UV Laser

Marking Freedom

The Meta-C UV laser marking machine can accomodate the most diverse range of materials, marking almost anything and giving you the most freedom. Alternatively, if you need deeper engraving for materials like metals then you may want to opt for one of our fiber based machines.

What is a UV Laser Engraver?

Explaining UV Technology

At the heart of our Meta-C UV systems is our own, proprietary, Diode-Pumped Solid-State (DPSS) UV laser, the ELI-355.

How do UV lasers work?

Put simply, a UV laser breaks the atomic bonds directly instead of ruining the material like most other laser engraving and marking methods. The process is actually known as “cold marking” because it doesn’t cause much heat in the process. UV laser marking is the “go to” option for damage-free, high resolution marking.

In more detail, compared to other common laser wavelengths (532nm and 1064nm), UV lasers output a beam of light at a wavelength of 355nm. They have a high rate of absorption across a broad range of commonly processed materials. When subjected to UV light, the atomic bonds break as opposed to the material vaporising or melting. This reduces the heat affected zone (HAZ) and is the reason why UV lasers are commonly referred to as “cold lasers”; they require less power to achieve a mark compared to other wavelengths of light.

What does this mean?

The smaller wavelength gives rise to a smaller focused spot size and higher fidelity results, without the burn. Meaning you can mark much more delicate or tricky materials with exceptional accuracy.

Conclusion.

Packed with performance enhancing features, the Meta-C UV laser marking workstation is our most versatile system, perfect for a business that needs to mark glass, Tritan, PVC and many other “impossible” materials with true fidelity. Showcasing our 3-Axis (3D) laser head as standard, it will mark curvatures at exceptional speed.

In essence, it’s the ideal solution for those that require the ultimate performance and reliability 24/7. With unrivaled connectivity to external devices such as robots, conveyors, automated handling devices and more, it will fit into your production environment or workshop easily, bringing significant value to your business.

UV Laser Engraver

Specification

Designed, assembled, configured and tested in the UK. Compliant with CE, RoHSII, ISO9001 and FDA regulations, the Meta-C UV is one of, if not the most feature enriched and functional laser marking workstations on the market today.

We choose very high grade components and really do take our time to build this model, which is reflected by the proven track record of near zero faults in the field across a large number of units installed. At this price point we feel that at time of publishing there really is no other system on the market to compete with this Meta-C UV laser marker on a like for like basis…
