Laser marking in the hydraulics sector

Settore-Oleodinamico

The hydraulics sector includes different product categories and marking solutions differ according to the application: direct marking on the component or laser marking on plates to be affixed on it.

The first type of solution is direct laser marking on the component. The second type is marking on the tag to be affixed to the component.

Since traceability is the main requirement of this sector, combined with high productivity, LASIT has developed several solutions both to guarantee the high quality of the marked 2D codes and to automate the processes, thanks to a software interface with the customer’s database.

Laser marking on plates is required when producing valves, pumps and filters that are too large and bulky to be handled and marked directly. To meet productivity requirements, LASIT has developed several solutions, including the Flylabel laser marker, capable of mounting up to 4 loaders, with a capacity of 400 plates each.

Flylabel laser marker

The Flylabel laser marker is ideal for the automatic laser marking of tags. The safe and versatile Flylabel laser system is adaptable to all production needs.

The laser marker can be configured for up to 4 loaders. Each loader can hold up to 400 tags. The Pick & Place system uses a Venturi vacuum to pick and unload the tags. In this way, the tag does not get damaged during pick-up.

The laser marker offers multiple configurations

  • 1 loader with disorderly unloading
  • 2 loaders with ordered unloading (the tags are placed in a magazine in the same position as the loading magazine)
  • 2 loaders with disorderly unloading
  • 3 loaders with disorderly unloading
  • 4 loaders with disorderly unloading

The Pick & Place system is present for each configuration.

LASIT also specializes in designing customized software, which stands out for ease of use and process management speed.

LASIT also specializes in designing customized software, which stands out for ease of use and process management speed. Once the software is configured to the laser marking requirements, the operator’s job is done. The laser marker operates automatically until the tags are unloaded. At that point, the operator repeats the cycle by stacking new tags in the loaders.

For laser engraving on small filters and valves, the laser must be capable of marking on a circumferential arc and an auto-centering system for the component is required. Solutions here can be a long focal length with a flat field lens or a three-axis head for focal distance management.

3D laser marking

The LASIT three-axis head is composed of a system of linear motors, two X and Y rotaries that allow the laser beam to be moved along the axes, and a third axis for focusing. The laser beam passes through a photographic objective equipped with a movable lens, which in turn is mounted on a linear side-shifter. Operation is automatically managed through the FlyCAD software.

The heart of the three-axis head is its optical design, which varies according to the type of application and application requirements: the system can adapt to the size of the working field and the size of the required laser spot.

The scanning mirrors are positioned after the lenses of the photographic objective. The raw laser beam enters the optical system through the dynamic expansion lens. The photographic objective lenses re-draw the Gaussian beam formed by the dynamic expander lenses on the target plane.

The movement of the dynamic expander lenses through the linear side-shifter varies the distance of the focal plane and therefore the dynamic focus. The mirrors (MX and MY) – which are located in the XY scanning module – bend the beam and direct it by angular deflection to scan the work plane.

This feature of the 3-axis head is particularly advantageous on components such as water bottles, glasses, and other rounded items. Although not always necessary, it is good to know that LASIT was one of the first manufacturers in the world to make it in 1991.

The advantages of LASIT in the hydraulics sector

Studies related to this sector are among those of greatest interest to LASIT, both because of the great demand throughout the country and because of the increase in demand from foreign companies due to the scarcity of a competing offer that is able to meet all needs.

In the last 15 years in particular, LASIT has gained a great deal of experience in marking plates, designing 5 different marking systems solely for this application, now sold to over 500 manufacturers.

Flylabel is a laser marking machine made with a plate Pick and Place system that uses a Venturi vacuum generation system: in this way, the plates do not become scratched and the risk of mechanical failure due to contact between the components is eliminated (as occurs with the unloading systems used by other manufacturers).

For direct marking of components, LASIT has specialized in the design of several rotary table laser markers, which mark during machining, increasing productivity, ideal for those with volumes over 200 parts per day.

For those who need to mark several different components and need a single, more versatile laser system, the best solution is the Towermark line, with markers that can be configured with different accessories according to specific needs.
