Gilbert, Arizona (PRWEB) May 18, 2006
Worldwide Laser announces the introduction of the new LP8GXY laser system for laser marking, laser etching and laser cutting. The LP8GXY incorporates an x-y table with a glavo head to provide for maximum flexibility and speed related to Co2 laser marking, laser etching, or laser cutting your products.
The x-y table incorporated into the LP8GXY Co2 laser system from Worldwide Laser can have several difference travel distances. The standard LP8GXY Co2 laser system incorporates an x-y table with 13" of travel. The combination of the x-y table and galvo head allows for nesting of arrays of parts. This enables the x-y table to present them to the gavlo for high speed laser etching, laser marking, or laser cutting. The combined x-y table and galvo head brings all the advantages of speed and laser marking, laser etching, and laser cutting flexibility offered by galvo based lasers with the ability to exceed the normal galvo marking field and number of parts to be laser marked, laser etched, or laser cut by a normal galvo Co2 laser marking system.
The galvo head combined with a short focus lens can be utilized for Co2 laser marking or laser etching of very fine details, small characters, barcodes, or complex detailed logos. The x-y table allows multiple parts to be nested in fixtures and moved part by part under the glavo head for laser marking, or laser etching. This eliminates the constraints of short focus lens operating fields [generally 2.5" or less], increasing productivity, and through put to maximize laser production operations.
The galvo head can also be combined with a short distance focus lens to allow for laser marking or laser etching on metal with a Co2 laser. This eliminates the need for a YAG laser system reducing expenses of purchase and ownership and combining the processing benefits of the galvo speed and x-y table volume processing for laser marking, laser etching, and laser cutting.
The LP8GXY laser system from Worldwide Laser can be fitted with air cooled Co2 lasers from 10 to 100 watts and water cooled Co2 lasers from 150 watts to 400 watts. This allows laser marking, laser etching, and laser cutting of many different types of products and materials. The LP9GXY system offers the same process and advantages but includes a Nd:YAG laser instead of the Co2 laser system.
The LP8GXY laser system with either Co2 or Nd:YAG laser marking is perfectly suited for laser marking, laser etching, or laser cutting applications within the medical implant, medical devise, pharmaceutical, aerospace, or electronics industries.
The LP8GXY system is delivered complete with x-y table, laser, galvo head, industrial strength welded frame with adjustable feet, laser controller software, x-y table controller software, computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, CDRH Class I safety enclosure, dual interlocked safety door for operator access, light tower for indication of laser operation status and fume/debris exhaust system. Optional features such as vision systems and rotary fixtures can be added. Loading/unloading cassettes/elevators or robots can also be fitted if required.
The engineers at Worldwide Laser can specify and build the correct LP8GXY system for you either from the standard available model or with the addition of some the above options and features.
