Laser source is the core component of the laser machine. Different laser sources can generate different laser beams to cut different materials. When you buy a fiber laser marking machine, you will find that there are many brands that provide different fiber laser sources, and the price of each brand is different, so which is the most affordable fiber laser source, what is the difference between them.
ByteLaser listed the most used fiber laser brand on the market: Raycus, Max, JPT and IPG Fiber Laser Source. Let us see what is the difference between them and which one should you choose.
Raycus is a fiber laser brand from China. The working life of Raycus fiber laser is 100,000 hours. Pulserepetition rate is 20-80khz and low frequency engraving and marking is not possible. The marking accuracy is 10um. Its main advantages are stability and low price, but it maybe not provide too high quality laser.

Compared with other Q-switched lasers, the pulse frequency and pulse width of MOPA fiber lasers are independently controllable. Through the adjustment and collocation of two laser parameters, a constant high peak power output can be achieved and it can be applied to a wider range of marking applications. Mopa laser can also mark color on stainless steel.
