Trotec Lasers Offer High Quality, Speed, and Precision for Marking Industrial Materials for a Broad Range of Manufacturing Needs

YPISLANTI, MI - March 17, 2008 - Trotec Laser, Inc., a leader in laser cutting, marking, and engraving solutions, today announced that it will showcase its laser marking solutions for the manufacturing industry at WESTEC, March 31-April 3 in Los Angeles, CA (Booth #2249). Trotec offers a full range of lasers to support industrial product marking for a wide variety of manufacturing needs, with top speeds, precision, quality, and durability. Among the laser solutions on display at the Trotec booth will be the FP100, an entry-level laser ideal for marking metals that combines two advanced laser technologies in one, and the SpeedMarker FL, a compact, galvanometer-based fiber laser.

"Manufacturers across a range of industries have recognized that laser marking offers a faster, more precise way to add bar codes, serial numbers, and logos on materials that need to withstand harsh environments - whether it be an automobile or medically implantable device," said Mike Rauch, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Trotec Laser, Inc. "Trotec offers a diverse product line to meet these unique needs, with laser solutions that ensure abrasion-proof, fraud-protected marking that is thermally- and chemically-resistant to ensure longevity, sterility, and compliance for the duration."

Trotec's entry-level solution for laser marking, the FP 100, is a flatbed, gantry-based laser using a pulsed fiber laser source, combining two leading-edge technologies to deliver the highest speed, flexibility, and quality. Materials supported include bare and coated metals, untreated and coated plastics, electronic components, type plates, and more. The FP 100 is the fastest laser in its class thanks to Trotec's unique high-speed ramp-up control, capable of greater than 6.5 feet/sec at a maximum resolution of 1000 ppi.

Trotec's SpeedMarker Fiber Laser (FL) is a compact, galvanometer-based fiber laser system. Offering high-quality laser marking for industrial products, it is virtually maintenance-free and supports marking "on-the-fly" for moving parts. SpeedMarker FL's state-of-the-art fiber laser ensures the highest accuracy, reliability, performance, and longevity, featuring superior beam quality with top speeds up to 1000 characters/sec. It integrates seamlessly into existing assembly lines, or can be used as a standalone solution.
