Press Release Summary:
Capable of marking various materials, VectorMark 5 HP is equipped with Nd-YVO4 (Vanadate) laser, digital scanner, and automatic laser power calibration system. Pulse peak power values make unit suited for high-speed engraving, plastics marking, and metals annealing where pulse-to-pulse stability is crucial. While repetition frequency is 120 kHz, system offers 40 Âµm spot size for mark field of 4.7 x 4.7 in.

TRUMPF Presents the New VectorMark 5 High Performance Workstation
FARMINGTON, Conn., February 1, 2007 - At MD&M West 2007, TRUMPF will introduce the new VectorMark 5 HP to the North American market. The VectorMark 5 HP, a high-performance version of the VectorMark 5, is capable of marking at speeds nearly two times faster than the standard model while maintaining mark quality. Able to mark a wide variety of materials, the pulse peak power values of the VectorMark 5 HP make it particularly well suited for high-speed engraving, marking of plastics, and annealing of metals where pulse to pulse stability is crucial.
"The VectorMark 5 HP is ideal for demanding applications requiring superior mark consistency and quality. And, for those applications where ultra-fast marking speeds are crucial," explains Peter Grollmann, TRUMPF Inc. laser marking product manager. "Manufacturers in the medical, automotive, electronics, electro-mechanics, defense and aerospace industries will find the machine most applicable. The short pulse duration makes the system ideal for applications requiring a small heat affected zone."
The VectorMark 5 HP is equipped with an automatic laser power calibration (LPC) system enabling regular calibration of the power settings. This is particularly important in tightly regulated processes such as medical applications, where equipment functionality must be regularly confirmed.
The system features an Nd-YVO4 (Vanadate) laser, bridging the VMc5 fundamental mode marking laser and the VMi3 multi-node marking laser. Repetition frequency has improved to 120 kHz and a new digital scanner with increased dynamics contributes to the increase in marking speeds. The smallest possible spot is maintained even at the highest marking speeds - just 40 µm for a mark field of 120 x 120 mm (4.7 x 4.7 in.).
