Non-contact, Metal Barcode Printing System
The LL28XX marker uses a moving, focused CO2 laser beam to darken the specially coated white surface of metal tags, producing high definition black characters, barcodes, graphics, and logos. Text and barcode data may be downloaded from a host computer, or sequenced automatically after keyboard entry of starting data. The resultant rugged tags will survive high temperatures found in slab, bloom, and billet casting mills, as well as hot strip mills.
Tags are loaded into the marker in 300-foot (91 meter) long rolls weighing approximately 30 pounds and automatically feed through the laser beam marking area. When printing is finished, the tag exits the marker for easy breakoff at the nick-notch point. This printer typically produces high-temperature and medium-temperature tags that are 0.008" (0.2 mm) thick stainless steel. The tags usually have one or two holes or slots for attachment via nailing, welding, wiring, hog-tying, or other methods, depending on the product.
The small size of the LL28XX marker allows easy placement virtually anywhere, even in cramped steel mill pulpits. When placed on wheels, the LL28XX becomes a fully portable marker, transferrable from pulpit to pulpit by one person.
The LL28XX is available in three basic configurations. The 60W LL2860, 80W LL2886, and 100WLL28100 are all designed for quick cycle times, a large amount of information, and long barcodes. All three configurations permit unattended operation with batch printing. Barcode lengths up to 24" (610 mm) are standard. A unique optics design eliminates the expensive flat field lens common in many light-duty markers. The single galvanometer design reduces longer term maintenance and component replacement costs
