  • MarkUS Software

  • Overview
  • MarkUS is both a convenient graphic design interface and a high-performance piece of software for the control of the laser marking system that produces the markings. The intuitive application is the control center for all the marking-related applications (2D) that are found in most of SPDLaser’s systems. Marking contents are created quickly and efficiently. Premium-quality laser markings are applied precisely. As an option, the software can be equipped with the camera systems IMP and Point & Shoot. Additionally, MarkUS contains the axis control and supports grayscales for the creation of impressive grayscale markings. MarkUS is compatible with many of SPDLaser’s laser marking systems and laser marking machines, and is available in several languages.  

    MarkUS software reads and verifies codes: Serial barcodes, as well as 2D codes such as the QR and Datamatrix codes, are read within the marking field and compared to its expected content. The code reading option comes with a verification tool that provides means of passing or failing codes based on different factors such as the read content or the mark contrast.

  • Technical Specifications
    Interfaces MarkUS Designer, MarkUS Runtime, MarkUS Administrator
    Axis control* Support for up to 5 axes (X, Y, Z, rotary axis and swivel axis)
    Radial segmentation* Marking (texts, logos) on the circumference of cylindrical objects (rings, jewelry; arced, concave, convex). Allows the laser to maintain focus to the surface while marking and minimizing distortion caused by the surface curvature.
    Grayscale marking* Layout, design, editing of grayscale marking contents, e.g. graphics, images
    File supports  Import functions for the most common file formats: BMP, JPEG, TIFF, HPGL, FOBA’s proprietary MCL, AI (up to 10 except 9, CS1,CS2,CS3 [without text objects], com- pressed/ binary/ PDF not supported), DXF (up to V11)
    Languages English, German, French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Czech
    Support lasers IR, UV, CO²
    Point & Shoot WYSIWYG camera system for visual direct mark alignment on a screen image of the part (hardware is included, one USB port is required). Image tiling is included
    Intelligent Mark Positioning (IMP) WYSIWYG vision system for the precise position detection of parts/ to-be-processed Positioning (IMP) areas and automatic alignment of marking, engraving or finishing (hardware is in - cluded, two USB ports are required). Pre and post mark verification is included. Post mark verification will pass fail on mark position, orientation and scale.
    Barcode reading Datamatrix [ECC200], QR-Code, BC128 A/B/C, BC39
    Remote access TCP/IP, Profibus or serial communication

     * Additional and/or special hardware required
