Marking Flexibility With Two Operating Modes: Fine Detail to Deep Engraving

The standard mode on Omron's Fiber Laser Marker uses exclusive flexible pulse control, (up to 1MHz, adjustable 1 - 20 pulses) which enables optimum marking and processing for a variety of materials and applications, such as marking/processing that is difficult to heat, heated marking/processing, etc. Clean marking is now possible for 3D surfaces as well. The laser can mark stepped, sloped, curved, conical and spherical surfaces without any additional software. Deep engraving of metal, rough polishing, and other energy-intense processing becomes possible with expanded and enhanced flexible pulse control, and pulse streams up to 30 pulses. This laser also allows clear and clean marks even at high speeds. The Galvano Dynamic Acceleration Control, or the G-DAC feature, adjusts the speed for optimum performance, based on the print details. This type of speed flexibility enables high-speed, clean marking.

Tsunagi & Tracing 

The MX-Z2000H series enables the kind of image processing and marking that traditionally requires PLC processing, without the PLC. This new laser allows you to keep a traceability log where you can archive marking data, marking time, power check results, laster operating times etc. This feature can help simplify both traceability and preventive maintenance. The MX-Z2000H series is also compatible with various kinds of external control. Building in I/O connections, RS-232C, Ethernet, and Ethernet/IP™ has simplified programming to control the system from a PLC. Data can also be shared with external storage. You can access and print data that is stored on an Ethernet server to keep up with the tremendous amount of data used for multi-variant, small lot productions. This simplifies the switching of print data for each variant.

Durability/Safety 

The laser's durable IP65 Head (where the laser light is emitted) has a double glass cover to keep dust and moisture away and ensure air-tightness. IP65 means dust-proof and wash-down capable and is compatible with IEC60529.

The MX-Z2000H series has 2 safety relays in the controller, and has the ability to send an emergency stop signal from an external controller to the interlock terminals that will absolutely stop the power supply to the laser. This product meets ISO 13849-1 (JIS-B9705-1) criteria. The laser also meets each standard and regulation that can now be used internationally.

Precision positioning is now possible for fine detail and processing area distortion is minimized. Coordinate correction is provided to eliminate errors based on installation.

MOPA Fiber Laser

Typical solid-state lasers use mirrors to resonate and amplify the laser, and then Q-switching to output the laser. However, this approach makes it difficult to achieve a high quality and flexible laser. It also leaves something to be desired in the areas of reliability and durability. Omron has achieved high quality, high stability, long life and flexibility by eliminating the resonator configuration and using the MOPA approach. The MOPA Fiber Laser has a wide range of pulse repetition frequency settings as well as high flexibility for setting the pulse width and shape.


Reducing Effort with Easy Operability

There is no need to buy separate editing software, or a computer to edit data. Data editing functionality is built right into the laser marker itself, which simplifys the process. You can use a separate computer, if you choose, to create and edit the print data, including graphics, with the same functionality as is built into the laser marker.

Simplifying Positioning and Other Floor Work 

The finder feature enables visual positioning of small parts for marking/processing, as well as automated positioning and inspection with an image processing system.
