Portable Desktop Fiber Laser Marking System with Smart Focus Joystick, Pull-Out Drawer and Enlarged Enclosure
Branford, CT -October 29, 2008 - Lasit USA proudly introduces its newest LaserTab®, a compact, desktop Fiber laser marking system with a motorized Z axis with 15 ¾ inch travel. The fully enclosed Class One system comes complete with a fiber laser, galvo scan head, computer, and FlyX® and FlyCad® software that supports both vector and raster engraving of graphics, logos, alpha-numerics, barcodes, 2D Data Matrix, and serialized numbers on plastics and metals. The software also includes diagnostic capability for remote troubleshooting.
Tooling area starts at 12 x 16 inches and larger. Additional side enclosures or expanded cavities can be added for any size longer or larger parts.
Fully air cooled, with a compact footprint, service-free, and the highest reliability (over 100,000 hours MTBF) virtually eliminates the need for any maintenance. A low voltage power source with increased power efficiency up to 50% reduces operating costs, making this a cost effective laser for any business.
The motorized Z axis with encoder provides for marking of components varying in thickness from 0 to 150mm. The marking of a small series of parts is much more convenient due to a pull-out drawer that allows the load-unloading without having to open the door. The wide cabinet has a manual door with a Class I inspection glass that offers a clear view of the product being marked. Movement of the Z axis can also be carried out effortlessly with a joystick and instant Smart Focus system. The joystick allows for instant and simple focus. The Smart Focus isaunique system, which generates an image for focus control. This system is much more convenient and accurate than the traditional older technologies based on the convergence of two laser pointers.
"The operator can easily and instantly find the optimum marking position for both flat surfaces as well as parts with complex geometries. The possibility of using software to control the intensity of the focusing image makes it ideal for use both on components that reflect (chrome plating, polished stainless, brass, and ground surfaces) and on those that absorb (black plastic, dark oxidized aluminum)," said Robin Barbero, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Lasit USA. A rotary C axis for marking of cylindrical parts, can be optionally integrated. This workstation is fully self contained and any of our Fiber, C02, YV04, or Nd:Yag lasers can be integrated. It operates with conventional 110 household power source and does not require any external cooling. FlyCAD operating software can be run under modern Windows versions and a simple network connection is all that is needed to control the Laser.
A 25 mm stainless steel cable provides a jacket for the fiber cables, eliminating the risk of accidental breakage of the fiber and providing protection against electromagnetic interferences.
High speed and accuracy make the Lasit marking system the ideal laser for engraving and marking coated and uncoated materials such as brass, titanium, stainless steel, chrome, carbide, nickel, aluminum, plastics, graphite, marble, rubber, ceramics, textiles, paper, leather and other materials.
