What’s materials can engrave by Fiber laser machine?

Many of our clients ask Focuslaser about the life working time of the machine, productivity, consumable parts and for how many materials the fiber can mark or engrave on. Many of them already know that the UV laser it can engrave almost all materials (see UV laser vs. Fiber laser engraving), but at the same time, they know that the UV laser is a technology three times more expensive than the fiber laser technology. Also the UV laser technology it works more slowly when you want to engrave metals. For this reason, many clients want to engrave their products with a Fiber laser machine which can mark at a higher speed than UV and with more deepness in several materials.

1) Metals

  • Aluminium
  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • Silver
  • Titanium
  • Brass
  • Tungsten
  • Carbide
  • Nickel
  • Stainless steel
  • Crome
  • Copper

2) plastics

The making and engraving of plastic with laser technology it can be complex for the simple reason of the vast different densities, mixes, and types of plastics. For this reason, UV laser is always the best option for engraving plastics, because UV laser it can engrave all plastics. However, if you are looking a machine that can mark over some specific plastic materials and engrave at the same at high speed on metal surfaces, then the fiber laser is the best choice. These are some of the most common plastics  Fiber laser can engrave PLT, PS, ABS, PBT, but if you want to make sure this machine can engrave your materials, contact us for more information, we will engrave your materials for free.

3) Fiberglass

The engraving on fiberglass it can be done with a blur effect if the materials aren’t cover for painting or another element that recover the surface. Because this material it is complicated to engrave you can contact us before and we can engrave your examples to be sure its the engraving effect you are looking.

4) Synthetic leathers

Some garments materials are rich on plastic polymers and for that reason our machine it can engrave it at high speed and with low power.

5) Carbon fiber

This material its easy to engrave with our machines and the result is typically always black color, for this reason isn’t the best option if you want to engrave on black carbon fiber because the contrast between material and engraving is low, and is hard to read or see the engraving.
