Fiber Laser Marking System Capabilities

Schmidt Microlase® fiber laser marking systems are virtually maintenance free and have low operating costs. The fiber laser marking systems offer a small footprint making them extremely flexible for integration into your existing production line or as separate stand alone workstations. All Microlase® fiber laser marking systems are supplied with a Windows based laser marking systems software package.

Fiber laser marked part by Schmidt Marking SystemsFiber laser marking systems have a lifetime rating of up to 100,000 working hours. Fiber lasers offer high processing speeds and consistent high quality marks making them ideal for 2d part marking identification and traceability requirements. Fiber laser systems can mark most materials which were formerly thought to only be marked by lamp pumped and diode pumped solid state (DPSS) lasers. Fiber lasers will mark and engrave on steel, aluminum, plastics, ceramics and more. Fiber lasers are also well suited for virtually any deep marking, engraving, annealing, ablating, as well as, many cutting applications.

Schmidt Microlase® fiber laser marking systems can mark 1d and 2d barcodes, 2d data matrix, material flow, graphics, logos, date codes, serial numbers and or any sequence of characters and numbers on your parts and products. We can provide an integrated system of 2d marking, reading, and verifying based on your specific requirements and in compliance with AIM DPM quality and ISO certification guidelines.

Fiber Laser Marking System Benefits

Fiber laser marking systems significantly minimizes the stress and potential damage to parts, making this technology optimal for many industries, some of which include, aerospace, medical, photovoltaic, automotive, firearms, dental, and electronic.

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.

Laser System Enclosure small benchtop design 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.
Laser System Enclosure Freestanding Mobile 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.
Laser System Enclosure Marking Very Large Parts 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.
Laser System Enclosure Benchtop with Rotary Dial Plates 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.
Laser enclosure with rotary indexing table 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.
Laser enclosure for large parts 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.
Laser Enclosure Standard This laser enclosure features a 24 inch wide pneumatic door, and a power z-axis for automatic height variance in part sizes. There is also a removable side panel for convenient access to the laser head and lens.
Nameplate shuttle feed laser marking system 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.
Laser marking system enlcosure 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.
