Trumpf showcased a number of its laser cutting, welding and marking technologies designed for medical device manufacturing at MD&M West this year. The technology it showcased included the TruMicro Mark 2000 in a TruMark Station 5000.
TruMicro Mark 2000 is a full featured ultrashort pulse laser marking station. The laser’s ultrashort pulses allow for cold processing, which allows fabricators to single-pass mark materials with a corrosion-resistant, non-fading ultra-black mark. The TruMicro Mark 2000 can also mark chrome plated plastic surfaces without thermally damaging the plastic or polymer. The technology makes medical device product labeling and the traceability of machine-readable markings easier.
Trumpf also exhibited its TruMicro Mark 2000 laser in a TruMark Station 5000. The modular design creates a fully enclosed TruMark workstation. Its OEM version can be easily incorporated into existing production lines. The machine’s TruTops Mark program features marking software, a CAD editor, a database of laser parameters, QuickFlow sequence programming and a diagnostics tool and can be used and navigated with a touch-screen interface.
