LaserTab Marking System

BRANFORD, Conn., Feb. 1, 2008 -- Lasit USA said its newest generation LaserTab is a compact, desktop fiber-laser marking system with a motorized Z-axis with 15.75-in. travel.

The fully enclosed Class 1 system comes complete with a fiber laser, galvo scan head, computer, and FlyX and FlyCad software that supports both vector and raster engraving of graphics, logos, alphanumerics, barcodes, 2-D data matrix, and serialized numbers on plastics and metals. The software also includes diagnostic capability for remote troubleshooting.

The LaserTab is fully air cooled, service-free, and nearly maintenance-free, Lasit said. A low-voltage power source with increased power efficiency up to 50 percent reduces operating costs, making it a cost effective laser for any business. Its compact footprint makes it a portable marking system designed for harsh industrial environments.

The marking of a small series of parts is much more convenient due to a very useful drawer that allows the load-unloading without having to open the door. The wide cabinet has a manual door with a Class 1 inspection glass that offers a clear view of the product being marked. Movement of the Z-axis can also be carried out with a joystick that can also be used in conjunction with the Smart Focus system.

Smart Focus is a unique system which generates an image for focus control, Lasit said, and is more convenient and accurate than the traditional older technologies based on the convergence of two laser pointers. The operator can easily and instantly find the optimum marking position for both flat surfaces as well as parts with complex geometries. The possibility of using software to control the intensity of the focusing image makes it ideal for use both on components that reflect (chrome plating, polished stainless, and ground surfaces) and on those that absorb (black plastic, dark oxidized aluminum).

A rotary C-axis for marking cylindrical parts can be optionally integrated. The workstation is fully self-contained and both FiberFly and FlyAir lasers can be integrated. It operates with conventional 110 household power source and does not require any external cooling. FlyCAD operating software can be run under modern Windows versions and a simple network connection is all that is needed to control the laser.

Features & Benefits:
  • Class 1 enclosure for safe laser operation with interior light and vacuum exhaust port
  • Manual door with laser safety window for parts viewing
  • Drawer for easy loading/unloading (without opening the door)
  • 150-mm motorized and PC-controlled Z-axis for focus/part height adjustment
  • PC controlled C-axis for cylindrical marking (optional)
  • HP computer with LCD monitor and FlyCAD operating software
A 25-mm stainless steel cable provides a jacket for the fiber cables, eliminating the risk of accidental breakage of the fiber and providing protection against electromagnetic interferences.

The system is available with a full range of lasers including fiber, vanadate, C02, and green. Spot sizes can be customized for applications, with the smallest spot providing micromachining capability of alphanumerics on parts the size of an eyeglass or medical implant screw.

All lasers are available for OEM factory applications for in-line production with on-the-fly applications and built-in I/O for integration.

GLOSSARY
fiber laser
A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
