The customer would like to have a laser marking system to mark five bearing caps with one number from 1 to 5. These numbers will then be read.
The entire part weighs 50 kg, for a footprint of 410 x 260 x 370 millimeters. The system must have a complete carterisation and should comply with the current regulations concerning the use of Class 4 lasers.
The system should read the elements once marked to validate the marking. If a part is non-compliant, the system will go into default and inform the operator via a non-compliance light indicator on the button box. The part will then be moved away from the normal flow.
The marking pace will be relatively important.
The system consists of an integrated i103 L-G laser with a camera. The system is integrated in a production line controlled by a PLC requiring use of field buses (Profibus). The laser is mounted on a digital Z-axis.
