STARNBERG, Germany, Aug. 20, 2013 — Rofin-Baasel Lasertech GmbH & Co. AG’s compact laser marking system EasyMark now offers a full-fledged CAD (computer-aided design) suite for its Visual Laser Marker (VLM) software version 5. The CAD extension processes the CAD objects and includes the assigned laser parameter sets. This applies not only to modifications of existing objects, but also to the creation of objects that adopt data sets of adjacent lines. In this way, repetition and postparameterizing of the marking data after layout changes are almost completely eliminated. For circles with a central angle of more than 360° for overlap contours or for rectangles with defined corner radii for retaining the path speeds, the CAD extension provides specific objects tailored to laser processing. When used with the VLM extension, creating new marking layouts is easier. Supplementary programs facilitate positioning and modifying of objects.
