            When designing a custom built system, the proven and robust laser workstations usually form the basis, which is expanded by the addition of different modules, such as feeders or sorters. Entirely new systems can also be developed, which always have Trotec's galvo laser technology at their core.
              • Custom-built SpeedMarker 1300 with palette feeding for marking heavy parts

              • Easy loading of heavy parts with a crane

                Trotec experts developed the system to meet the need of a particular customer who needed an easy way to load heavy parts onto a Class 2 laser. The custom laser machine includes palette feeding and an automatically closing side partition so that heavy parts can be easily loaded and unloaded on a palette and then transported into the laser workstation. A coordinated identification and a 3-axis-system (x-, y- and z-axis) enable the laser to make precise markings exactly where they are needed. Additionally, lighter parts can be easily loaded and unloaded via front door.
              • Laser marking long parts with SpeedMarker 300 and modified substructure

              • Laser marking of pipes and profiles with the SpeedMarker 300

                For labeling of long bar stock of extruded aluminum and steel at one end, a Trotec SpeedMarker 300 lettering laser was modified and provided with a support for the parts. The substructure was designed so that the machine corresponds to Laser Class 1 or Laser Class 2 (with laser pointer).
                Thus, rails, pipes, and profiles with lengths from 100 to 4000 mm can be laser-marked. Smaller single parts or small batches of other components can be inserted directly into the labeling chamber. The laser marking station can also be used portably, further increasing the flexibility of the laser system. The labeling program is started using a code on a working document, and the variable labeling content is transferred via an ERP database connection to the laser software.
              • Customized SpeedMarker 700 for laser lettering of long or oversized parts

              • SpeedMarker 700 with parts support for oversized parts

                The SpeedMarker 700 laser workstation can also be adapted for laser marking long parts. Long parts can be inserted into an automated feeder. The parts are then moved into the labeling chamber, marked and moved on a conveyor belt. To ensure laser safety, the supply and discharge openings are closed with a cover.
                The advantage of this variation is the positioning in the labeling chamber, since it allows labeling not only at one end of the part, but at any position of the component. Alternatively, the system can be designed so that the feeders on both sides can be alternately loaded to increase throughput.
              • Extrawide workstation

              • SpeedMarker laser marking system with extra-wide casing

                In some cases, it is necessary to design an even wider casing for the laser system in order to be able to mark broad and heavy parts.
                The system in the picture on the left was designed for the marking rifles, which must be labeled in accordance with specific legal requirements regarding traceability and authorisation. In order to enable the insertion as well as the positioning of these long firearms, the casing was widened accordingly and equipped with a displaceable X- and Z-axis.
              • SpeedMarker 1300 with numerical controlled exchange tables

              • Loading and laser marking at the same time

                Because the cycle times had to be very short, Trotec designed a custom-built laser system with two moving exchange tables that alternate to allow work pieces to be unloaded and loaded and marked at the same time. In addition, the two y-tables can move parallel when large work pieces need to be laser marked.
                The base of this custom-built laser machine is the SpeedMarker 1300. Automation experts adapted the 1300 to include with the exchange tables so that the output could be doubled. With added modules the SpeedMarker quickly and easily became a custom-built laser solution.
              • SpeedMarker 700 with storage system, seperating unit and tapping point for laser marking ball bearings

              • Fully automated laser marking for components

                Trotec developed a fully automated laser workstation with table magazine, separating unit and conveyor belt for the marking of ball bearings. With the laser software SpeedMark, the ball bearings can be marked with production data, country of origin, type identification or the name of the producer. All the relevant data can be directly processed from the customers SAP system. This fast and automated safety class laser marking process enables users to achieve short cycle and setup times.
                The ball bearings are loaded to the maintenance-free fibre laser with a separating unit and conveyor belt. As the system is fully covered, the parts can be marked at high speed while laser safety class 2 is guaranteed. The marked bearings are then transported to a storage bin with the conveyor belt where they can be collected and unloaded. Even larger parts or different materials can be marked by using the front housing. The multi-functional laser software SpeedMark is easy to use and can be handled by all employees.

              • Automated laser workstation for marking of spiral drills

              • Fully automated workstation with conveyor belt

                Since spiral drills and other precision tools are produced in very large quantities, the marking process has to be very fast too – ideally in just a few seconds. With a custom-tailored laser workstation all the requirements can be met, and the spiral drills can be marked in two seconds. The high-speed laser marking also has many other advantages such as extremely high and stable quality or highest reliability by using maintenance-free fiber lasers. With the SpeedMark software, it is also possible to mark variable data such as production date and serial numbers – in the form of texts or codes.
              • Laser marking systems for industrial applications with selective shielding

