Custom Laser Marking & Engraving Machines

Customization

At Hai Tech Lasers, Inc. we strive to provide all around laser machines and services. While our standard offerings receive high praise, we understand that some customers have needs that require specialized custom configurations. We speak directly with these customers to understand their needs and design a laser marking system to exceed their requirements. 

The Laser Marking & Engraving Process

What is Laser Marking?

Laser marking uses intense light beams or pulses to leave a permanent mark on the surface of an object. Laser marking machines can perform various types of marking, including annealing, discoloration, carbon migration, etching, and engraving. The marking process is quick, precise, and permanent and can be done on materials such as wood, cardboard, paper, ceramic, glass, plastic, tungsten, steel, aluminum, and titanium.

Lasers that are ideal for marking include:

  • Fiber
  • CO2
  • Ultraviolet

These lasers emit a beam of light that focuses on the surface of an object, changing its properties and altering its appearance. Laser marking offers extremely precise and easy to read permanent markings without ink or paint, making it ideal for serial numbers, barcodes, and other machine-readable data with low margins for error.

What is Laser Engraving?

CustomizationLaser engraving is a popular option that provides a permanent and legible marking on an object through etching, ablation, or deep laser engraving. It is similar to laser marking, but the resulting appearance differs due to the depth of laser penetration. Laser engraving vaporizes a small amount of material with pulses of high heat light, quickly creating a cavity that provides texture with a sharp and contrasting appearance.

Laser engraving can reach depths of 0.125 inches in material like graphite but is limited to 0.020 inches in metals, making it ideal for parts that may become worn but not for parts where safety is crucial. 

Laser engraving is commonly used to create permanent serial markings on substrates made of:

  • Metal
  • Wood
  • Plastic
  • Leather

Differences Between Laser Marking and Laser Engraving

The major difference between laser marking and laser engraving is the amount of material lost in the process and the depth of laser penetration. Unlike the quick, high heat laser engraving process, laser marking is a slow, low energy, low temperature process that discolors the surface of the object without leaving a notable texture.

Custom Laser Engraving and Marking Solutions by Hai Tech Lasers, Inc.

Our HTL QT fiber laser systems are customized to meet the specific needs of customers. These units start with the following standard components:

  • An 8ʺ Z-axis focus control
  • A 20W fiber laser
  • A 7″x7″ marking area

This combination comprises a design that is flexible enough for most customers depending on their requirements. When this combination does not suffice, we can customize our offerings to include:

  • A rotary axis for marking cylindrical components
  • External X and/or Y axes to increase the effective marking area. We can increase the movement range from 4ʺ up to 18ʺ.
  • Different focal length lenses to increase the laser system’s effective power density or marking area. The lens options include 4″x4″ lenses for higher power density or 12ʺx12ʺ lenses for a larger marking area without external axes.
  • L
    onger Z-axis motion for taller parts
  • Larger marking chambers to accommodate larger parts
  • Specialized fixtures for specific parts with unique shapes
  • The laser system can be integrated into the customer’s production line

 

If customers require anything other than the above points, we discuss their requirements, create custom laser marking solutions to meet their needs, and implement them in the required application.
