Some customers may ask: Is it better to use fiber laser marking machine or CO2 laser marking machine for my product? More specifically, what is the difference between these two laser marking machines? What materials can they be used for?
Fiber laser marking machine can mark all metals and some non-metals, but there are many non-metals that cannot be marked, including ceramics, wood, leather, cotton and linen fabrics, etc. Marking these materials is a long-term development of CO2 laser marking machine. Of course, there are still many non-metallic materials that need to be tested
Below we explain their different wavelengths from a technical point of view. Fiber lasers produce lasers with a wavelength of 1064nm, and CO2 lasers produce lasers with a wavelength of 10.6μm. Metals and non-metals have different molecular structures and different attraction to light, so different products correspond to different lasers.
If you still have some questions, you can send samples to HantenCNC. We will test samples for you free of charge and recommend a suitable laser marking machine for you.
