FL+ marking lasers

FL+ LogoPrecise, fast, economic – cab fiber lasers

Performance and quality of a marking mainly relies on the output power and the laser beam‘s focusing. cab marking lasers FL+ are diode-pumped, air-cooled and offer highest beam quality and pulse peak power. An output power of the laser source of 10 up to 50 Watt is available.

Different plano-spherical lenses allow the lasers to mark in a field of 69x69 up to 290x290 mm. The lasers are used to mark on plastic, metal and color-coated surfaces.

The marking lasers FL+ consist of two fiber coupled functional modules: The scan head and the control unit with integrated laser source. The scan head may be assembled in each installation position. Control unit with integrated laser source is available in two different designs.

Two different designs

Marking laser FL+20Tvergrößern

Type 1 “Tower” for FL+20/30 Watt
Very compact design, used both as desktop version and for the integration into housings.

Marking laser FL+20Rvergrößern

Type 2 “Rack” for FL+10/20/30/50 Watt
Preferably used for the integration into 19“ cabinets. Control unit and laser source are incorporated in a 19“ rack mount.

Marking laser FL+ – Applications

cab FL+ marking lasers are primarily used for the processing of metal and plastic parts. Different methods are commonly used depending on the requirement and material.

Engraving

Ablation of the material through evaporation with very high energy density that produces a deep marking with contour sharpness. An additional color change depending on the alloy or chemical composition improves the readability of the marking contents.

Cast parts

Annealing

Is mainly used with high-alloy, stainless steels and with titanium. Laser annealing creates a color change when the material is selectively exposed to heat and oxygen without noticeable material ablation.

Surface removal

The laser marker removes top coating to show a different-colored material underneath. Examples: top coatings or anodizing layers, laser label material or day and night design on control buttons

Color change

Is used for the processing of plastic material. The color change depends on the chemical composition of the material and additives. Destroying color pigments and creating gas-bubbles within the material produces light marks. Carbonization produces dark marks.

Foaming

The laser beam melts the workpiece surface locally. Small gas bubbles increase the volume of the molten material producing a raised marking. Small gas bubbles within the material diffusely reflect the light.
