1. Identify processing demands
Firstly, the buyers can determine their processing demands, the materials, and the dimensions, etc. And don’t expect that buying one marking machine can do everything. The manufacturers divide the marking machines into various models in order to deal with various processing tasks. If the machine model cannot match the processing demands, it will cause huge waste and will not achieve good effect.
Therefore, before purchasing the marking machine, the buyers must fully explain the processing contents and requirements to the suppliers. The contents include the size of work-pieces, the quality, thickness and weight of materials, and the marking effect, etc.
2. Understand the performance of important parts of the marking machine
1) The quality of the laser is the most important factor affecting the quality of the marking machine. It is recommended to choose a marking machine with a well-known and well-configured laser as much as possible to ensure your marking effect.
2) The optical lens of the marking machine directly determines the quality of the marking effect. The good optical lens can effectively increase the marking speed of the laser machine and ensure the accuracy of the graphics.
3) Check the quality and performance of screws and guide rails, which are also an important part of the marking machine. Good screw and guide rails guarantee the accuracy and performance of the marking machine during long-term use.
3. Good after-sales service
No matter how well a marking machine is made, the users will encounter various problems during the operating process. When the users encounter the unsolvable problems, whether the company can provide timely solutions is particularly important. This is also an important factor that the users need to consider while purchasing a marking machine.
The cost of machine and maintaining combines the integrated CO2 laser marker price. A responsible CO2 laser marking machine manufacturer provide low cost laser marking machine with considerations of the two aspects. The low cost machine may have not low CO2 laser marker price, but it has high-quality and low-cost expend, and it is also easily to maintain, and long time to use. All of these factors compose the low cost laser marking machine.
In order to guarantee the working efficiency and extend the service life of the machine, the users must maintain the CO2 laser marking machine regularly.
1. Cleaning of optical lens
The lens of the laser marking machine is easy to be stained with dust or other contaminants. It needs to clean the lens every day.
For the cleaning of lens, the operators shall wipe the lens gently, and not damage the surface coating. The process of wiping the lens should be done gently to prevent falling. When installing the focusing lens, the operators need to make sure to keep the concave surface down.
2. Cleaning of the guide rail
During the operation of the machine, a large amount of dust and smog may be generated. And the smog and dust may accumulate on the surface of the guide rail for a long time. It will have a great impact on the accuracy of the machine. It can form corrosion spots on the surface of guide rails, which shortens the service life of the machine. Therefore, it needs to clean the guide rail of the machine every half a month. And turn off the machine before cleaning.
1. Fastening of screws and couplings of CO2 laser marking machine
After the motion system has been working for a period of time, the screws and couplings will become loose. It will affect the stability of the mechanical motion. Therefore, during the operation process, the operators observe whether there are abnormal noises or phenomena in the transmission parts. And then, if finding any problem, it needs to fasten or maintain in time. In addition, the operators shall use tools to tighten the screws one by one regularly. The users shall tighten the screws and couplings for the first time after operating the machine for about one month.
4. Checking the optical path system
The optical path system mainly consists of the reflecting lens and the focusing lens. There is no deviation problem of the focusing mirror in the optical path. But three reflecting lenses are fixed by the mechanical parts. Generally, there is no deviation under normal conditions. But it is better for the user to check the optical path before the operation each time.
The operation of the CO2 laser marking machine is relatively simple, without complicated procedures. The following briefly introduces the operation steps of the laser marking machine for reference.
1. Steps of starting up
The operators must turn off the machine after checking and confirming the water pipeline and electric circuit in a normal state.
The steps of starting up the marking machine are as follows:
- Check the power line of the marking machine, and make its connection accurate and reliable.
- Switch on the main power. And the power indicator turns on.
- Confirm that the emergency stop button is pressed down.
- Turn on the computer and the computer monitor.
- Screw the emergency stop button in the direction of the arrow, to make it pop up. And turn on the laser power, adjust the laser power to the working current.
- Take off the lens cap; and at the moment, the operators can start the marking process.
2. Steps of turning off the machine
After the operators complete the marking process, it needs to turn off the laser marking machine according to the turning-off steps.
- Adjust the working current of the laser power supply to the minimum.
- Turn off the computer.
- Turn off the power of the galvanometer.
- Press the stop button.
- Turn off the key switch.
6) Disconnect the incoming power supply.
- Do not use the CO2 laser marking machine in a humid working environment to avoid electric leakage. When using the laser machine, the operators must maintainit frequently. In case of finding any electric leakage, the operators must stop the operation immediately and carry out inspection and maintenance.
- When using a CO2 laser marking machine, pay attention to the current. Under the condition of the lower current,the machine can work continuously for about 4 hours. If the current is high, it needs to shorten the operating time as much as possible. This is to avoid damage to the machine.
- 3.When using a CO2 laser marking machine, the ground connection of the machine shell must be done.
- 4.Ifit needs to repair the machine, the power supply must be cut off first And it also needs to discharge the high voltage of the machine.
The CO2 laser marking machine uses the infrared light band and CO2 gas laser. The CO2 gas is charged into the high-voltage discharge tube to generate glow discharge and release the laser. After the amplification of laser energy, through the galvanometer scanning system and the focusing lens, the laser beam is formed. Under the control of the marking control system, the laser beam will mark images or letters on the work-piece according to users’ requirements.

Nowadays, our professional after-sales service includes the installation, operation, and maintenance of the CO2 laser marker. And we all know that the laser tube and reflective lens of the CO2 laser marker are consumables. And they all have a certain life span and need to be replaced after a period of use. This requires the manufacturer to provide a strong after-sales service guarantee to provide these consumables in a timely manner. Therefore, the CO2 laser marker price with more complete after-sales service is relatively high.
The user's processing requirements include processing materials, processing effects, etc. The processed material generally refers to the attribute of the processed material and the thickness of the material. The processing effect usually refers to the level of processing quality requirements. Therefore, the stricter the user's processing requirements, that is, the higher the machine configuration requirements, the higher CO2 laser marker price. In addition, for laser welding machines that must be customized, it may be accompanied by improvements in machine technology, so the price is higher than ordinary machines.
In addition to the core components mentioned above, processing requirements and after-sales service factors have a great impact on the CO2 laser marker price. The machine brand, processing function, assembly process, etc. also have a great influence on the CO2 laser marker price.
