Our MOF Series
Standard Machines for Laser Customization of Closures, Covers and Bottle Caps
The machines in the MOF series are our specialists in laser marking. Fast, precise and, where necessary, secure against tampering. The primary field of application is internal and external marking of bottle caps. We hold the patent for this process. Despite being compact, easily mobile stand-alone machines, they achieve the same performance data as a fully automatic installation. And for a significantly smaller investment. This makes the laser marking of competition-winning codes, for example, economical even on relatively small batch sizes. In short: this machine works, lasts and pays off. Custom piece for custom piece.
Security against Tampering
Error checking and security against tampering are extremely important, especially when applying competition-winning codes and for serial numbers. The MOF series enables genuine post-production checking. Using the optional camera module and control software, all processes and safety measures (passwords, list handling, recording etc.) can be controlled and monitored.
The output capacity of the MOF series is up to 2500 parts/min, depending on marking and material. The feed and discharge of the closures is fully automated. These may even be fed from a hopper.
Compact Nature and Rapid Changeover
The compact construction means that machines in the MOF series are easy to integrate into existing production lines. A change of location can also be carried out by the operator without needing a fork lift truck. The machine can be moved easily on its own wheels. The feed unit and cooling units are also compact modules. Where space is at a premium, this also allows relocation on a module by module basis.
Versions and Capacity for Expansion
The machines in the MOF series are available in special versions for screw caps, crown caps, LongCaps, any kind of rotationally symmetrical components and a universal “Multi” version. The specially developed software makes it possible to carry out all labeling variants using one machine. All machines can be expanded as required: the available modules include modules for belt extension, for camera monitoring, and additional optical sensor for ultra-fine line thickness (recommended for images and Asian characters) and external cooling modules. The machine comes fitted with a standard connector for external extraction.
