Guide to Buying a 3D Laser Marking Machine for Beginners
The 3D laser marking machine adopts an advanced focusing method: front focusing. Through software control and movement of the dynamic focusing lens, it performs variable beam expansion before the laser is focused, thereby changing the focal length of the laser beam and achieving laser accurate surface focus processing on objects of different heights. This method can precisely control the laser beam’s shape and size by adjusting the beam expander’s rotation angle and speed to adapt to the marking needs of objects of different shapes and sizes.
In contrast, the 2D laser marking machines use a post-focusing method, that is, the laser beam needs to go through a series of optical transmissions and processing before focusing, and finally, the beam is focused through optical lenses, and then the focused high-energy beam is deflected to the designated position on the surface of the object to be processed to form a recessed permanent mark. The marking accuracy and speed of this method are limited by the accuracy and stability of optical transmission and processing. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the object to be processed remains stable during the marking process.
Features of 3D Laser Marking Machine
Larger Marking Range
The 3D laser marking machine adopts a three-dimensional focusing positioning system, which can achieve a larger marking range under the same focusing accuracy. This is mainly due to the use of larger X- and Y-axis deflection lenses, which allow the incident laser spot to be larger and obtain a smaller focused spot, the laser beam energy density is higher, thereby meeting the need for marking a larger area.
With 3D laser marking technology, marking can be performed at different depths or heights. This allows the creation of complex patterns, markings, or decorations on multiple surfaces of an object, providing greater design freedom.
Because 3D laser marking technology can handle complex curved surfaces and shapes, it is suitable for various workpieces of different shapes, including curved surfaces, spherical objects, etc. In contrast, 2D laser marking machines can only mark on flat surfaces.
Traditional 2D laser marking has inherent defects in deep engraving on the surface of objects. As the laser focus moves upward during the engraving process, the laser energy acting on the actual surface of the object will drop sharply, seriously affecting the effect of deep engraving and efficiency. However, 3D laser marking for deep engraving does not have the above problems, which not only ensures the effect but also improves efficiency.
Accuracy and Detail
3D laser marking machines generally have higher accuracy and resolution, enabling detailed engraving and marking. For applications that need to handle tiny details or require high precision, 3D laser marking machines are a better choice.
3D laser marking machine has a wide range of applications in art, jewelry, mold manufacturing, and other fields. Combining different materials and 3D marking technologies can create unique products and effects.
Applicable Industries of 3D Laser Marker
3D laser marking machines can achieve fine engraving and marking on the surface of jewelry to create personalized jewelry designs. Compared with 2D laser marking machines, 3D laser marking technology can add more complex and three-dimensional textures, or patterns on gems and metals.
Automobile Manufacturing Industry
3D laser marking machines can be used for marking and tracing auto parts. For example, create permanent serial numbers or markings on engine parts for quality control and after-sales service. In contrast, 2D laser marking machines can only perform simple markings on flat surfaces.
Art and Decorations
Use a 3D laser marking machine to create unique textures, dimples, and visual effects on artwork and decorations. This technique is often used on wood, glass, ceramics, and other materials to bring more artistic value and ornamental works.
3D laser marking can achieve permanent engraving of product logos, batch numbers, and brand information on the surfaces of more medical devices of various shapes.
3D laser marking machines can be used for the texture and mark of mold surfaces to achieve a unique look and feel to the product during the injection molding or die casting process. Compared with 2D laser marking machines, 3D laser marking technology can handle more complex mold shapes and curved surfaces.
How to Choose a 3D Laser Marking Machine?
Here are a few key factors to consider:
First, clarify what your application requirements are. Determine what kind of material you need to mark or engrave, and what your requirements are for accuracy, speed, marking area, and depth.
Make sure the 3D laser marking machine you choose is suitable for the type of material you want to process, such as metal, plastic, glass, or ceramics. Different materials may require different types of laser sources(fiber, CO2, UV) and parameter settings.
Accuracy and Resolution
Choose a 3D laser marking machine with sufficient accuracy and resolution based on your application needs. This will determine whether you can achieve the detail and clarity you need.
Marking Area and Depth
Consider the size and shape of the objects you need to mark and make sure the 3D laser marking machine you choose has a large enough work area and appropriate depth range to accommodate your workpieces.
Equipment Reliability and Durability
Understand the manufacturer background and brand reputation of the selected 3D laser marking machine, and check user reviews and feedback to ensure that the equipment is of reliable quality and has sufficient durability and stability.
Software and Control System
Evaluate the software and control system of the selected laser marking machine to ensure that it is easy to use, fully functional, and provides the required file format support and operating interface.
Service and Support
Understand the after-sales service and technical support provided by the supplier, including support in maintenance, training, and spare parts.
It’s best to consult multiple laser marking machine suppliers to compare features and prices between different brands and models before choosing. Choose the most suitable 3D laser marking machine based on your specific needs, budget, and future development plans.
Does the 3D laser marking machine require special software support?
Yes, 3D laser marking machines usually need to be used with dedicated marking software. This software can process 3D models, generate paths, and control the movement and power of lasers.
What materials are 3D laser marking machines suitable for?
3D laser marking machines are suitable for a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, ceramics, glass, wood, etc. Different materials may require different laser parameters and processing techniques.
What is the difference between 3D laser marking machines and 2D laser marking machines?
Unlike 2D laser marking machines that can only mark on a flat surface, 3D laser marking machines can process in three dimensions. This allows it to create more three-dimensional, layered designs and marks.
