FOBA introduces two high-throughput laser marking workstations with 2 position rotary tables for the efficient and ergonomic processing of geometrically complex work pieces of varying sizes as well as small and large batches of parts.

The automated laser class 1 rotary table workstations M2000-R and M3000-R come with a programmable Z axis and a 2 position rotary table with either 670 mm (M2000-R) or 950 mm (M3000-R) diameter. Other axes as well as camera systems, exhaust units, interfaces for the integration of client processes and a customer interface directly on the rotary table can be added as an option. The turntable stations are perfect for marking smaller and larger parts of any kind precisely, fast and economically. The robust machine construction ensures a fail-safe processing with highest marking quality.

This way of part loading and unloading via a two-position rotary table ensures that various applications can be executed more efficiently and without using additional beam safety light barriers. Parts are loaded and unloaded while another part is being laser marked. Loading times have hardly any influence on machine productivity. This lets machine utilization and part throughput increase. This consistent prevention of costly non-productive times pays off – especially when high quantities are manufactured.

These high-throughput laser workstations are especially suited for marking all kinds of serial parts such as day/night design parts for vehicle interiors, metal components, tools or medical products and devices such as implants or surgical instruments.

Designed for both standing and seated work, and adaptable to individual needs, the M-Series workstations provide maximum ease of use and meet all requirements for ergonomic working: to reduce work fatigue, the working height of the machine can be individually adjusted (stepless electrical height-adjustment with lowest position at 1,844 mm and maximum position at 2,144 mm). The control panel (with monitor, keyboard and computer mouse) can be mounted on the left or right side of the machine, so the machines can be configured for left or right handed people alike.

To ensure accessibility, major control elements and status displays are directly integrated into the front of the machine; where also loading and unloading take place. Sensors for part detection and status LEDs add ease-of-use and make both loading status and processing progress for both table positions manageable at any time. Light barriers at the place of loading/unloading ensure maximum safety at work; the wear-free double bulkhead (no seals) ensures more efficiency and permanent laser safety.
