A fiber laser has an output of 1064 nm and is offered in two variants, the Q-switch and MOPA. Fiber lasers operate by either pulsing or continuously broadcasting the light onto the part. For fiber marking lasers, they are all pulsed lasers. Continous wave fiber lasers are usually 200 watt or higher and are for cutting metal.
The Q-Switch operates by pulsing energy (amplified light) onto a part. The pulse cannot be modified in terms of duration and is fixed. These are considered standard fiber lasers in the marketplace. Industry standards are 1-200 kHz, while the Automark AMFQ series line operates at 1-400 kHz. Our Q-Switch lasers provide a higher frequency than others in the marketplace allowing a greater range of printing capabilities which means it can print darker on aluminum and it can also print on an expanded range of plastics. It bridges the gap between a traditional Q-switch and MOPA fiber laser.
So easy to use and runs on any PC running Windows. This software allows the quick and easy marking of parts. Mark and engrave images, shapes, text, bar codes, QR codes, micro QR codes and even self-changing (dynamic) marks like serial numbers, dates and more. These lasers are built with 7 I/O ports, the ability to hook into robotics and even allow users to push data directly into the machine through database synchronization. Watch our video to learn more.
We offer three main laser configurations. The U series (Upright), O series (Open) and the E series (Enclosed). The U and E series share a viewing window and Class I reduction of the Class IV laser. The U and O series have 300 mm work areas, whereas the E series has a 200 mm work area. All laser specifications are the same across the lineup. For firearms, the O series is popular as it allows the full length of the firearm to be rest under the laser.
Substrates can include titanium, brass, steel, nickel, iron, aluminum and other metal alloys. Fiber lasers can mark limited ceramics, polypropylene, PA, and other thermoplastics. To see if we can mark your part, feel free to reach out to us as we offer free part marking.
15% Faster than the Leading Competitor
Our Automark AMFQ and AMFM line of fiber lasers operate at 7000 mm/s, approximately 15% faster than other leading competitor’s lasers, meaning higher throughput and greater return.
A class IV laser is the highest classification of laser meaning they can cause skin and eye damage, and class IV specifically can cause damage if viewed indirectly. A laser, when properly used is extremely safe.
We can use a rotary to hook the part onto and spin the part. The rotary feeds information into the laser, so the laser knows where it needs to mark. This is done if greater than 120 degree printing is required. Smaller rotaries, like 50mm are perfect for rings and small items, whereas, the larger 100mm rotaries are perfect for mugs and firearms. 3D Laser System
We offer laser solutions for moving parts like bottling operations, assembly lines, and conveyor belt part marking. Special photography can be implemented to identify part orientation so fixtureless printing is capable. For details on this and other more customized solutions, contact your Automark representative to discuss your program in detail.
