We need to use different types of machines for different materials marking/engraving/etching. The laser marking machine is suitable for engraving and marking on all materials. So, for example, the co2 laser engraver is ideal for non-metal materials like wood, cloth, acrylic, paper, plastic, leather, PVC, etc. In contrast, a fiber laser marking machine is suitable for metal materials such as aluminum, brass, gold, silver, alumina, stainless steel, galvanized sheet, zinc alloy. Besides these two kinds, there are also UV laser marking machines, which can engrave on materials such as glass, PVC, rubber, plastic, aluminum, copper, gold, and silver.

Let's dive in.

The fiber laser marking machine plays a vital role in the current ceramic processing field. It provides a fast-processing solution for the present ceramic marking. For some trademarks, logos, dates, barcodes, or patterns and numbers need to be engraved on ceramics; the laser marking machine can achieve a stunning marking effect and give ceramic products a different fashion charm. And the marking effect is long-lasting, wear-resistant, non-fading, and clear, making the ceramic items more favored by the clients.

You might be wondering whether the laser etching machine can engrave on plexiglass acrylic? Yes, of course. Acrylic is widely used in many fields, such as LED lightboxes, bathroom facilities, handicrafts, cosmetics, street lampshades, furniture, lighting, signage, trophy, etc.


The laser marking machine is ideal for engraving logo trademarks, text, patterns, QR codes, serial numbers, symbols on acrylic products, and even graphics are also possible. The laser marking machine has the benefits of fast working rate, high efficiency, long lifespan, simple operation, and zero consumables. It only needs to be powered on. We could modify the patterns and texts as per the needs, and the marked LOGO trademark pattern has long-term, non-fading, and non-falling features, which can save labor and protect the environment.

Can Fiber Laser Engrave Glass?

It is challenging to engrave on the glass as it is a fragile material. Therefore, the application of UV laser marking machine came out. UV laser marking is cold processing, with high beam quality, tiny spots, and a small heat-generating area, which greatly ensures the processing quality. The processing advantages of this model make it a new favorite in the glass product marking industry, and it is listed as a commonly used processing tool in various wine glasses, craft gifts, and other industries.

In the wood engraving industry, laser marking machines are usually used to draw patterns on musical instruments such as guitars, basses, violins, etc. 10W to 100W is enough for simple marking on wood. But a higher power Co2 laser engraver is necessary if you want to engrave large-format and deep patterns on the wood. Nowadays, the CO2 laser marking machine is a time-saving, cost-saving, and high-quality production option for wood items engraving. It can complete many complex jobs of wood product carving and carve lifelike patterns!

Metal Materials

The fiber laser engraver is capable of engraving on metal materials, such as aluminum, brass, gold, silver, alumina, stainless steel, galvanized sheet. Take stainless steel as an example. There are two modes of marking on stainless steel; one is ordinary marking, the other is color marking. 

Except for typical marking, Mopa fiber laser engraver can do color marking on SS and black marking on aluminum oxide.

Many customers use EagleTec fiber laser marking machines to mark on the rubber products, such as rubber watches, tires, seals, etc. The laser marking machine can quickly process on the surface of rubber products and maintain the material's inherent surface characteristics. "Non-contact" processing will not damage the integrity of the rubber part surface. The information you marked is durable and will not fade and blur. 


PET is widely used in modern industry because it has the advantages of high strength, good transparency, non-toxic, anti-penetration, lightweight, and high production efficiency. It is usually used to make computer floppy disks, metal coatings, photosensitive films, etc. It can also be used to make edible oil bottles, condiment bottles, cosmetic bottles, and other packaging materials.


Fiber laser marking machine is broadly applied in etching production date, barcode, pattern, QR code, and other information on products made of PET. Check out the QR code laser engraving machine if you are interested. 


The laser marking machine's high efficiency, good marking quality, long life, and low maintenance, coupled with its flexible marking methods, make it widely used in all walks of life.
