FOBA's laser integrated vision system IMP (Intelligent Mark Positioning) is the heart of the market‘s simplest and most complete laser marking process solution called HELP, Holistic Enhanced Laser Process. With the concept of integrating the vision system directly into the marking system, we offer our customers a unique, simple and broad part marking workflow solution that ensures the highest production performance.
The patented IMP high-speed camera system automatically detects work pieces and their positions and aligns the etching accordingly, ensuring precision and repeatability. IMP consistently provides premium-quality markings and produces a measurable reduction in the number of defective products. This makes the camera system ideal for automated series production.
Automatic mark alignment
Many users have to strictly comply to defined processes, particularly if the mark position accuracy has a significant added value. IMP validates the part integrity, measures its position and automatically aligns the marking relative to the part.
IMP provides the capability to achieve premark and/or post-mark verifications. Pre-mark verification prevents users from marking already marked parts. The post-mark verification validates that the mark placement is accurate. This feature also helps check for poor contrast marks that can be caused by an early degradation of the laser performance or a change in material characteristics.
Patented and proven
- Automatic part alignment, laser processing and control
- Consistently highest marking quality: precise, repeatable, process-reliable
- Measurably fewer product rejects and mis-markings
- Faster production, greater efficiency and productivity
Laser marking automotive buttons with IMP
The Video shows how the patented vision solution IMP detects the position of car buttons on a tray, and how IMP aligns mark accordingly.
Laser marking thermoplastics with repeat accuracy
High productivity with consistently high marking quality: Laser marking with integrated vision reduces scrap, lowers setup and changeover costs, minimizes operator errors, and reduces holder costs.
Fields of Application
Ideally suited for repeatable and automatic serial production, especially with regard to the space, automobile and electronics industries, the construction of tools, machines and metals and the medical technology sector.
