Industries Develops World’s First Portable Hand-Held Laser Marking System
Lake Mary, Florida – October, 2005 – PTG Industries introduces its latest
innovative Portable Hand-Held Fiber Laser Marking System that
produces permanent, legible marks on a variety of materials.
This new laser system is a safe, reliable, no-maintenance,
Direct Part Marking alternative for Nd:YAG and Nd:YVO4 lasers.
The system is more reliable than current Nd:YAG lasers, delivering
50,000 hours of maintenance-free operation. The extremely
versatile unit can be easily moved for convenient operation to
any location and is capable of marking materials ranging in
size from miniature to considerably large equipment that
wouldn’t fit into traditional marking systems. Easy installation
and intuitive software allow for a quick start-up.
Components include a Q-Switched Fiber Laser, Scan Head, PC
Controller, Power Supply, Marking Software, and a Red Diode
Pointer for easy setup. The software used by the Hand-Held
Laser is the most advanced marking software available,
providing a simple interface for fills, automation, graphic
importers, parts handling, machine control, transformations,
quality, and more. The laser requires only a low voltage power
source (110/220), and has an excellent beam quality with a
small spot size for precision marking. The Hand-Held Marking
System can be optimized to meet any production need.
The portable system is ideal for military, large industrial
equipment, and applications such as Alphanumerics, Logos,
Graphics, Part Numbers, Schematics, Serialization, Matrix
Codes, Barcodes, Paint Removal, ITO Removal, Backlit Buttons,
and much more. The United States government and Home Land
Security recently initiated programs incorporating laser
technology as an essential part of present and future defense
applications. In the private sector, government contractors
are now using lasers to comply with strict governmental
regulations. PTG Industries envisioned this opportunity and
successfully introduced and delivered applications compatible
with military standards, while continuing to perfect our laser
technology for future commercial and defense applications.
The Hand-Held Laser System can process a wide variety of
materials including stainless steel, aluminum, carbide,
polycarbonate, titanium, nickel, PVC, plastics, rubber, iron,
chrome, painted metal alloys, multi-coated materials, and
Our Handheld system is available today, providing reliable,
portable Fiber Laser Technology starting at only $65,000.00.
Now the automotive, defense, medical, aerospace and other
industries have an affordable solution by providing permanent
marking capability for product identification and traceability.
Systems are also available on a rental basis for trial
