With its ultrashort laser pulses, the TruMicro Mark series is the ideal partner for applying high-quality UDI codes. Legislators around the world subject medical technology to high quality standards in terms of permanent readability and corrosion resistance. Therefore black marking has become the process of choice.
Comprehensive solution for marking applications with ultra-short pulses
The TruMicro Mark Series is characterised by maximum process reliability and precision. By using multi-level laser power control and monitoring the pulse energy for each individual pulse, you achieve precise marking results that meet the highest standards, especially in areas such as medical technology. Whether you are working with complex 3D free-form geometries or scanning marking content, the TruMicro Mark series in combination with image processing software is available as a turnkey solution. This gives you a wide range of options for "cold" microprocessing and surface modification.
Limited edition engraving of a Junghans watch
The limited edition Meister S Chronoscope Platin Edition 160 from the watch and clock maker Junghans gets watch enthusiasts' pulses racing around the world. Only twelve watches will be marketed. The edition engraving along with the limited edition number was applied to precious platinum by a TruMicro Mark 2030 in a TruMark Station 7000.
The TruMicro Mark 1020 and 2030 can implement a colour change in metals, up to and including deep black, which is known as black marking. Ultrashort laser pulses hardly create any heat in the material during processing. The amount of free chromium in the stainless steel thereby remains high enough for a self-healing layer of chromium oxide to form on the surface – the marking on stainless steel thereby becomes corrosion-resistant. Black marking is therefore especially well-suited for creating the mandatory markings in medical technology.
The TruMicro Mark 1020 structures complex freeform 3D component shapes, like those of a gecko, with incomparable quality.
Laser marking in medical technology
Traceability is extremely important in the manufacture of products in medical technology, which is why machine-readable markings are very important. With the TruMicro Mark series, the type and form of the marking is not subject to any limits in the following tasks: UDI-compliant product markings in clear text and barcode or data matrix code for product traceability, micro-marking in the range of hundredths of millimetres, or graphics of the highest quality.
Unlimited Black Marking (3D)
The TruMicro Mark 1020, in particular, uses unlimited black marking to mark complex three-dimensional objects such as this stent tube from Alpine Laser in free form, giving it deep black and corrosion-resistant properties.

TruTops Mark 3D
3D marking with TRUMPF marking lasers has never been so quick and easy. Our user-friendly TruTops Mark 3D software significantly shortens processing times. You can now mark multiple objects in the volume with a single laser system, even on inclined and curved surfaces. In addition to the marking software, we offer a comprehensive 3D CAD editor to create workpieces and derive 3D marking drawings.
With useful added options you can work even more efficiently and with more process reliability with your TruMicro Mark.
The pilot laser is used to simulate the marking content with a visible red light via a laser diode. This means that you get an impression of the marking results in advance and can position the component in the marking field even more easily.
With VisionLine image processing, you get additional quality assurance for your production. Whether workpiece recognition or reading and evaluating Data Matrix Codes – thanks to its modular structure, we always have the right solution for your process.
Our software solutions enable you to easily connect the marking system to your external peripherals or database. This allows you to read out and write back production-relevant data. Use this complete integration to increase your efficiency and ensure smooth processes in your production.
Interfaces are key for the integration of a TruMicro Mark laser into your machine or production line. The solid-state lasers from TRUMPF offer interfaces to all common fieldbus systems.
In the event of a fault, TRUMPF service experts will remotely access your laser via a secure remote connection. In many cases the fault can be remedied directly in this way, or the configuration of the laser can be modified in a way that permits you to continue manufacturing until the spare part arrives.
QCW is used to melt the surface, giving a glossy surface finish.
Burst mode is the first choice when coarse processing, such as deep engraving, is needed. The number of pulses and their intensity can be controlled, allowing better control over the engraving depth.
In our work station product portfolio you will find the ideal work station for your particular workpiece size and application complexity. This includes small, compact marking stations and systems for particularly large components. We also offer automation options.
This product range and information may vary depending on the country. Subject to changes to technology, equipment, price and range of accessories. Please get in touch with your local contact person to find out whether the product is available in your country.
