Laser Marking: a flexible solution

Laser marking for industrial data plates, tags and functional labels

Laser marking is an effective and efficient solution for producing data plates, signs and functional labels in industrial environments.

Designed to efficiently mark metals and plastics along the industrial production chain, SpeedMarker marking lasers come with several configuration options so that they can be integrated with an existing workflow and customized to meet unique application needs. Other time-saving features include an automatic door for efficient part handling, software-controlled axes, a pilot laser for border marking, and a rotary table.

The included SpeedMark software is a comprehensive and intuitive workflow software package with a customizable user interface and a broad range of capabilities including automatic, sequential bar code generation, data integration from ERP systems, dynamic data processing, a parameter finder for new applications and materials, and deep engraving function, to name a few. Users can easily create customized marking processes using the software's program modules, which cover a wide range of common marking processes. From simple direct input to fully automated marking, the user can select the module and adjust it using graphical flow control to create tailor-made marking programs. No special programming knowledge is needed. More on how to create custom marking programs with SpeedMark.

Advantages and function of laser technology

Mark flexible, variable data

You can produce a broad range of markings using variable content without retooling. Using SpeedMark software, you can use data from existing ERP systems and dynamic content in codes.

Permanent markings

  • Laser markings are permanent marked, and are resistant to abrasion, acid, and even 
  • This is imperative for reasons of quality assurance and traceability

Advantages of Trotec Lasers

  • Product portfolio with matching fiber laser systems for all requirements
  • OEM galvo fiber laser for integration into production lines
  • Custom-built systems according to customer requirements

Markings completed in seconds allow for fast cycle times

  • Galvo technology creates high speed labeling

Advantages of Trotec Lasers

  • Galvo fiber lasers are maintenance-free machines that produce the fastest labels with minimal servicing

Incredible design opportunities

  • Logos, barcodes, product information, warning notices, and virtually all other designs can be created with the laser
  • Even small shapes and 1-point fonts can be created without sacrificing legibility
  • Photos are produced efficiently and in shortest time possible

Advantages of Trotec Lasers

  • Printing is made easy with our JobControl or DirectMark laser marking software, which processes jobs directly from the graphics program

Cost-efficient production

  • Direct marking reduces overhead costs for consumables
  • Requires no additional pre- or post-treatment 
  • Wear and tear on tools is eliminated

Maximize efficiency with high-speed marking

  • High speed marking with variable data is possible (e.g. serial numbers, codes)
  • A wide range of different markings can be created without retooling or tool changes

Advantages of Trotec Lasers

  • Intelligent and intuitive marking software
  • Fast and highly accurate positioning of components by means of a camera system: SpeedMark Vision - Smart Adjust

Application examples for dataplates

The process of laser marking materials provides a durable mark that is resistant to abrasion, hot and cold elements, UV radiation, alcohol or chemicals. The precise laser beam allows for fine details to be achieved, and even the smallest 1-point fonts are clearly legible. Laser machines are a contactless technology that saves consumers time and money due to the fact that no additional pre-processing or post-processing of materials are required. Additionally, thanks to the minimal repair and maintenance costs of laser’s, the expense per mark remains strikingly low regardless of job size.
