Rocklin Manufacturing introduces MobiLase, an all-in-one, portable fiber laser marking unit housed in a 45-lb rolling suitcase. While laser marking units are typically large, heavy, stationary machines, Rocklin says its lightweight MobiLase enables industrial strength laser marking to be taken directly to the part—versus a laser marking station—and completed anywhere. The innovation reportedly eliminates costly downtime and investments in elaborate contraptions to mark large parts.
Featuring a 30-watt fiber laser and a large, 100 x 100-mm marking window, MobiLase delivers fast and durable laser markings on nearly any material ranging from plastics, steel, precious metals, among many others. The 7-lb handheld applicator is equipped with a trigger to start marking, plus two bracket options for ease of marking various part shapes. These brackets also enable rapid focusing from a consistent, repeatable distance, which is further optimized by the laser pointer simulator.
User-friendly software on the touchscreen PC embedded in the suitcase facilitates a wide range of easily programmable and potentially intricate markings, including:
- Numbers, letters, characters
- Time and date
- Barcodes, 2D codes, QR codes
- Images, logos, symbols and more.
The MobiLase laser source features up to a 100,000-hour marking lifetime and is fully supported out of Iowa. Rocklin Manufacturing says it is launching MobiLase at an introductory price of $9,900.
