Laser Mark Solutions, recently formed by Dominick Watson, has selected a laser marking system from Rofin-Baasel to extend its range of laser marking services.

Watson said: ‘We needed to have a system that was compact, highly flexible and reliable as the whole business will initially be based around this first system.

‘The Easymark system from Rofin-Baasel was our first choice.

‘Another important factor in our decision making process was being able to draw on the extensive laser marking applications knowledge that Rofin make available as part of its after sales support.’ The Easymark system uses a diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 laser source and is capable of marking a wide range of materials including metal and plastic components.

The unit purchased by Laser Mark Solutions also has an optional rotary axis providing further flexibility for marking cylindrical components.

With a marking field of 120mm x 120mm and the capacity to accommodate components up to 450mm x 150mm x 200mm in size, Laser Mark Solutions will be able to process a diverse range of parts.

Many of the parts currently processed by Laser Mark Solutions are metal.

The laser is ideal for marking metal components, offering non-contact, abrasion-resistant marking onto a wide range of metals with speed and precision.

Examples of the different materials that can be marked using the laser include common carbon steels and stainless steels, plus other materials such as titanium and magnesium.

The high-quality permanent marks produced by a laser can withstand extreme conditions such as heat, abrasion and the effects of caustic fluids, which can often be encountered by metal components used in F1, automotive and aerospace applications.

The laser can be used to generate alphanumeric text, vector or rastered graphics, grey scale, bar codes or data matrix codes.

Easymark operates from a conventional 240V power socket, does not require any external cooling, and has the same safety rating as a CD player.

The self contained and compact desktop configuration means that the unit is portable.

Rofin’s Visual Laser Marker (VLM) Software allows the layout generation and transfer of the required marking data to be sent straight from the PC to the laser marker.

Standard focusing and positioning aids ensure that the system can be operated following a short introduction and training course.
