FOBA, leading manufacturer of precision laser systems for marking and engraving, takes into account that modern industries, from automotive industries through mechanical engineering to the medical sector, need process solutions for product identification. FOBA presents an innovative, closed-loop marking process which includes product validation, marking, optical character verification (OCV) and code-reading.

FOBA showcases its unique vision technology, high-precise marking laser and Laser class 1 workstations for efficient part marking:

The M-Series laser marking workstations handle demanding marking tasks and are capable of marking the new UDI (Unique Device Identifier) and 1D/2D codes used to identify devices. M2000 processes small parts in trays or pallets, larger as well as batches of parts precisely and efficiently. The compact M1000 is designed for the high-quality laser marking of small parts, medium sized components and work pieces and batches.

Integrated in the workstations, the vision alignment system IMP (Intelligent Mark Positioning) supports production efficiency by a unique vision-based marking process: the closed-loop process includes pre-mark verification, laser marking and post-mark validation, e.g. for reading the content of 2D codes and validating laser marks through Optical Character Verification (OCV, checks if every marked character matches the expected content).

FOBA’s flexible, efficient laser marking systems solve demanding challenges in product and parts marking:

- The reliability of the marking process and the constant high quality of marks increase productivity.
- The compact system design is predestined for flexible and fast integration into production lines.
- Permanent, reliably legible marks and Code-Reading function enable easy traceability.
