Industry: Ad Specialty
Mark Type: Surface laser etch and material cutting
Material Type: Spent Grain
Mark Content: logo and text
Laser: 50 Watt CO2 Laser Engraving
The photo shows a coaster that Jimani marked on and cut out of a sheet of material that was made from the spent grain of a beer brewery. This was part of a recycling project by graduate students at a local university. They developed a process by which they could make sheets of material using the spent grain from the beer brewing process. The recycled grain was processed to make sheets of material that had a similar consistency to very thick cardboard. We used a CO2 laser marking system to mark a logo on the coasters and then a different set of laser parameters in the same operation to cut the coaster out of the sheet of material.
CO2 Laser Marker: The Langolier
The ongoing costs to operate and maintain the Langolier CO2 laser marker are very low since there are no consumables and the laser has a long service life.
The CO2 laser marking systems from Jimani are ideal for marking:
- paint removal
- organic materials
Laser etching, laser engraving effects, and cutting are strengths of the CO2 system.
Components of the Langolier CO2 Laser Marker include:
- Universal CO2 laser source (20-50 watt) with integrated diode guide laser
- Prolase 10 Laser Marking Software
- Scanlab hurrySCAN High Speed Scanheads
- Scanlab RTC-5 Interface and I/O Boards
Network ready Industrial PC
- Beam Expander
- Langolier Laser Controller
- 10,600 nm optics
The Langolier CO2 laser marker is compatible with the standard Jimani work stations as well as available for custom integration both into you production environment and into a custom enclosure.
