Laser Marking Software FOBA MarkUS

Convenient and powerful graphic design interface

Send Request


FOBA MarkUS is both a convenient graphic design interface and a high-performance piece of software for the control of the laser marking system that produces the markings. The intuitive application is the control center for all the marking-related applications (2D) that are found in most of FOBA’s systems. Marking contents are created quickly and efficiently. Premium-quality laser markings are applied precisely. As an option, the software can be equipped with the camera systems IMP and Point & Shoot. Additionally, MarkUS contains the axis control and supports grayscales for the creation of impressive grayscale markings. MarkUS is compatible with many of FOBA’s laser marking systems and laser marking machines, and is available in several languages.



User-friendly and flexible

Comfortable and intuitive GUI, high-performance laser marking software; fast creation and precise output of marking jobs

Traceability and integration of camera systems

Integration of the IMP and Point & Shoot camera systems for marking alignment; integration of the MOSAIC software function for marking without fixtures; component and marking inspection and code readback for traceability.


2D Code, QR Code Laser marking and code verification with FOBA MarkUS

FOBA’s MarkUS software reads and verifies codes: Serial barcodes, as well as 2D codes such as the QR and Datamatrix codes, are read within the marking field and compared to its expected content. The code reading option comes with a verification tool that provides means of passing or failing codes based on different factors such as the read content or the mark contrast. 


Laser Autofocus from FOBA

The Autofocus for easy and fast focusing process! A single click operation that works with almost any finished or colored materials! It increases productivity, turns a 15 minutes job setup into a few seconds and reduces operator errors and scrap.


Laser marking software

Creation and output of marking contents. MarkUS includes the axis control.


Integrated vision

For part recognition, mark alignment, inspection and code validation, the software can be optionally equipped with the IMP and Point & Shoot camera systems.



Enables marking without part fixtures (patented). Operators place products anywhere under the laser. A mosaic-like image, created in one second, validates its presence and identity and is used to align the marking content relative to the part location. Only available with the IMP camera system.


Technical specifications



Interfaces MarkUS Designer, MarkUS Runtime, MarkUS Administrator
Axis control* Support for up to 5 axes (X, Y, Z, rotary axis and swivel axis)
Radial segmentation* Marking (texts, logos) on the circumference of cylindrical objects (rings, jewelry; arced, concave, convex). Allows the laser to maintain focus to the surface while marking and minimizing distortion caused by the surface curvature.
Grayscale support* Layout, design, editing of grayscale marking contents, e.g. graphics, images
File support  Import functions for the most common file formats: BMP1), JPEG1), TIFF1), HPGL, FOBA’s proprietary MCL, AI (up to 10 except 9, CS1,CS2,CS3 [without text objects], com- pressed/ binary/ PDF not supported), DXF (up to AutoCAD2015)
Languages English, German, French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Czech
Support lasers IR, UV, CO²
Point & Shoot WYSIWYG camera system for visual direct mark alignment on a screen image of the part (hardware is included, one USB port is required). Image tiling is included
Intelligent Mark Positioning (IMP) WYSIWYG vision system for the precise position detection of parts/ to-be-processed Positioning (IMP) areas and automatic alignment of marking, engraving or finishing (hardware is in - cluded, two USB ports are required). Pre and post mark verification is included. Post mark verification will pass fail on mark position, orientation and scale.
Barcode reading Datamatrix [ECC200], QR-Code, BC128 A/B/C, BC39
Remote access TCP/IP, Profibus or serial communication


 * Additional and/or special hardware required

1) Available with Fcom based grayscale lasers only
