Application introduction

laminates

Lasers help you create long-lasting markings and engravings, these durable markings on unusual shapes make your final product interesting and high quality. From a simple rectangular shield to complex contours and signs, production of a single piece or a small series is possible with a oree laser system.


Suitable metals for laser marking and engraving

  • Advertising signs
    Door signs
    Nameplates
    Switchboards
  • Dataplates
    Labels
    Object signpostings

WHICH METAL PRODUCTS DO YOU WANT TO MARK?

INDUSTRIAL LASER MARKING

Examples of applications

Laminates


Laminates are especially popular for laser engraving as they are well suited for both interior and exterior applications and available in many colors with different effects. Laminates are often used for signage such as dataplates, labels, signboards, nameplates or industrial markings.

Industrial laser marking: Examples of applications

What is the point of buying a laser for industrial metal marking?

  • What should be kept in mind when it comes to laminate engraving?


    For laminate engraving, the use of a vacuum table is recommended, which fixates the laminate on the table during the engraving process.The thinner the topcoat of the laminate, the faster this layer can be ablated.

Function and advantages of laser technology

  • Function of the Fiber Laser Cutting Machine

    The fiber laser cutting machine can be used for both plane cutting and bevel cutting, and the edges are neat and smooth, which is suitable for high-precision cutting of metal sheets. It is an energy-saving and environmentally friendly new products with space saving and gas consumption and high photoelectric conversion rate.

    • Advantages of a Oree laser

    • Excellent beam quality and good cutting quality

    • Fast cutting speed and high production efficiency

    • No burr in the cutting, high cutting precision

    • Auto focus, easy to operate and maintain

    • Very low cost of use, cost-effective

    • Closed design, safe and pollution free

    • Fast cutting speed and high production efficiency


  • Function of the CO2 laser cutting machine

    The CO2 laser cutting machine adopts a focusing mirror to focus the CO2 laser beam on the surface of the material to melt the material, while blowing the melted material with a compressed gas coaxial with the laser beam, and moving the laser beam and the material relative to each other along a certain trajectory to form a slit of a certain shape

    • Advantages of a Oree laser

    • The output continuous laser is to make the cutting section smoothest.

    • The laser cutting head does not contact with the surface of the material and no damage to the workpiece.

    • Can cut non-metallic materials and has a wide cutting range.

    • No need for molds, saving production costs.


  • Function of the fiber laser marking machine

    Fiber laser marking machine, with the good beam quality. Its output center is 1064nm, the whole machine life is longer about 100,000 hours, compared with other types of laser markers. The electro-optical conversion efficiency is more than 28%, relative 2%-10% conversion efficiency of other types of laser marking machine. Besides that it has outstanding performance in energy saving and environmental protection.

    • Advantages of a Oree laser

    • Can process a variety of metal, non-metallic materials.

    • Belonging to non-contact processing, no damage to the product, no tool wear, good marking quality.

    • Thin laser beam is thin, small processing material consumption and the processing heat affected zone.

    • High processing efficiency, computer control, easy to automate



Why should I buy a laser for engraving laminates


The laser beam is a universal tool for material processing, so there is no need for tool or grinding costs for milling cutters or drills. During processes like mechanical engraving, materials are often clamped in place or fixed with a vacuum. This extra step is unnecessary in the laser production process and saves time and money.Function and advantages of laser technology Efficient and cost-effective engraving Non-contact processing Simple high-quality digital manufacturingFine tools No tool wear

Can any type of laminate be used for laser engraving?

There are severalmethods for marking, etching or engraving metals. Depending on the material and the quality requirements, aluminum, steel, stainless steels and other metals can be engraved, marked or polished with a laser beam. The respective methods have special advantages and disadvantages.


How does the laser engraving of metals work?

Engraving is mainly used for stainless steel, alloyed metals and other metals. The engraving or, depending on material removal, deep engraving leaves a noticeable marking. The material is removed, in other words, material evaporates and the color changes. Due to the high energy of the laser engraver, materials such as stainless steel, titanium and other metals are directly vaporized. The brown color that is left behind on the metal can be cleaned using other marking processes (see polishing).


How does polishing work?

Polishing leaves a white marking on stainless steel and other metals. Polishing is a “lighter” form of engraving. The energy of the laser is reduced so that less material evaporates. As a result, less material is removed and on materials such as stainless steel, but also almost all other metals, a white marking is produced.


How does the laser marking of metals work?

The laser marking or annealing marking is an imperceptible marking that does not affect the surface of the material. No material is removed during the annealing marking. By heating the metal, however, a color change is achieved. For example, the color of the stainless steel changes at temperatures between 200°C and 300°C. Different colors can be achieved with different temperatures. The goal is usually a “perfect black”. Perfect black markings are possible on stainless steel and titanium, but not on other metals. Annealing is also possible on alloys that contain iron.


Engrave and mark metals with CO2 or fiber lasers?

The perfect tool for metal marking in terms of productivity and quality is the fiber laser. No pre- or post-treatment of the metal is required. The marking result is uniform and very precise, even for fine details.


Uncoated metals can be marked with a CO2 laser engraving machine using only laser marking solutions. The metal marking solution must be applied to the workpiece. It first needs to dry and then will be burned into the material during the laser process. Once the laser process has finished, the excess marking paste must be washed off.


The marking of sensitive surfaces of high-priced workpieces e.g. watches with laser marking sprays is critical due to cleaning. Furthermore, it is important to note that marking solutions are classified as hazardous materials. Thus, the corresponding safety regulations must be adhered to in order to protect your own safety and that of your employees.
