FOBA's green laser cool touch laser marker

FOBA has developed a 532 nm wavelength green laser marking system which offers new possibilities for industrial direct part marking. The low-heat laser applies perfect marks on materials with extraordinary absorption properties. Such materials include white, transparent or red plastics as well as highly reflective metals. It can even mark materials such as UHMWPE, HDPE or PMMA for which additives might no longer be necessary, as well as glass or shiny substrates. Learn more about the product


Norton's Vortex Rapid Prep Non-Woven Flap Discs

Norton Vortex Rapid Prep Non-Woven Flap Discs last longer and produce increased cutting rates and smear-free finishes simultaneously. Norton's patented Vortex agglomerated aluminum oxide grain technology enables the cutting power of a coarser grit while producing a finer finish in one abrasives disc solution. Ideal for light blending, stripping, edge breaking, and surface prep applications in key industries such as metal fabrication and welding, aerospace, transportation, energy, and construction, the flap discs feature special 3D non-woven abrasive layers.
