Gravotech -  Laser series : Hybrid, CO2 and green

HYBRID laser, the best compromise between versatility, high quality and high speed to meet all your marking needs

INTEGRABLE LASER MARKER
The 1064 nm HYBRID laser marker is perfect for applications requiring a great versatility in terms of marking materials at the highest speed, from plastics to any kind of metals.

 

  • Extraordinary peak power The Hybrid laser is characterised by its peak power and extremely short pulse duration. Thanks to its high peak power of up to 150,000 W per shot, which is 15 times more powerful than a standard fibre laser at the same energy level, it offers a unique interaction on plastics for high-contrast marking.
  • Short pulse duration for an outstanding quality marking The small diameter of the laser spot is combined with a very short pulse duration of 8ns, 10 times shorter than a standard fibre laser. The quality of the marking is perfect, with no halos or distortion due to heating. It is the ideal solution for applications requiring thin marking and perfect aesthetic results such as the horology and jewellery sectors.
  • Versatility All types of marking finishes are possible thanks to the power range of the HYBRID laser. It is the perfect solution when you have a wide variety of parts made of different materials from hard metal to soft plastics.

 

Technical Specifications

- Different laser powers available: 10W it is perfectly suited for contrasting marking on plastic. 20W for very high productivity on plastics, marking up to twice as fast for all types of metals, even the most reflective ones. - Laser classification: Class 4 Laser system, possibility to switch in Class 1 for integration on a station or equipped with Mini inline module. - Monobloc design, easy integration: No sensitive cable connections in system integration, Thanks to its integrated HMI display, it provides access to self-diagnostic, updates, history of faults, maintenance functions and simplifies the implementation in all positions and visualisation of tasks for the operator. - Highly communicative laser: HYBRID laser marker is compatible natively with a wide range of communication protocols: Ethernet TCP/ IP, RS232, standard 8 I / 80, Dedicated I/O via DB-37 and optional industrial communication protocols like Profinet & Ethernet IP. - Robust laser system: working temperature up to 40°C, built-in and washable filter for air cooling, protection against scratches and deposits.

Autofocus to mark on multilevel

This module guarantees you a precise and consistent laser marking without any mechanical adaptation when you change the type of part. It simplifies your integration: - No need to re-adjust the focal distance, even when you are marking various types of parts with different heights on the same line. - It offers more flexibility on your production lines, giving the possibility to have parts with a difference of up to 120 mm height without moving the laser. Just select the right marking job and you are ready to switch to another product line.

dpss laser for permanent marking

This module is combined with a distance sensor to make an Autofocus. The laser detects automatically the part surface and adjust the focal distance without any calibration or waiting time: - Guarantee of optimal marking quality regardless of the flatness of the parts or their shape. - Constant contrast & depth. Boost your productivity with the fastest solution. - Instant refocusing: Less than 100ms to change focal distance. - Reduce your marking cycle time.

Metal marking laser machine on production line

This HYBRID laser marker also manages cylindrical surfaces, angled planes and multilevel surfaces without any head movement: - Instantaneous marking on complex part with the possibility to mix curved surfaces and angled planes at different heights up to 120 mm amplitude. - No character deformation. - Uniform contrast over the entire engraving area.

Embedded software on laser marker

This HYBRID laser marker can work autonomously in a production line and generate all data necessary to your identification without the need of a computer. It can serialize your parts instantaneously, generate unique ID with complex marking content (timestamps with multiple formats, variables, counters, shift codes) and update the text and 1D/2D codes predefined in your templates. This powerful embedded electronic can communicate and centralize information coming from your PLCs and database in real-time, saving you time while increasing your productivity.

Lasertrace : our marking and identification software

Developed by Gravotech and enriched by numerous application experiences, LASERTRACE is a unique software specially designed to create the marking files to be loaded in the laser system. It includes a graphic composition to add text, logo and all kind of codes like Datamatrix in your marking templates. You can describe your marking process according to specified rules: the actions (marking blocks) to be carried out, the sequence of execution and the possibility to implement a large choice of transitions (output activations, camera blocks, variables, etc).

Vision manager - marking control

This package helps you read codes and texts during the marking process, to ensure that the marking has been done properly and keep a 100% traceability of your products: - High performance: reading camera with lighting, auto-focus system and protective lens. - Easy set up: You are a few clicks away to complete control of the 1D/2D codes and your text (OCR fonts). - Quality control of the code visibility (Grade). - Monitoring of the marking quality by triggering large choice of operations: send status info and history to the PLC, activation of alarms, activate actuators to reject faulty part.
