Stroll through halls as an avatar, gather information at the booth, discuss live: At the "Virtual Manufacturing Day" on November 24 an innovative concept makes it possible to virtually experience automation solutions for industrial traceability.
Fast provision, uncomplicated financing models and extended service make it easier to cope with production peaks – In FOBA’s webinar series, laser marking experts offer direct part marking backgrounds and practical application knowledge – Laser marking ensures traceability as well as counterfeit protection and increases patient safety
The new FOBA Y.0200-S model is an upgrade to the existing range of fiber laser marking systems.
In March 2019, FOBA provided the Innovation and Research Center (IFC) Tuttlingen at Furtwangen University (HFU) with a laser marking system. Since then, the system has proven itself in scientific research as well as for demonstration purposes in front of interested parties from the surrounding medical technology industry.
FOBA's novelty offers unprecedented flexibility in terms of line integration, usability and speed
Since its founding in 1969, the tool and machine manufacturer FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving (Alltec GmbH) has developed from a craft shop for mold making into one of the leading international providers of system solutions for laser marking.
El Centro de Innovación e Investigación (IFC) de Tuttlingen de la Universidad de Ciencias Aplicadas Hochschule Furtwangen (HFU) y FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving han puesto en marcha oficialmente su cooperación en materia de innovación para la tecnología médica. En una ceremonia celebrada el 20 de marzo en las nuevas salas del IFC se presentó un moderno sistema de marcado por láser.
The Tuttlingen based Innovation and Research Center (IFC) of Furtwangen University (HFU) and FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving are starting a cooperation for developing innovations in the medical industry. Medical device manufacturers are invited to take part in the kick-off event on March 20, 2019 in Tuttlingen. The event is titled "Help, the UDI is here!" and deals with the technical requirements of laser marking on medical devices of various materials like metals and plastics.
Severe criticism against manufacturers of medical devices and related supervision processes occurred in November 2018, when European journalists questioned the reliability of implants and their possible effects on human health. The German inter-trade organization BVMed put this into perspective and additionally pleaded for an official nationwide implant database. FOBA encourages this approach and considers UDI-codes, firmly applied on medical implants, to be a key-factor for safe traceability of implants.
With the launch of its latest laser marking software version, MarkUS 2.12, FOBA introduces not only a range of advancements in vision-based laser marking, but also a great potential for cost-savings in direct part marking. The update’s major enhancement is the patent-pending full-field imaging technology FOBA Mosaic which enhances automated mark alignment and saves expenses by making product fixtures obsolete.
At the IMTS in Chicago FOBA will showcase its innovative marking feature MOSAIC, a significant improvement in automated mark alignment, for the first time in the US. A reliable vision-based laser marking process is now even feasible when products are placed without any fixtures in the marking field.
FOBA is showcasing the latest innovation in automated mark alignment without product fixtures, a fiber laser for day-night-design and 100 Watt high-speed laser marking.
Proven expertise in compliant laser marking on surgical instruments and implants led to double-digit growth in 2017.
Variable scan head tuning, configurable beam turn unit and various interfaces permit integration into nearly any existing production line.
FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving presents a new generation of laser markers which meet the latest challenging precision and speed requirements for paint removal, such as day-night-design applications. The international market leader, who has decades of experience in the development of process-oriented laser marking systems, worked in close cooperation with worldwide customers on a laser solution which is custom-made for the most precise layer removal.
Two high-throughput laser marking workstations with 2 position rotary tables complete the FOBA M-series
With its compact workstations in the M-Series, M2000-B/P and M3000-B/P, FOBA presents a new generation of flexible laser marking machines.
