Gravotech -  Laser series : Hybrid, CO2 and green

Mini-inline

INTEGRABLE LASER MARKER
Mini-inline - Laser protection nose for integrable laser markers
Mini-Inline - Gravotech
Simplify your laser marking machine integration with our Mini-inline: this laser safety concept protects the laser beam and facilitates particle extraction while freeing you from the costs and constraints of a class 1 laser enclosure.
  • SAFE
    No need for a bulky class 1 laser housing, the Mini-inline isolates the laser beam while the safety sensors make sure the part and Mini-inline are present: maximum laser engraver safety for the operator and his work environment.
     
  • COMPACT
    Thanks to its size, the Mini-inline is easily added to your existing production line. It allows the integration of our industrial laser marking system in very narrow areas, to engrave the necessary information on a wide range of parts.
     
  • COST-EFFECTIVE
    This accessory has the advantage of being cheaper than a class 1 laser protection housing: lower purchase price, and no pre-study cost for the final installation. In addition of the time saved installing the Mini-inline on the laser marker.

Mini inline - permanent and deep laser engraving

Secure industrial laser marking system for high-speed production lines

The Mini-inline defines a new standard in industrial laser engraver safety.

It’s array of sensors ensure marking safety conditions are met. Thanks to its class 1 laser certification (laser beam is totally isolated from its surroundings; no risk of eye or skin hazards), the operator and his surroundings are protected from the laser beam while the parts are being marked.

In our pursuit of security, the Mini-inline is certified by the German insurance and accident administration, the DGUV. This means our laser engraver safety solution passed several levels of certifications, ensuring the safety of the work environment.

In addition, the optimised air-flow design of the marking chamber help extract fumes and particles to a connected exhaust system for a safe breathing environment. This also limits the accumulation of dust within the Mini-inline, increasing the number of marking cycles before a cleaning is required.

Mini-inline with fiber laser marking machine mounted to robot arm

High-productivity solution

No need to bring large modifications to the production line, the Mini-inline is designed to fit right in.

Compared to a regular class 1 laser housing where the part has to be transferred into and out of the casing, our solution has the part moved to it, or is moved to the part. Maintaining low cycle-times.

Installed between our laser marking solution and the part to mark, its small footprint makes it highly convenient for automotive part marking in a horizontal or vertical integration; even attaching the laser marking machine and the Mini-inline to a robot arm.

Automotive part marking by class 1 laser marker

Automotive part marking

Developed in partnership with one of the biggest car manufacturers in the industry and to ensure perfect automotive part marking, the Mini-inline has been improved throughout time and is installed in more than 200 production lines.

Its main purpose is to secure the marking of large plastic and metal parts, while providing more spatial flexibility.

The Mini-inline associated with an industrial laser marking system can permanently mark parts such as:

  • car bodywork,
  • exhaust pipes,
  • engine crankcases,
  • gearbox housings,
  • stamped body parts,
  • fuel tanks,
  • structure parts
  • large curved parts, etc.
