Fiber Lasers (Near Infrared)
This class of Laser works on the near infrared spectrum producing a high resolution marking on metals, ceramics and some plastics, where the thermal effect of the CO2 far infrared Lasers is undesirable.
Fiber Lasers can be continuous wave or pulsed type. The pulsed versions are able to provide high peak power and mark most difficult materials like ceramics or metals at high speeds.
Fiber Lasers provide better energy efficiency and longer life that their CO2 counterparts. Their acquisition cost is also higher but the investment makes a lot of sense over time.
◉ Most metal alloys
◉ Jewelry, gift items, fashion
◉ Plastic welding
◉ Medical devices
◉ Electric & electronic products
✓Long life. Most sources will last 200.000 Hours or more
✓High efficiency, low power draw compared to CO₂
✓Works with metals and some plastics depending on the application (marking, microengraving, welding)
✓Higher initial acquisition cost compared to CO₂
✓With some metals the resolution with a U.V. Laser is better
✓Still Can’t work well with some plastics (thermal effect)
