Laser marking: difference between CO2 and Fiber Laser

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

There are different types of laser marking mainly used to mark, engrave or cut different types of materials for different industries.

The laser markers available on the market are distinguished in the first place by the laser sources mounted inside them: mainly we are talking about CO₂ and fiber laser marking machines.

CO2 Laser Markers

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

CO2 laser markers use gas lasers based on a gaseous mixture of electrically excited carbon dioxide with a wavelength of 10.6 micrometers. This type of laser marker is particularly suitable for processing organic materials and most plastics.

The CO₂ range of laser marking machines is perfect for any type of production line: even those with high speed.

This is because the power of the laser marker can be modulated: Arca has created a range that goes from 10 Watts to 80 Watts.

Laser marking on cardboard, glass, metal, ceramic, paper, plastic and PET, wood and rubber.

Fiber Laser Markers

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

Laser fiber markers produce the laser beam by means of a so-called laser seed and amplify it in specially mounted glass fibers supplied with energy by means of pumping diodes. With a wavelength of 1.064 micrometers, fiber lasers produce a particularly small focal diameter, which means that the intensity per unit area is up to 100 times higher than that of CO₂ laser markers for the same average power emitted. The fiber laser is particularly suitable for metal marking, metal engraving and particularly high-contrast marking of plastics. Laser fibers are basically maintenance-free and stand out for their long service life.

A particular type of laser fiber is the MOPA laser, in which the duration of the pulses is adjustable. This makes the MOPA laser one of the most flexible lasers ever that can be used in many applications including color laser marking on steel.

They are suitable for these materials: metals, coated metals, plastics.

Laser marking on metal, iron, steel, plastic, polymers (except PET), gold, copper and nickel.

Laser marking machines - advantages

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

Laser marking machines guarantee a series of important advantages over all other printing systems:

No consumables to pay, order and manage in stock.

“Non stop” operation: no downtime (line stop) for replenishing consumables.

No waste to dispose: no TT ribbon support or empty ink cartridges.

99.9% efficiency: no moving parts subject to wear, no damaged head / burnt dot, no clogged nozzle or faulty TT tape.

Laser marking point on the label defined via software, without any mechanical adjustment and, where the marker is placed directly on the detacher:

  1. print apply function: last label printed, first applied, without a “queue” of already customized labels
  2. no postponement that complicates the path of the stripe.

DPSS Laser Markers

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

The DPSS (Diode Pumped Solid State) laser is the best choice among laser markers when it comes to quality. In the world of laser marking machines, LED technology stands out for its unique physical characteristics and performance: high power of the emission pulses (useful for engraving and cutting metals), and focus points that can reach a few tens of microns.

This laser marker works across short wavelengths (in the case of our products in the UV and Green spectrum) which are ideal for processing “complex” materials such as metals and transparent fibers.

Thanks to short high-energy pulses, this laser marker therefore does not excessively increase the temperature of the target surface, so as to avoid the creation of burrs, unexpected colors and structural alterations.

The choice of this laser marking machine is therefore ideal for minimizing imperfections and damage on the processed product.

Laser marking stations

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

Laser marking station with ergonomic, compact, industrial and intelligent structure.

The Arca laser marking station can be used as a standing or seated workstation. On specific requests, we equip this machine with linear axes in x and y direction and rotation axes with different clamping systems.

For integration into a production chain, this marking station allows for the longitudinal transport of the pieces. The side openings make it particularly accessible.

The Arca marking station is able to satisfy all customer needs thanks to its flexibility and suitability for numerous types of applications in every sector from automotive to pharmaceutical.

The marking station is compatible with all Arca marking lasers.
