Integration laser for deep engraving
VIN Marker

These powerful integration lasers offer the perfect turnkey solution for the automotive industry and associated suppliers. Co-developed, tested and used by household-name car manufacturers, they meet all the requirements of Industry 4.0.

For rapid inline VIN and PIN labeling of painted and unpainted metals and materials.

Industrial laser engraver

Developed specifically for 24/7 use, the VIN marker presents a perfect typeface at high speed. It is therefore compatible with all PLC brands and meets the requirements of Industry 4.0

Simple integration

Full safety documentation and fieldbus interfaces, such as Profinet, support integration into new or current production lines on industrial robots, manipulators and balancers.

A robust and compact integration laser,

the VIN Marker is suitable for harsh environments due to its robust housing and IP 54 protection class, while also remaining one of the most compact integration lasers on the market.

Economical and full of performance

Depending on the project implementation, the VIN marker takes just 15 seconds to engrave a complete vehicle identification number (VIN) that includes 17 characters + 2 special characters and moreover, is cheaper than many other systems.

Flexible selection of materials

The use of non-contact laser technology means the VIN Marker can also be used to seamlessly engrave hard metals such as titanium, hardened steel, cast aluminum and other materials. This means you remain flexible in with regard to choosing materials in the future.

Safe working environment

The SafetyCone module also allows the highest level of laser safety (class 1). It simultaneously removes particles and smoke in an effective manner. This therefore means it is not necessary to use protective housing or a control cabinet , allowing you to save space and money! The fiber cable is configured as a “safety fiber”, so that if a cable breaks, the system performs an immediate emergency stop, thereby preventing stray radiation.

The local “SafetyCone” safety module functions under the highest possible laser safety class 1, thereby saving costs, effort and space associated with an additional laser protective housing.

Cleaning station
In order to maintain high quality deep engraving, this station cleans the laser system with safety code, including the focus check and test engraving. Handling is very simple and rapid - remove the system -> clean -> check/test -> insert = done.

Cable length
8.3 m trailing

Technological progress

Efficient, flexible, and ready for the future: The VIN marker allows non-contact processing without the need for time-consuming clamping of materials. The laser technology even allows harder materials to be processed without wear and tear. The innovative solution means you are able to organize production in a more flexible and future oriented manner. Simultaneously, it is possible to eliminate the need for consumables or to perform checks for breakage or damage, both of which are necessary when using other technologies.
