HYBRID laser

HYBRID laser, versatile laser marker for plastic engraving and metal engraving
The 1064 nm HYBRID laser marker is a high speed laser perfect for applications requiring a great versatility in terms of marking materials, from plastics to any kind of metals.
  • Extraordinary laser peak power
    The Hybrid laser head is characterised by its peak power and extremely short pulse duration. Thanks to its high peak power of up to 150,000 W per shot, which is 15 times more powerful than a standard fibre laser marker at the same energy level, it offers a unique interaction on plastics for high-contrast direct marking.
  • Outstanding quality permanent marking
    The small diameter of the laser spot is combined with a very short pulse duration of 8ns, 10 times shorter than a standard fibre laser marker. The direct marking quality is perfect, with no halo or distortion due to heating. It is the ideal laser marker for applications requiring thin permanent marking and perfect aesthetic results, such as the horology and jewellery sectors.
  • Versatile identification marking laser
    All types of permanent marking finishes are possible thanks to the power range of the HYBRID laser marker. It is the perfect identification marking machine when you have a wide variety of parts made of different materials, from hard metal to soft plastics.


Technical Specifications

Different HYBRID laser powers available
10W: perfectly suited for contrasting direct marking on plastic.
20W: very high productivity in plastic engraving, marking twice as fast for all types of metals, even the most reflective ones.

Laser classification
Class 4 Laser system, possibility to switch to Class 1 for integration on a station or equipped with Mini inline module.

Monobloc design, easy integration of the laser head
No sensitive cable connections in system integration

Thanks to its integrated HMI display, it provides access to self-diagnostic, updates, history of faults, maintenance functions and simplifies the implementation in all positions and visualisation of tasks for the operator.

Highly communicative laser head
Our HYBRID laser marker is compatible natively with a wide range of communication protocols: Ethernet TCP/ IP, RS232, standard 8 I / 80, Dedicated I/O via DB-37 and optional industrial communication protocols like Profinet & Ethernet IP.

Robust laser marker
Working temperature up to 40°C, built-in and washable filter for air cooling, protection against scratches and deposits.

Autofocus to mark on multilevel

This module guarantees you a precise and consistent HYBRID laser marking without any mechanical adaptation when you change the type of part.

It simplifies your integration:

  • No need to re-adjust the laser head focal distance, even when you are marking various types of parts with different heights on the same line.
  • It offers more flexibility on your production lines, giving the possibility to have parts with a difference of up to 120 mm height without moving the HYBRID laser.

Just select the right marking job and you are ready to switch to another product line.

dpss laser for permanent marking

This module is combined with a distance sensor to make an Autofocus. The plastic engraving laser detects automatically the part surface and adjust the focal distance without any calibration or waiting time:

  • Guarantee of optimal marking quality regardless of the flatness of the parts or their shape.
  • Constant contrast & depth. Boost your productivity with this high speed laser.
  • Instant refocusing: less than 100ms to change focal distance.
  • Reduce your marking cycle time.
Metal marking laser machine on production line

This HYBRID laser marker also manages cylindrical surfaces, angled planes and multilevel surfaces without any head movement: - Instantaneous marking on complex part with the possibility to mix curved surfaces and angled planes at different heights up to 120 mm amplitude. - No character deformation. - Uniform contrast over the entire engraving area.

Embedded software on laser marker

This HYBRID laser marker can work autonomously in a production line and generate all data necessary to your identification markings without the need of a computer.

It can serialise your parts instantaneously, generate unique ID with complex marking content (timestamps with multiple formats, variables, counters, shift codes) and update the text and 1D/2D codes predefined in your templates.

This powerful electronic embedded in the laser head can communicate and centralise information coming from your PLCs and database in real-time, saving you time while increasing your productivity.

Lasertrace : our marking and identification software

Developed by Gravotech and enriched by numerous application experiences, Lasertrace is a unique software specially designed to create the marking files to be loaded in the high speed laser marker.

It includes a graphic composition to add text, logo and all kind of codes like Datamatrix in your marking templates. You can describe your marking process according to specified rules: the actions (marking blocks) to be carried out, the sequence of execution and the possibility to implement a wide choice of transitions (output activations, camera blocks, variables, etc).

Vision manager - marking control

This package helps you read codes and texts during the plastic engraving and other material marking process, to ensure that the marking has been done properly and keep a 100% traceability of your products:

  • High performance: reading camera with lighting, auto-focus system and protective lens.
  • Easy set up: you are a few clicks away to complete control of the 1D/2D codes and your text (OCR fonts).
  • Quality control of the code visibility (Grade).
  • Monitoring of the marking quality by triggering large choice of operations: send status info and history to the PLC, activation of alarms, activate actuators to reject faulty part.
Mini inline - permanent and deep laser engraving
