Laser Marker Motion Control
March 01, 2012
MONROVIA, CA – Miyachi Unitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of welding equipment and laser processing systems, announces the availability of its new fully integrated LMC1 laser marker motion package, which enables any combination of linear or rotary motion control in up to 4 axes. The LMC1 is ideal for cylinder banding and marking text and graphics on cylinders.
Automated functions such as serialization, step-and-repeat, or laser marking around a cylinder can be easily programmed using the automation build function. Standard stage sizes for single linear or combined xyz axes range from 6 to 18 inches. The LMC1 is available in two rotary options. The direct drive is best suited for banding applications, while the precision rotary stage is recommended for high resolution laser marking.
Fully integrated with standard marker software, the LMC1 laser marker motion package uses Miyachi Unitek’s automation build list to create the required motion profiles, establish serial communication, and set input/output. Event run order can be easily adjusted if required. Rotary marking around a cylinder can be achieved using a unique step and repeat function for text, or a continuous function for graphics.
The motion package also includes a variety of standard homing options, as well as options for programming in absolute or relative units,setting limit points, axis jogging, and axis status indication. In addition to the standard linear stage travel lengths ranging from 6 to 18 inches, custom sizes are also available.
