Rofin’s EasyMark compact laser marking system has a modular design that enables it to be operated as laser class 1 and IV systems by removing side panels. It can also be easily integrated into production lines. Its diode-pumped or fiber laser technology and software makes it well-suited for a variety of marking applications.
The supply control unit and the working chamber are designed as separate modules. This provides flexibility for creating the optimum system setups for each individual application. The system not only handles standard applications with manual part placement and removal, but also semi- or fully automated production lines. It can mark metals or polymers that are flat or cylindrical.
Without the laser class I enclosure, the EasyMark becomes an open laser class IV marking module with significant integration options, the company says. The side panels can easily be removed to accommodate long and bulky work pieces and the system can be used with automated part feeding solutions such as conveyors. The lifting door provides easy access to the entire working chamber. When the door is closed, the process can be monitored from the large inspection window. The system is combined with a camera and pilot laser for exact part positioning within the 120mm² marking area (optionally 180mm²).
Depending on customer requirements, the EasyMark is powered by PowerLine F fiber lasers with 20, 30 or 50 W, or with the diode end-pumped PowerLine E 10. All laser sources are air-cooled and designed for continuous industrial operation. The system requires only a standard, single-phase power supply. The EasyMark comes with a programmable Z-axis and can be equipped with an optional rotary axis. Additional options such as the Through-the-Lens (TTL) camera, automatic door and foot switch are also available.
