Lasers marking on plastic
The most common lasers for plastics applications are the famous UV laser, the FlyPeak green wave laser by LASIT and the traditional Green light laser with fiber optic source. In most cases, the use of a MOPA laser or variable pulse laser is recommended: thanks to pulse duration control, this laser ensures maximum performance on more difficult applications.
Laser technicians carry out tests to see which laser is best for achieving the desired result on specific plastics. Usually, the parameters initially used are those listed below. Based on the results of the first tests, it is possible to identify those best suited to the specific processing desired.
