Fiber Laser Marking Systems
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, automotive, firearms, dental, and electronic.
Fiber Laser Marking 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.
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

Laser Marking Software:
SCHMIDT offers two powerful, yet easy to use Windows-based software package. Your laser source and power selection will determine which software package is best suited for your laser system and will come in two variations. Both software offerings have an intuitive interface and graphic editor that combined will get you up and marking in minutes.
Both software editors enable you to create simple text string and shapes (lines, circles, ovals, rectangles, etc) as well as, import complex vector based artwork and logos in PLT and DXF format. Bitmapped images (GIF, BMP and JPEG) are also easily imported. These software packages can also be used to create 2d data matrix and 1d & 2d barcodes.
Standard software features include:

Laser System Enclosures & Workstations
Class IV (Open Environment)
Class IV is an open environment with no safety enclosure surrounding the laser source. Special safety eye wear and safety restrictions are required for this type of operation. Class IV lasers allow for many different configurations and part sizes. This set up is ideal for a private room or curtained space, where the laser and operator can work in isolation.
Class I (Enclosed) Systems
SCHMIDT class I certified enclosures adhere to federal protective housing guidelines. They are guaranteed light tight and do not emit any laser beam or radiation. The enclosures are equipped with protective glass, proper labels and fail-safe interlocks. See some Class I laser enclosure examples below.
SCHMIDT can custom design a laser system to fit your part sizes, marking field requirements, enclosure style needs, or any other system aspect specific to your application. Whether you need a free standing or desktop design, our engineering team can design your perfect laser workstation.
