LASELEC’s ULYS 990 Modena is marked out for success

LASELEC of France, a specialist in laser wire and cable marking, has released the ULYS 990 Modena – the latest version of its ULYS™ series of wire- and cable-marking machines for the aerospace, railway and automotive industries. LASELEC will attend several upcoming trade shows, including the Farnborough Air Show from 14 to 20 July 2008.

The ULYS 990 Modena offers enhanced laser performance thanks to a wider marking zone and higher frequency of shots, which are more than double the regular number in boost mode. It is more compact, and includes four printing fonts as standard, with two horizontal and two vertical orientations, and 90 characters per font (including upper and lower case). It allows up to 128 characters per identification mark to be printed, with specific information at cable ends, and has Code 39 bar-code printing capability.

The ULYS 990 Modena is suited for use in all kinds of production, thanks to the user-friendly and versatile EASYPROD™ command software that is included. This proprietary software helps optimise production and generates significant time savings.

The ULYS 990 Modena is equipped with Twin Shots technology, patented by LASELEC, which enables users to choose the appropriate production mode. The Boost mode marks at extremely high speed, using very long identifiers with small spacing, bar codes and wires/cables in reel-to-reel configuration using the LASELEC re-spooler with no cuts. The Economic mode marks short and common identifiers with longer spacing. It increases the lifespan of the flash lamp and saves energy.

The wire/cable-marking machines developed by LASELEC are primarily used in the aerospace, railway and automotive sectors. LASELEC machines are based on controlled laser technology, which guarantees non-aggressive marking and compliance with the highest quality requirements in wire processing, which is particularly important for aerospace wiring.


LASELEC, which is headquartered in Toulouse (in south-west France), is a leading manufacturer of UV laser cable-marking machines. The company, which has just opened an office in Sydney (Australia), has also increased its market share in the USA thanks to the dynamism of LASELEC Inc. LASELEC was awarded the International Development trophy by the DCF (Dirigeants Commerciaux de France – French Sales Managers Association) in October 2007, in recognition of its sustained annual growth rates over the last few years.

LASELEC will be present at the following upcoming trade shows: AEA in Washington DC (USA) from 23 to 24 April 2008 (booth 831); Farnborough Air Show in Farnborough (UK) from 14 to 20 July 2008 (booth C15, Hall 2); and NBAA in Orlando (USA) from 6 to 8 October 2008.

Notes for editor
Copyright — FTPB is waiving its copyright on the content included in this press release, which means that recipients are free to reproduce, modify and circulate it if they wish to do so and as far as copyright law is concerned. If a given publication such as a trade magazine (to which FTPB subscribes) goes ahead and publishes an article on the basis of this press release, we would like to be informed so as to retrieve the published material, and so as to be able to send it to our client company/entity in France (i.e. the company/entity that provided us with the information contained in the press release in the first place). We keep a printed copy of the published material in the relevant file in our office, and a second copy may infrequently be kept in a press-book that may be shown to potential clients when they visit FTPB’s offices. Other than that, a single scanned copy is sent electronically to the client/entity in France (or, more rarely, a single printed copy is sent by post). This is important to us and to our clients. By reproducing material/content that FTPB sends to a given publication, the recipient (i.e. the publisher and/or editor) is deemed to have agreed to the limited and legitimate use of the published material — in return and in due course — by FTPB, as described above. If the recipient of this press release objects to the potential limited re-use of his (her) published material by FTPB (as outlined above) in the name of his (her) copyright, the said recipient should inform FTPB as soon as possible, and the director of the press bureau will contact the publication concerned by return of email (, which will be followed up with a telephone call and/or a letter in order to try to find a compromise that would be acceptable to both parties. FTPB seeks to comply fully and actively with copyright law in all its aspects within the United Kingdom and as per European Union laws and regulations.

Embedded images — For journalists and editors who need the pictures embedded in an FTPB press release, it is very easy to retrieve them. What you need to do is as follows: within the body of the press release, left-click on the picture; this should magnify the image to a size that is directly usable; then, right-click on the magnified picture and choose the 'Save As' function; finally, save the magnified image as a JPEG file on the hard disk of your computer, giving it the name that you wish to use in connection with the story concerned. If you have any problems with this procedure, do not hesitate to give us a ring. It is always possible for FTPB to send you JPEG pictures as attachments in an email upon request. Thank you.

Reader responses — Please advise us of publication of this press release and continue to send reader responses to FTPB. This is the only way we can ensure the follow-up is done efficiently.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
