockwise 90 to the “on” position;
③. Turn on the industrial control switch, the industrial computer will automatically start, and start laser marking system;
④. Make sure that the emergency stop switch is not turned on (that is, the switch bounces up, which is an automatic closing state);
⑤. Turn on the key switch, turn on the laser switch, and laser The system starts automatically;
⑥. Take off the protective cover of the laser galvanometer.
①. Open the marking software;
②. Select the marking file→Open→Select the file to be marked (or create a new and edit the graphic to be marked);
③. Alignment: click the “red light” below, the laser head will emit a red box to shoot on the marking part, move the workpiece to make the box fall on the part to be marked, and then click to stop the “red light” after adjustment, and then Fix the tooling. (Note: You must be quick when aligning, and the red light should not be used for too long, so as not to shorten the life of the light-emitting head.)
④. Focus adjustment: Place the workpiece template at the place to be marked, then check continuous marking, click “Continuous Machining” with the mouse, then click “Marking”, shake the handle to adjust the Y-axis up and down, until the laser acts on the energy of the work piece When the strongest, the sharpest sound, and the brightest color, it is basically the focal length. (TPLASER is here to remind you: “Continuous processing” is only used for focusing. After you have adjusted the focus, please remember to turn off “Continuous processing” before operating.)
PS: Manual focusing is adopted, which is slow and inefficient, and the accuracy of focusing cannot be guaranteed, so that a lot of waste products are generated; For this, TPLASER recommends that customers add an automatic focusing system. Only need to install a vision positioning system on the original laser marker, through the vision positioning system to achieve automatic focusing and marking, automatic focusing can be achieved even if there is a slight difference in the thickness of the workpiece.
⑤. Trial engraving OK, you can press the “Mark ( F2)” key to start marking. (To mark multiple workpieces, just repeat this step).
The above is the first time to mark a marked part. Save its graphics and marking parameters as a file, and measure the height of the laser head and the marking surface. The file will be retrieved from the computer and the height will be directly aligned during the next production. Ready to mark.
①. After confirming that laser marking machine is not running any software, turn off the key switch, turn off the laser switch, and laser marking system will automatically shut down;
②. Close the laser marking software;
③. Turn off the industrial computer in the computer system;
④. turn off the main power switch;
⑤. Pull out the key and keep it by a special person for the next use;
⑥. Put on the lens cap.

If laser marker always maintains stable performance and longer service life, it needs to be effectively maintained and maintained to ensure the normal function of the machine and improve the work effect. TPLASER introduces you how to maintain and maintain the laser marking machine
①The air-cooled machine, that is, the fan, will accumulate a lot of dust in the fan for a long time, which will cause the fan to produce a lot of noise, and it is also not conducive to exhaust and deodorization. When the wind of the fan is insufficient and the exhaust is not smooth, we need to turn off the power first to remove the dust in the fan.
②Water cooling requires the use of purified water, deionized water or distilled water. Tap water, mineral water and other liquids containing higher metal ions or other minerals should not be used. Pay attention to the replacement of the circulating water, usually once a week. The water tank is cleaned. It is necessary to ensure that the machine dissipates smoothly, and at the same time, no external heat is allowed to blow directly to the machine.
②Don’t put it next to the equipment with large vibration of machine tools such as stamping;
③The environment of the processing site must be smoke-free and dust-free, and do not work in a polluted environment.
