LXQ-HP Series – High Power Fiber Laser Marking & Cleaning System
The LXQ-HP is a high-power single-mode fiber laser system designed for system integrators to succeed when facing the most challenging industrial applications. With a maximum power of 500W, it is the go-to product for laser marking, laser cleaning and laser texturing applications requiring a very short cycle time.
Benefits of the LXQ-HP Fiber Laser System
When Time Means Money
As the most powerful single-mode laser system on the market, the LXQ-HP provides unmatched performance when cleaning or slightly texturing surfaces. Perfect for demanding inline applications, it combines the effectiveness of a pulsed single-mode fiber laser with the speed offered by its 500W of available power.
Unmatched Cleaning and Texturing Precision
Unlike hand-held laser cleaning, automated laser cleaning allows you to precisely focus the laser beam on a specific area. Our advanced autofocus technology also offers unmatched precision and repeatability by accounting for various part geometries and positioning variations.
Dynamically Adjusted to the Part’s Geometry
Clean moving parts without compromising quality. Our patent-pending dynamic autofocus system can be installed on a conveyor or mounted on a robot or a gantry system to clean parts with various shapes and sizes on the fly.
With a long focal length and up to 8m of fiber cable, the LXQ-HP can be mounted on a robot with maximum flexibility. You can also position the laser head in any orientation to mark, clean or texture any surface.
Easy to Integrate
The LXQ-HP comes preconfigured, pre-calibrated and pre-tested with a configuration optimized for each application. It also includes plug & play functions (such as a web-based HMI and standard peripherals), quick start programs for common PLCs (Allen-Bradley and Siemens) and many more features that speed up and simplify integration. It is also controlled using standard protocols (PROFINET and Ethernet/IP).
Class-1 Laser Certification Service
Our laser safety experts can help you simplify integration and prevent safety issues. You can work with them to design custom enclosures for your solutions. If you prefer a complete solution designed by our experts, you can also integrate our standard and certified Class-1 enclosures.
Real-Time Remote Support
If you encounter problems during an integration, having access to laser experts can save you time and help you keep your customers satisfied. Laserax experts are available on site and through remote support whenever you need them, whether it’s for remote installation support, training or after-sales support.
Laser Machine Options
The LXQ-HP offers between 200W and 500W of laser power for high-speed applications.
2D heads can easily compensate for surface roughness imprecisions on flat surfaces. They set a high standard with a depth of focus of 6 mm, which prevents complex laser head adjustments.
3D heads add the focusing range needed to process any types of geometries and compensate for bended parts. They can also be positioned at a 45° angle.
With up to 8m of fiber cable length, our heads can easily be mounted on robots, gantry systems and so on, allowing you to work over a large area if needed. They are also certified IP-67, offering advanced protection against dust and liquids.
The standard lens configuration is optimal for most applications. Not only does it offer a huge working field, but the lens is at a good distance from the part to prevent the dust generated by the laser process from accumulating on the lens.
The advanced lens configuration is used for applications that require deep engravings. For example, some laser texturing applications require a high roughness. Some laser marking applications also need 2D codes that maintain traceability after shotblasting.
The air-knife is installed on the lens, blowing a continuous airstream that protects it against dust accumulation. The lens needs to be cleaned less often and you obtain results that are much more consistent.
Our optional Class-1 enclosures offer you a quick way to guarantee laser safety.
The HMI control panel provides direct access to laser marking parameters. You can:
- Manually adjust the laser marking zone, scale the identifiers, edit them and more
- Enter the manual operation mode to run tests or calibrate the laser
- Display information such as the system status, the operation mode and the alarm history
Our dynamic autofocus system allows you to clean moving parts of various shapes and sizes (on-the-fly technology). Parts are cleaned with unmatched precision and at the speed of your manufacturing process. .
Our 3D Autofocus system identifies variations in the part’s positioning and adjusts the laser accordingly to repeatedly generate optimal results. This feature can save you time and reduce the cost of your solutions by removing the need for complex laser head adjustments.
Our barcode validation feature includes a precalibrated Cognex camera and a validation system. You can validate code quality just after laser marking, and algorithms can predict which codes will meet your marking requirements if there are post treatments like shotblasting and e-coating.
Advanced features are configured by the Laserax team so that they’re ready to be used. During integration, you simply need to connect them on the controller’s back panel.
