From 10-15 September 2012, FOBA, international market and technology leader of systems and integrated solutions for laser marking and engraving, will present its new generation of laser marking workstations at IMTS 2012 in McCormick Place, Chicago, US.

At booth no. N-6534, FOBA will showcase its laser-based solutions for varied applications in manufacturing technology and willintroduce its new workstation series for laser marking, the FOBA M-Series.

The new workstations are perfect for economic high-precision parts marking. Available in two sizes and with three models each - with work table, rotary table and expandable to five axes - the FOBA M-Series enables the processing of multiple part sizes. The M-Series allows customers to stay flexible as the novel workstations adapt to the customer's laser process and not vice versa. The different workstation models are dimensioned for maximum use of space and possess optimal machine accessibility. Additionally, all M-Series workstations are height-adjustable and possess a control panel that can either be mounted on the right or the left side of the workstation.

Combined with FOBA IMP (Intelligent Mark Positioning), the rigid M-Series workstations enable precise and repeatable markings and guarantee process reliability. FOBA IMP detects work pieces and their position automatically and aligns the marking accordingly. Also changes regarding the component geometry and position or defective parts are identified and the processing will be adjusted accordingly. Thus, the use of IMP avoids incorrect markings and leads to less scrap.

FOBA offers a broad line of systems and workstations for laser marking, coding and engraving applications in manufacturing technology: from OEM laser systems ready to integrate into production lines through to workstations for stand-alone operation and high-precision laser engraving machines. FOBA's system and machine solutions combine high-performance equipment with extensive application experience and excellent service and support to satisfy demanding customers all over the world.
