YOUR CHOICE


Specifying a complete solution is a 10 step process

CHOOSE THE TECHNOLOGY

  • The substrate you need to code, mark or score determines whether you need a CO2, a YAG or a fiber laser.
  • If it’s a CO2 laser you can also choose the wavelength to better mark PET and PVC.
  • CO2: Paper and board, glass, wood, PVC (10,2 micron), PET (9,3 micron).
  • YAG and fiber: Metals,engineering thermoplastics, styrenics olefinics, epoxy resins plastic films (continuous fiber).

CHOOSE THE POWER

  • A range of laser powers is available for all SPA families.
  • Typically a higher speed application will need a higher power laser.
  • Some more difficult to mark substrates will also need a higher power laser.

CHOOSE THE PRINTHEAD

  • If it’s a high speed and/or multi line and/ or complex graphic
    application you need an SPA UHS laser.
  • If it’s a difficult to mark substrate or a scoring application you need an SPA HPD laser.
  • For most other applications an SPA NXT laser is sufficient.
  • UHS: High speed production lines; large, more complex graphics.
  • HPD: Scoring applications; difficult to mark substrates.
  • NXT: Moderate speed production lines; typical coding messages.

CHOOSE THE OPTICS

  • The size of the message or graphic determines the focal length of the lens to be used.
  • A beam expander may also be chosen to improve print quality.
  • Beam expanders are standard for UHS and HPD lasers.
  • A focussing pointer is also available.
  • 3D printing options are available as extras.

CHOOSE THE ENCLOSURE

  •  All SPA lasers are designed, built and tested to IP54.
  • An IP65 option is available for users with damp and/ or wash down environments.
  • High and low temperature kits are available to ensure reliable operations at extreme temperatures.
  • An optical head split kit aids installation in difficult environments.

CHOOSE THE CONTROLLER

  • The easiest way to program and control an SPA laser is to use its handheld touchscreen controller.
  • Alternatively you can use Marca software and drive it from a PC via an ethernet link.

CHOOSE THE ELECTRONICS

  • The electronics module is standard for all SPA lasers.
  • The power supply is modular but its size is determined by the choices of laser (technology, family and power) and optics.

CHOOSE THE ESSENTIALS

  • Several essential accessories are needed to complete most laser solutions:
    • Photocell
    • Shaft encoder
    • Support stand
    • Fume extractor
    • Laser beam protector

CHOOSE THE EXTRAS

  • All installations are different and it is generally necessary to add other equipment to complete a safe and robust installation:
    • 3D printing
    • Enhanced safety
    • Chiller
    • Connector box
    • Workstation
