"We were looking for a laser marking machine because our new customer Liebherr from Germany wanted to have the parts provided with a lasered data matrix code. The laser was a completely new investment for us, and with the laser machine we now can meet the traceability requirements of clients so we can soon be deployed for more diverse assignments and customers. The laser marker is operated by 4 staff currently following a short training course. Following this they were soon able to operate the marking laser, "says Herrald Hulst.
When searching for a high-quality laser machine, we compared various suppliers. We eventually opted for a SpeedMarker 700 marking laser from Trotec, who invested time and effort in both ourselves and the product. They came up with a competitive offer and complete concept that both Machine Fabriek Elburg and then end customer can agree with. We were also able to have some small series lasered at Trotec on a demo machine prior to the fast delivery so that the customer immediately had a result in-house for evaluation. We are very satisfied with the laser marking machine, because it is easy to use. It has made us even more complete as a supplier, "says Herrald Hulst.
