Arex 400 Fibre Laser Marker
The AREX 400 is a high performance Fibre Laser Marker designed with fast, high quality marking, even in the most difficult working environments. With the smallest scanhead on the market along with a highly robust design the AREX400 is a standout system when small footprint and reliability are key.
The AREX400 is not only a standout due to its size and reliability, it boasts a whole range of features that set it apart at the forefront of modern fibre laser marking systems including; a powerful integrated PC for fast processing of complicated marking programs, improved heat management for increased efficiency and near silent operating volume. This system now also incorporates the patented Datalogic GREEN SPOT which can be configured to give operator immediate and effective feedback directly on the marking area.
Available in a full range of power options from 10W through to 50W including a 20W MOPA version the AREX400 family has a system to suit every application requirement and throughput speed. The AREX 420MW with MOPA technology allows for greater control of the beam profile and pulse duration, this allows for excellent marking results across a wider range of materials. Making the AREX 420MW the absolute best choice when it comes to fast, accurate and high contrast marking on vastly different materials.
AREX400 Key Features and Benefits
- Range of powers from 10W to 50W to meet every operational need
- Smallest scanhead on market for integration into production lines (IP64 rated)
- Excellent marking quality on metals and plastics, especially with MOPA technology
- Marking On-the-Fly capable for moving lines
- A number of modern communication protocols available for PLC integration and control
- Datalogic GREEN SPOT for immediate visual feedback from marking area
The AREX400 also has full integration with the MARVIS read and verification system and the autofocus range finder, meaning that even off-line systems can be highly automated with minimal operator input required.
- Laser Marking
- CW and Pulsed operation modes, which means fibre laser technology can be used for cutting, marking, cleaning, welding, additive manufacture and cladding with very low running costs. The fact that the beam can be created and delivered via a flexible fibre optic cable makes this technology easier to build and integrate - and less susceptible to knocks and bangs. Fibre lasers use a silica glass fibre that is doped with a gain medium such as Ytterbium or Thallium. These elements that are added / or doped in small quantities absorb photons of a low wavelength from a diode pump source , and then decay and emit a longer wavelength. It’s the creation of this longer wavelength that allows laser processing to take place. The fact that this all occurs within a fibre means that a high quality high power beam is created that remains tightly confined to a small spot size. This small spot size is well suited for performing cutting, marking and additive manufacture etc. where high energy concentrations are required. Defocusing the laser spot also allows it to be used for welding, cladding and other processes. Laser Lines can advise companies interested in this technology with trials to assess the suitability of this technology for a wide variety of applications.">Fibre
