The MD-X Series hybrid laser marker combines the advantage of both fiber and YVO4 laser oscillation methods in one cutting edge product. This unique laser oscillation method combines the best attributes of YVO4 and fiber laser makers. Years of Keyence laser development in solid state and fiber oscillators has led to the invention of the hybrid oscillator powering our new MD-X Series laser marker.
Keyence manufactures both laser markers and code readers, focusing its attention on providing systems for tracking and traceability. The MD-X Series laser marker has a built-in 2-D code reader and verifier to accurately mark and check 2-D codes without using a separate device. Verification and grading of a marked 2-D Code can be performed via the laser markers built-in camera. The data from this result can be output via I/O or data communication to signify a Good or No Good mark.
The built in camera makes it possible to perform automatic focusing without the use of any external devices. This is possible even when targets may not be placed at the exact same focal length from the laser and eliminating the need for external tooling. Additional production costs can be kept to a minimum while increasing efficiency and throughput.
The MD-X Series has an IP64 enclosure rating on the marking head, an environmentally resistant specification that is usually only typical in fiber laser technology. This and many other environmental specifications of Keyence laser marking systems makes it possible to operate with high precision and accuracy in nearly any production facility.
