The fibre laser for the ceramic industry
From sanitary ware through medical engineering products to high-quality tableware: the marking of ceramic products requires a reliable process which does not damage the sensitive surfaces and applies long-lasting markings. It is also important to work with a laser that can withstand the tough conditions prevalent in the ceramics industry: insensitivity to dust and durability in long-term operation are decisive selection criteria. The new generation of Nova-f has been developed specifically for the contract marking of spray paint and films in the sanitary ware industry. It also stands out thanks to a laser diode service life of 100,000 hours. The laser contains all the components important for laser marking and – just like the universal laser from Mobil-Mark, the Quasar – can be put into operation immediately and without additional protective measures being necessary thanks to certification with laser protection class 1 and integrated marking software. Simply connect to the local power supply and the marking process can begin!
Small laser, major advantages
The laser has a small and handy design, with a footprint of only 520 mm x 430 mm. Yet despite its small size, the laser offers numerous advantages: an unlimited number of marking jobs can be saved directly on the PC in the laser. In addition, it is possible to change conveniently between 15 marking jobs thanks to a job selection switch on the device. A further advantage is that a standard 220V socket is sufficient for operating the Nova-f. The laser can be used for marking areas up to 120x100 mm using different optics. If necessary, a touchscreen for direct control can be connected via sockets on the unit or a Windows PC can be connected by remote desktop function to control the marking software.
