What is a MOPA Laser and What is it Used For?

Fiber laser markers, be it pulsed or continuous wave, have prevailed in nearly all industries for marking products permanently and in high quality. The fiber lasers that are used for industrial part marking usually are either Q-switch or MOPA lasers. As of today, Q-switch lasers are more common because they have already existed on the market for a longer time. That is why they are sometimes called “standard laser”. But due to their high flexibility, MOPA lasers like the FOBA Y.0201 and Y.0201-DN, are an interesting alternative for many applications.

Facts About Data Matrix Codes for Product Identification (Part #1)

A data matrix code, or in short simply “DMC”, is a 2D code. In many industries DMCs have become the preferred way of encoding data, e.g. in automotive and medical industries. Machine readable data matrix codes are marked reliably, efficiently, permanently and abrasion-resistant with laser marking machines. But what do I need to know if I would like to mark products with data matrix codes? Read More

Medical Forceps: FOBA’s Medtech Europe Trade Show Sample

At the Medtech Europe, starting tomorrow in Stuttgart, FOBA will demonstrate laser marking on medical forceps. Visitors can get this trade show sample and see in live demonstrations, how vision-based automated laser positioning enables accurate marking results, even on products that are totally out of alignment from their expected positions.
