Fiber laser marking machine has been widely used in various industries for its fast marking speed, long service life, and low barriers to equipment deployment. It has been recognized as a new type of product that may completely replace traditional marking processing methods. In addition, people like it because fiber laser marking machines use longer lifespan than other laser marking machines. Why fiber laser marking machines have a longer service lifespan than equipment deployments such as semiconductor laser marking machines?
Nowadays, the lifespan of a semiconductor laser marking machine is 20,000 hours, and that of a fiber laser marking machine is 100,000 hours. (If calculated on the basis of 8 hours per day, 12500 days can be used, if it is based on 24 hours, 4166.66 days can be used) and only 365 days in one year, this calculation knows that the cost of semiconductors is much higher than that of fiber optics. The cost of self-made, leading many manufacturers choose semiconductor laser marking machine. However, as the time goes by, the threshold current of the laser will grow slowly, resulting in degradation of the semiconductor laser marker laser.
On the other hand, any laser marking machine equipment needs careful maintenance. In fact, the service life of the semiconductor laser marking machine is not fixed. As long as we usually pay attention to maintenance, we can extend its service life. The same is true for fiber laser marking machines. As long as the cleaning and maintenance work are performed regularly, whether it is a semiconductor laser marking machine or a fiber laser marking machine, its service life can be substantially longer in the original.
As more and more manufacturers produce fiber lasers and the skills are becoming more sophisticated, the cost of fiber laser marking machines continues to decline. Currently, most semiconductor laser marking machines are gradually replaced by optical fibers.
