How to Troubleshoot the Weak and Unstable Laser of the Laser Marking Machine?

in FAQs about Laser Marking, , ,

The reasons for the weak laser of the laser marking machine include:

unstable power supply
pollution of the optical lens
power attenuation caused by long use time, and optical path and setting problems

The reasons for the unstable laser also include:

unstable power supply
signal interference
high laser temperature

Weak laser

1. Check the working current: Check whether the power supply is stable and whether the current reaches the rated working current.

2. Check the optical lens: Check whether the collimator output lens is dirty. If there is any pollution, wipe it gently with a cotton swab dipped in absolute ethanol. Be careful not to scratch the lens coating. Check whether other optical lenses are contaminated, such as red light beam mirror, galvanometer, and field lens.

3. Check the power attenuation: The power attenuation after the laser has been used for 20,000 hours is a normal power loss.

4. Check signal interference: The disconnection during the marking process is usually due to signal interference. For this reason, the leads of weak current and strong current cannot be bundled or run on the same side. The signal line with shielding function should be used; The ground wire is not in good contact.

5. Check parameters: Check whether the pulse width frequency has been set within the required range.

6. Check the optical path: Confirm whether the isolator light spot is normal (the light spot is round and there is no dark spot). Check whether the output light of the laser is blocked (make sure that the output end of the isolator and the galvanometer port are on the same horizontal line when installing).

Laser is unstable

1. Check the power supply: Check whether the power supply of the laser marking machine is stable and whether the current reaches the rated working current.

2. Check signal interference: The disconnection during the laser marking process is usually due to signal interference. For this reason, the leads of weak current and strong current cannot be bundled or run on the same side. The signal line with shielding function should be used; The ground wire is not in good contact. Check whether the 25-pin signal cable is an anti-interference cable and whether the ports are in good contact.

3. Check the temperature of the laser: If the temperature of the laser casing or isolator shell is too high, and the temperature is close to the critical temperature (refer to the ambient temperature of 45~47℃), the light will be unstable.
