The labeling specialist Murrplastik Systems presents the new LM 1 Premium laser marking system, which enables automated and cost-effective in-house production, even for medium-sized companies.
Laser-marked metal or plastic identification tags are widely used in the automation industry. For example, for labeling wires, cables, terminals, operating and signaling devices or for switching and media devices. Medium-sized companies previously shunned in-house production with a premium laser system, since acquisition and operation were significantly more expensive compared to outsourcing. Murrplastik now introduces the LM1, a premium laser marking system that not only scores with its low purchase price; The low operating and maintenance costs make automated laser marking affordable even for companies without high labeling volumes.
Murrplastik presents the LM 1, a laser system that can be used to produce abrasion-resistant quality markings on a variety of base materials. The high quality of laser marking of plastic results from a chemical reaction in the marking material itself, “carbonization”. It is a color change, which is only generated by the impact of the laser beam moved through a mirror, and the laser marking is thus made contactless.
As a result, the label is razor sharp even with the smallest fonts and graphics. Due to the “carbonization” the labeling is resistant to UV light, acid, oil, mechanical stress and other environmental influences. Signs made of polycarbonate and polypropylene (PC / PP), anodized aluminum, stainless steel or laser foils can be labeled with a maximum size of 120 x 120mm².
From the production floor to the office.
Optionally, the LM1 laser system may include additional accessories such as a suction and filter unit. The air-cooled laser marker LM1 is quite compact for its performance class.
Automated labeling is now affordable.
Identification labels can be labeled automatically with the LM1 laser system. Signs made of PC or PP are stacked directly in the insertion hopper. For laser applications made of aluminum, stainless steel or laser foil material, the identification labels are first placed on a variable base plate and then inserted into the hopper. If different print materials are contained in a print job, the respective number is ensured by separating mats when changing the type. The conversion from one print job to another is done in a few simple steps.
The labeled labels are stacked in a removable container. Upon request, this collection container can be replaced by company-specific storage system boxes.
The handling with the proven ACS software is intuitive.
The handling of the LM 1 laser station is very easy. The LM 1 can be operated via USB port or Ethernet via a PC and the proven labeling software ACS. The user uses the ACS software to determine the optical density of the label and has all numbers, symbols, logos and fonts under control. Intuitive ACS software makes it easy to move from a printer system to the LM1 laser marker. Existing projects can be imported in a short time.
Minimal acquisition and operating costs.
Especially when using a laser printer, the hidden costs reveal themselves. Because in addition to the purchase price, the operating costs must be taken into account. Here, the new LM1 laser marking system can convince with its minimal operating costs across the board. On the one hand, the LM1 laser marker does not require any consumables – on the other hand, the system operates almost service-free, so the maintenance effort is minimal. The energy consumption is exemplary. The power consumption of the LM1 laser marking system is just 0.5 kW.
Labeling solutions from a single source.
As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of labeling systems, Murrplastik offers a complete system for all marking tasks. In addition to different labeling technologies ranging from thermal transfer printers to various inkjet printers to the new LM 1 laser marking system, Murrplastik offers perfectly matched marking materials. Most of the materials are halogen-free, comply with the V0 brand classification, are temperature-resistant up to 284° F and have railway and vehicle registration certifications.
