Amada Miyachi America Inc. recently announced its new LMWS low-cost Laser Marking Workstation, specifically designed for benchtop operation. A major facelift to Miyachi’s LMW2020 and LMW2030 marker workstations, the LMWS features a fresh, Class 1 industrial design, with improved functionality.
The LMWS is designed for marking metals, ceramics, and many plastics, and also has cutting, drilling, and welding capabilities. Requiring only minimal workspace, the updated unit is designed for low volume production and research and development environments in the automotive, medical, aerospace, electronic components, and battery industries. Although the design has been modernized and several features added, the new LMWS is available at a reduced price point.
Standard LMWS models are powered by Miyachi’s popular 10-50W LMF fiber laser markers and use the same graphic user interface for easy transfer from prototype to production phase. Although separable from the base LMF, the two machines are designed to function as one unit.
The motorized Z axis and rotary stage make for easy adjustment of part and focus. The spring loaded manual door opens for 180 degree access to parts and tooling, and the large viewing window allows for visual process monitoring. The LMWS is equipped with F 100, 160 and 254 lenses for marking various parts and sizes.
