Laser Technology Refined
Application can fully or partially replace the traditional peening, roll stamping, grooving, embossing, stippling, scribing, sand blasting, and chemical etching, inkjet, printing process.
It provides the solution of regulation compliant high-quality marking and deep engraving process, helping the equipment owner leverage capital investment into good revenue generation.
Versatile Laser Machines
With this laser marking and engraving technology, users can resolve issue of UDI compliance, meeting sterile requirements and remain permanent and high consistent quality of laser mark. Users can also select automatic loading and unloading sub-system, which significantly saves setup time and the labor cost.
Pharmaceutical Tablet Marking and Drilling
Versatile pharmaceutical laser drilling and marking system
Features of the System Include
Maintenance Free Laser Source
Our laser sources are maintenance free, requiring no consumables or costly replacement parts.
A fume extraction system is needed for keeping the work area clear of particulates and harmful fumes.
Large Scanning Field Lenses
Our standard lens field sizes are 4″, 7″, and 12″ (11.75″). Each serving a specific function to achieve different results. Need a custom solution, contact us today.
Customized Beam Delivery Engineering
Our engineers and software developers are able to customize the beam delivery for specific applications.
Software Upgrade Options
Our software suite has many modules available for extended the capabilities of the laser. Upgrade options include
XYZR Multi-Axis Control
Our Laser Marking Studio™ software is capable of interfacing with multiple axis configurations. The software has built-in axis controls for moving parts under the laser or for moving the laser scanhead above the parts.
Position the laser scanhead directly above parts using our industrial XYZ linear robots. Greatly increasing the marking area and angle of marking.
XYZ Linear Robot Option
This option includes an industrial multi-axis linear robot gantry system for positioning the laser scanhead above different areas in the lase field. Mark or engrave multiple parts without needing to reload the machine constantly. The enlarged workspace, work area, and lase area allows users to mark and engrave large objects.
6-Jointed Robot Integration
Part Holding and Moving
Integrate 6-jointed robots into the laser process for holding and moving parts into the lase field. Our collaborative robots (cobots) are able to be quickly programmed with new tasks for holding different parts.
Laser Scanhead on a Robot Arm
We can attach a laser scanhead to the end of our 6-jointed robot arm for customers needing this type of configuration.
Multi-position Rotary Dial Workstations
Our rotary dial workstation option is for high production, continual part marking or engraving. Parts and fixtures are placed on a rotating fixture plate divided into sections. Parts are loaded into the front and then rotate into marking position inside the machine. Our dial workstations come in 3 standard table sizes: 28″ 2-position, 36″ and 48″ 4-position. Custom sizing and configurations available upon request.
Conveyors and Pneumatic Grippers
Our engineering and software departments are able to configure our proprietary software to accept I/O signals from sensors to initiate the movement of conveyors, fire the laser, and for moving parts with pick and place pneumatic grippers.
Machine Vision Systems
Vision systems are used for positioning the engraving/marking area directly onto the workpiece using a camera and mirror system. These systems can also be used for verifying markings and for automatic positioning of the marking area using contrasting features. This configuration is ideal for high production output and for minimizing operator involvement.
Harsh Environment Protection
If your production environment is considered a harsh environment we recommend purchasing our harsh environment protection configuration to ensure all computer and laser components are safe from outside contaminates. These components are enclosed in a filtered air-conditioned box to keep dust and oil particles from damaging the system.
I/O Software Integration
Our software department is able to integrate 3rd party I/O interfaces for custom control. Contact us to discuss your needs
