Large Field Laser Marking
When it comes to marking speed, steered-beam systems are the choice over gantry type laser markers. One of the only limitations of the steered-beam systems is that they are typically limited to a maximum marking field of 7"x 7", meaning that any image larger than the field needs to be shot in sections, or "tiled". This can easily be handled with CNC tables and in many instances we do so at NLE, but the artwork needs to be segmented correctly to avoid slight mismatches. This results in longer set-up and programming times.
This is precisely why Northeast Laser has constructed a large-field steered beam system with a whopping 32"x 32" field size, over 7 square feet! This system allows NLE to mark large panels, or multiple smaller panels, with both speed and precision, giving us an advantage over competitors with smaller systems. When combined with our proprietary rotational motion systems, precision banding of large tubular parts is easily achievable.
This large field marker became so successful that NLE added three more large field YAG and fiber lasers in addition to a large field ultraviolet laser. All five of our large field lasers have 3-axis scan heads. Be sure to have Northeast Laser quote your next panel or long tubular marking job - you'll be pleased with both our pricing and our results!
