FlexLink to Introduce New Laser Marker with Double Sided Marking


Reading time ( words)

The latest advancement in PCB board handling by FlexLink will be introduced at the IPC APEX electronic exhibition in Las Vegas (US) on March 15. The GENIUS 1-LV is a laser marking module with inverter that is compact in size, and equipped with the world’s first 3 axis control - CO2 laser marker. 

The new GENIUS 1-LV module combines the established 1-LX laser marker and the 1-IN inverter into one compact package. Its double sided marking provides permanent identification on PCBs for tracking or recognition and can mark on a variety of non-metallic surfaces. The footprint is small, and the entire module fits inside 900 x 1,600 x 1,800 mm (LxWxH). 

“By integrating Keyence’s ML-Z series CO2 laser head and barrel style camera, the 1-LV provides one of the most efficient systems on the market today.” Says Dick Andersson, Product Manager Electronics at FlexLink.

“The new marker with inverter gives manufacturers the ability to reach higher production rates by allowing two operations in one, making better use of their investment. Thanks to our efficient supply chain and global footprint, customers benefit from short delivery times, excellent after sales services and fast, accurate response to their requests.” Dick Andersson concludes.

From PCB handling modules to turnkey solutions – FlexLink delivers automated production flow solutions that increase total efficiency. To find out more information about the new Genius 1-LV, please visit booth# 3114 at the IPC APEX show or contact us directly.

As automation works its way onto the shop floors, it still struggles to replace humans in the supporting roles, such as designers, purchasers, brokers, and back-office staff. Where automation on the shop floor replaces humans in doing repetitive manual tasks, the supporting roles (at least some of them) require intelligence to understand and utilise information.

Groundbreaking Developments at liloTree

I was introduced to liloTree and Chief Scientist Kunal Shah by Joe Fjelstad. It seems this small company (with Intel as part of its pedigree) has developed a novel ENIG process that just may shake up the regular chemistry suppliers. This new process is described as cost-effective and ecofriendly while completely eliminating black pad and brittle solder joints.
