Applied Laser Engineering (stand 7E18) will also be introducing its new state-of-the-art 500 watt harmony laser technology at Labelexpo Europe 2017.
This new laser system operates in both CW and pulsed modes meaning that metals, ceramics and polymerics can all be engraved with the one laser. This gives the end-user great versatility and an abundance of application options including flexo, anilox, embossing, gravure, optical films, security, and printed electronics all on the one machine with a single laser.
Laser engraved functional topography describes a surface that has functionality provided to the surface by the laser. This functionality could be to hold ink, for flexo, gravure or anilox rollers, or to create a surface used for embossing or imprinting a substrate, printed electronics, optical films, anti-microbial and low-friction surfaces are further examples of functional topography
