How does a laser mark metal?
Many laser machines use CO2 lasers to cut, etch or engrave designs on various materials such as wood, paper, and rubber. Unfortunately, CO2 laser cutting systems cannot cut, etch or engrave metal the way they can on other materials. For this, you need another laser: a fiber laser cutter.
What makes fiber lasers better for cutting metals? Its extremely small focal diameter produces high-intensity output. High-precision fiber laser cutters are not only suitable for marking compounds like CO2 laser cutters; they can also safely cut and engrave metals.
Here's how it works. Each machine has a laser head containing strategically positioned mirrors and a focusing lens. The machine produces a beam of high-intensity light that exits through a focusing lens (with the help of a refractor). The beam exits through the tip of the laser source and reaches the surface of the sheet metal or item on the cutting area.
Use marking compounds like Enduramark or Cermark to add your design to the metal before it enters the laser beam. It is also fed into the computer memory of the laser cutter. When the laser is run over the painted surface, it permanently burns the design into the metal.
The beam produced by the laser tube is invisible to the naked eye. What you will see is the laser head moving at high speed, directing the laser beam according to a design programmed in the computer.
