Bodor i5 Laser Cutter
As Adwin specialize making prototype for some of the world’s leading manufacturers so we decided that it would be beneficial for us to purchase our own Laser Cutting machine to help reduce the lead times for all of our customers.
Whilst manufacturing prototype parts you need to be able to make small adjustments to the design because of this investment we are now able to make alterations in minutes.
With a lot of options to go for we chose the Bodor i5 Laser machine is because of its heavy bed which makes the machine more stable whilst cutting in comparison to other machines. The laser Machine also has a high-quality, electrical software control system which gives the Laser a more precise cut which is needed for some of the smaller parts we manufacture.
This laser engraving technology consists of a high frequency beam generated from a laser source. This beam is then amplified and directed towards a part to be marked via a series of rotating mirrors. The reaction that takes place inside the material marked consists of 2 distinct processes:
- Engraving: a groove is created in the first layers of the material
- Marking: so a carbon layer actually inside the material becomes visible
Fiber laser marking is widely recognized as one of the most effective marking technologies, and offers a multitude of solutions for any industry. Our Laser Markers are able to engrave any of the parts that we produce either with a part/batch numbers or individually permanently engrave a serial number or bar code/QR Code which will be traceable back to date of manufacture and material batch etc. We are able to mark, Mild Steel, Stainless Steel, Phosphor Bronze, Copper, Aluminum and Sterling Silver.
