Process: Laser Marking
Detailed Application View
The canisters were marked using the 20 watt q-switched ytterbium fiber laser, along with a 160 mm focal length lens. In order to get the marks along the outside diameter of the parts, each part was held in a fixture which allowed for manual rotation. Each part was turned by hand in the fixture, then placed on each of it’s ends to complete the marking in all requested areas. The logo had a cycle time of 0.94 seconds each, two were marked, the text between both logos had a cycle time of 0.63 seconds. On the ends, the “ Inlet ” side had a cycle time of 1.53 seconds, while the “ Outlet ” side had a cycle time of 1.19 seconds. Each mark used two passes, this was done to add depth to the etch. The total cycle time just for laser marking the parts was 5.23 seconds.
Recommended Laser Systems: Fiber Laser Engraving Machine
Fiber Tower™ Series is the new generation of Fiber Laser Material Processing Systems for Direct Parts Marking, UID Marking (Unique Identifier), and Deep Engraving. It is the most advanced, compact, industrial grade, mid size, Fiber Laser Engraving Machine available on the market. Fiber Tower™ series employs the new generation of solid state Ytterbium fiber laser systems of near infrared spectral range (1060-1080nm) with a unique combination of high peak power, ideal beam quality, fiber delivery and highest electro-optical wall-plug efficiency
These laser machines possess a reliability that is unmatched by any other kind of solid state or gas laser systems. Wide selectivity of operating wavelengths, ultra-low amplitude noise, high stability and ultra-long pump diode lifetime complete an impressive list of advantages of these modern fiber laser systems. Hand Held Laser Marking System
The Hand Held Fiber Laser is a safe, state-of-the-art, Direct Parts Marking (DPM) alternative for Nd:YAG and Nd:YVO4 lasers (Lamp-pumped, Side-pumped Diode, and End-Pumped Diode). Components include a Q-Switched Ytterbium Fiber Laser with Scan Head, Industrial PC Controller, Power Supply, and Marking Software.
Direct Parts Marking, UID Marking, Date Codes, Bar Codes, Time Stamps and all other permanent marks on all non-movable parts and equipment for traceability and Code Compliance purposes. Fiber Laser Marking Kit
The i-Series Fiber Laser Marking Kit was specifically designed for maintenance-free OEM applications. It delivers a diffraction limited (M2<1.05) laser beam directly to the worksite via a metal sheathed single mode fiber cable.
These compact service-free lasers are designed to operate under high shock, vibration and dust conditions, with relatively high humidity and temperatures. They do not require routine replacement parts or materials. Wall-plug efficiencies up to 50% result in a compact size, reduced utilities, and trouble-free air cooling.
Fiber-to-fiber architecture means a robust, monolithic design with no optics to align or maintain, no mechanics to stabilize, and with the focusable power and high power densities needed for the most demanding applications. One cable connection makes it easy to integrate into any laser marking and engraving system.
