Laser marking manufactured components supports traceability and identification but as parts continue to increase in size, casting and pressing companies’ parts cannot fit into a standard sized Class 1 laser enclosure. To solve this, SIC Marking UK has launched Funnel Integrated Technology (FIT) which combines all of the necessary components and settings to mark larger parts in a simple, safe and economic way within the customer’s production line and budget.
The FIT tunnel encloses just the marking area and the compact design means it can be retrofitted into a robotic cell.
Supplied as a unnel style Class 1-compliant enclosure, the secured laser marking system can be integrated with a single connection to a PLC. It can be mounted to a robot head for presenting to a stationary part – or fixed in position allowing the robot to present the part for marking.
A maintenance drawer is provided for lens cleaning and built-in shock protection. The FIT tunnel can be adapted with three window sizes available as standard: 24 x 32mm, 100 x 32mm and 100 x 100mm. Custom sizes can also be accommodated.
FIT is available as a basic chassis or with protective covers, a cooling system, electrical cabinet and tooling. There is also an optional integrated Cognex vision system for 2D verification / validation or 3D lens for marking curved or angled surfaces.
