Our marking software has been designed to meet the needs of all types of users of laser marking systems. The software was developed to be a retrofit package for existing systems or as original software on new systems.

We are promoting laser lamps, galvos, marking heads, green laser pointers etc till the stock is sold out. Pleasee click here.

Our marking software has been designed to meet the needs of all types of users of laser marking systems.  The software was developed to be a retrofit package for existing systems, or as original software on new systems. The package provides significant advancements over previous laser marking control systems, while remaining extremely user-friendly. It's an object oriented, graphically interactive, PC control system providing a user the ability define and execute laser marking jobs. Multiple hardware interfaces are supported giving the software the ability to control most Nd:YAG and CO2 laser marking systems.

Unlike some marking software, the operator never has to remember what fonts and logo's need to be loaded for a particular job. The software automatically performs all required graphic loading. The software does not require users to learn any programming languages or special codes, and yet the software provides all of the flexible, graphic control users are accustomed to, including radial marking, aspect control, character spacing, angular rotations, and full justification. Text to be marked can be fixed or variable. Variable text can be retrieved at runtime from a variety of sources including, the keyboard, a bar code reader, and disk files.  Automatic date coding and alphanumeric serialization are included as variable text types. Fonts include laser engraving fonts and Window’s True Type fonts. True Type fonts can be vector filled using user specified density, angle and kerf. Graphics (sometimes called "logo's" on other systems) can be imported from a large variety of common vector formats.  All graphic features are either menu controlled or graphically controlled via the mouse and keyboard.

The software can create various objects such as barcode, DataMatrix, text, simple geometrical objects (such as line, rectangle, round-corner rectangle, polygon, circle, ellipse etc), complex graphic objects (such as PLT & BMP files), automatic date coding and alphanumeric serialization.

There are two series of marking cards (interface cards) and relevant software: LMC and STEL. Custom-design is available upon request..

1. LMC Series Cards and Software

It's an object oriented, graphically interactive, PC control system providing a user the ability define and execute laser marking jobs. Multiple hardware interfaces are supported giving the software the ability to control most Nd:YAG, CO2 and fiber laser marking systems such as adjusting currents, frequency, duty ratio . and red light indication.

Digital card (control CO2 laser, YAG laser)

Digital fiber card (control fiber lasers)

PCIE card (control CO2 and YAG laser) and PCIE-F card (control fiber laser) are also available. Their functions are same as digital cards's functions.

Dynamic focus board

DA converter board

DA converter is an integrated product for digital to analogue single conversion, to enable higher marking accuracy and long distance signal transmission which is less susceptible to electrical noise.

There are two types:

  1. channel: supports 2 channels output, and the digital protocol has not extended coding, which is labeled as “20071012-V101”;
  2. channel: supports 3 channels output, and the digital protocol has the extended coding, which is labeled as "20080107-V103”.

Remark: The boards always come with 2D marking to control 2D galvos plus one axis (rotary or Z-axis). On-fly and XY-axis are available upon request at additional cost.

2. STEL Series Cards and Software

1)    STEL-PMC2 card

marking card

STEL-PMC2 is a PCI bus advanced laser marking card, support digital galvo motor, compatible with XY2-100 protocol, and through DA-1 6 daughter board can control analog galvo motor precisely.

2)    LSRM-UMC4 card

mark card

STEL-UMC4 is a USB bus advanced laser marking card, and support digital galvo motor, compatible with XY2-100 protocol. STEL-UMC4 built-in full offline marking functions could access up to 16 files.

3) STEL-MM3D card

MM3D marking software has combined the third marking axis(focal shifter) control ability, which could help user marking on irregular curve surface. After user imports the 3D model in STL format, MM3D will paste the drew graphic on the model surface. At this time, user could put the working-piece on the proper marking position to complete marking task. Not only MM3D allowed user import 3D model in STL format, but built in several most frequently used curve surface; or user could import 3D DXF file as marking path.

4) STEL-MM software: MarkingMate

marking card

STEL-MM MarkingMate is window-based laser marking software developed which is easy and friendly to use powerful tool. Support variety vector and bitmap graphic, and provide library and OCX component for marking solution provider. Easily to mark on plane or non-plane surface, also support variety PCI or USB marking controller, able to control almost all kinds of laser.
