The Z-axis Controls Allow For Precise Marking On Any Surface Or Shape
Precise 3D marking is possible on complex shapes with 3-Axis marking controlled by the Z-axis scanner. With the 3D configuration software, marking on any target surface is easily programmed.
The 3D configuration software allows users to precisely lay on any shaped target in the 3D edit screen. Since it is possible to mark anywhere within the 3D marking field, mounting constraints can also be accounted for in the laser marker program adding flexibility in the placement of marking equipment on the production line.
Using 3D CAD data (STL format), the actual profile of the target
can be imported into Marking Builder. The user can then lay out
marks anywhere on the custom target.
Perfectly focused marks are able to be applied to any surface such as curves and inclined surfaces. Uninterrupted marking can be performed even on different surfaces without changing jigs.
The MD-F Series provides precision marking for up to a 300 mm (11.8") x 300 mm (11.8") area. The Z-axis control maintains perfectly-focused marking throughout the entire marking field without distortion. The installation position correction function allows for the correction of the marking unit inclination in the 3D edit screen after a target is set without the need for mechanical adjustment.
Problems associated with the properties of the Fθ lens used in conventional systems have been eliminated, thus characters stay clear and crisp over the entire marking area.
In addition to the traditional combination of laser power, marking speed and Pulse frequency, the spot variable sample marking function features a useful feature that marks characters while changing the spot size (focal length). The optimum marking condition can be determined from the sample marking results. Even beginners can quickly find the best marking condition for difficult mark settings such as shallow marking on electronics components (resins) or black marking on tools (metals).
The multi-guide laser function scans a visible red laser beam at high speed to display the marking area and characters on the actual target. Choose to project the entire marking area, the exact position of each mark, or the shape of the target. Utilizing the guide laser will ensure the markings will never be out of position.
