FLY LASER MARKING MACHINE
FLY LASER MARKING
is a particular type laser marking on the fly which engrave signs on products in the production line. This method is specialized for marking of products code, date, logo and other necessary information during the production process. In comparison to other conventional methods of printing that need to use ink, fly laser marking procedure does not need the usage of any consumable materials such as ink or paper, in addition, it is a clean method that increase the productivity, significantly. The laser types applied for this purpose are CO2, FIBER and UV. Application of this machine is in Cable and Pipe production lines, food industries, beverage packaging and pharmaceutical industry.
WHY LASER MARKING?
Many involved in the wire marking and processing industry tend to ask, “Why should we invest in a laser marker,” or “what can justify such a purchase?” and Small businesses are especially sensitive to such concerns. Many believe that laser wire marking is for large production only, or that it is too expensive to pay for itself. However, once all factors are considered, laser marking is the best choice compared to other wire marking methods, and regardless of a company’s production requirements.
It is true that ink jet wire markers are very fast and can mark at higher speeds than Laser markers. However they present multiple disadvantages compared to a Laser marking system. Ink jets are a non-permanent marking method. Liquids that touch the markings, such as gasoline or jet fuel, can remove or smear the mark on the wire. As a result, maintenance workers cannot determine what the wire marking is and they have to replace a perfectly good wire, increasing supply costs as well as wasting valuable resources. It can also lead to dangerous results, as a smeared number may be misinterpreted and lead to faulty wiring.Marking with an ink jet also leads to high maintenance costs. Part of the daily maintenance on
Ink Jets involves cleaning the ink applicator, checking if the wire is smearing the ink, checking for fading ink, and changing the cartridge. This leads to very high maintenance costs, increased down time, and daily consumables thus adding to the mounting operating costs. Laser wire markers require no ink as all the marking comes from the laser itself. Laser machines have no daily consumables and maintenance; they offer reduced maintenance time and costs. Meanwhile, ink jet systems must be cleaned every day with consumables that only add to mounting operating costs and serve to frustrate its user.
