Laser marking workstation

Miyachi America has debuted its LMWS laser marking workstation designed for benchtop operation.

Monrovia, CA - Miyachi America has debuted its LMWS laser marking workstation designed for benchtop operation. An update to the company's LMW2020 and LMW2030 laser marking workstations, the LMWS model features improved functionality, narrow width for lean manufacturing, and CDRH Class 1 safety, according to the company.

The workstation can perform laser marking on metals, ceramics, and many plastics, and also has cutting, drilling, and welding capabilities. Its uses include low-volume production and research and development environments in the automotive, medical, aerospace, electronic components, and battery industries.

Standard models of the workstation are powered by the company's 10 to 50W fiber laser markers. A manual door opens vertically for 180-degree access to parts and tooling, while a large viewing window allows for visual process monitoring.

Inside the enclosure, the base model has a motorized Z that can be jogged to location by a rotary knob on the front panel. As an upgrade, this can be made to be a programmable axis. With either option, the Z-axis can be adjusted to keep the focus on the part height. A rotary axis can also be added for marking around cylindrical parts. The workstation is equipped with F 100, 160, and 254 lenses for marking various parts and sizes. The fume extraction port with flexible tubing enables quick adjustment to different parts.
