  • USA FDA CDRH certificate of safety
  • Fume extraction port
  • Marks small parts under 10" x 10" x 5" (varies based on laser source). For larger parts see LE24 Round Enclosure

Laser Source

CMT has a range of laser sources to meet any application requirement: from CO2 laser for plastic marking to high wattage fiber lasers with 3D profiling capabilities.

  • Low production or high production
  • 1 watt up to 50 watt power
  • CO2, fiber
  • Standard or profiling
  • 3rd axis controls to mark on the outside of round parts

Work Area

The drawer will allow parts of to 5.25" tall through its compact opening. The fixture plate may be raised and lowered via the adjustment knob on the outside of the enclosure. The laser focal distance is also a factor in the maximum part marking height. The fixture plate has a size of 10" x 10" (250mm x 250mm).


Fixture Plate

The CMT Eclipse LE16 fixture plate is a 10" x 10" plate with evenly spaced holes to mount fixtures for the laser marking process. The mounting holes are spaced at 1" intervals. The standard breadboard has 5/16-18 tapped holes. Metric is available upon request.

CMT offers an industrial fume extractor for laser marking. Laser marking is a burning process, and the smoke contains particulate matter that is not healthy for the operator to breathe. The smoke and particulate also impedes the laser beam and reduces the clarity and depth of the mark. A powerful fume extractor system is recommended to assure safety of the operator and the clarity of the mark.

The CMT Fume Extractor is contained in a brushed stainless steel floor-style cabinet with casters. The 3-stage filter system is pre-piped and wired to the laser enclosure system. The complete package includes hoses and suction nozzle mounting. CMT recommends this essential component to provide longevity to the laser unit investment.

Industrial machine base lets you convert the LE16 from a bench-top station to a complete floor-style machine. The base has room to mount the laser controller and HMI PC. The base comes standard with leveling feet. Castor upgrades are available for station mobility.

Automated start features are simply a must for production manufacturing. The standard method to start the marking process for either the I-Mark or CMT Eclipse marking software is to use a Windows mouse and select the marking icon, followed by an additional mouse click to start the process. This process is only seconds, but for repetitive production marking it adds up to minutes.

CMT can provide a custom-designed master fixture plate with adjustable design and positive part stop for exact positioning every time. The application-specific solution will be precision designed and built. CMT custom fixtures feature easy clamping or backup system to provide repeatable positioning. Please provide part prints with marking location noted at the time of quotation request.
