Flex Laser Marking Workstation

Designed for batch marking, the Flex is an ergonomic Class-1 laser marking workstation that allows you to select and pay only for the features you need. Operated manually by default, the workstation can also be automated and motorized.

The Flex can even be upgraded to a fully inline & robotic solution to ramp up production. It offers the Laserax advanced laser technology while requiring minimal investment.

Benefits of the Flex Laser Workstation

Flex features

The Features You Need

Pick only the features and options you need, including the laser power, automation level, user interface, dust management, and barcode validation. You can always add other features later to meet evolving marking and operative requirements.

Laser with engine part

Cost-Effective

Benefit from the Laserax unmatched performance while minimizing your investment for part traceability. On equal wattage, our marking speed outperforms the competition every time. Our advanced features also offer the most consistent marking quality with a near-perfect readability rate.

Flex with automotive parts

Up and Running in No Time

The Flex workstation is easy to use, delivered preconfigured and ready for immediate production. Laserax experts provide real-time support and training through our secure remote access. 

Flex with robotic arm

Ready for Inline Integration

Go inline with minimal upgrade in the future. The workstation’s design is robot-ready, allowing you to quickly ramp up production without major investment.

Class-1 Laser Safety Enclosure

Because safety is not an option, we’ve designed the Flex according to international, Class-1 laser safety standards. Operators can see the marking operation through the viewing window in real-time without wearing any protection.

Compatible with Any Marking Location

You can mark parts regardless of their orientation as marking can be performed from the top or sides of the workstation.

Quick Changeover Time

Configure the workstation for different types of parts with the intuitive touch-screen HMI. Operators only need to choose the part in the HMI to automatically adjust the laser.

Main Workstation & Laser Options

Laser Power

The workstation is powered by a fiber laser system that can range from 20W to 100W. Higher wattage options speed up the marking operation and reduce the operator’s waiting time. 

 

Motorized Door

The workstation’s large door can be motorized to simplify the operator’s task. This feature is also required if you want to transform your manual workstation into an automated solution.

In addition to the motorized door’s pressure-sensitive safety edges, you can add an optional light curtain to further improve machine security.

 

Z-Axis Head Adjustments

If you need to mark different parts at different heights, different features are available to adjust the laser head’s Z-axis. Manual or motorized adjustments can be made using a laser pointer that indicates the correct position. Automatic adjustments can also be made using preprogrammed positions in the touchscreen HMI.

 

Touchscreen HMI

If you need to mark several types of parts and materials, our intuitive HMI allows the operator to quickly choose the laser marking process required for different workpieces. The HMI can also be used to automatically control the laser head’s position and avoid manual adjustments.

 

Air-Knife

Air-knives are installed on the lens to prevent the small amount of dust generated by laser marking from accumulating on the lens. Not only does this reduce maintenance, but it also offers a more consistent marking quality.

 

Dust Extraction

Although operators can manually clean the workstation, a dust extraction system can be added to automatically extract the dust and fumes generated by laser marking. This reduces maintenance and helps create a cleaner work environment.

 

Barcode Validation

Our barcode validation feature validates marking quality just after the marking operation. Including a validation system and a Cognex camera, it makes sure all types of identifiers meet your marking requirements, including data matrix codes, QR codes and serial numbers.

 

Custom Fixtures

Our team can create custom fixtures to fix your parts into position in the workstation.

Industrial Marking Applications

The fiber laser marker that powers the workstation is ideal to mark all types of metals. The most common are aluminum, steel, stainless steel, anodized aluminum, magnesium, lead and zinc. To mark organic materials, we also offer CO2 lasers.

When you work with us, our experts adjust the workstation’s laser process to create high-quality and permanent markings that meet the needs of your application.

 

Laser etching of a part

Laser Etching

Laser etching is a high-speed process that melts the material surface to create high-contrast identifiers. The results are black and white bumps whose elevation can reach up to 80 microns.

Laser engraving of a part

Laser Engraving

Laser engraving is the most durable marking process, creating deep engravings by vaporizing the material into dust and fumes. The results are black and white marks that can go as deep as 500 microns.

Laser annealing of a part

Laser Annealing

Manufacturers often use laser annealing with chrome-plated and stainless-steel parts to preserve their corrosion-resistant property. The results are black markings generated through a chemical reaction under the surface.

Technical Support Whenever You Need It

Don’t waste time when troubleshooting issues. In addition to offering on-site support, our experts can remotely fix problems you encounter. Using a secure cloud VPN, they can directly control the marking station’s components (with your authorization) including the laser and the camera.
