Black laser annealing

What is black laser annealing?

Black laser annealing is a printing technique that uses laser irradiation to heat up metal surfaces and form oxide films that appear as letters printed in black*.
In contrast to traditional techniques involving metal surface etching, the absence of depressions or burrs keeps surfaces level.
This makes black laser annealing the best printing technique for target objects such as bearings that require high surface precision.

SIMPLE

Wide marking range achieved through
a newly developed optical design [ New design ]

Reliable black laser annealing used to require strict management of the target’s work distance. With the LP-S500W series, you now have ±15 mm ±0.591 in* more flexibility in work distance thanks to a newly developed optics design.
There is no longer a need to do process changeovers for lines producing products of different sizes.
And, because printing is done uniformly regardless of height differences, the LP-S500W series helps improve production reliability.

Visualize the marking range:
New dual pointer marks [ New feature ]

The LP-S500W series allows the operator to visualize the marking range based on the relationship between the positions of the guide laser and laser pointer.
Now you can check target object position and height based on the laser pointer’s marker positions.
Deviation amounts can also be checked. With this feature, equipment setup and maintenance gets a little easier.

High precision marking made simple:
Work distance setting [ New feature ]

For accurate marking on workpieces with different heights, marking sizes, positions, etc.
need modification in consideration of each target’s height.
With the LP-S500W series, marking size and position are corrected automatically by entering the distances to each target object.
Setting for marking target objects of different heights just got much simpler.

Improved productivity:
High-speed black marking [ New design ]

A significant amount of heat energy used to be needed to achieve a sufficiently dark black laser annealing. Featuring a high-output 42 W FAYb laser, the LP-S500W series has twice the output of other models*. Improve productivity with black laser annealing that is faster and that produces darker markings.

TOUGH

Sealed, IP67G rated head enclosure

Superior design

The LP-S500W series features minimum frame seams. Minor seams and screw holes are completely sealed, producing high sealing performance.
This performance is sustained by applying constant pressure to the sealed areas.
Maximum cooling efficiency is also achieved allowing the use of a fanless head for thorough cooling.



High quality protection parts

Seamless sealing materials are used that have low water absorption and excellent oil resistance properties.
Connectors are dust, water, and oil-proof. The lens has a protective glass cover.

What is IP?
IP indicates the degree of protection from water, human body, or solid foreign objects.
This is based on IEC / JIS standards.

IP6X: Prevents chips from entering inside the product
(complete prevention).
IPX7: Prevents water from entering inside the product when it is immersed under water under the specified conditions.
G: Indicates the oil protection structure specified by JIS standards and able to prevent oil drops or oil foam from entering from any direction.
FLEXIBLE

Removable fiber unit enhanced flexibility of equipment design

Panasonicʼs unique laser head design allows the fiber unit to be easily removed from the scanner unit. This revolutionary mechanism is a first in the fiber laser marker industry*1. Because the fiber unit is removable, it can be easily incorporated into equipment for easy installation and enhanced flexibility of equipment design.

[ Fiber unit removability advantages ]

・Smaller equipment, lower costs
・Simpler equipment assembly ・Simpler dismantling when transporting equipment ・Simpler laser marker maintenance

Space-saving small head

The LP-S500W series takes up close to 15 % less floor space with about 20 % less volume*1 compared to conventional models*2. Save floor costs by using more space-saving equipment.

OPERABILITY

Easy operation via a touch panel console

A color touch panel is used so that even persons unfamiliar with machine operation can easily handle it.
An intuitive and easily understandable software package allows the operator to smoothly access any setting screens, and the ergonomically designed console is easy to operate whether hand-held or directly attached to a machine.

Configurable using an office PC

The laser marker comes standard with PC software that allows for easy configuration of print data and layout, via a familiar PC based environment.
Data can also be created on a PC in offline mode, which means that data configuration is possible without stopping the laser marker.
In addition, connecting a PC to the laser marker allows you to check the operation status, I/O status or error log.

Monitor and mouse
Large screen for checking print content

Laser marker setup and operation is made simple by connecting a commercially available monitor and a mouse. When the monitor is placed in an easy-to-view position, the printed content can be viewed from a distance and any changes made to the printed content can easily be verified.

* Operation check is required in advance.
