Laser engraving processing, also known as laser processing, is one of the four great inventions of mankind in the 20th century. It has been widely used in industry, military, scientific research and daily life. The 21st century claims that mankind has entered the age of optoelectronics. The further widespread application of laser technology as energy photoelectrons will greatly change human production and life.

Because the laser engraving beam has four special laser engraving processability properties: high brightness, high directionality, high monochromaticity and high coherence, it brings some laser engraving processing characteristics that other processing methods do not have. Because it is non-contact processing, there is no direct impact on the material, so there is no mechanical deformation; there is no “tool” wear during the laser engraving process, and no “cutting force” acts on the material; during the laser engraving process, the energy density of the laser engraving beam is high , the processing speed is fast, and it is local processing, which has no or minimal impact on the non-laser irradiated parts.

Today I will mainly talk about how laser engraving technology is applied in prototype manufacturing scenarios:

  1. Applied to areas where light transmission is required on the product surface.
    Transparent materials are used when making prototypes, and after processing is completed. Spray paint on the surface, and then use laser engraving to remove the paint from the areas that need light transmission. The laser engraving light transmission process is used for the digital key areas of our commonly used function machines.
  2. Our commonly used aluminum alloy, zinc alloy, and plastic materials can have laser engraving LOGOs or numbers on their surfaces. Generally, the depth of laser engraving is 0.05MM. The effect of laser engraving is generally faster than silk screen printing. The main reason is that it will not fade. Generally, metal only needs Not all colorful logos will be processed by laser engraving.
