Coherent's EasyMark XL Provides Expanding Working Range
The EasyMark XL from Coherent is a fully integrated desktop laser marking system. Based on the EasyMark platform, the EasyMark XL offers an expanded working range and longer focal lengths, with marking fields are now available ranging to 240 × 240 mm.
The system’s processing head can be moved by 120 mm on a precision rail to be adapted to different workpiece heights. This means that larger workpieces with variable thickness can now be marked in one operation. The larger working area allows for batch processing of small parts for increased efficiency.
The EasyMark XL includes a number of options, including three different nanosecond infrared fiber lasers: the economical PowerLine F20, the high-speed PowerLine F50 and the PowerLine F20 Varia, which enables optimization of the heat input by adjusting the pulse width. Other options include a rotary axis for marking round parts and the APP Suite of software enabling effects such as 3D depth engraving. With this selection of options, the system can be configured for a range of applications ranging from marking codes on stainless steel medical devices to deep engraving of casting molds and stamps.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
For trimming composite parts, this shop describes where it uses machining centers and where it uses waterjet.
In titanium, significant savings and process efficiency can result from the simple fact that abrasive waterjet cutting leaves the remaining stock intact.