              • Laser marking of large or bulky parts

                While manyworkpieces (smaller pieces in particular) are marked within the confines of protective laser housings with manual or automatic parts feeds, very large or heavy items have different requirements. They can be made of a number of different materials, such as stainless steel or coated metals, and include castings as well as large plastic components or ceramics.The problem is always determining how to enclose these parts into protective housings and how to best align them for marking with the laser. The effort required to set up marking process in plants with these requirements is considerable. Laser markings are often very expensive to produce with these solutions. A single area of selective shielding over the marking area can be a good alternative to large protective housings with automatic laser positioning. Only the area between the beam exit on the lens and the marking surface is protected by means of a protective dome or lens barrel. A sealing lip prevents possible beam exits from the workpiece surface.
              • Laser workstation SpeedMarker 1300 with loading cart for laser marking high parts

              • Laser marking high parts

                Trotec developed a custom workstation for a unique customer requirement. The customer was a printing company in need of a solution for laser marking rotary die cutters and other tool steel cylinders with heights of up to 600 mm. The solution needed to be able to mark the front-end of the cylinders as well as offer the possibility to engrave smaller pieces.
                Before working with Trotec, the customer had been using a micro-percussion marking machine for this application, which did not provide the same versatility or efficiency as laser marking. Trotec's custom solution was built using a SpeedMarker 1300 as starting point. A loading cart was added to provide space for the large cylinders. Using the custom laser workstation, the customer can load cylinders with a length of up to 1200 mm, and push them into the laser with the help of the loading cart. A supporting table makes it possible to adapt to the different sizes of the cylinders. The lift gate to load and unload the machine can be opened manually or programmed to open automatically. When the lift gate is closed, the laser marking station can be used in laser protection class 1.
            • Applications

                • Acrylic laser cutting

                • Laser cutters for acrylic, plexiglas, TroGlass, Perspex and PMMA

                  Acrylic (PMMA) is ideal for laser processing projects such as illuminated advertisements, signage, point of sales displays and more. Without any additional post-processing, the laser cuts result in shiny, flame polished edges. Panels up to 25 mm thick can be cut efficiently and cost-effectively. Acrylic can be engraved to create a matted finish with the CO2 laser, or marked to create a color change with the fiber laser.

                • Digital printing

                • Laser cutting and laser engraving in digital printing


                  Producing printed products (such as flyers, brochures or invitation cards) has evolved from fine craftsmanship to industrial production. While offset printing is used for large order volumes, digital printing has become the norm at many print shops and copy shops because it can be used for small and medium-sized print runs (up to approx. 5,000 pages per order). The advantage is that no static printing form is used, making it possible to print each sheet differently. Combined with a laser system, digital printing presents many new possibilities for paper finishing, giving print service providers opportunities to create new business areas with high-quality products, making even small print runs profitable.

                  Suitable materials for laser processing
                  Materials that can be printed by digital printing:

                  • mainly paper (paper finishing in all possible formats and strengths)
                  • acrylics
                  • plastics
                  • MDF
                • Electronic components

                • Electronics and semiconductor industry

                  Products in the electronics and semiconductor industry are mostly mass-market products that are produced fully automatically in large numbers. Many parts, such as SMD components, are very small and need to be labeled with a lot of information. For this purpose small, complex 2D Data Matrix codes are used, which must be easily and permanently legible. Due to these requirements, the electronics industry has already made laser marking a standard procedure. Galvo laser systems allow for a trouble-free, quick, fully or semi-automated labeling process.

                  Materials
                  suitable for laser engraving

                  In digital production many different materials are used -- from cardboard, paper, MDF, wood to acrylic. Textiles, plastics, polystyrene or film can also be processed with great results. In addition, it is not necessary to consider the diameter of the tool. Depending on the lens used, the laser beam is about 0.1 mm wide. Therefore almost any geometry can be cut using the laser.
                • Films and Foils

                • Laser Cutting Plastic Foils and Films

                  The laser beam allows for controlled fusing of the foils and films and produces clear and sealed cutting edges. With the laser, you can cut even the smallest radii precisely and produce simple geometries at record speed. During laser cutting, no pressure is exerted on the foils or films by a tool, the entire process is contact-less and consequently, the end product will turn out perfect.
                  Another plus: As opposed to working with a punch or a knife, laser cutting of the foil or film will not result in chipping of paint from the end product.

                  The benefits of a laser cutting machine: Faster than a cutting plotter, more precise than punching dies, and more economical for small series up to 1,000 pieces.

                • Laser marking of watch parts

                  Functional laser marking for part identification and traceability as well as engravings for design purposes are indispensable in the watch industry. While one engraved mechanically or etched in the past, more and more laser machines are now being used for marking tasks. Part numbers, serial numbers and/or charge labeling, as well as data matrix codes, but also decorative markings such as logos and graphics, are applied to watch parts, e.g. clockwork components, oscillation weights, bezels, crowns, housings, watch case backs or dials by means of laser marking. The advantage of the laser here is clearly the high precision so that even the smallest and filigree laser markings can be carried out efficiently, quickly and with high precision on wristwatches.
