Laser Marking Range

Description

A new laser marking range range uses a Ytterbium Doped Fiber source designed by SIC Marking, a pulsed operating mode (30 to 60 kHz), a wavelength of 1064 nm and an average power of 20W (available in 30 and 50W).

This range meets 80% of applications needs at a much lower cost and it allows a great marking quality on a large number of materials (steel, aluminum, stainless steel, plastics, etc.) and adapts to degraded surface finishes.

 

Integrated lasers have been developed around two laser sources, a standard easy version and a HD one, to which are added different options. These features allow to meet every specific need immediately or later on, depending on the customer´s production line evolution.



In its standard EASY version, this laser range offers the best quality / price ratio on the market and allows precise marking at high speeds. The HD version (pulse duration from 2 ns to 200 ns) provides better marking contrasts on metals, especially aluminum and some plastics. This HD marking head also enables to solve cycle time issues by adjusting the laser´s pulse duration.

 

The first option is 3D marking. It consists of a liquid lens which can mark complex parts (cylinders, inclined planes...) or multi-level parts (up to 80 mm difference in altitude).

 

Customers can also choose an integrated vision system which includes a high-resolution camera built into the marking head. This function allows to read immediately one or two 2D codes immediately after marking. There is no movement between operations. As the reading is done in the same axis, there is no image distortion. 2D code, QR-Code and Datamatrix markings are checked according to the standards ISO 29158, ISO 15415, and ISO 9132.

 

Finally, the laser range also offers the possibility to communicate via Profibus, Profinet and Ethernet / IP field buses.



SIC Marking´s standard laser range is available with marking windows of 60 x 60 mm, 100 x 100 mm and 170 x 170 mm and applies to alphanumeric, datamatrix, barcodes, logos, VIN and QR codes marking. The marking head is easy to integrate on all production lines and can be connected to an industrial network without any additional hardware via digital I/O, Ethernet TCP/IP and RS232.

 

SIC Marking´s laser systems operate in standalone mode (without PC) and can communicate directly with a PLC on a production line. Creation and configuration of marking files is done on a PC using SIC Laser Advanced software.

 

With 300 employees, a turnover of 50m € and a worldwide presence in more than 50 countries including 9 locations, SIC Marking is established as one of the world´s leader in marking and traceability solutions for industrial components.
