1. CO2 laser /(CO2 laser marking machine)

1)Principle

CO2 laser marking machine principle: CO2 laser marking machine, or carbon dioxide laser marking machine (CO2 is carbon dioxide). It is a laser galvanometer marking machine using CO2 gas as working medium. CO2 laser marking machine is a CO2 laser with CO2 gas as the medium, CO2 and other auxiliary gases are charged into the discharge tube on the electrode to add high voltage, the discharge tube produces glow discharge, so that the gas emits a wavelength of 10.64um laser, laser energy amplified, after the galvanometer scanning and F-Theta mirror focusing, under the control of computer and laser marking control card. The marking of images, words, numbers and lines can be carried out on the workpiece according to the requirements of users.

2)Constitution

CO2 laser marking machine consists of CO2 laser, 10.64 field mirror, 10.64 beam expander, CO2 laser power supply, scanning galvanometer, control computer, laser control card, laser control software, laser frame, laser circulating water system, circuit control system and other parts.

3)Advantages and application areas

The main features of CO2 laser marking machine are: using carbon dioxide laser, belonging to the general model, post-focusing mode, small size, high integration.

This machine is suitable for marking most non-metallic materials, such as paper packaging, plastic products, label paper, leather cloth, glass and ceramics, resin and plastic, bamboo and wood products, PCB board, etc. CO2 laser is a gas laser with a wavelength of 10.64 um in the far infrared optical band. CO2 gas filled discharge tube is used as the medium to produce laser. When high voltage is applied to the electrode, glow discharge is produced in the discharge tube. The gas molecule can release the laser, and the laser beam is formed after amplifying the laser energy.

2.Green laser /(Green laser marking machine)

1)Principle

Green laser marking machine uses high-power multi-mode laser diode pumped to produce green laser beam after laser frequency doubling, and then through computer control of high-speed scanning galvanometer deflection marking or cutting. Two laser beams are projected from different angles into transparent objects (such as glass, crystal, etc.), accurately intersecting at a point. Because two laser beams interfere and cancel at the intersection point, their energy is converted from light energy to internal energy, releasing a lot of heat, melting the point into a tiny hole. The machine accurately controls the intersection of two laser beams at different locations, creating a large number of tiny holes that eventually form the desired pattern.

 

2)Advantages and application areas

The green laser with 532 nm wavelength has obvious advantages: smaller spot diameter, more concentrated energy, high electro-optic conversion efficiency, good beam quality, marking accuracy below 10 micron level, neat marking frame, no explosion point, no thermal deformation. Mainly used in glass, crystal products, surface and internal marking, ceramics, metals, electronics, plastics and other products. It belongs to the category of cold light. It is also suitable for some products with high heat reaction and high precision.

3.Ultraviolet laser/(Ultraviolet laser marking machine)

1)Principle

Through photochemical ablation, that is, by laser energy to break the bonding between atoms or molecules, making it into small molecules gasification, evaporation. The focus spot is very small and the heat affected zone is very small, so it can be used for superfine marking and special material marking.

2)Constitution

The main components of UV laser marking machine are: focusing system, trigger type, computer control system, laser power supply, laser, galvanometer field mirror scanning system, marking control software.

3)Advantages and application areas

Ultraviolet laser marking machine with its unique low-power laser beam, especially suitable for ultra-fine processing of the high-end market.iPhone, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food and other polymer packaging bottle surface marking; flexible PCB board; silicon wafer micro-hole, blind hole processing; LCD liquid crystal glass, glassware surface, metal surface coating, plastic buttons, electronic components, Communications Equipment,  and other fields.

4.Optical fiber laser/(Optical fiber laser marking machine)

1)Principle

Optical fiber laser marking machine principle: Optical fiber laser marking machine is the use of laser beams in a variety of different substances on the surface of permanent marking. Marking effect is through the evaporation of the surface material to expose the deep material, or through the light energy causes the chemical and physical changes of the surface material to “engrave” out the trace, or through the light energy burns off part of the material, showing the desired etched patterns, text, bar code and other graphics. The so-called fiber laser marking machine refers to the use of fiber laser marking machine, fiber laser with small size (no water-cooled device, using air-cooled), light is good quality (base mode), maintenance-free and so on.

2)Constitution

Fiber laser marking machine is mainly composed of fiber laser, high-speed scanning mirror, marking software, industrial computer and cabinet. Fiber laser is the core part.

3)Advantages and application areas

Mainly used in: plastics, electronics, metals, ceramics, tobacco and other materials marked out the required text, pattern, bar code and other graphics. Optical fiber laser marking machine easy to operate, fast marking, clear and other advantages, making the production efficiency of enterprises more efficient. Our commonly used pulsed lasers are 10W, 20W, 30W and 50W.

Megatrend: Automotive Infotainment Microelectronics

Is your SMT factory ready for the increasing electronic automotive demands? As consumer interest shifts from engine performance to interior infotainment, the automotove microelectronics manufacuturing demands will continue to rise. The latest and upcoming electronic technologies in vehicles, i.e. navigation technologies, sensor controls, smart technologies in vehicle and cellular communication is creating urgency now more than ever to evaluate your manufacturing process.

Considering the rising demands for the latest electronic gadgets and the predicted growth in Electronic Vehicles (EV) and autonomous cars makes you question how much production you should be doing in-house for the most growth, higher profits and most efficient productivity. Automotive Electronics and IoT are in the midst of growth, and there are many expected changes in the very near future fueling this growth. Design activity will remain strong and that this will ensure new products enter now and in the coming years. Miniaturization of device footprint fuels innovation in printed-circuit board (PCB) designs.

Outsourcing manufacturing is no longer as cost effective as it once was, as labor costs are continuing to rise, as well as importing and exporting costs. Companies are finally realizing in order for the highest productivity, quality, and monetary gains, considering domestic manufacturing is the solution.

The electronics industry is an ever fast-changing world, and we are here to help you keep up with your business advancements and needs. What trends are you noticing? Have questions on how you can keep up in your industry? Let us know.
