Features:

  • topex diode-pumped Nd-YAG laser (approx. 16 W)
  • Protective laser enclosure as per laser protection class I
  • Marking area 180x180 mm
  • Loop-controlled feed unit
  • Stepping motor-driven feed handling
  • Sensor system for different types of cable lug
  • Pneumatic cutter for cable lug separation
  • Data generated at the laser station
  • Implementation of customer-specific data interface
