At present, marking products has become an indispensable process in manufacturing. Therefore, more and more companies are beginning to buy marking equipment, and then they will feel confused, to buy Laser marking machine or still use silk screen marking equipment? For cost saving, most companies choose to purchase silk screen printing equipment. From the price of equipment, screen printing equipment is indeed cheaper, but it is really true? Let us take a look at the following:
Screen printing refers to the use of a silk screen as a substrate, and through the photosensitive plate making method, making a silk screen printing plate with graphics and texts. Silk screen printing consists of five major elements, screen plate, squeegee, printing ink, press bed, and substrate. It uses the basic principle that the ink can pass through the graphics and texts' mesh of silk screen printing plate, and the ink can not pass through the portion of mesh without graphics and texts. When printing, the ink is poured into one end of the screen printing plate, and a certain pressure is applied to the ink portion on the screen printing plate by the squeegee, and at the same time, it is moved to the other end of the screen printing plate at a constant speed, the ink is squeezed from the mesh of the graphics and texts onto the substrate by the squeegee while moving.
The laser marking machine uses laser beam to mark on the surface of various materials with permanent marks. The marking is to expose deep substance by evaporation of surface substance, or to engrave traces by chemical and physical changes of surface materials caused by laser energy, or to burn off some substances by laser energy to show the desired pattern and text to be etched.
The difference between a screen printer and a laser marking machine is:
1. The difference in price, the approximate price of screen printing machine is between 20,000CNY and 40,000CNY. At the same time, after purchase it needs to buy consumables such as ink. The price of laser marking machine is between 30,000CNY and 80,000CNY(price varies according to configuration), there is almost no consumables cost after purchase.
2. During the process of using, the screen printing machine needs to make a template by manual operation which is troublesome, at the same time, after use, it is not inconvenient to clean. While the laser marking machine, as long as the typesetting is ready on the computer, can automatically mark or engrave, which is convenient and quick.
3. Screen printing can only be used for relatively flat product, if it has some bumps, then it is not suitable completely. But the laser marking machine can mark on the round, uneven, irregular surface, with very good marking effect.
Shenzhen Sunlaser's laser marking machine has the characteristics of high marking precision, no contact on the surface of processed articles, durable and not-erasable effect, high processing efficiency, anti-counterfeiting, etc. It can engrave a variety of non-metallic materials, such as garment accessories, pharmaceutical packaging, wine packaging, architectural ceramics, beverage packaging, fabric cutting, rubber products, casing nameplates, craft gifts, electronic components, leather.
