Rocklin Mfg. Debuts Portable Fiber-Laser MarkerFebruary 4, 2021
Rocklin Manufacturing, Sioux City, IA, has introduced the MobiLase all-in-one, portable fiber-laser marking unit housed in a 45-lb. rolling suitcase. While laser-marking units typically are large, heavy, stationary machines, users can take the lightweight MobiLase directly to the part, rather than transporting parts to a laser-marking station. This eliminates costly downtime and investments in elaborate contraptions to mark large parts.
MobiLase units feature a 30-W fiber laser and a 100 by 100-mm marking window, and can mark most any material including plastics, steel and other metal alloys, as well as precious metals. The 7-lb. handheld applicator is equipped with a trigger and two bracket options for marking a variety of part shapes. These brackets also enable rapid focusing from a consistent, repeatable distance, further optimized by the laser pointer simulator.
User-friendly software on the touchscreen PC, embedded in the suitcase, enables a wide range of programmable and potentially intricate markings, including numbers, letters and characters; time and date; barcodes, 2D codes and QR codes; and images, logos and symbols.
