Designed for lean manufacturing, Amada Miyachi America’s benchtop LMWS laser marking workstation features a Class 1 industrial design and improved functionality over the company’s LMW2020 and LMW2030 models. The easily configurable workstation is capable of marking metals, ceramics and plastics, and also offers cutting, drilling and welding capabilities.

The compact, updated unit is well-suited for low-volume production, and research and development environments, and although its design has been modernized and several features added, it is available at a reduced price point, the company says.

Standard models are powered by Miyachi’s 10-50-W LMF fiber laser markers and use the same graphic user interface for easy transfer from prototype to production phase. Although separable from the base LMF, the two machines are designed to function as one unit.

The fast and precise, motorized Z axis and rotary stage enable easy adjustment of part and focus. The spring-loaded manual door opens for 180-degree access to parts and tooling, and the large viewing window allows for visual process monitoring. The LMWS is equipped with F 100, 160 and 254 lenses for marking various parts and sizes. The fume extraction port with flexible tubing also makes adjustment to different parts easy and fast, the company says.
