In many industries, part labeling is not ornamentation and decoration, but is required by law for safety reasons. However, not only the content of the markings, but also the type and nature are strictly regulated. Serial and batch numbers, for example, must be permanently engraved on the material or engraved with a relatively large depth in the material and must not be easily removable by manipulation.
Unique features characterize fiber lasers, such as electrical-optical efficiencies up to more than 30%, outstanding beam quality with M2<1.1 for single-mode fiber laser design, M2<1.2 for double-clad fiber, a long lifetime (> 100,000 hours) and a compact, maintenance-free and insensitive design.
In addition to solid-state lasers, CO2 lasers are among the most powerful and most frequently used lasers in industry. Here, a beam of infrared light is generated with a wavelength in the bands of 9.4 and 10.6 µm. CO2 lasers are efficient and cost-effective, which is why they are used primarily in industrial material processing.
With the laser marking machines from Systemtechnik Hölzer, the markings succeed on a wide variety of materials. The decisive factors are laser power, beam source and wavelength (fiber, CO2, UV). Depending on the application and requirements, we offer flexible stand-alone machines, inline machines for cycle time optimization and OEM laser systems for integration.
Below are some examples:
FR2 / FR4 composite materials
The following are a small selection of options for how your laser device could be designed so that you can integrate it into your production chain as effectively as possible.
Compact laser with large marking area. Can be individually adapted for long components.
