Precision tools in machining technology are subject to heavy use. The markings on turning, milling or drilling tools must also withstand these stresses. Here, laser marking offers some decisive advantages over other methods, such as etching or embossing. Laser markings on metal tools boast long-term durability and enormous flexibility. A laser marking can be applied very precisely to the tool on different geometries, even with the smallest font sizes. This doesn’t change the workpiece properties because laser processing is contactless and chemical-free. Thanks to environmentally-friendly processing, there are also no additional cleaning costs.
Which laser machine is needed for marking machining tools.
The SpeedMarker laser marking machines offers permanent, contactless and direct laser marking of dynamic data at the lowest possible cost. Individual components as well as large batches can be marked with a galvo laser system of laser class 2 for full traceability, brand communication or with functional markings.
“The quality of Trotec machines coupled with their support network made us fully confident in our purchase. With the two machines we now have greater scope for production and prototyping, saving us both time and money in outsourcing.”
“We use the SpeedMarker 700 to mark the brand and logo on our motors, along with all its specifications and certifications. The system is fully integrated with our ERP, once we scan the work order all the info is automatically pulled. Trotec offers impeccable support especially in the early stages of programming and calibration. The SpeedMarker 700 offers the highest quality of marking on stainless steel and mild steel units.”
“We have previous experience with other laser system manufacturers in production, e.g. for marking housings or PCBs. However, they don’t offer a suitable solution for our requirements. In contrast, Trotec Laser was able to provide us with an optimal production solution using the SP1500 large-format laser machine.”
