What is Galvo UV Laser?

The laser marking system equipped with galvanometer laser head and UV laser resonator. As its name implies, UV Galvo lasers use ultraviolet light to mark different materials; during the process the surface is not heated by the UV light in the same way Fiber or CO2 lasers do.

UV LASER COMMON APPLICATIONS: 

  • Mark: some metals
  • Mark and engrave: all plastics
  • Mark: all glass
  • Mark and engrave: some stones
  • Mark: paper
  • Mark and engrave: leather
  • Mark: fruits
  • Mark: wood
  • Mark: ceramic
  • Mark: garments
  • And other materials, for more information consult us. 

PLASTIC APPLICATIONS: UV Galvo laser can mark clearly and with high precision any plastic surface and other materials that have an adverse reaction with heat.


METAL APPLICATIONS: Just like with plastics, UV Galvo lasers can engrave and mark metals; however we do not recommend its use when working with metals coated with paint or that are highly reflective.

GLASS APPLICATIONS: As it only affects the surface of the materials, UV-laser technology is ideal for marking delicate materials like silicone, glass or crystals. You can obtain delicate and brilliant effects when marking these materials while keeping the smoothness of the surface.


FABRIC/GARMENTS APPLICATIONS: Laser engraving on fabrics is a permanent trace, ideal for marking writings, logos or indications. UV laser systems can create drawings, logos, alphanumeric texts with a very high definition.


WOOD APPLICATIONS: UV lasers can mark different wooden surfaces. The result vary from CO2 laser as UV laser marking is not very deep, however it can provide light and beautiful marking results on wooden products. You can use UV Galvo laser to mark wooden materials like Mahogany, Oak, Maple, Cherry, Pine tree, Cedar, MDF, Vulcanized fiber, among others.


PAPER/CARDBOARD APPLICATIONS: UV rays generate a chemical reaction on the material marking its surface, that is why you can obtain a white-colored finish when marking cardboard surfaces, or if you want to mark a black cardboard, you would still get a clear contrast result.
