The system features a 160 FLlens (field size 4.33 x 4.33 inches), a 160 FLlensmaxwork piece: 5 H x 12Wx 20 L(inches), 10 watt laser power sup-plied by a Ytterbiumpulsed fiber laser, a proprietary LMT digital scan head, kHz: 0-100 kHz, wave-length of 1,064 nm. The electrical requirement is 110 volts (15 amps). The Cobalt Domina-tor lasermarking system in-cludes a PC, software and an instructional PDF. No on-site training is needed. Options include a 100 Laser Marking Technologies, LLC will introduce its new Cobalt Domina-tor lasermarking system at IMTS. “The economical Cobalt Dominator laser marking and etching system features a European pulsed fiber laser sourcewith increased depth of focus for fast but precise and clean permanent partmark-ing,” said a company spokesperson. “The pulsed fiber laser source can result in cost savings on power consumption over 300 percent compared to YAG. In addition, no chiller is required and there is no routinemaintenance.” The portable table top unit re-quires minimal shop floor space with a machine foot print of 24 W x 28 D x FLLens (field size 2.15 x 2.15 inches), a 100 FLlens max work piece: 7.25 H x 12Wx 20 L(inches), a 254 FLlens (field size 6.89 X 6.89 inches), a 254 FLlens max workpiece: 1.375 H x 12Wx 20 L (inches), a fume/dust extractor (HEPA filtration), amobilework station and a 3-5 yearwarranty on the laser source.
