Key features

Speed: This simple and robust, CO2 30W laser coder has the ability to code up to a maximum marking speed of 360 meters per minute, which will cover a wide range of production lines.

Materials: The majority of materials can be effectively marked with a laser coder, including glass, metal, plastic and paper/card.

Rating: The IP54 rating of the stainless steel and anodised aluminium enclosure makes the unit secure from water splashes from any angle.

Warranty: With its two-year laser tube warranty, the coder ensures optimised production output and reliability, whilst reducing total cost of ownership.  

Consumables: With no consumable the total cost of ownership is reduced.

Connections: The laser coder operates without interconnections, so the risk of accidental damage to the cables by twisting or chemical reaction is eliminated.   

Target industries: the SL3 laser coder operates in a wide range of production environments but its abilities are especially suited to the beveragepackaging materialshome and personal care, and OEM installations.

Software: Using the latest LinxVision® Software the SL3 laser coder provides easy access operator toolbar with a range of fonts, options and operating languages.

Installation: Weighing in at 21kg, the single unit integrates easily onto production lines and systems making it simple to install. The space required to house the coder, together with the installation time needed, are minimised, meaning less upheaval for already pressed production schedules.  Its multiple mounting positions and orientations, together with flexible user interface options including a choice of operating languages and password protection levels, gives total control of the laser.
