The samples were marked with two different fonts to provide a “contrast” versus “cycle time” comparison. In addition, per the customer’s request, the two samples were marked on the contoured surfaces without any rotation. A narrow single line font was used in the first sample producing a cycle time of 1.21 seconds. The second sample was marked with a bolder font and resulted in a cycle time of 3.13 seconds. Both samples were marked with a 20Watt Fiber Laser Marking System using a 160 mm lens (approximately 170mm working distance). Further improvements can be made to either cycle time and/or boldness should the customer decide to do so using different laser settings and font types.
