Based in Belisce, Croata, the company GRAVURE is a well-respected and long established provider of engraved measurement scales and general engraving services. Their products are manufactured with high precision from a variety of materials including aluminium, brass and stainless steel to name but a few. A family business founded in 1992 and still owned/operated by Mr Nikola Galic the company utilises a number of engraving technologies including several CO2 laser engraving machines.
The core products that GRAVURE manufactures are a series of metal measurement scales primarily used in the machinery industry. These scales are generally denominated by millimetres and centimetres and vary in length up to 600mm. Obviously, the marking of such products must produce clearly readable markings with high precision.
Originally manufactured by using conventional CNC and paint filling the manufacturing process was very time consuming and somewhat prone to error. By utilising a CO2 laser with metal marking solution the process was improved but technically did not constitute a true engraved product, which is what the company is famous for. Furthermore, such metal marking solutions are expensive, wasteful and somewhat inefficient in application.
Lotus Laser Systems Meta C1 XL 30w fiber laser marking workstation. The Lotus Meta C1 provided Mr Galic with solutions to most of his marking problems; higher accuracy, a truly engraved finish, high quality marking with precision and a good contrast. In particular because of the very high beam quality produced by the 1µm IPG fiber laser source within C1 it’s possible to mark aluminium with a dark finish. The XL format provides for an enlarged Class 1 enclosure allowing for an X2 programmable axis, which allows the user to split long plate artwork into sections that can be marked one at a time allowing for much bigger areas to be processed than a conventional galvo laser would allow. Production times have been massively reduced; on average using C1 is 10x faster than previous processes.
THE CUSTOMER says
“Lotus modified the equipment to cater for my specific requirements and without any significant additional costs. The machine was working immediately within my production department after just 1 day’s installation/training. I am very impressed by the support of Klio, the exclusive distributor for Lotus and by Lotus themselves who have shown care with supporting Klio to ensure my needs are met. The system is one of the best equipment purchases I have made.”
