Laser Marker Selection Points [Price]
The price of a laser marker is determined by two major points.
Point 1: Laser Output
Generally speaking, the price of a laser marker is proportional to the laser output level.
Higher laser output allows for shorter marking times and deeper engravings. Results also vary depending on the material being marked, so the optimal output differs from one application to another.
Point 2: Laser Light Wavelength
Generally speaking, the price of a laser marker is inversely proportional to the wavelength of its laser light.
Laser Light Wavelength
As the laser wavelength gets shorter, contrast is improved and product damage can be reduced. Results also vary depending on the material being marked, so the optimal wavelength differs from one application to another.
