3D/Additive/Alternative Assembly Automation

Québec City, Canada – To provide part-to-part traceability for automakers and suppliers, Laserax has developed three laser marking machines for use in harsh industrial environments, such as manufacturing plants for automotive parts, diecasters, extruders, and foundries.

Open-Air Machine (OAM)

The OAM used in automated production cells is serviced by an industrial robot. The robot holds the part in front of the machine during the marking operation. When the marking is complete, the robot can resume the production cycle.

Rotary Table Machine (RTM)

The RTM for automated laser marking uses a feeding system for continuous production. As marking of one part starts inside the laser safety enclosure, the previously marked part is unloaded and brought by a robotic arm to the following station. The robot can then load the RTM with a fresh part to be marked.

Rotary Table Workstation (RTW)

The RTW is manually fed by an operator; however, everything else is automated. It ensures reliable and consistent markings. The safety of the operators is ensured through best-in-class machine design.
