The article reports on the development of the near-infrared lasers for marking. It has two types, the Nd:YAG laser is used for marking at power levels up to 20W and the Nd:YVO that has higher repetition rates and lower thermal drift in output power. It concluded that CW fiber laser is cost-effective, slower plotters and may replace classic YAG/YVO galvo workstations. Fiber laser is more economical than galvanometer systems.
