FiberScan C3™ Software (MarkStar™ Professional Only)

FiberScan C3™ software is a high performance,  multi-threaded laser marking solution designed to specifically run on Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional. The user-friendly software entails a fully integrated driver, remote diagnostic capabilities for worldwide support and multiple hardware interfaces for the ability to execute any Fiber Laser marking system. File links to several internal databases make the FiberScan C3™ program flexible and powerful.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
These databases include a materials application system and a fixture database. The materials application system allows a user to define a laser process, give the process a unique name and subsequently link the process to graphic programs. A process can include multiple passes using different values for power, frequency and speed on each laser pass.  The database can contain and manage many thousands of different process ‘recipes’.

The fixture database allows the user to control fixture offsets
and define step and repeat processes.  Just like the material database, any WLJ job can use any fixture defined in the fixture database. The link sallow all appropriate graphic and process information to be automatically loaded when the operator selects the lasing file.  At any time the operator can change the links, for example a lasing job that is normally marked on stainless steel, can be marked on brass by selecting the brass process file prior to executing the job program file. Operators don’t have the need to remember fonts and logos for a particular job because FiberScan C3™ automatically performs all required graphic loading.  FiberScan C3™ does not require users to learn any programming languages or special codes and provides all of the flexible and graphic controls that users are accustomed to such as radial marking, aspect control, character spacing, angular rotations and full justification.
