PVC material is a non-crystalline vinyl polymer material, which has good resistance to oxidizing agents, reducing agents and strong acids.
PVC materials are divided into two types: soft and hard, and are widely used. Hard applications include pipes and plates, and soft applications include containers such as mineral water and beverage bottles. For a variety of different product applications, each product identification must be carried out to indicate the product model, brand, etc. For PVC materials, laser marking machines are usually used for marking.
As we all know, there are many types of laser marking machines. There are fiber laser marking machines for metal, and co2 laser marking machines for non-metallic materials.
Which laser marking machine can be used on PVC material?
CO2 laser marking machine uses CO2 gas as the laser light source, with high marking accuracy, fast speed, random control of the engraving depth, and high laser power, which can engraving and cutting various non-metallic products. No consumables, low processing cost, clear marking, high engraving and cutting efficiency, environmental protection and energy saving.
The wavelength of fiber laser marking machine is 1064nm, which can clearly engrave on the PVC material and display black. Fiber laser is considered as a kind of laser to replace semiconductor laser, and its application prospect in PVC material is also expected. Because the frequency of fiber laser marking machine can reach 80K, the light spot is very small, and the galvanometer with small light spot can achieve very high speed. The speed of the marking line can reach or exceed the effect of the CO2 laser.
Fiber laser marking machine is widely used in PCB board, chip opening, wire stripping, metal metal, plastic lettering, etc. Therefore, products made of this material are currently used in many occasions, such as electrical enclosures, sewer pipes, industrial accessories, etc.
