Laser marking systems are versatile, high-speed production tools that adopt a laser beam to mark a label. These devices are available in a variety of styles to fit a variety of production needs, including flat, curved, and multi-directional surfaces. To achieve optimal results, these machines use mirror galvanometers to scan the beam and adjust its wattage on Z axis to ensure optimal laser placement and speed. For high-speed repetitive applications, open-environment systems are a great choice.
Although a laser marking system may cost more initially, its operating and maintenance costs are significantly lower than those of other laser-marking systems. This is because lasers have no moving parts and do not require consumables, making them highly reliable. Furthermore, they offer high repeatability and a consistent quality of marking over time. Datalogic solutions are also competitively priced per watt. Additionally, a laser marking system can be used on virtually any surface without the need for a computer, making them ideal for a variety of manufacturing environments.
Laser marking systems are divided into two major parts, the graphics editing portion and the marking control portion. The latter is done on a computer, while graphics editing takes place on the control card. Data is stored in an LDB file, which is then transmitted to the control card for the marking process. Unlike a computer, a laser marking system does not need a computer to mark. A USB device is used to send data to the control card.
A laser marking system can be divided into two parts: the software for marking and the hardware used to run it. The software for the graphics editing part runs on a PC, while the control card runs the core of the marking software. The graphics editing portion of the system is performed on the control card. The data from the LDB file is sent to the control card via a USB device. Once the laser is in the marking stage, it no longer needs a computer.
A laser marking system can also be purchased in separate parts. The control card acts as the interface between the laser and the computer. In this way, the marking system can be used with multiple components. In addition to the marking module, the graphics editing software can be installed on the control card, while the control card itself is mounted on a computer. In both cases, the hardware of the marking system must be connected to the laser. In the case of the latter, the system can be a stand-alone system.
The type of laser mark is dependent on several factors. The wavelength of the laser, its output power, and the pulse frequency determine the type of laser mark. In addition to these, the speed of the laser beam affects the depth of the marks. A high-speed laser can even distinguish between two parts with a small gap. There are many types of laser marking systems on the market. Choose the right one for your production needs. A quality system will ensure that your product is safe.
