Markem-Imaje, the global provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions and industrial marking and coding systems, has unveiled its SmartLase F250 fiber laser printer.
The SLF250 is the first new product launched following Markem-Imaje’s acquisition of laser coding and marking solutions specialist Solaris Laser.
Packed with features, the SmartLase F250 comes industry 4.0-ready with an array of industrial interfaces that enable its safe and seamless integration with even the most complex plant automation and manufacturing execution systems. Once integrated, the intuitive user interface delivers an increase of up to 20 per cent in operating efficiency, according to the company.
The new, compact and high-performance 20W fiber laser aims to deliver high-quality permanent coding on high-density substrates.
The company said it created the solution as customers are increasingly adopting laser marking solutions for more of their product identification and packaging applications.
Markem-Imaje said the SmartLase F250 is the ideal solution for modern fast-paced production lines.
The SmartLase F250 reduces operational expenses through fewer line stoppages and by eliminating the requirement for ink. The SmartLase F250 also delivers chemical-free production that is environmentally friendly and helps businesses meet sustainability compliance goals.
Markem-Imaje laser product marketing manager Alex Koudriashov said the SmartLase F250 is ideal for businesses seeking best-in-class code quality at high-speed where space is at a premium.
“The SmartLase F250 combines speed and efficiency with simplicity, safety and sustainability. The F250 is a printer designed with the future in mind. Fewer line stoppages and the fact it uses no ink can radically reduce OPEX, while the elimination of chemical components makes it ideal for companies who are looking to reduce their impact on the planet,” he said.
The SmartLase F250’s controller, printhead and touchscreen user interface also come with at least IP55 ingress protection level for long and reliable operation in harsh, dusty and humid conditions.
It also comes equipped with the MIVA (Markem-Imaje Virtual Assistant) which provides customers with remote troubleshooting, while 24 or 48 hour on-site service level agreements (SLA) are available in most markets.
