On-The-Fly Processing

High-speed laser processing for parts in continual motion with velocity tracking. Discover the potentials of our on-the-fly technology.

On-The-Fly Laser Systems

On-the-Fly (OTF) marking and drilling is a technique that allows a laser system to process parts while they are in motion. Oftentimes in automated manufacturing environments, stopping parts on a production line is not cost effective or feasible and the need for processing these parts becomes important. At CMS Laser, our engineers are experts at designing and manufacturing laser systems that incorporate OTF processing for applications such as laser marking, laser drilling, laser cutting, and many more.

The Laser Experts of On-the-Fly Technology

  • Velocity Tracking – Software can track steady state motion, accelerations, and decelerations in real-time based on encoder feedback.
  • Simulated On-the-Fly – A simpler version of on-the-fly marking is where average velocity is either set by the software or represented by an analog voltage to track a part moving at a constant velocity.
  • In The Round and Straight Path Tracking – Most on-the-fly applications track parts in a straight path but CMS systems can also track parts as they move in an arced path or at an angle to the galvo head if required.

The Absolute Best Customer Service Around

Working with the entire Control Micro Systems team on our project was a pleasure. CMS was capable of meeting and exceeding our goals. They successfully designed and built a machine which increased our throughput by 550%! We are so glad we chose to move forward with CMS.

Jim B., Custom Wire Technologies, Inc.

In the three years ACR has owned the CMS laser, it has worked flawlessly. In the few instances where ACR needed support in programming, CMS was quick to respond.

Mike S., ACR Electronics, Inc.

CMS have been excellent partners in the development of new, complex equipment for our business. CMS built multiple machines for us. Each machine had a different purpose, however the CMS team worked openly & honestly with us to agree on optimal solutions for each one.
