Fiber laser LF100/LF200

 

Whether on stationary or on moving products, LF100 and LF200 can be used to apply complex and variable data such as logos, codes, characters, (serial) numbers, customized data, etc. Thanks to the dovetail guide and the multilingual user interface, they are ideally suited for integration into lines, machines and facilities. Impressive: Their integration-friendly smallness and premium-quality laser markings are suitable for engraving, a color change, color removal or annealing marking.
