DECORATING: High-Throughput Laser Marking

FOBA's new laser marking workstations feature two-position rotary tables for high-throughput and ergonomic processing.

Two new compact workstations for industrial laser marking feature two-position automated rotary tables for the efficient and ergonomic processing of geometrically complex work pieces of varying sizes as well as small and large batches of parts.

Recently launched by FOBA Laser Marking & Engraving, Boxborough, Mass., these high-throughput M2000-R and M3000-R laser workstations are said to be particularly suited for marking all kinds of serial parts such as day/night design parts for vehicle interiors, metal components, tools or medical products and devices such as implants or surgical instruments.

Part loading and unloading via a two-position rotary table is said to ensure that various applications can be executed more efficiently and without using additional beam safety light barriers. Parts are loaded and unloaded while another part is being laser market, so that loading times hardly influence machine productivity. This results in an increase in machine utilization and parts throughput. The ergonomic stations are designed for both standing and seated work, and allow for individual height adjustment—stepless electrical height-adjustment with lower position at 1,844mm and maximum position at 2,144 mm. The control panel can be mounted on the left or right side of the machine, to accommodate both left and right handed people.
