Trumpf has introduced two new marking lasers – the TruMark 6030 and TruMark 6140 – to its TruMark Series 6000. Users can now choose from six high-performance machines that are available in any wavelength needed for surface processing. All TruMark Series 6000 lasers stand out due to their short processing times and high marking precision.
Faster processing times are required to meet high-volume manufacturing requirements. Faster cycle times for all process steps are required to reduce bottlenecks, which include laser marking.
The lasers enable users to perform any marking process quickly and with a high level of quality, including tempering, engraving, depositing, color change, and foaming. The TruMark 6030 and 6140 lasers feature considerably shorter marking times when compared to other products in the TruMark Series 6000. Trumpf has increased the output of these new marking lasers by about 35%, the cycle times have been shortened accordingly. A comparison of the new TruMark 6140 with the TruMark 6130 illustrates this increased productivity. Using the same laser parameters, the same frequency and the same speed, the TruMark 6140 achieves twice the engraving depth.
The TruMark 6030 works in the infrared range of 1064nm. With its Nd:YAG laser crystal it is designed for marking in the lower frequencies up to 60kHz. Users can achieve the best marking results with the TruMark 6140 and its Nd:YVO4 laser crystal in the infrared range of 1064nm at frequencies starting at 40kHz.
