We only use industrial style laser sources in our system. The CO2 laser wavelength is best for paint removal, glass marking and CerMark laser bonding on bare stainless cups. We offer a few different power levels and options like water cooling if the system is going to be run continuously.
By using high speed precision motor with small mirrors our laser systems are able to engrave around 10 times faster then plotter style laser engravers. For example a painted cup in our system should take around 35 seconds compared to 3 1/2 minutes on a plotter style laser engraving system.
The biggest delay in marking curved items is having to move the part. Our system will allow you to mark a large area on a cup without having to move it.
We have developed a special method of marking glass that requires no masking and gives smooth surface marks.
Our rotary option allows you to create seamless engraving 360 degrees around the item fast without overlap or gaps in the image.
You can also engrave cups with handles and a wide range of diameters in our system.
We have several different levels of software depending on your needs.
Some of the standard features in all versions include:
import and adjust various image file types
photo quality bitmap marking
tool path optimization to mark images with as little moves as needed
use any true type fonts
several manipulation tools for text
create template files for different part types
"light Show" preview mode for alignment using red pointer laser
Network communication for data importing
Custom User Interface screens can be created
We can provide an online demonstration as well as further details information on the control software upon request.
