LXQ Series
Fiber Laser Marking Systems

The LXQ is a unique fiber laser marking system designed for quick integration in all types of production lines. Offering unmatched speed and reliability, it is ideal for metal marking applications. It can create permanent marks including data matrix codes, QR codes, serial numbers, alphanumeric characters and logos.

Benefits of LXQ Fiber Laser Systems

Fastest Laser
in the Industry

Our optimal configuration for metal parts has been benchmarked multiple times against other lasers and was always the fastest. With up to 100W, our available laser power will allow you to meet the most challenging cycle times.

Unmatched
Readability Rates

We’ve developed unique features that consistently generate high-quality markings. The 3D Autofocus, our most advanced feature, adds up to 3 axes of compensation to offer the highest part-positioning tolerance in the industry.

Cutting-Edge
Laser Expertise

When you buy an LXQ, you get access to customized laser processes developed by true experts. We specialize in adapting laser systems for the client’s manufacturing process. This includes markings that sustain post surface treatments (powder coat, e-coat, shotblast, heat, etc.)

Real-Time
Remote Support

Wherever you are, our laser experts are there to support you on-site or through a secure cloud VPN. Offering remote installation support, training and after-sales support, we take great pride in assisting our customers at every step of the journey.

Maximum Uptime in Production Lines

Our laser is built to mark a new part every 5 seconds, 24/7 for more than 10 years while maintaining its marking speed and quality. To minimize maintenance, we build our systems with robust components and provide the peripherals you need to protect your equipment.

Class-1 Laser Certifications

Laserax offers Class-1 laser certification services to simplify integration and prevent safety issues. You can design your own Class-1 safety enclosures with help from our laser safety experts or integrate our enclosures to get a complete solution.

Straightforward Integration

Each laser system is delivered preconfigured, pre-calibrated and pre-tested with the optimal configuration for your needs. Controlled using PROFINET and Ethernet/IP, the LXQ Series includes plug & play functions, quick start programs for Allen-Bradley and Siemens PLCs, and a web-based HMI.

Laser System Options

Laser Power

Fiber laser markers range from 20W to 100W depending on the marking speed required for your application. Higher laser powers that range from 200W to 500W are also offered as part of the LXQ-HP series.

 

Laser Head

We offer two types of laser heads. 2D heads are used to mark flat surfaces and can easily compensate for surface roughness imprecisions. 3D heads can be used to mark any types of geometries, compensate for bended parts, and mark at a 45° angle. 

Optionally, 3D heads can be used with our 3D-Autofocus for a greater part-positioning tolerance. Laser heads are completely sealed off, protecting them from dust, water, oil particles and other contaminants.

 

Lens Configuration

Our standard lens configuration provides the best optical configuration for most part marking requirements, offering a huge marking field and a long marking distance that helps reduce dust generated by laser marking from accumulating on the lens.

Our advanced lens configuration is used to engrave the most durable markings such as the ones that maintain traceability after shotblasting. 

 

Standard Accessories

The air-knife prevents dust accumulation on the lens by blowing a continuous airstream. This reduces lens cleaning maintenance and guarantees a consistent marking quality.

Our Class-1 open-air enclosures can be integrated in your solutions, allowing you to quickly obtain your laser safety certification.

 

Advanced Features

Our 3D Autofocus automatically detects part-positioning variations and adjusts the marking configuration to consistently generate high-contrast markings. This feature prevents complex laser head adjustments.

Our barcode validation feature monitors marking quality right after 2D codes are marked. Our validation system and Cognex camera can predict which 2D codes will live up to the marking benchmark, even if the parts undergo post surface treatments.

These advanced features can easily be integrated by directly connecting peripherals on the controller’s back panel.

Technical Specifications

The LXQ series offers a wide range of configurations to meet all types of marking demands.

Applications

Our laser systems come configured with the marking process required for your application. If you ever change your manufacturing process, the laser configuration can be updated to fit your new process.

 

Fiber Laser
Engraving System

Systems configured for laser engraving vaporize materials into fumes to create deep engravings. Although metal engraving is slower than other processes, the results are more durable. Fiber laser engravers can engrave steel, aluminum and other metals.

Fiber Laser
Etching System

Systems configured with laser etching can mark metals at high speeds. The laser beam creates black and white bumps by melting the surface. You can laser etch a wide variety of metals, including steel, aluminum, anodized aluminum, lead, magnesium, zinc, and more.

Fiber Laser
Annealing System

Instead of creating surface markings, laser annealing chemically modifies the material’s color under the surface. It is used with stainless steel and chrome parts to preserve the protective layer.

Laser Cleaning,
Texturing, and Hardening

LXQ fiber lasers can be configured for multiple laser processes. Apart from laser marking, they can be used for laser cleaning, texturing and hardening to treat surfaces. All these processes can replace technologies and treatments that require consumables.

Complete Service with Real-Time Remote Support

To provide the best worldwide support, our experts can activate a remote gateway on-demand to gain full control of the laser. Our technical support relies on a secure cloud VPN, a web-based VNC or HMI, and a direct connection to a camera and to the laser system.
