FlyPeak: the ideal laser for marking all types of plastic

Powermark-flypeak-thumbs Fly Air Green

The Powermark FlyPeak laser is a revolution in laser marking on plastic. It is a DPSS (diode pumped solid state) system, combining the high peak power of very short pulse duration (compared to commercial solid state lasers) with unchanged average power, and the only laser source on the market that does this.

FlyPeak operates in a single shot range at 100 kHz with pulse width between 2 and 10 ns. Controlling the heat input is critical for quality laser marking on plastic. Too much heat can burn the marking edges, compromising quality and contrast. Instead of white, the marking comes out brownish-yellow.

 

Powermark FlyPeak for integration is a robust, durable product, that works in any industrial environment. It can be used for laser marking: 2D codes, alphanumerical codes, one-dimensional codes, and logos.

The FLYPEAK laser pulse is always less than 10 ns for its entire range (from 20 kHz = 3.5 ns). This allows the marking to be cooled compared to traditional nanolasers, including fiber lasers. As a result, process quality is better. As with all LASIT laser markers, this one can be integrated into the line with Profibus, Profinet, or Ethernet/IP protocols.

 

All our Laser Markers are qualified for Industry 4.0. LASIT supplies all the necessary technical materials and instructions for connecting the laser to the factory’s system at no additional cost. LASIT can ship this product in 48 hours.

      Powermark FlyPeak: Instructions for Use

      Instructions for Stand-Alone Use

      In this mode, the laser operates without a command PC, and it can be integrated into production lines with limited space.

       

      It does not require an operator interface, and installation is much faster.

      Manage multiple lasers with a single PC

      As an alternative to FlyCAD, the FlyPowermark software with a fully customizable operator interface is available for automated environments. It can manage several data input modes, for example, access to the company factory system (database, web services, TCP/IP). It can potentially manage an infinite number of lasers, making it possible to design applications to command all the lasers on the line simultaneously.

      Cameras for reading and grading DataMatrix codes

      In addition to the lateral vision system, LASIT equips its laser markers with the TTL vision system. This vision system is directly integrated into the laser scanning head and is perfect for validating (reading and grading) DataMatrix codes without moving the laser or the camera.

      This is possible because the light reflected by the part is directed on the camera’s detector in the same exact path as the laser beam.

      The integrated circular light offers a clear view inside the framed area, and the brightness can be adjusted.

      There are two possible scenarios for DMC validation:

      3-axis-head for 3D laser marking

      The system is equipped with the 3-axis head for laser marking large, cylindrical, or irregular surfaces, which allows a constant focal elevation to be maintained.

       

      Mechanically, it consists of a linear motor system, two X and Y rotary devices (allowing the laser band to be moved along the axis), and a third axis for focusing. The laser band passes through a scope equipped with a mobile lens that, in turn, is assembled on a linear traverse. 

       

      The software automatically adjusts the operation. This system allows the focal point of the laser to advance without it moving along the Z axis. Powermark FlyPeak can also be equipped with an Autofocus system, which allows the focal distance to be corrected automatically. It consists of a laser sensor integrated optimally in the LASIT software.
