The number of years a laser marking machine can be used is related to many external factors, such as the working environment. Here to exclude external factors to say that how many year a laser marking machine can be used.
There are three commonly used laser marking machines, fiber laser marking machine, CO2 laser marking machine, and UV laser marking machine, each of which has a different service life.
1. The service life of the fiber laser marking machine is 100,000 hours, which is equivalent to 11.4 years. Fiber lasers are the cheapest option and the most used lasers.
2. The characteristics of CO2 lasers are relatively rich spectral lines, high optical quality of the output beam, good coherence, narrow line width and stable operation. CO2 laser has relatively large power and relatively high energy conversion efficiency, and the energy conversion efficiency can reach 30~40%, which also exceeds the general gas laser. The service life of the CO2 laser is generally 40,000 hours, it needs to be inflated after 4w hours, and then it can be used again.
3. The effective light-emitting time of UV laser is 12,000 to 14,000 hours. According to the average used power and working time, the effective working time of the ultraviolet laser is 2 to 3 years.
In fact, the service life mentioned above does not mean that it cannot be used after that time, but it is related to some of the usual operations, which will lead to equipment loss during use, not to say that it cannot be used at all after 100,000 hours.
When we use a new machine, it is not necessary to turn on the power of the machine to the maximum. For example, when the new equipment starts to work, the laser power can be set to 50%, and the speed is 500. Change according to usage.
