In the latest installment of my Laser Marking Series for Photonics Online, Large Field Marking with Steered Beam Fiber Laser Marking Systems, I had the chance to discuss some of the challenges inherent in large field marking.
Steered beam fiber laser marking systems have difficulty created clear marks on very large marking fields. In order to achieve large marking fields with steered beam fiber laser marking systems, the information to be marked must be sectioned into “tiles” that are no larger than the marking field. This article discusses the use of galvo drive systems in large field marking and how it is done with good quality hardware and software.
