cw Fiber Laser Marker LF050

Fiber laser marker for mini and micro markings

LF050 is the marking laser for the electronics industry. The continuous wave fiber laser marker was developed for the marking of molded housings of discrete and integrated components as well as printed circuit boards. The marking process is precise, producing a high-quality mark in the shortest possible period of time.

LF050 applies various marking contents on moving or stationary components: Use-by dates and manufacturing data, batch and line numbers, 2D codes and barcodes, graphics and logos or customized data.

With LF050 line widths well below 30 µm can be achieved, enabling character heights of 150 µm and less.
