We were contracted by HexMag to build and automated laser marking system. We used a Rofin Powerline F20 and designed the PLC program to interface to a GUI that we also designed for automatically incrementing the serial number and keeping track of all the stats. The PLC controls the 1 axis robot arm and claw to place the part under the laser head for marking. The feeder controls the placement of the part and feeds it one at a time. The PLC also controls a fume extractor. Please watch the video below to see the machine in operation.
