Rofin has released CUBE, which is a platform for the integration of a range of laser sources such as solid-state, fibre or diode lasers for marking.

The CUBE can be configured to work within a multitude of marking applications, including within a production environment or a  research laboratory.

The CUBE laser marking system provides non-contact, abrasion-resistant, permanent marking onto many different types of material with predictable and consistent results. The laser can be used to generate alpha-numeric content, vector or rastered graphics, grey-scale, bar codes or data matrix codes.

Built upon a solid precision milled base, the system guarantees highly accurate and stable work-piece processing. The flexible configuration of the CUBE also provides a number of options in the way in which the system can be used. By adding a galvo scanning head and servo positioning axes, the system can be used to process large parts, or large trays of smaller parts, quickly and precisely. The system also incorporates automatic rise and fall doors, on three sides if required, which enable the system to be automatically loaded and unloaded by a robot as part of an integrated production facility. Equally the CUBE can be used as a stand-alone system which can be easily loaded and unloaded manually via the automatic doors.
