Keyence, Wood Cliff Lake, NJ, has introduced its new 3-axis MD-F3000 fiber laser marker, which delivers 30 W of power directly on the target surface, ensuring that dense, hard metals can be permanently marked and etched in a matter of milliseconds.
The ultra-small head allows for a small footprint, allowing for fast, easy installation in tight spaces. The MD-F’s head has a fan-less design and is completely sealed from dirt and dust, making it good for metal processing and other harsh industrial environments. This provides greater stability, reduced maintenance, increased productivity and more mounting possibilities. Together with newly developed software, the MD-F offers a combination of marking quality, speed and ease of operation to meet stringent marking requirements.
The MD-F3000 Series also incorporates Keyence’s unique 3-axis beam control system that debuted in the ML-Z9500 and MD-V9900 Series markers. The 3-axis design ensures that the MD-F provides high quality, distortion-free marking across the full 300mm x 300mm area without the need for costly mechanisms to index the target or marking head.
Keyence’s Marking Builder-2 Software has also been upgraded with a new Quality Function which significantly reduces setup time. The Quality Function blends all of the advanced parameters entailed with creating high quality marks at high speed into one set of options, making it quick and easy to find the right settings to create the required mark in the desired time.
