If your company uses a marking machine to create a logo, name or serial number, there may be a way to use it more effectively. Here at KT Marking, we strive to offer an array of marking applications and industries to give you the highest quality marking. We have a wide range of laser marking machines and dot peen marking machines, as well as customized marking solutions for industrial and plastic parts marking. However, before making a decision on which product will suit your needs, it may help to understand the difference between a fiber laser marking machine and a YAG laser machine.
Fiber laser marking machines
If you choose a fiber laser machine, you will be able to use a high accuracy fiber laser. It utilizes an air cooling system for maintenance-free operations. It can also be used for marking all-metal materials, such as stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and
iron, and it even has the capability to mark a few compact non-metal materials.
Fiber laser marking machines also have a stable output laser power that is 10 watts, a high speed galvo scanner, and a long life span. Furthermore, it is convenient, flexible and eco-friendly—it even includes an air cooling system along with free maintenance. It is characterized by its compact structure and it is easy to operate. You will be able to customize it as well.
Our KT-LF series fiber laser marking systems can be used in various metals and plastics such as PP, PE, ceramic, and rubber (just to name a few). It is versatile and can work in various industries, such as automobile parts, metal processing, plastic translucent keys and electronic parts.
Fiber laser machines generate a laser beam using a seed laser, and they amplify it in specially designed glass fibers. They are extremely compact, and the technology makes them less vulnerable to misalignment and adjustment problems that you might see in a YAG laser marking machine.
YAG laser marking machines
Crystal lasers, or YAG laser markers, belong to the solid-state lasers and are pumped by diodes. They are suitable for marking all metals and plastics. These laser types include expensive pump diodes, which wear parts. They must be replaced after roughly 8,000 to 15,000 laser hours, and the crystal itself has a shorter service life than a fiber laser.
However, our KT-LY75 YAG metal laser marking system uses a semiconductor laser diode. It will offer you a fast marking speed as well as high accuracy. It can mark directly on all metals, alloys, metal oxides, and plastic at very high speeds. It has a compact design and can be installed anywhere.
YAG lasers have excellent beam quality, stability and higher electrical wall plug energy efficiency. However, they are considered less efficient than fiber lasers in terms of power input and wattage output. They have a wall plug efficiency of 1.530 percent.
We, at KT Marking provide the best user experience by combining design and manufacturing into one comprehensive and seamless system. Whether you decide on a YAG laser system or a fiber system, your marking machine will be suitable for metal marking.
