What can you do with a Monport laser engraver?

The materials used to develop the concept of laser engraving are mainly divided into two categories, metal and non-metal. Monport provides two types of laser cutting machines most commonly used in the market: CO2 laser engraving machine and optical fiber marking machine.

In general, the materials that CO2 or fiber lasers can mark, engrave or cut are almost unlimited. CO2 laser engraving machine is mainly used to realize the laser engraving concept of non-metallic materials. The fiber laser machine mainly realizes the idea of laser engraving metal. Both laser engraving machines can be found on Monport's official website. With these two types of laser engraving machines, you can realize a variety of laser technologies:

  • Laser engraving:

Laser engraving

Laser engraving is a process where the laser beam physically removes the surface of the material to expose a cavity that reveals an image at eye level. The laser produces high heat in the engraving process, which leads to the evaporation of the material. This is a fast process because each pulse evaporates the material. This creates a void on the surface that can be noticed by both the naked eye and the touch. To use the laser engraving machine to form deeper marks, repeat several times.

  • Laser cutting:

Laser cutting

Laser cutting is a production technology that uses light beam to cut various materials and thicknesses. The size of laser cutting machines varies greatly. Monport has a small desktop laser engraving machine with a power of 40W to a super large industrial laser cutting machine with a power of 80W. It can meet different cutting needs. Laser cutting machine can cut a variety of materials; The only criterion is that the cut material can absorb the light of the laser beam, evaporate when exposed, and will not release corrosive gases that will harm the laser.  For Monport, most wood, acrylic and leather can be cut by laser cutting machine.

  • Laser marking:

Laser cutting

Laser marking refers to the situation that occurs when the beam interacts with the material surface to slightly change its characteristics or appearance. This is achieved by slowly moving a low-power beam on the material using a method called discoloration, which can produce high contrast marks without damaging the material. The laser heats the material, resulting in oxidation under the surface and blackening the material. It applies low temperature to metal surface annealing. All this is done while keeping the surface intact.

  • Laser etching:

Laser etching

Laser etching is a subset of laser engraving, which occurs when the heat of the beam causes the surface of the material to melt. The laser beam uses high temperatures to melt the surface of the material. The molten material expands and produces raised marks. Unlike engraving, the etching depth is usually no more than 0.001 inches. It can be performed on bare, anodized or electroplated metal surfaces, as well as polymers and ceramics.

  • Laser coding:

Laser coding

Laser coding technology is a popular non-contact permanent high-quality coding technology. The laser system is suitable for permanent coding of text, time and date, bar code, serial number, etc. When the continuous ink jet printing system is not practical, this technology is an ideal coding alternative. Compared with other coding systems, laser technology has many advantages. Due to the ability to create high-quality, permanent discrete markers, laser code is very suitable for demonstrating very important applications. The laser system does not need to purchase ink or consumables to encode the product, which reduces the cost of ownership and reduces the maintenance and downtime during the life of the system. Due to the lack of ink and other liquids, laser coding system is an environmentally friendly choice for manufacturers who need to mark their products. Both CO2 and fiber laser systems can produce permanent and clean marks on various substrates.

  • Laser labeling: 

Laser labeling

Food laser labeling is a special application of CO2 laser marking. By laser engraving logos and bar codes on food, you no longer need traditional plastic packaging or label stickers. Laser engraving food is not only more eco-friendly, but also natural brands are non-toxic, safe and efficient. In addition, in the long run, it is more cost-effective to choose to use laser engraving machines to mark food.
