µMeta is a Class 2, 1µm fiber laser marking workstation. Although it’s our entry level model, µMeta is one of our most versatile marking lasers. It’s primarily used for marking metal parts with codes, serial numbers, logos, etc.
Many different types of business use µMeta but predominantly general engineering, job shops, general engravers and trophy suppliers are among our most frequent customers for µMeta.
µMeta incorporates a 20w or 30w MOPA laser, or a Q-Switched fiber laser that’s manufactured by SPI or Raycus, both are the leading manufacturers of fiber laser technology in their respective fields.
A MOPA fiber laser iis far more flexible than a Q-Switched equivelent, allowing for 16 pulse widths. This means more flexibility on material marking and the types of marks you can achieve. SPI are renowned for their quality globally, and as specialists in laser technology we have a lot of faith in their systems.
A Q-switched pulsed fiber laser is well suited to the majority of metal marking applications. The price/performance of this laser allows a wide range of applications at the lowest possible price point. Where the application deems it necessary we offer other types of laser within our Meta-C model, which is significantly higher priced.
µMeta is designed as our entry level 1µm laser marking workstation and as such we subsidise the price of µMeta to make it affordable to a greater number of customers. For more demanding applications we have other models with wide ranging laser source options.
The access panel of µMeta allows a full 180 degree access to the work area. In ‘maintenance mode’ the interlocks are defeated and the door will remain up, allowing operation in Class 4 mode. While Class 4 operation is technically possible Class 4 operation is not a function of our ‘intended design’ under CE regulations, so it is not recommended.
