With the "green lasers“ (532 nm wavelength), FOBA offers marking systems with low heat impact. The new vanadate laser sources are available with 7- or 14-watt laser power. Providing outstanding speed and accuracy, they mark substrates that do not show satisfactory marking results using other wavelengths. The materials affected include many white and transparent plastics, glass surfaces, highly reflective metals, or combined material parts.
Also red or orange plastic surfaces, which often only allow for poor marking contrasts due to existing color properties, obtain perfectly legible codes and characters. On special plastics such as UHMWPE, HDPE or PMMA, the marking quality achieved is impressive just as well. The green laser also makes laser additives unnecessary in most cases.
The FOBA V.0071-gr and FOBA V.0141-gr marking systems close the gap between UV (355 nm)- and fiber (1,064 nm)-laser systems and address the most challenging marking applications.
