UV Laser Marker

UV Laser Marker for high-contrast markings on highly sensitive products

Send Product Request


FOBA's ultraviolet marking laser V.0042-uv achieves high-contrast markings even on sensitive products. The heat input remains minimal during marking, as the laser acts photochemically on the product surface with reduced edge heating. With a pulse duration of 5 to 35 ns and up to 4 watts of power, the V.0042-uv marking laser produces a color change without much foaming of the plastic. As a result, the material surface is hardly affected. FOBA's UV Laser Marker also enables the marking of materials such as silicones or multi-colored polyamides.


Applications that benefit from this gentle marking technology include cables made of TPE as well as transparent or colored hoses made of PVC for various industries. However, medical plastics for invasive applications through to flame-retardant polyamides and flame-retardant polyamides such as PA-66 for electronic housings can also be reliably marked. UV Laser Markers therefore also provide catheters or insulin pumps with permanently durable and sterilizable markings.


Thanks to its extremely compact design, the laser head is not only compatible with all M-Series Machines, but can also be easily integrated into existing production lines. The individual configurability of the V.0042-uv enables flexible adaptation of the laser head to the specific conditions of the production environment: e.g. variable cable outlet, two orientations of the writing head and the horizontal or vertical installation position of the laser head.
