We have worked with one of our laser system suppliers to create a high speed laser marking system focused on drinkware. We have achieved cycle times from 10 to 60 seconds depending on the material and/or coating type and the size of the image. Most people use very slow moving plotter style lasers with a rotary unit that can only do one cup at a time normally taking a few minutes each to complete. One of the slowest aspects of that set up is having to rotate the cup during marking. We are introducing a special beam steering head that allows us to mark around the curve of the cup without having to turn it by adjusting the focus dynamically during marking. With this feature one of our units is able to do the work of 5 or more plotter systems.
