To understand which laser is best for your product, first you need to identify the material. Any metal can be marked with a Fiber Laser (the most common). On the other hand, plastic can be marked with Traditional Fiber, MOPA Fiber, Green Laser, or UV Laser. The CO2 Laser is definitely the best laser for organic materials, like wood, and glass.

To select the best product, we need to identify your needs. The source will depend on the type of material you want to mark. Fiber Lasers are the most common, in the standard, MOPA, or Picosecond versions. After identifying the material, we choose the laser marker based on productivity and the size and shape of the component. Read this article to learn more.

The main factors to consider are laser source, marker type (stand-alone or fully automated), and any additional accessories. This article explains in detail what goes into the cost of a laser marker and what you should consider before buying one.
LASIT laser markers comply with all Industry 4.0 parameters and standards. They interface with the customer’s MES-ERP systems and (using FlyCAD software) can automatically manage complex data and automation sequences. To learn more about Laser Marking and Industry 4.0, go here.
All LASIT laser markers comply with Industry 4.0 standards. This means that the machine can be integrated into the customer’s factory systems. To do this, the customer’s ICT technician must prepare the system to communicate correctly with the laser marker. For a detailed technical discussion about Industry 4.0, go here.
Laser markers are very versatile. The main factor to consider is component material and size. If the source is suitable for the material and the component is mechanically acceptable, there is no reason to change the laser system.
A Fiber laser has an average operating life of 100,000 hours. This means that it could work nonstop for a very long time without any changes in performance. A laser marker can last ten to twenty years, depending on how it is use and cared for.
The warranty period for a basic LASIT laser marker is two years. The warranty can be extended at the end of this 24-month period.
Certainly. After installing the laser marker, we are always at your service to provide remote and on-site support as requested.
A dot-peening marker uses a noisy mechanical tip, is less precise, and not as versatile. With laser marking, any logo or graphic image can be marked in a very short time. Plus, there is no stylus to be replaced, which means the laser spot is never damaged. Read this article to learn more about why laser marking is more economical than dot-peening.
Laser is definitely the most eco-friendly technology for marking or engraving codes and logos on your products. A laser marker does not have any consumables like ink or dye and does not require you to replace parts frequently, unlike with dot-peening and styluses (which we discuss in this article). Go here for a detailed discussion about ecology and lasers, pioneers for a greener world.
This depends on their safety class. Safety classes range from IV to I. They define the laser’s risk to humans and the protective equipment necessary for users. Class 1 laser systems are the safest for the operator. Even after extended contact with eyes and optical tools, they do not cause damage because their power output is only a few microwatts. In this article, we discuss the various classes and their characteristics.
Laser integration into an existing line is very common. LASIT lasers can easily be integrated into automatic lines. Learn about our Powermark products in the dedicated section.
Laser markers can mark cylindrical objects. This is possible because the laser has a defined focal tolerance and because we use a 3-axis-head to create a 3D marking. Go here for a detailed discussion about the 3-axis-head for marking cylindrical objects.
Both lasers use a Fiber source. The MOPA features the ability to control the pulse, which is very useful when marking plastic to avoid burns. This article discusses the main differences and advantages of the MOPA laser.
Yes. LASIT performs marking tests on your products free of charge. Our laboratories have twelve laser sources available to guarantee excellent service and to get the results you want in the shortest time.
Thanks to the laser spot, we can mark DataMatrixes that are just 0.5 mm2 without affecting quality or readability.
In the world of laser marking, there are different types of vision systems. The system changes based on the application and specific requirements of the analysis type. The two most popular are the TTL and lateral vision systems. In this article, we discuss their characteristics and when to use them.
The difference between laser marking and laser engraving is very subtle, but there are differences. In terms of appearance, engraving is only visible in a few applications. This article discusses the differences between laser marking and laser engraving. Additionally, this article discusses the steps for making markings.
To focus, the laser’s scanning head must be at the right distance from the object to be marked, which is positioned on the plane. This distance depends on the focus used. Each LASIT scanning head has a label that indicates the focal distance. LASIT has developed the Smart Focus system to make focusing easier, which would otherwise be performed manually.
First, to understand if the filters are clogged, check using the software or the extractor’s command console. Click to watch a video where we give step-by-step instructions on how to replace the extractor filters.
We prepared this video with step-by-step instructions on how to find the laser’s IP address.
