Day & night design of painted controls as well as backlit dashboards and buttons requires fast, high-quality and high-precision marking (paint removal). Over the past 25 years, FOBA has established itself as a preferred marking solution for global manufacturers and automotive suppliers. FOBA lasers apply functional marks that convince on various colors, coatings and materials with their utmost black-white brilliance or superior light-dark contrast

Fields of Application

  • Automotive 
  • Aerospace
    • Cockpit Controls
  • Electronics 
  • Control Consoles & Panels
    • Faceplates, front panels, buttons, dashboard
  • Keys & Switches
  • Rotary Controls
  • Instrument Displays

Product Benefits

  • Superior marking quality at 50 percent higher marking speed
  • More throughput due to larger marking field 
  • Enhanced application range due to smaller spot size and optimized beam quality
    • Finest and highly precise removal, sharp contours, no melting
  • Low operating costs thanks to 8 times longer lifetime of laser source
  • High uptime due to efficient and low maintenance air cooling
  • Improved beam stability
  • Resistance against critical environmental conditions (i.e. high temperatures)
  • ust-tight IP64 laser head
  • Shortest setup with Autofocus in the M-Series workstations (3 times faster vs. manual focus finding) and due to intelligent software features (Parameter Matrix Tool, contour offset, mark alignment, etc.)
