Guns Marking with Fiber Marking Machines (fiber laser engravers) – applications and advantages

Fiber laser marking machines are one of the many types of laser CNC cutting and engraving machines available on the market today. They have many applications in industries like the dental industry, jewelry making industry, battery making industry, aerospace, building semiconductors, printing, the solar industry and more.

They are certainly not the only type of laser that handles engraving and cutting tasks but they are one of the most versatile for a wide range of precision industries. Fiber lasers deliver some of the best degrees of beam control ensuring that they can deliver extremely precise work. These are the types of lasers that are commonly used in medical surgeries because they remain quite easy to use but also extremely simple to customize for any type of work.

In most manufacturing applications for fiber laser marking machines the setup is relatively simple. The machine must first start with a fiber laser, some type of computer control system for the laser, a worktable as well as a galvanometer scanning system. The scanning system works to control heat and improves the stability of the laser by providing ongoing monitoring for the computer control system. The computer control system can be used to control the laser as well as an arm for placing it on the axes for the program of inputs. The table holds the part that is being marked and the laser handles the process of the engraving.

This type of system is very similar to other CNC controlled laser engraving machines but a fiber laser engraver can have some huge advantages over other types in the market today:

This system can be set up easier: The glass tile system has a high conversion efficiency and it doesn't require any of the strict phase matching like some other types of lasers on the market. As a mature technology there is also an extensive amount of assistance available for this type of system setup.

It's less expensive to own: these types of lasers have been on the market for a very long time and as a result they have benefited from miniaturization, a larger market demand and a much cheaper manufacturing cost. These types of lasers offer greater precision and they are typically much less expensive to own or purchase than some other lasers which are available on the market today.

Can deliver a multi-wavelength output: With new types of controls available on fiber marking machines, it's possible to have a much greater degree of precision with all of the work that you do. These types of lasers are revered for their ability to perform multi-wavelength output ensuring that a marking machine can adjust for various types of surfaces all within the same program.

Nearly maintenance-free: rather than having to change a cutting heads, replace gas canisters and more these devices are designed to operate nearly maintenance-free. Air cooling is all that is required to keep this device operating and there's no need for thermal electric or water cooling hookups/maintenance. They work extremely efficiently and they rarely break down. The machines have an extremely high tolerance for dust, humidity, vibration and even high/ low temperatures.

One of the safest processors for marking/engraving: is there are very few moving pieces within the device and it remains highly resistant during the manufacturing process, this remains one of the safest ways that you can mark an object permanently. There's no need for solvents, acids or even a complicated cooling system.

Extremely efficient: With the details enabled within many of the software programs it's possible to mark thousands of characters within an area within just a few minutes.

Spectacular details: The detailed images are available at around 600 dpi ensuring that manufacturers can go far beyond marking a simple serial number. These devices are capable of replicating advanced logos, images, codes and more.

Less chance for compromising a part in manufacturing: A fiber laser is extremely careful in the way that it generates heat. By ensuring that heat is delivered at a very small target area this can bring a greater degree of strengths throughout the material around a mark. Other types of engraving devices can commonly compromise the strength in the area where something is engraved even with the heat that it generates.

As one of the best manufacturing techniques for marking everything from medical devices all the way to firearms and jewelry, the fiber laser represents must-have technology in engraving for manufacturing. If you do not currently have one of these machines within your company and you regularly provide engraving tasks, you should consider investing in one of these engraving devices as it's one of the cheapest and best available right now.
