Visitors of the second international FOBA In-House Exhibition and Conference will discover how manufacturers meet the various requirements for the identification of their products in a reliable and efficient way
FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving completes its M-Series of compact workstations for industrial laser material processing: With the M2000-R and M3000-R stations, FOBA introduces two high-throughput laser marking workstations with 2 position rotary tables for the efficient and ergonomic processing of geometrically complex work pieces of varying sizes as well as small and large batches of parts.
The new FOBA C.0101 and C.0301 are powerful CO2 laser markers for direct part marking. They replace the current Alltec LC100 and LC300 models, build on their predecessors’ field-proven laser technology and come along with productivity, flexibility, smooth integration and easy handling.
The new 10- and 30-watt CO2 laser markers are designed for cost effective industrial laser marking applications. The high resolution marking heads apply consistently permanent and high-resolution marks which is a key issue for reliable traceability and counterfeit protection.
