Atomstack Laser engraving machines and laser marking machines are two commonly used laser processing instruments. They have many different characteristics. Today we will discuss the difference between them.
Atomstack M4 laser marking machine uses laser beam to vaporize the surface material, expose the deep material, and make the surface material undergo chemical and physical changes, so as to engrave traces or burn part of the material through light energy, so as to present the required etching patterns and characters.
Atomstack S20 laser engraving machine is a process equipment that uses laser to engrave materials that need to be engraved. Laser engraving machine can also be called laser cutting machine, laser engraving machine, etc. It can laser on almost all materials such as wood products, acrylic lines, plastic plates, metal plates, stones, etc.
First of all, the functions of laser engraving machine and laser marking machine are different. The Atomstack S20 Pro laser engraver is mainly used for engraving patterns on wood products, plastic products, and metal surfaces, while the laser marking machine is used for marking and lettering on non-ferrous metals, metals, plastics, acrylic and other materials.
Different Processing Materials
Since the LaserPecker 3 laser marking machine does not require deep engraving, marking only needs to be marked with the logo and name. Most metal and non-metal materials can basically be marked. Use very little cutting. Laser engraving machines generally engrave or cut non-metallic materials.
Secondly, laser engraving machines and laser marking machines are also different in scope of application. Laser engraving machines are mainly suitable for engraving and finishing of various materials such as wood, leather, plastic, and pure metal alloys, while laser marking machines can be used for stainless steel, aluminum alloys, brass, zinc-manganese alloys, etc. Labeling, lettering processing. The marking machine can also be applied to plastic, hard plastic, crystal silicon, non-ferrous metal cover plate and acrylic processing.
In addition, laser engraving machines and laser marking machines work differently. The laser engraver mainly use the laser beam to bake the material precisely, which can control the surface of the material to form a pattern accurately, while the laser marking machine uses the laser beam to bake the material, so that the surface material forms a natural mark.
Different Performance Parameters
Finally, the performance parameters of laser engravers and laser marking machines are also different. The laser engraving machine has fast speed, high precision, short processing time, and more accurate patterns, while the laser marking machine can achieve more accurate marking and engraving, and the marking effect is finer, but its speed is slow and the processing time is long.
The price of a laser marking machine ranges from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands depending on the material.
Laser engraving and cutting machine, low power price is much cheaper than laser marking machine.
