This high-performance laser marker is part of a turnkey solution that easily integrates with PLCs, vision systems for inspection and database systems for traceability. The MX-Z_H fiber laser marker delivers high speed, high-quality etching at today’s in-line production speeds. The ability to mark 3D objects and edit the processing data are standard built-in functionality. An energy enhancement option enables deep, high contrast marking without slowing down production.
The MX-Z20xxH series offering great performance to laser mark characters, company logos, drawings, images on a wide variety of materials (plastics, resins, metal or other materials). Mark flat surfaces, slanted, stepped, or three dimensional like spheres, cylinders or conical without a problem.
Simply stated, laser marking removes material to create depth or modify the material to change the color, contrast or reflectivity of the surface. Therefore, when it comes to etching permanent marks on products, Omron’s MX-Z laser marker leads the market with:
It easily integrates with a vision system for pre-marking object alignment, mark inspection, and tracking of marked objects. Build a traceability solution from SQL databases using a combination of laser marker and vision system input with an NJ Database machine automation controller.
Time-saving integration features that reduce overall solution cost.
Laser type: Omron chose the combination of Fiber, YAG and YV04 lasers for the MX-Z series to maximize flexibility in the range of compatible metal and resin materials. However, the only popular materials not supported are glass and PET. For those materials recommend a CO2 laser. Omron’s main competitor uses SHG type laser. While there are overlaps in marked material compatibility, Omron’s laser marker provides a higher quality mark at production speed.
Repetition rate: This determines the quality of the laser marking Cycle time; the shorter the repetition rate, the faster the laser marking. So a lower repetition rate not necessarily bad, however, our competitors can say that they are faster, but the quality will not be as good.
