Miyachi Unitek Corp., a leading manufacturer of welding equipment and laser processing systems, announces the availability of UV (ultra violet) laser marking systems, capable of producing high quality marks on plastic and metals. UV lasers can produce small characters on a wide array of materials and are ideal for marking plastics used in the medical and packaging industries. UV laser markers also offer extremely controlled metals marking, which results in the most reliable corrosion-resistant marking for medical and aerospace materials.
UV laser’s 355 nanometer (nm) wavelength offers unique marking characteristics including fine printing on electronic components, marking breakers, medical tubing, high contrast HDPE marking, and corrosion and passivation resistant marking of stainless steels. Depending upon the application, the systems can be configured to include such features as motion, vision corrected marking, barcode mark read and verification, custom user interface, custom enclosures, and tooling.
The UV laser marker systems feature a rugged, low maintenance design, which offers a low cost of ownership by optimizing consumable lifetimes. The system’s fully integrated motion options offer up to four axes of motion. Any combination of linear and rotary axes can be easily programmed from the marking software. The system’s “mark on-the-fly” capabilities facilitate marking high quality text and graphics on moving parts.
