CANYON™ DEEP-ENGRAVING SYSTEM


The Canyon™ Deep-Engraving System is designed to support both circumferential and flat deep-engraving applications or with the rotary motor removed, larger flat deep-engraving requirements.

Fonon Corporation’s Canyon™ Deep-Engraving System is the most flexible industrial-grade marking & engraving system in the 3D material processing industry designed to operate under high-vibration, shock and dust conditions.

With an oversized enclosure, both circumferential marking and flat marking including UDI/UID barcodes, logos, deep-engraving and many other Direct Part Markings are permanent, legible and non-removal. The Canyon™ Deep-Engraving System incorporates Fonon’s proprietary FiberScan™ C3 Software designed to specifically run on Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional.  The Canyon™ unit is configured with a 50W Fiber laser or 100W CO˛ SLAB laser with a vacuum table and blowers to ensure the highest quality mark for applications with depth requirements > 0.003”.

 

The Canyon™ Deep-Engraving System is an industrial-grade, complete turnkey laser-based system incorporating a programmable 8” Z-axis for focal height adjustments with 2 optical X’Y’ axes increasing the range of the marking area. The Canyon™ system incorporates a movable Rotary Indexer, 50W Fiber Laser or 100W Fantom SLAB laser, Scan Head, Industrial PC Controller and Power Supply.  The Canyon™ can be configured with or without the rotary motor.  The key to the highest quality mark is the addition of a vacuum table and directional blowers that continuously remove debris from the processing area to ensure perfect edge quality with straight & smooth walls in unmatched cycle-times.  The Canyon System uses a unique combination of high energy pulses for deeper material penetration designed for high-speed removal with no re-melting of the material while performing enhanced image detailing and finesse deep-engraving.

 

The Canyon system produces a wide variety of Permanent, Legible, 
Non-Removable Marks on a wide variety of materials.

Fiber Laser: 20W-30W-50W Options

Fiber Lasers are a great leap forward in processing all metal and coated soft material applications. Our Fiber Lasers are easily integrated into industrial processes in comparison with conventional lasers due to: 

  • CW or Q-switched Fiber laser options State of the art, Air-cooled, Ytterbium Q-switched Fiber Laser up to 2mJ for marking on virtually any material with high-repetition rate 
  • Excellent TEM00 beam quality (M2 < 1.05) 
  • Exceptional High Reliability with more than 30,000 hours estimated maintenance-free operation 
  • Very high 50,000 hours MTBF (100,000 hours typical on diodes) 
  • Flexible cable-beam delivery system 
  • No water cooling required 
  • Optimized for Direct Part Marking (DPM) applications including UDI/UID Barcoding and 3D Deep Engraving 
  • Red diode pointer for easy application setup 
  • Fiber delivery up to 5 meters 
  • Warranty – 2 years on laser components with 5 years optional program 

Q-Switched Fiber Laser

The Q-switched Fiber Laser is maintenance-free. It delivers an excellent diffraction-limited (TEM00 beam quality M2 < 1.05) laser beam directly to the worksite via a metal sheathed single-mode fiber cable. These compact service-free Fiber Lasers are designed to operate under high-shock, vibration and dust conditions in relatively high humidity across wide operating temperature ranges. State-of-the-art air-cooled Ytterbium lasers have a very high MTBF of 50,000 hours (100,000 hours typical on diodes).  There is no routine replacement of parts or materials scheduling requiring only a low voltage power source.  Fiber-to-Fiber architecture provides a robust, monolithic design with no optics to align, no mechanics to stabilize.  The laser is engineered for optimal power and density providing responsive performance for the most demanding applications.

Fantom CO˛ SLAB Laser: 100W Options

Fonon Corporation’s proprietary Fantom CO˛ SLAB Lasers are a leap forward in laser technology. These CO˛ lasers are easily integrated into industrial processes in comparison with conventional lasers due to:

  • Designed to operate under high shock, vibration & dust conditions
  • Sealed off and RF Excited CO˛ SLAB laser
  • CW or Pulsed CO˛ laser options
  • Excellent TEM00 beam quality (M2 < 1.2)
  • Exceptional Reliability with more than 10,000 hours maintenance-free operation 
  • Sealed dust-proof design
  • No need for gas refill during the warranty period
  • Flexible cable-beam delivery system
  • No water cooling required
  • Optimized for Direct Part Marking (DPM) applications including UID/UDI barcoding and engraving
  • Red diode pointer for easy application setup (Optional)
  • Warranty – 2 years on laser components with 5 years optional program.

Fantom F100 CO˛ SLAB Laser

Fantom F100 CO˛ Slab Laser is completely sealed requiring no gas connections producing a beam that processes material at an average power of 100W respectively. This CO˛ laser provides a low M2 (<1.2), high quality beam that allows smaller focus spot sizes and incorporates Fonon  Technologies’ proprietary fast-rising square wave pulsing technology with repetition rates up to 25 kHz with an output wavelength of 10.6 microns. 

Scanning Head

The Scan Head is designed to quickly and precisely deflect and position the laser beam.  Small spot sizes are achieved along with large image fields. Very stable operating conditions as well as high long-term stability are provided by air cooling of the entrance aperture, electronics, and galvanometer scanners and supplemented by air cooling of the deflection mirrors. The compact housing is dust proof and water spray resistant.

 

DSP Control Board

The PC Interface DSP Control Board provides synchronous, interference -resistant control of the scan system and laser in real time. A high performance signal processor and the supplied DLL simplify programming under Windows. Software instructions are loaded alternately in two list buffers processed by the DSP and output as 16-bit control signals every 10µs to the scan system.

The processor automatically performs vital steps such as micro-vectorization and image field correction. Laser control is synchronized with the scanner movements.

 

Precise, Maintenance Free Z-Axis Controller 

The Z-Axis Controller with an 8” vertical capability accommodates a variety of field replaceable lenses. Made of stainless-steel construction with contact free home and positioning sensor along with a life lubricated preloaded linear slide with dust protected way cover.
