In marking metal and plastic,There is a setting parameter range for reference to test ,Speed 100-2000 adjustable,Power 30-80 adjustable,Frequency 5-30. Depends on different materials and the marking effects you want so for a new operator may need conduct dozens of trials to know the ideal marking parameters for each material and even some experienced engineers have to try several times.
Here have a brief introduction about laser marking frequency,power,speed and the hatch function . These four settings will affect the marking result in order to get a good laser marking result we need to adjust the speed power and frequency.
1.) In laser marking machine,Marking frequency stands for the times of laser pulse per unit time is called the marking frequency.It is easy to understand.For example, When the value of marking frequency is high, the laser spot is dense ,on the contrary if the marking frequency value is low then the laser spot is parse.
2.) Marking speed refers to the moving speed of the laser cutting machine. Here this speed is the speed that can be adjusted in the parameters for marking.The overall marking time is not only affected by marking speed,but also by the marking depth, marking area and other factors.The higher speed you set,The faster marking speed you get.
- ) Marking power, in the parameter setting, the power is adjusted by percentage, and the output power from 0% to 100% can be adjusted. Usually the default power is 50%.Higher laser power you set,the stronger laser output energy you get and it is easier to marking depth. You need to set the laser power according to your actual requirement.Because the laser output energy is too strong,It will do more affect to the material. As long as the laser power can reach your marking expectations then no need to set very high laser power,otherwise long time high power marking will do damage to the laser generator and affects its life span.
4.) “Hatch” is used to force EZCAD to calculate the hatch fills for the current objects. The object to be filled must be closed curve, and if you choose many objects to fill, these figures can be objects nested mutually. Any two objects may not have intersectant parts .Line Space setting is the most frequent tool we use, line space is the space between two hatch lines .
