For simple, safe and efficient operation: A graphical operator interface with optimal functionality for maximum process reliability
FOBA's Advanced Operator PlugIn (AOP) is a focused graphical user interface for FOBA laser marking equipment. The PlugIn is directly integrated in FOBA's MarkUS marking software, and has been designed for improving production efficiency, reducing costs and increasing throughputs during the laser marking process in the medical technology field as well as various other industries.
In the AOP, the essential steps of the marking process are clearly visualized in order to ensure a quick, intuitive, secure and almost error-free operation of the FOBA laser system. The simplified graphical user interface ensures for the fast, safe and reliable laser marking of all sorts of products, parts and devices. Protected from incorrect entries, a barcode scanner is used to transfer all job related data into the laser marking system. The marking process is fully visualized, including a part preview, clear operator instructions, marking process status information and direct feedback of code validation and mark verification results. Thus, the AOP helps to accelerate production processes and to reduce scrap during part marking which can add up to savings in the range of 40,000 Euro per year (given a 3 shift operation with 5 job changes per shift).
