UV laser marker V.0020-uv

UV laser marker for high-contrast markings on highly sensitive products

The FOBA V.0020-uv ultraviolet marking laser applies high-contrast markings on sensitive products. As the vector scanning laser colors the product’s surface photo-chemically, the heat that results from laser marking is so little that even highly sensitive products and materials remain undamaged: from aircraft cables and translucent or colored tubes for various industries through medical plastics for invasive applications or flame-resistant plastics for electronic housings to glass.

With a typical pulse duration of 20 ns and a beam diameter of 10 µm, V.0020-uv only colors the surface (instead of foaming the material) so that the product itself remains undamaged. This is how permanent laser marks that are capable of sterilization can be applied on medical technology products such as catheters or insulin pumps, and this is also how filigree and brilliant laser marks can be applied on glass without breaking it. With V.0020-uv now also silicones or white polyamides can be laser marked. It is this capability of marking highly sensitive and previously unmarkable materials damage-free that makes FOBA’s UV laser marker a pioneering one.
