GF Machining Solutions has expanded its line of laser texturing machines with the Laser P 400 three-axis and Laser P 400U five-axis machines, designed to provide easy, repeatable laser engraving, texturing and structuring for small parts, such as cutting tools, small inserts and micromachined workpieces. All machines in the Laser 400 family are said to offer repeatable high performance, accuracy and quality. The range’s fully digitized texturing process makes it easy to texture, mark, engrave and add functional texture to parts, molds and dies, even when dealing with complex parts, the company says.

The P 400 accommodates workpieces as large as 23.6" × 15.7" × 9.8", while the P 400U accommodates workpieces with a maximum diameter and height of 4.7". The modular design features a dual-laser head that includes both a fiber nanosecond laser and femtosecond pulsed laser. This allows texturing and engraving of a surface with a single setup, and extends the range of materials that can be used.

According to GF Machining Solutions, the systems are automation-ready and allow for unattended and lights-out operation. The machines can be equipped with a System 3R pallet changer to further boost efficiency and flexibility.
