South Tyneside-based Trotec Laser Ltd (www.troteclaser.com
), a leading supplier of laser cutting, engraving and marking machines, has introduced the new U300 laser marker.
Part of the Rayjet series of laser machines, this features a working area of 190 x 190mm and is designed for efficient marking of metals and plastics.
The U300 is equipped with a maintenance-free fibre laser source and allows direct marking of blank metals without the need for additional sprays or pastes, while plastics can be easily ‘re-coloured’. Furthermore, the high-quality lenses and the size of the ‘laser spot’ are said to ensure ‘perfect laser marking results’ and fine detail.
U-series machines are designed for high-speed marking and allow a range of data to be marked; this includes codes, data files, graphics and texts.
Furthermore, a built-in material database allows the user to select pre-determined parameters and store their own settings to make job set-up as efficient as possible.
A newly developed border-marking function allows users to project a guide onto the surface to be marked at any time during the process, so that jobs can be positioned in real time and corrected with the click of a mouse.
Also featured is a newly integrated user interface, which allows the laser to work with any Windows PC.
Trotec sales director Bryan Jater said: “The introduction of the U300 allows us to bring high-quality and efficient laser marking equipment to the entry-level market, breaking many of the entry-level barriers to laser marking.”
