Software | FlyCAD

Supplier: Industrial Laser

FlyCAD® operates through Windows® to create a marking system resulting in "what you see is what you get."


The simplicity and flexibility allows the system to incorporate in one (.dwg) file all the necessary information for marking every combination of True Type Text, Serial Numbers, Bar Codes, Data Matrix with the parameters and axis handling.

FlyCAD®'s operative code

User Interface: Entirely graphics, developed on the concept of WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get).
Precision: The lines, poly-lines, arches, and circumferences are created like geometric figures, rather than a collection of small segments.
Font: TTF fonts are fully supported in oriental languages also.
Text: Scalable fonts result in the same quality for small as well as for large text.  Horizontal and vertical writing mode.Dimensions and orientation graphically programmable or through a dialogue box. Right, Left, Center Text Alignment. Circular text marking. The text to be marked is fitted on an arc. The starting angle, arc radius and marking length are specified by the user.
Bar code: Code128, EAN8 and EAN13, code 39, code 2 of 5.Other codes available upon request.
DataMatrix: Fully compatible with AIM specifications.
Serial number: The serial numbers can include prefix, postfix, fixed number of digits (i.e. 001, 002 etc), arbitrary counting base from 2 up to 62, public or private counter.
It is possible to use as many serial numbers as are required for every drawing.
Date Coding: The date coding includes prefix and postfix. It allows every combination of fields. Available fields are days, months, years, week of the year, day of the year, hours, minutes and seconds. It is possible to associate special symbols to day, month etc.
Direct Text Marking: This special field allows specifying the text to mark directly in a message box run time. It is possible to specify as many as required direct text fields as required. A typical use of this functionality is to mark a fixed part (i.e. logo) and one or more variable parts (i.e. P/N and Customer code etc.) that could change marking by marking or lot by lot.
Parameters: The entire Laser process parameters including Power, Speed, QSW frequency, Number of Repetitions, Delay parameters, FPK, Wobble, etc. are stored in a file. It is possible to specify up to 63 different parameters set in each drawing. The file name can be 31 characters long.
Piece Counter:  This function allows programming the number of pieces to be marked counting of how many pieces are marked.
Help: Context sensitive help. If the user press F1 or the HELP button a window appears with the explanation of the command function and the relative use.

Axis integration

Grid Marking:
This function requires the use of X-Y positioning tables. It is useful when the operator needs to mark several little parts. Parts can be arranged on a big tray (according to the X-Y stage travel) therefore reducing the loading/unloading time. The software provides marking of all the parts inside the scanner marking area and then commands the X-Y stage to move the pallet to the next position.
Split: This function requires the use of X-Y positioning tables. The purpose of this option is to mark drawings larger than the scanner-marking field. FLASH automatically slices the drawing and then moves accordingly the X-Y tables respectively in order to engrave the whole picture.
