Fiber Laser Applications
• Plastic and metal marking for a variety of industries such as automotive, electronics, and medical
• Laser annealing on precision metal components such as medical equipment
• Deep engraving for firearms, heavy equipment, oil field, and many other applications
• 2D & 1D code marking for identification and traceability
Fiber Laser Systems
The fiber laser technology represents the ultimate laser marking system in an extremely compact footprint. The fiber laser is ideal for direct part marking in a range of industries for marking on metal parts, plastic parts and components.
The fiber laser increases performance in terms of power, reliability, setup, flexible programming and control. Its higher output power improves marking performance in terms of marking speed and engraving depth. The fiber lasers guarantees high reliability even in harsh environments.
The fiber lasers are equipped with 4 independent axis controls (X, Y, Z, & R - a rotating axis) to implement multi-layer and rotary marking. Dedicated encoder input is applied for marking on the fly (MOF) even in accelerated and variable speed conditions. Advanced software functions support a variety of solutions including operator attended work stations and fully automated marking centers.
The fiber lasers system design allows for simple machine integration. Available in 10W, 20W, 30W, 50W, 70W and 100W laser sources, the fiber laser systems include a compact scan head, a small controller design and our user-friendly editor software. A red laser spot allows for fast focusing of the laser beam during setup. With the user-friendly software, the operator can define any kind of label, logo, text, data matrix, or bar code for laser marking and traceability applications.

Laser Marking Systems - Options and Accessories
Below are some examples of system options and accessories. Schmidt can custom design a laser system to fit your part sizes, marking field requirements, enclosure needs, or any other system aspect specific to your application needs.
Laser Marking System Enclosures: Custom Examples
Schmidt's in-house engineering department can custom design any type or size of enclosure to best fit your marking application. Below are just a few examples of some of the laser enclosures we have manufactured for our customers.
|This economically designed laser enclosure features a manual operated hinged door with safety interlock and self contained rack mounted controls. This compact system can be equipped with a manual or powered z-axis for marking height variance adjustment in part sizes.|
|This benchtop laser enclosure features a manual operated lift door with safety interlock, and a programmable z-xis for height variance adjustment in part sizes. It is also equipped with a rotary device for marking round parts. It features self contained rack mounted controls and a removable panels for convenient access to the laser components.|
|This free standing laser enclosure features a manual operated hinged door with safety interlock, manual z-axis for height variance adjustment in part sizes. A rear interlock door for convenient access to the laser head and lens. A side mounted monitor keyboard & mouse. All manual features can be upgraded to automatic and powered options.|
|This large enclosure was custom designed to handle parts up to 7 feet long. It features dual sliding interlock safety doors for ease of part placement and convenient access to the laser head and lens. This enclosure is mounted on a mobile cart for ease around the shop floor.|
|This laser enclosure features a two position rotary indexing table so one set of parts can be loaded outside of the enclosure while another set of parts are being marked. The indexing table is equipped with anti-tie-down dual palm controls for operator safety.|
|This laser enclosure features a large front access manual door giving the operator the option to hand place larger parts into the marking field. It also has a two position rotary indexing table so one set of parts can be loaded outside of the enclosure while another set of parts are being marked. The indexing table is equipped with anti-tie-down dual palm controls for operator safety.|
|This enclosure is equipped with a power Z axis for automatic height variance in part sizes, a manual front facing door, and a rotary fixture for laser marking round parts. It also features two side panels for convenient access to the laser components.|
|This enclosure features a shuttle table that slides outside of the enclosure to ease the placement of heavy parts onto the marking field table. There is also a large full access side interlocked door for convenient access to the laser head and lens.|
|This laser enclosure features a manual z-axis, and a manual door equipped with anti-tie-down dual palm controls for operator safety. There is also a removable side panel for convenient access to the laser components.|

|This compact name plate shuttle feed system comes with a light tight enclosure over the laser marking area. Name plate tags are shuttled from the de-stack magazine into the laser marking cabinet. Once the marking cycle is complete, the tags are then shuttled out of the enclosure into the re-stack magazine.|
|This smaller sized laser enclosure is complete with a powered Z-axis for automatic height variance in part sizes, an automatic interlock door, and two removable side panels for convenient access to the laser head and lens.|
Laser Marking System Software:
Schmidt offers two powerful, yet easy to use Windows-based software package for its Microlase® laser marking systems.
The laser source and power selection will determine which software package is best suited for the laser system and will come in two variations:
- The software is installed on the PC that will run the laser marking system.
- The software is integrated into the laser controller and a PC is not required.
For more information see our laser marking software page.
