Laser marking system XENO 1
Compact desktop system, offering little footprint and a large work area

Never has laser marking been so easy! Unpack the device, install the software, connect and get started.

XENO 1 is a compact desktop system, offering little footprint and a large work area.

XENO 1 perfectly fits with marking on metals or plastics.

XENO 1 completes the range of cab laser marking systems in the lower price segment. Processing the system complies with high industrial standards.

The marking plane is easily and quickly adjustable in height up to 200 mm with the motor-driven moveable Z-axis and the focus finder. In case of different height levels at the workpiece, the scan head can be automatically adjusted to the right focus distance by the integrated numeric Z-axis.

The marking can be simulated with the pilot laser. Interior LED lighting allows observation of the workpiece when the operation door is closed. The workpiece holder is mounted on the groove plate. A rotary axis is available for cylindrical objects. The focus finder makes it easy to adjust the marking plane.

The automatic operation door opens or closes within seconds. Material can be inserted manually or by a handling system from three sides. The extraction and filter system extracts pollutant particles, dusts or gaseous pollutants. It is provided as an accessory.

With the comprehensive cabLase marking software layouts are graphically designed, markings controlled and processes monitored. The legal environmental regulations RoHS and REACH are observed.

Sample applications

Evaporation with high energy density removes the material. An indentation with a sharp outline occurs.

is mainly applied with highly alloyed stainless steel as well as with titanium.

The laser ablates the top layer to uncover the underneath material. Examples include anodized layers or paint coatings.

is applied with plastics. The way the color changes depends from the chemical composition of the material as well as from ingredients and fillers.

The laser melts into the surface of the material.
