The LF101/LF201 is a compact, versatile and highly reliable laser for industrial direct part marking applications on a variety of metal, plastic and various other hard-to-mark materials in the electronics, tools/metal and automotive as well as automobile supplies industries. 

The 10 and 20 Watt pulsed fibre laser marking systems quickly apply complex variable data (ID matrix/bar codes, logos, characters, [serial] numbers, individual data, etc.) on both moving and static products. Additional advantages include low maintenance and ease of integration with the system's dovetail joint mounting interface and a multilingual user interface. 

Whether through engraving, high contrast color change, material removal or annealing – the solid-state laser marking systems LF101 and LF201 deliver high resolution and brilliant marking quality.
