Some "serious" laser-marking with a fiber-laser ...

... for an (ex-) customer request for yesterday I was "forced" to extend my fiber laser by an additional "endless" X-axis for engraving punching strips (have lasered approx. 30m).

The stepper driver can be seen in the rear compartment at the bottom left - for the time being I fixed it "provisionally" to the aluminum plate with double-sided tape (will probably stay in forever smoking smiley ):




So far, with two manual stops, I've only been able to cut and engrave up to the size of the small 150mm hooked liner - but I would have liked to be able to cut-engrave the 300mm steel liner as well:




Then I searched my basement for free linear axes -- the one in the back has 300mm travel, the long spindle 500mm - I'll test it next time:

... I'm optimizing the setup for marking 150mm steel rulers (this is/was a forum action in "Peter's CNC-Ecke").


Here the video of the 2nd test -- [www.youtube.com]


And the results so far (the steel ruler is still from the last action):

... here a more actual video from laserengraving a hook-ruler -- [www.youtube.com]

It's maybe 10x faster with the 30Watt-fiberlaser than with the previous 20Watt.

And here the actual result too (in comparison to a common 300mm-steel ruler):
