Amada Miyachi Europe has just announced the LMWS Laser Marking Workstation, specifically designed for benchtop operation. In a major facelift to Amada Miyachi’s LMW2020 and LMW2030 marker workstations, the LMWS is available as an operator-safe Class 1 or open Class 4, with improved functionality and the company says it offers the widest range of marking capability in its class.
The LMWS is ideal for marking metals, ceramics, and many plastics, and also has cutting, drilling, and welding capabilities. Requiring only minimal workspace, the updated unit is suited to low volume production and research and development environments in the automotive, medical, aerospace, electronic components, and battery industries.
Standard LMWS models are powered by Amada Miyachi’s 10-50W ML fibre laser markers and use the same graphic user interface for easy transfer from prototype to production phase. Although separable from the base LMF, the two machines are designed to function as one unit.
The motorized Z axis and rotary stage make for easy adjustment of part and focus. The spring loaded manual door opens for easy 270 degree access to parts and tooling, and the large viewing window allows for easy mark monitoring. The LMWS is equipped with F-Theta 100mm, 160mm and 254mm lens options for marking various parts and sizes. The LMWS features an optional compact motorized rotary for marking cylindrical parts, as well as an optional programmable Z-axis.
