Metal and plastic marking capabilities strengthened with faster, more powerful equipment
Golden, Colo. - (Dec. 15, 2008) Epilog Laser, the leading producer CO2 and fiber laser engraving, marking and cutting systems today announced the launch of the 50-watt FiberMark, the first flying-optics laser system designed for permanent metal and plastic marking.
Previously available in only 20 or 30-watt models, the new 50-watt FiberMark offers more power and speed in conjunction with an already extremely user-friendly interface and generous marking area.
"The 50-watt FiberMark will result in faster marking speeds for users," said Bob Henry, FiberMark product manager. "Depending upon the material, users can expect to reduce the cycle time of many metals and plastics - in some cases even up to 100 percent."
"Like the 30-watt FiberMark, our extensive testing on the 50-watt machine has produced more color differentiation on various plastics and metals," Henry said. "While different colors can be challenging to produce because you must determine the precise settings for different metals, it definitely can be done."
"Metal and plastic marking requirements are heightening across the board," Henry said. "From the aerospace industry to medical device manufacturing to electronic product design, the demand for marking solutions has never been greater.
The FiberMark was designed specifically for both metal and plastic marking, which regardless of industry can help organizations increase traceability and strengthen identification processes in a convenient and cost effective manner."
