Laser Marking Range

SIC MARKING, a provider of dot peen and scribing solutions, offers its laser marking range. This range uses a ytterbium doped fiber source designed by SIC Marking, a pulsed operating mode (30 to 60 kHz), a wavelength of 1064 Nm and an average power of 20 W (available in 30 W and 50 W).

This laser range is designed to meet 80% of applications needs at a lower cost. It allows an enhanced marking quality on a large number of materials (steel, aluminum, stainless steel, plastics, etc.) and adapts to degraded surface finishes.

Modular and Adaptive Design

Integrated lasers have been developed around two laser sources, a standard EASY version and an HD version, to which are added different options. These features meet specific needs immediately or later on, depending on the customer's production line evolution.

In its standard EASY version, this laser range allows precise marking at high speeds. The HD version (pulse duration from 2 ns to 200 ns) provides better marking contrasts on metals, especially aluminum and some plastics. This HD marking head also solves cycle time issues by adjusting the laser's pulse duration.

Options Adapt to Current and Future Needs

The first option is 3-D marking. It consists of a liquid lens that can mark complex parts (cylinders, inclined planes, etc.) or multi-level parts (up to 80 mm difference in altitude).

Customers can also choose an integrated vision system that includes a high-resolution camera built into the marking head. This function allows users to read one or two 2-D codes immediately after marking. There is no movement between operations. Because the reading is done in the same axis, there is no image distortion. Two-D code, QR Code and Data Matrix markings are checked according to the standards ISO 29158, ISO 15415, ISO 9132.

The laser range also offers the possibility to communicate via Profibus, Profinet and Ethernet / IP field buses.

With the modular EASY and HD lasers, SIC MARKING supports industries that need to be responsive to technological developments."It is important for us to make laser technology more accessible financially to our customers, but also to make sure they pay the fair price according to their needs. Our customers have the opportunity to add 3-D marking, integrated vision and communication cards options after purchase, because we know that production lines are likely to evolve over time," said Jean-Manuel Pauchet, Group Managing Director.

SIC Marking's standard laser range is available with marking windows of 60 mm x 60 mm, 100 mm x 100 mm and 170 mm x 170 mm and applies to alphanumeric, Data Matrix, barcodes, logos, VIN and QR codes marking. The marking head is easy to integrate on all production lines and can be connected to an industrial network without any additional hardware via digital I/O, Ethernet TCP/IP and RS232.

SIC Marking's laser systems operate in standalone mode (without PC) and can communicate directly with a PLC on a production line. Creation and configuration of marking files is done on a PC using SIC Laser Advanced software.
