Compact laser marking

Nov. 13, 2013
FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving has introduced the M2000-B/P and M3000-B/P flexible laser marking machines in the M-Series.

Selmsdorf, Germany - With its compact workstations in the M-Series, M2000-B/P and M3000-B/P, FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving presents a new generation of flexible laser marking machines for the precise, quick and economic processing of geometrically complex workpieces of varying sizes as well as small and large batches of parts.

The M2000 and M3000 are available in two housing sizes in three model options: as basic models, the M2000-B and M3000-B machines feature a worktable, while models M2000-P and M3000-P are equipped with three programmable axes (X, Y, Z) as standard. The R model, a 2-station turntable machine, rounds off the series. Thanks to various laser systems, as well as flexible and easily retrofitted options and accessories, the laser workstations’ hardware and software can be optimally customized to the customer's requirements.

The entry-level models, M2000-B and M3000-B, are equipped with a programmable Z-axis with 590 mm overall travel distance, a spacious worktable, and an electric lift door.

With the P-model laser marking workstations, different positions on a workpiece can be traveled to in three dimensions. If required, all P machines can also be developed in 5 axes.

The marking workstations in the M-Series are equipped with high-precision calibration. In addition, customers can automatically detect the position of workpieces to be processed with the patented IMP (Intelligent Mark Positioning) camera system.

Design flexibility

The M-Series machines have been designed with flexibility in mind – to facilitate the integration into, safeguarding or enhancing of existing customer processes. The M2000 and M3000 machines have a minimal footprint (M2000 1m2, M3000 1.4m2) and are easily accessible from all sides.

"Constantly standing or sitting while working is tiring and decreases productivity. Our design engineers have attempted to combat this: Thanks to the electric height adjustment, all machines in the M-Series can be used for both seated and standing work. The workstation can even be moved from sitting to standing height and back during operation," explains Uwe Plath, Product Manager for FOBA's M-Series.

The Intelligent Ergonomics Concept, on which the laser workstations are based, can include having the control panel (with monitor, keyboard and computer mouse) mounted on the left or right side of the machine, so the machines can be configured for left or right handed people alike.
