Custom etching is an important aspect of many businesses, yet many companies still insist on outsourcing their marking work to other companies. Such a decision seems strange in the modern world, especially since etching has become so important at multiple different layers in production, assembly, and design. Laser etching and marking technology is used in all manner of ways, from product numbering to artistic etching found on jewelry, home furnishings, and more. Since etching is such a versatile and necessary aspect of many contemporary businesses, it pays to have your very own machine for your work. At HeatSign, we understand the importance of laser marking technology and are dedicated to providing businesses with the best technology possible, whether it’s a portable fiber laser machine or a heavy-duty CO2 laser marking machine.
Part of having your own machine is knowing which kind of laser technology will best suit your business’ needs. A fiber laser machine, for example, is best used for metal, where accurate and permanent marks are needed that won’t compromise the integrity of the product being marked. If you’re working with a wide range of materials, however, a CO2 laser marking machine is still your best bet. Able to be used on a wide range of materials, from hard plastic to glass or even cardboard, a CO2 laser marking machine can handle a diverse workload without compromising quality.
CO2 laser marking machines are some of the oldest gas laser machines that are still used today, and the reasoning is quite simple. They are still some of the most powerful and consistent laser technologies that we have developed. While much of the technology has remained the same throughout the years, HeatSign’s high-quality, professionally-designed CO2 laser marking machines use the latest technologies to improve on an already great product.
Here are some CO2 Laser Marking Samples:
Here’s how a CO2 laser marking machine works: A specialized tube is filled with carbon dioxide gas. Electricity is then run through the tube to generate light and that light is then focused through the gas into a high-intensity laser.
One of the key advantages you’ll find with a HeatSign CO2 laser marking machine is the consistency of the laser. The technology, while now decades old, is still one of the highest-power continuous wave lasers currently available, giving you unparalleled power that is consistently strong. Our CO2 laser marking machine is strikingly efficient as well, helping you cut power costs without sacrificing the quality or strength you’ve come to expect from a HeatSign product. Some CO2 laser marking machine, in fact, can have output power to pump power of 20 per cent, which is quite high for laser technology.
Depending on your needs, HeatSign has two different kinds of CO2 laser marking machines that can help your business get the accurate and essential etchings and markings you need for your business to stay successful. Our first is the HS-CL20. With an output power of 20W and a marking area of 100mm x 100mm, this product is perfect for making accurate and consistent markings in all manner of products, including leather, glass, plastic, and more. It comes with a user-friendly design and a scanning head that makes your job much easier and much more efficient. The other CO2 laser marking machine, the HS-CL30, is designed to be compact and powerful. The 30W output means a much stronger laser, yet the marking area remains the same as the HS-CL10, meaning you can get deeper etchings, around 0.5 mm, without sacrificing accuracy. It’s designed to work maintenance-free for 20,000 hours, which makes it perfect for consistent, private enterprise use for large companies and smaller operations alike.
The HeatSign range of CO2 laser marking machines is perfect for businesses that want to do their important etchings and markings in-house. Combining precision, power, and consistency with the best technology available, our machines can give you the results you need in a fast, safe, and effective manner.
