The system is suitable for demanding production schedules, especially in the automotive supply chain, or metal and plastics processing industries. FOBA’s Y.0200-S marking system can keep pace with legal ID specifications and provide a high level of code contrast and durability, even on robust, high-density materials, says the company.

A 20 W fiber laser is housed within the unit, providing increased operational freedom, flexibility and application confidence. Users can select either a 6 mm marking head for high-speed production, or a 10 mm marking head for part marking with fine detail.

Improved data processing and high marking speed allow for enhanced productivity: up to 1,300 characters per second can be achieved with the 6 mm marking head; or up to 1,000 characters per second with the 10 mm marking head, depending on the application.

The laser provides seamless integration into various production lines and users can control the marking process using FOBA Go software on the IP65-rated 10.1” colour touchscreen, or on most browser-based devices.

“Having the choice between a 0 or 90° marking head orientation, customers benefit from versatility in tight spaces and easy mounting of one of the smallest marking heads available,” says Wen Xiao, FOBA general manager in the APAC region.
