To meet manufacturers’ demands for a light, compact and adaptable fiber laser solution, FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving, a global leader in industrial laser part marking and engraving solutions, has introduced the new FOBA Y.0200-S model to upgrade its existing range of fiber laser marking systems. The powerful marking laser is up to 44 percent lighter than similar fiber laser systems from other providers and gives manufacturers marking versatility.
FOBA understands manufacturers’ varying needs for marking on many kinds of industrial parts, and has specifically designed the new Y.0200-S fiber laser to meet their unique laser identification requirements. The system is ideal for demanding production schedules – especially in the electronics and automotive supplies or metal and plastics processing industries –, as manufacturers need marking systems that can keep pace and provide a high level of code contrast on robust, high-density materials.
Available with 20 Watts of output power, the FOBA Y.0200-S fiber laser provides increased productivity and operational freedom through several enhanced features. Users can select either a 6mm marking head for high-speed production or a 10mm marking head for parts marking with fine detail, offering flexibility and application confidence for marking on various product shapes and sizes.
The Y.0200-S fiber laser offers enhanced productivity benefits by allowing manufacturers to mark codes faster on more products and materials, due to a combination of improved data processing speeds and marking speeds up to 1,300 characters per second with the 6mm marking head or up to 1,000 characters per second with the 10mm marking head, depending on the application.
The new laser provides seamless integration into various production lines. Users can choose to control the FOBA Y.0200-S using FOBA’s Touch Control Software+ (TCS+) on the IP65-rated TU430 10.1-inch color touchscreen laser controller or on most browser-based devices.
“Our customers will benefit from this lightweight, compact and agile fiber laser solution, offering versatility in tight spaces,” said Wen Xiao, FOBA General Manager in the APAC region. “Having the choice between a zero or 90 degree marking head orientation provides flexibility on production lines with space limitations. The 6mm marking head has the smallest laser head dimensions in the industry.”
Additionally, the Y.0200-S helps to minimize downtime and increase productivity with an air-cooled laser source that virtually eliminates maintenance intervals. The laser also uses no consumables such as inks, solvents or compressed air, and contains no wear parts to replace. The FOBA Y.0200-S fiber laser marking systems enhances the FOBA fiber laser portfolio while offering manufacturers operational freedom.
