AREX Q-Switched 10, 20 & 30 Watt Pulsed Fiber Laser Markers
AREX is the ultra-compact pulsed fiber laser marking system designed to service the needs of all industries for direct part marking (DPM) and label marking on all metals and many plastics. It is available with a 10 watt, 20 watt or 30 watt high performance fiber laser source, improved scan head, new rack design and advanced LIGHTER software features. The new AREX laser marker increases performance in terms of power, reliability, quick installation and setup, flexible programming and control.
Available with 10 Watt, 20 Watt
and 30 Watt laser power sources, AREX is very simple
to set up and operate using the standard LIGHTER
laser marker software platform. The operator can
easily create any kind of label, logo, text, data
matrix, bar code for laser marking and traceability
applications. Advanced software functions allow the
laser to operate in many different conditions
including operator attended working stations and
fully automated marking centers.
The AREX laser marker includes an advanced embedded PC for complete marking system control and diagnostics. AREX is equipped with 4 independent axis control (X, Y, Z, rotary axes) to implement multi-layer and rotary laser marking and to change marking head position. A dedicated encoder input is provided for marking on the fly – even in accelerated and non-constant speed conditions. The AREX laser has low power consumption and excellent power efficiency.
|FEATURES & BENEFITS|
SOFTWARE & INTEGRATION
The laser marking software allows system integrators to easily interact with the laser marking system. The Lighter graphical editor creates and edits text strings, shapes, barcodes (e.g.128, EAN/UPC, 2/5, 3/9, GS1-128, RSS) and matrix codes (Data matrix, QR codes, micro QR codes). It can also import logos in vector and raster formats. The Lighter marking kit guarantees key advances in marking software functions and applications such as marking on fly, array marking, grey tones marking, mechanical axis control, rotating axis control and others.
Lighter is scriptable: this means that it can be easily integrated with legacy systems through a wide range of combinations of transmission media, protocols and architectures (master/slave, client/server, ...).
Lighter is extensible: its scripting features can be extended through custom-developed plug-ins to deal with specific integration-related issues (custom components or protocols, patent protected algorithms, etc.).
