FOBA Advanced Operator PlugIn

FOBA's Advanced Operator PlugIn (AOP) is a focused graphical user interface for FOBA
laser marking equipment. The PlugIn is directly integrated in FOBA's MarkUS marking soft-
ware, and has been designed for improving production efficiency, reducing costs and increa-
sing throughputs during the laser marking process in the medical technology field as well as
various other industries.

In the AOP, the essential steps of the marking process are clearly visualized in order to
ensure a quick, intuitive, secure and almost error-free operation of the FOBA laser system.
The optimized functionality, the easy and clear operation via process visualization and clear
operator instructions as well as the safe data transfer with a barcode scanner and ERP
integration ensure high process stability and efficiency during direct part marking.

A graphical operator interface with optimal functional
scope for maximum process reliability

FOBAs Advanced Operator
PlugIn helps manufacturers
to accelerate their production
processes and to reduce scrap
during part marking. This can
add up to savings in the range
of 40,000 Euro per year – given
a 3 shift operation with 5 job
changes per shift.

Your product benefits

Increased process reliability and reduced scrap:

simple, fast, safe and error-reduced operation thanks to
clear and intuitive visual user guidance; reduction of
operator tasks thanks to the integration of barcode scanners
for data transfer.

Optimize production efficiency and throughput: visual

instructions on operator screen; direct visual process feed-
back and status updates; interface connection to ERP sys-
tems (database connectivity); reduction of data entry time
(automated job selection and minimal manual interaction,
switching between jobs is fast and error-free)

Supports quality management requirements through

history and reporting functionality
