Sep 24 08 - Lasit USA has introduced its newest generation CompactMark, a multi-axis rugged, industrial laser marking workstation with a wide range of features offering versatility and increased production. The system is available with Fiber, Nd:Yag, YV04, and CO2 lasers.
When marking cylindrical parts or parts with varying angles and different sides, the rotating scan head can be employed to mark large trays rather than individual parts. Multiple lines of text as well as logos can be wrapped 140 degrees around the circumference of the parts or placed on different heights or angles without moving the parts. It can be fully programmable to mark multiple sides, curved surfaces, and different locations without re-fixturing the parts.
The CompactMark from Lasit USA can also be equipped with an optional fully automatic W axis (rotary indexer) to minimize any downtime in changing over from the table to the rotary indexer.
The fully enclosed rigid welded all steel Class One system with pneumatic doors is ideal for marking metals, plastics and many organic materials. Fully air-cooled with a small footprint, reliable fiber lasers can offer over 100,000 hours MTBF with no costly replacement consumables.
The XYZ control is optimized through the use of a smooth joystick. Together with the flexible preview features and the SmartFocus, the system is designed for ease of use in positioning various single parts. The system boasts a full 19 x 15 inch pallet that provides optimal throughput when marking multiple parts.
Custom expanded enclosures are also available. The automatic z axis allows for height clearance up to 15 ¾ inches. The system can be customized with 5 axes and additional features including W Axis, Pick and Place, Palletized Shuttles, Conveyors, and Pneumatic Lifts as well as an expanded work are for increasing productivity to mark large trays or pallets of parts.
When cylindrical marks are required, this system can be equipped with an optional fully automatic W axis (rotary indexer) to minimize any downtime in changing over from the table to the rotary indexer.
Software provides for marking alpha-numeric text, bar codes, 2 D data matrix, graphics, logos, serialization as well as on the fly processing with encoder feedback. Materials such as Steel, Aluminum, Titanium, Annodized Aluminum, Brass, Silver, Gold and other coated metals, and as well as plastics can be marked with our systems.
The rigid welded steel body provides precision machining, which allows for repeatable positioning as well as precise marking when using additional fixtures to support the parts. The motors are all servo driven with 2048 lines per revolution and an integrated encoder, which prevents marking the parts in the wrong position.
Lasit USA offers the CompactMark with a full range of lasers:
--20, 30, 50, 100, 200 Watt FiberFly
--FlyAir 2-15 Watts YV04
--Fly 50 or 70 Watts
--C02: 10- 30 Watts
