    Default Marking lots of anodized parts/which machine?

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to first say that I know very little about lasers but very knowledgeable around CnC machines.

    We are looking for a machine that will strictly be marking anodized aluminum with our company logo and such. We are looking to mark lots of parts and trying to not only find a fast machine but one that will do a decent amount of parts at one time. I think we want something that is 24x36" at minimum. I have been told that CO2 would be the way to go and not to get anything over a 80W. Just trying to learn a little more about what machines i should be looking at for our particular situation/need. Thank you for any help you may offer.

    You need a gantry fiber laser machine. All majo brands make them. Here are the top 3 options:

    - Epilog Fusion Pro 48
    - Trotec Speedy 360 Flexx
    - GCC S290LS

    It may be a good idea to add a camera for precise positioning of the graphics.

    If the cycle time is very important for you check the option for a gantry machine equipped with a galvo head. The speed and the engraving quality will be significantly better. It will have to be a custom made machine. Most likely you will have to import it from China.

    Fiber laser are more expensie than co2 and i think a co2 laser will do same work , but slower , the main benefit it is more cheap .

    We mark on anodized aluminum all the time with our mopa laser but the marking area is small and the speed is slow too.

    First, I'll say I don't know anything about lasers, but I watched this video recently and it may offer an alternative. There is a link to the company that makes the hardware (in Poland). Good luck with your search.
