Laser Mark’s Company is now the integrator of choice for Lincoln Lasers line of polygon scanners by developing the a working interface to the new SPI 2MHz 50 watt laser.
The SPI MOPA’s ability to fire up to 2000 kHz allows high power and cost effective laser pulses to keep up with the incredible speeds and accuracy of Lincoln’s PolyTech and HyperScan heads.
Scan speeds for traditional 2D and 3D scan heads top out around 20 meters per second with most processing being done well below 6 meters per second.
Polygon scanner operate by bouncing laser beams off multiple mirrors rotating at high speed.
The HyperScan head from Lincoln Laser offers the accuracy of a galvo scan head at POLYGON scan speeds of hundreds of meters / second!
Even at scan speeds approaching 200 meters per second, the Hyperscan head can achieve spot resolution of <3μm and repeatability of <± 10μm in the X and Y axis.
The SPI EP-S J series type laser has multiple wave forms and the ability to pulse up to 2000kHz for use on plastics and films. And the SPI laser has sufficient pulse energy to mark directly on raw and plated metals at very high speeds.
Using a cost effective MOPA Laser, the Lincoln Laser provides the Highest Speed, On Demand Printing without any consumables, nozzles, UV curing or inks. Laser Mark’s Company can bring this capability to your production line.
As the following video shows, at 1500 kHz, the 50 watt air cooled SPI EP-S J can etch two labels of text and QR code on to anodized aluminum in 200 milliseconds and uncoated steel at 250 milliseconds. Don’t Blink!
