LP-M Laser Marking Systems

Laser Marking Systems: LP-M Series

Standing out for its high speed and 3D marking the LP-M series gives the user complex shapes without compromising the quality of any of the marking area. Ideal for a wide range of applications such as connecting rods, engraving and crankshafts. The 50W output allows rapid and deep markings on the metal.

Using Panasonic’s 3D software, the product being marked can first be rendered in 3D to immediately see whether the marking is fit for purpose, which increases the production efficiency and simultaneously reduces costs.


Deep marking or high-speed marking

The depth of the engraving and the applied speed can be coordinated exactly. The larger the energy amount sent to the work-piece, the faster or deeper the marking. Cycle time reduction greatly enhances productivity and reduces costs

Innovative dual protective enclosure

The LP-M series has been designed to withstand harsh environments containing dust and water. It was our intention to make the laser head fan-less and to protect it using an innovative IP64-compliant double protective housing.

Powerful z-axis control

The z-axis control enables markings on oblique, spherical or cylindrical shapes. Even with height differences of up to 44 mm, the stable laser beam diameter marks in excellent quality.

Automatic distance measuring

Customers no longer need to position the work-piece exactly for marking as the displacement sensor detects the product reliably and ensures stable marking quality.

LP-Z Laser Marking Systems

FAYb Laser Marking Systems LP-Z

Designed for marking complex 3D metal and plastic surfaces

Equipped with 3D functionality the LP-7 range is ideal for marking complex surfaces. The focus is adjusted automatically which guarantees the energy density of the beam is stable. The integrated z-axis control allows for the marking of oblique, convex and concave surfaces increasing the LP-Z’s usability.

The LP-Z series is equipped with an encoder interface for marking objects whilst moving down an automated production line. With standard features such as Data Matrix code, various barcodes and expiration dates supplied as standard, the LP-Z is well equipped for a multitude of applications.


25W fibre laser with selectable pulse width

The high output power not only increases efficiency but also makes it easier to create deep and black markings of metals. Moreover, heat is simply dissipated, eliminating the need for hooking up and maintaining water-cooling systems.

Precise marking and improved productivity

With a marking field of 330 mm x 330 mm, the LP-Z series enhances productivity by increasing the range of products that can be marked. Thanks to the integrated z-axis control, the system guarantees the ability to mark complex shapes without compromising the quality.

Marking of oblique, convex and concave surfaces

The z-axis control allows for the marking of oblique, convex and concave surfaces in an area of 50 mm (±25 mm). Inside the marking field, the spot size remains stable to ensure consistent, high-quality marking. To productivity, the LP-Z series has the ability to mark two facing surfaces in one step if the laser head or the product is mounted at a certain angle.

Are you SIRIUS about Spring-Loaded Terminal Technology?


In today’s world, everything seems to be getting faster, from fibre broadband to high-speed trains, speed is certainly of the essence in today’s modern world whatever aspect you venture into. With the ever-increasing trend towards digitalisation in seemingly all aspects of life, it comes as no surprise that huge pressure is being felt within the industrial environment too. What are the mechanisms and technology that can be used for controlling motors and process control systems and beyond that can keep pace with the rest of the world?

It stands to reason that to be competitive within today’s modern industry then fast and efficient fault-free control panel assembly that can withstand the vigorous and frenetic activities of the working environment is a necessity.

Siemens SIRIUS: They’re Modular, with Benefits

Whether you are reversing a motor starter or building an infeed system, the Siemens SIRIUS range of modular low voltage products, available from Kempston Controls, is the ideal solution to the ever-accelerating world of modern industry. The SIRIUS modular system provides the most comprehensive switching device portfolio currently available in the marketplace, exceeding 50k tested and approved control set-up combinations.

Whatever your intended application, perhaps silo filling, controlling a water supply or making your existing process more efficient, the innovations available within the Siemens SIRIUS product range will satisfy all of your demanding requirements. The benefits of this modular system are simple, everything easily fits together easily and quickly, speeding up your processes and saving you space, time and money.

But, there’s more than just this modular systems ability to fit together easily…

It’s all about Spring-Loaded Connection Technology!

The traditional method of cable termination within your average control panel consists of a multitude of screw terminals housed in various functional control devices and depending on the size of an installation, there could be hundreds of such connections. This is where the SIRIUS spring-loaded terminal range comes into its element, now you don’t need to waste time tightening and loosening terminal screws to assemble or disassemble elements of your control panel. Simply insert a screwdriver to release the spring-loaded terminal mechanism place your stripped wire into the spring clamp and remove the screwdriver. Job done! There is no need to terminate the conductor with a bootlace ferrule or other such terminal. As an added element to the advantages of this assembly process when tightening screw-terminals the torque applied is dependent on the installer, that activity and the potential error in applying an adequate torque are eliminated with the use of SIRIUS spring-loaded terminal (also known as cage-clamp) technology.

 SIRIUS Spring-Loaded Terminal Technology Features

  • Accelerate your control panel assembly time with simple ‘click and go’ technology
  • Modular space saving design – the SIRIUS range fits together seamlessly
  • Covers a multitude of applications
  • Reduced service and downtime and maintenance costs
  • Compliant with all current global standards
  • Vibration resistant and certified to the same standard as screw terminals
  • No need for ferrules or crimp terminals – saving even more time and money

 Functional Diversity

Whatever your intended control panel purpose the Siemens SIRIUS spring-loaded range covers all of the possible applications you will need for protecting, switching and starting and monitoring motors from the most basic designs to the most complex, and more. The SIRIUS range offers the highest performance-to-size ratio of any similar technology that is available in the market today, saving valuable control panel space and of course, that all important and costly time aspect, just click and go!

The SIRIUS spring-loaded low voltage range doesn’t encompass the entire SIRIUS offer and the more traditional screw terminal technology covers those areas where spring-loaded terminals are not provided or recommended.
