What is a UV laser marking machine?

The UV laser marking machine is the laser equipment that uses ultraviolet as a working medium for marking processing. It is also named as UV laser marker, Ultra Violet laser marking machine, or UV laser machine.

The UV laser marking machine belongs to one of the series of laser marking machines. It adopts the laser beam to make permanent marks on the surface of various materials. The UV laser directly breaks the molecular chain of the materials through the short-wavelength laser to show the desired patterns and text. This is different from the evaporation of the surface substance produced by the long-wave laser to expose the deep substance.

The focus point of the UV laser is very small, and there are few heat-affected areas during the marking process. Therefore, the UV laser marking system can carry out the ultra-fine marking and high-precision material marking.

UV laser marking machine is also known as UV laser printer, and use the 3d laser printing technology. With the UV laser printer, you can create unique laser products. The result of UV laser printing is plane or stereo. The UV laser printing can mark on the surface of the object or create 3d model inside. Most UV laser 3D printers combine UV laser printing and cut, so they also are known as UV printer and laser cutter.

Applications of the UV laser marking machine

Applicable materials:

The UV laser marking machine is mostly used for marking and engraving of non-metallic products. Because the UV laser has a very small focus spot, it is suitable for ultra-fine marking and engraving processing.

The UV laser marking machine is mainly suitable for the surface and internal marking on the glass and crystal products. For example, these kinds of products include mobile phone screens, LCD screens, optical devices, automotive glass, etc.

UV laser marking machine can be used as the central machinery laser marker for marking on the packaging surface in many industries. For example, the industries include cosmetics, medicines, food, and other polymer materials processing industries.

Applicable products:

As the UV laser printer can be used in various industries, UV laser cutting machines mainly deal with products in the decoration industry, such as laser cut souvenirs. With UV laser printing technology, the laser cut souvenirs will have a smooth, high-contrast, and clean surface.

How does a UV laser marking machine work?

· Working principle:

The UV laser marking machine uses the ultraviolet laser beam to mark on the surface of various materials. The reaction principle of the marking processing of the ultraviolet laser is based on photochemical reactions. The UV laser marking machine cuts off the bonds between molecules or molecular structures under the control of computer. So that theses molecules of the materials become smaller ones, and then vaporize and volatilize. And then, the design patterns, symbols, or letters are formed on the surface of the work-piece.

· Working features:

  1. Small focus spot

Due to the extremely small focusing spot, the UV laser marking system is also named as cold laser processing. It almost has no thermal effect in processing and can perform ultra-fine marking and special material marking. It is the first choice for customers who have higher requirements for marking effects.

  1. No material charring

The beam quality of UV laser marking technologies is very good. As its heat-affected area is extremely small, and almost no heat effect produced, there is no material charring problem occurring.

  1. Non-contact processing

The marking process is non-contact and the marking effect is permanent. The UV laser marking technologies is mostly applicable for heat-sensitive materials, and the marking edges are smooth without burrs.

  1. Fast speed and high efficiency

In addition, the UV laser marking machine has fast marking speed and high efficiency. And the whole laser marking machine has the advantages of stable performance, small size, and low power consumption.

How to buy a UV laser marking machine?

Choosing a good UV laser marking machine can't just consider the laser marking machine price. It also needs to determine the materials for laser marking, the processing requirements and the services of the suppliers, etc.

1. Materials for laser marking

Firstly, the buyers may consider using what material for laser marking. Some may look for the laser marking plastic machine, and some may inquire about the PCB laser marking. Actually, as mentioned above, the UV laser marking machine is suitable for marking on the surface of non-metallic materials mostly. But some buyers may still have doubts. In this case, the buyers can ask the laser marking companies whether they can provide the proofing service. If yes, they can send the samples of the materials for the laser marking test. The supplier’s company will use their machines to mark on such samples and inform the marking effects to the users. And the buyers may make the best choice after seeing the marking effect and listening to the suggestions.

 

2. Specific processing requirements

The laser marking technologies can be subdivided into more specific processing techniques. For example, there are plane marking and three-dimensional marking. There is also portable laser marking machine and industrial laser marking machine for different processing demands. Before purchasing, the users must tell their detailed requirements to the supplier of the marking machine. 

The marking machines provided by DXTECH has a complete range of machine models. It can meet the marking needs of users in various industries. And the company can also customize the laser machines according to the special requirements of users.

 

3. Service of the suppliers

The competition in the laser industry is becoming increasingly fierce. Customers should not only pay attention to product quality and price. They need also to learn more about the services provided by laser marking machine companies. For example, whether the company will provide guidance on the installation and test run. After installation and test run, whether it provides professional training guidance and technical support for daily operation. If there is a complete set of service systems, there will be a good guarantee for the users to operate the machine smoothly.

You may see some manufacturers provide cheap UV laser marking machines, the responsible UV laser cutting manufacturers provide relatively reasonable UV laser marking machine price for their custom. The reasonable UV laser marking machine price is related to the quality, size, and functions of the UV laser printer. Nowadays, most UV laser cutting machines combine the UV printer and laser cutter, and the 3D printer UV laser technology, so the price is relatively high.
