FARMINGTON, Conn., Dec. 3, 2012 — Trumpf Inc. has introduced the TruMark 6350 laser with improvements in design and performance compared with prior versions of the UV marking laser. Improved laser parameters enable increased cost efficiency and high-quality marks with a broader range of applications. Increased average power with the same good beam quality leads to an increase in repetition rates and higher processing speeds. The higher pulse peak power and pulse energy result in increased mark contrast across a variety of materials, especially in applications such as color change on plastics and glass marking. The passively cooled laser also features enhancements to the optical setup, including a 50% reduction in the time needed to achieve the ideal crystal temperature prior to marking, fewer temperature influences on the process and an increase in the lifetime of the laser marking system.
