Types of Laser marking machines according to laser absorption of materials

in Blog, ,

Laser marking machines can be divided into two series according to the characteristics of laser absorption of materials, one using solid-state lasers and the other using CO2 lasers.

Customers can choose different series of laser marking machines according to the characteristics of the materials.

The commonly used materials are classified in the following table.

Solid-state laser marking machineCO laser marking machine
