There are various kinds of laser marking machine in the market, with different kinds of configuration and with different shapes and appearances. And with different the laser marking machine manufacturers with different region and prices.
As we know, Guangdong province China is the earliest and advanced manufacturer base of various kinds industry products. The Shenzhen city and Dongguan city once were called the “world factory”, it means the products whatever it is consumer products or industrial use products, they exported all over the world from Dongguan and Shenzhen city’s manufacturers and suppliers.
Then the second ware, Zhejiang and Jiangsu province, the third wave Shandong and Hubei province, their manufacturer industry link is just starting building.
For laser marking machine industry, Of course, the best and stable quality supplier and manufacturers are in Guangdong province. Especially in Dongguan city and Shenzhen city, as these cities have accumulated long-term experiences and techniques since 1990, and has integral and mature industry supplier links. So this is the place with best stable products produced and manufactured in China. Maybe the laser marking machine prices are not the lowest, but the quality is really better and durable for long-term use.
Then for laser marking machine suppliers in Zhengjiang, Jiangsu, Shandong or Hubei, their industry is growing fast, but still young, and the industry supplier links are not so mature, this makes them would like to seek short benefits and short business. Some of the laser marking machine suppliers in these areas would like to sell at the low price and without any quality assurance and without after-sales. The customer would alert and be careful of some low price enticement of these areas.
Now, let’s talk about the configuration and shape appearances.
There are various kinds of laser sources and various kinds of brands, makes the laser marking machine have many different kinds configurations.
According to the laser source, there are three categories, fiber laser source, co2 laser source, UV laser sources.
According to laser brands, fiber laser source has Raycus, Jpt, Super laser and Max brands, RF Metal Co2 laser source has coherent, Synrad, Epilog, Acess Rofin brands, Glass co2 laser source has Reci brand, UV laser source has Huaray brand etc.
Usually, the fiber laser marking machine and co2 laser marking machines’ prices are nearly the same in the power 20W~30W range. for fiber laser marking machine, it could be made in a smaller size that is very good whether it is by sea shipping or air/express shipping. So there are two kinds sayings for the fiber laser marking machine according to the shape and appearance, cabinet fiber laser marking machine and desktop (portable) fiber laser marking machine.
If need bigger power, co2 laser marking machine laser with RF metal co2 laser source will be much higher in price and also its performance excellent and durable life is very long; then glass tube laser source co2 laser marking machine’s price is cheaper, but it needs to be replaced the glass laser tube after a period time (4000~12000 hours according to the power of laser) of use.
UV laser source is more complicated, and a UV laser marking machine’s price is very high compared to fiber laser marking machine and co2 laser marking machine.
