Process: Laser Marking
Detailed Application View
The parts were marked with a 20 watt q-switched ytterbium fiber laser and 254 mm focal length lens. The 254mm focal length lens has a working distance of 296mm from lens to part. The parts were spread across the length of the field to demonstrate the capabilities of both the 254mm lens and the laser. Due to the lack of proper fixturing the parts were placed at the top, middle and bottom of the field. The parts were placed near the edges of the field to show that there was no distortion when marking near the limits of the marking field. The parts were marked with two sets of fonts. One font was a narrow font the other was a bolder font. This was done just to provide different options for visibility and contrast.
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. 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.
