         New Products             Laser Marking Cards and Laser Marking Software

 

Our marking software has been designed to meet the needs of all types of users of laser marking systems.  The software was developed to be a retrofit package for existing systems, or as original software on new systems. The package provides significant advancements over previous laser marking control systems, while remaining extremely user-friendly. It's an object oriented, graphically interactive, PC control system providing a user the ability define and execute laser marking jobs. Multiple hardware interfaces are supported giving the software the ability to control most Nd:YAG and CO2 laser marking systems. 
  
Unlike some marking software, the operator never has to remember what fonts and logo's need to be loaded for a particular job. The software automatically performs all required graphic loading. The software does not require users to learn any programming languages or special codes, and yet the software provides all of the flexible, graphic control users are accustomed to, including radial marking, aspect control, character spacing, angular rotations, and full justification. Text to be marked can be fixed or variable. Variable text can be retrieved at runtime from a variety of sources including, the keyboard, a bar code reader, and disk files.  Automatic date coding and alphanumeric serialization are included as variable text types. Fonts include laser engraving fonts and Window’s True Type fonts. True Type fonts can be vector filled using user specified density, angle and kerf. Graphics (sometimes called "logo's" on other systems) can be imported from a large variety of common vector formats.  All graphic features are either menu controlled or graphically controlled via the mouse and keyboard.
 
The software can create various objects such as barcode, DataMatrix, text, simple geometrical objects (such as line, rectangle, round-corner rectangle, polygon, circle, ellipse etc), complex graphic objects (such as PLT & BMP files), automatic date coding and alphanumeric serialization.      
 

There are three types of D/A cards (interface cards) and relevant software: LMX series, LMM series and LMC series. The main menu of the software is shown as follows:

   

1. LMX Series Marking Cards and Software
