LightMachinery's' LaserMark 950 and 960 series lasers provide a fast, reliable
means of applying high quality permanent marks such as date and batch
codes to consumer product packages and electronic components. These pulsed
CO2 lasers complete the entire marking process in less than 1 micro-second
so marking can be done "on the fly" without mark smearing
or degradation that can occur in other types of laser marking.
can mark on a wide variety of materials including inked paper and cards,
foils, painted or anodized metal, glass and many types of plastic. The
LaserMark series provides ease of operation, extreme reliability and
high uptime, in production environments. Solid state SSM high voltage
modulators and ultra-low gas flow ensure minimal consumable and maintenance
costs. The LaserMark 960SSM series is sealed to NEMA 12 standards for
general purpose applications. For more demanding operation the 950SSM
series is NEMA 4 rated for direct high pressure hose down.
Plastic additives can dramatically alter the laser marking characteristics of plastic materials. Normally polyethylene cannot be marked with a LaserMark laser. This photo shows the appearance of polyethylene with the additive Afflair 120 after marking with a CO2 LaserMark system.
This polyethylene sample uses Aflair 219 and produces a light mark on a dark background
Red polystyrene is doped with Afflair 504 to produce a high contrast light mark on a dark background
Laser marks inside bottle caps can produce vivid high contrast "sorry try again" messages at very high speed. "you just won 1,000,000" is also possible.
>CO2 laser produce a characteristic dark yellow mark on all PVC products, regardless of the base material color. A clear PVC bag is shown here
All LightMachinery CO2 lasers are available in 10.6um and 9.3um output versions. Our Applications lab can help determine the best wavelength for your application. Shown here is an infared spectrometer reading showing the 9.3um transition.
The unique features of the LaserMark series have established it as the marking and coding system of choice for many customers in the food and beverage packaging, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and electronic industries. Our Applications Lab is ready to process your samples at any time, just contact us.
