Macsa’s laser systems were chosen because the laser coding unit was capable of provide reliable coding on the tag. It was also provided an operator friendly handling system for the tag that holds and guides it through a fully enclosed class 1 coding system. The solution proposed was dust resistant, user friendly and easy to use.

Dust Free: We designed a fully enclosed system that utilises the air outlet on the Extractor to pass 100% recyclable air around the laser and control panel, giving the system a completely dust free rating in a high dust environment.

User Friendly: A touch Screen with exclusive Kwiklok tag specific Operator interface was designed to give the operator full flexibility on the production line to carry out any adjustments required to move and change the code without having to stop the production line.

Easy to Use: We designed the trolley to incorporate the control panel and extractor which also includes the recycling of the air from the extractor back into the laser and control panel.
