The Y-Series of high-precision fiber marking lasers from Alltec GmbH’s FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving brand is built on a modular platform consisting of nine compact ytterbium lasers spanning power and pulse width ranges. Proprietary scan head technology enables scan-head tunings of High-S for higher marking speeds and High-Q for higher marking quality.

The lasers are well-suited for marking various plastics (epoxy resins, foils), metals (aluminum, steel, titan) and other materials with codes (QR, DMC, bar codes), alphanumeric signs, logos, graphics and images. They are said to be easy to integrate in production lines and laser marking stations, providing tailored solutions for a variety of marking applications. A built-in vision system for in-process imaging combines validation and verification prior to and directly after laser marking.

The 1,064-nanometer wavelength lasers range in power from 2 to 50 W and in pulse width from 1.5 to 200 nanoseconds. Additional features include various optics, a choice of marking fields, two beam-turn versions for straight-out or 90-degree beam exit, a camera system and major customer interfaces (TCP/IP, Profibus) for flexible integration.
