Fiber Laser Marking & Engraving Machines

Avestron Laser Marking and Laser Engraving Solutions

 

Fiber lasers perform high-speed marking and engraving of parts without the need for any consumables, and as a result, they have become the preferred marking technology. Fiber laser marking machines are ideal for marking identifiers, codes, and graphics on metal, plastic, and ceramic materials.

High throughput production environments such as pharmaceuticals, beverage, and extrusion often use fiber lasers for high speed marking of their products with clear, high contrast markings. High-quality, permanent codes marked with precision ensure the traceability and branding of your products.

Why are an increasing number of manufacturers selecting fiber laser marking systems?

The growing need for product traceability and branding drives more and more manufacturers to integrate product coding and marking systems into their production environment. Fiber lasers have become progressively more affordable and inexpensive to operate (minimal parts replacement required and no need for consumables). The systems are capable of high-speed marking of many substrates and are ready to use with a quick and simple set-up.

Fiber laser marking vs. Inkjet marking 

Laser Marking

Advantages

  • Markings are high resolution & precise
  • Markings are permanent
  • No consumables cost
  • Can mark on wet, hot, cold surfaces
  • Marks curved surfaces
  • Very low maintenance
  • Item need not be moving during marking
  • Clean operation

Dis-advantages

  • Higher initial cost

 Inkjet Marking

Advantages

  • Lower initial cost
  • Marking speed (in some instances)

Dis-advantages

  • On-going consumables cost
  • Need for regular maintenance & clogged print-head
  • Inks may contain harmful chemicals and release strong odors & not-environmentally friendly
  • Limited print area & size
  • Print-head has to be close to the print surface
  • Often messy operation with ink deposits on the floor beneath the printer 

What is a fiber laser ?

In a fiber laser, laser beams are generated by exciting the atoms of a medium, such as a crystal, gas, or liquid to generate light of a certain wavelength. The light must be amplified before it leaves the medium. In many laser configurations, the process takes place in more than one stage. The wavelength of the outgoing beam depends on the excitement of the atoms and, therefore on the material properties of the medium. The diagram demonstrates the process of generating fiber lasers where a specially doped optical fiber provides the medium for amplification.

Mirrors and lenses are used to direct and focus the laser beam to individual points on a target. This creates high-contrast and high-quality marks as the beam hits the material surface.
