Wow, it’s hard not to get excited about the advancements with etching machine technology, particularly with regard to fiber laser marking machines. In this article we are going to take a look at the production advantages, cost-effective benefits, and financial savings that upgrading to this tool can provide manufacturers.
Advantages of Fiber Laser Marking Machines
Various laser designs have entered into material processing applications. However, fiber lasers are transforming these applications using a mixture of improved system flexibility, enhanced optical performance, elevated component yield, outstanding reliability and extended up-time.
Common to a number of marking applications, fiber lasers don’t show the inadequacies in spot size output usually seen with other laser designs. The spot size continues to stay small, consistent and predictable throughout all the power levels and pulse sequences for the life-time of the laser.
As well, the quality of the high beam and spot size equals elevated irradiance on the focus. Thus, manufacturing tools with built in fiber lasers have the ability to produce improved results in less time, with less power levels.
Precision engraving, Flexibility, Power Modulation and Dependable Operations
You can’t forget about the efficiency of how the focused beam can consistently treat an extremely small, localized area of the material while only creating small amounts of heat in the adjacent area. This allows for superior precision cutting, marking and welding that can be done within 0.1mm to the more complex component parts.
When you look at the flexibility, power modulation, and dependable operations of fiber laser technology, you can see why it’s often selected as an upgrade to the traditional flash-lamp pumped solid state, and even DPSS laser technology that is used in numerous other laser-related industrial manufacture industries.
Cost-Effective Benefits of a Fiber Laser Marking Machine
The stable and enhanced marking performance of fiber laser marking machines helps to reduce the costs associated with maintenance, longer up-times, and enhanced production quality due to less scrap. As well, they’re very physically strong, making them ideal for even the most demanding industrial environment.
Advantages of a Fiber Laser Marking Machine for Industrial Manufacturers
Generally speaking, the ideal tool for any type of application boils down to necessary performance and a trade-off of the following four elements:
- Initial outlay
- Component yield
Along with the growing complexity of component assemblies, and the increased demands on functionality and quality, the distribution of tools furnished with fiber lasers that improve process control brings financial benefits for manufacturers.
Benefits to End Users
All these elements mean a maintenance-free architecture for manufacturers who want to cut their development, servicing, and production costs—along with the extra benefit of the ability to give their end users a more flexible, high quality product.
The best part is that end users can focus on their business rather than try to become an expert in laser maintenance.
