The TruMark Station 3000 expands the range of TRUMPF marking work stations with a new solution for a large variety of marking tasks and materials. The new work station is ideal for customers with small and medium lot sizes who now want to finally integrate the process step of marking into their production – and are looking for a simple, safe, and robust industrial work station.
Compact and varied
The TruMark Station 3000 combines simplicity and convenient operation in a marking system for processing medium lot sizes. An optional rotary axis offers flexibility for marking various components. With exterior dimensions of only around 24 in., the TruMark Station 3000 forms a compact marking cube, which provides a true desktop solution in combination with the TruMark 1110 or TruMark 5010 one-box lasers.
The compact marking station is convenient and intuitive to operate and ideal for small and medium lot sizes.
You can combine the TruMark Station 3000 with all marking lasers in the TruMark Series 1000, 3000, and 5000
The safety-monitored laser protection door makes sure that your employees are safe.
Convenient and intuitive operation are just as important as ergonomics.
Local heat input is used to discolor the workpiece surface. The annealing color changes depending on the material and the energy input. The surface stays smooth, which means that dirt cannot be deposited.
During engraving, the laser beam removes part of the base material, thus creating a depression. This may have steep or beveled edges.
If the material and laser wavelength are optimally matched, the dye molecules in the material can be deliberately discolored or faded. The surface remains smooth.
The laser can be used to structure surfaces for a specific function. If the surface is structured with tiny melt elevations, significantly higher adhesion effects can be achieved with the same material properties. If interlocking components are structured after the addition of micro-depressions, the running characteristics improve significantly with the same quantity of lubricant.
Ablation partially removes thin top layers of multi-layer plastics which are applied to the basic material and have very different colors. This process can be used for the day and night design, for example, which is used in the automotive and other industries.

The additional options for the TruMark Station 3000 optimize your production and improve user-friendliness.
A rotary axis with stepping motor enables laser marking of rotationally symmetrical components with a maximum weight of 2.5 kg, including hand-operated chuck with a diameter of 65 mm. You can use a TruMark Station 3000 that has been expanded with this option to produce high-quality circumference marking.
The pilot laser is used to simulate the marking content with a visible red light via a laser diode. This gives you an idea of the marking results in advance so you can position the component in the marking field even more easily.
The integrated exhaust system means that small particles and smoke emissions can be extracted during laser material processing. The system provides the option for remote activation.
In the event of a fault, TRUMPF service experts will remotely access your laser via a secure remote connection. In many cases faults 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.
The external exhaust system enables small particles and smoke emissions to be extracted during laser material processing. There is the option of an extension hose (+ 10 ft. => total length max. 16 ft.). In addition, the system provides the option for remote activation. Depending on the application, you can choose from several models.
There are many focusing lenses available in different focal lengths for all wavelengths of the TruMark Series. You can select the optimum combination of wavelength and focal length for every application.
The TruMark Station 3000 can also be expanded into a standalone version with a base and monitor arm. The TruMark Station 3000 can then be used comfortably as a standing work station. The standalone version is adapted for the chosen laser source. In the one-box lasers, for example, the required exhaust system can be housed in the base. Alternatively, if the TruMark Series 3000 or TruMark Series 5000 is integrated, the supply unit is positioned in the same place.
The TruTops Mark marking software makes marking with the TruMark lasers as easy as possible. The TruTops Mark program combines the marking software, CAD editor, management of laser parameters and interfaces, sequence programming with QuickFlow, and a diagnostics tool. An intuitive interface puts all the functions at your fingertips. You can easily draw and arrange graphic objects with the CAD editor. The database for laser parameters enables you to re-use optimized parameters many times over. You can use the QuickFlow sequence programming to create "pick-and-drop" programs that control the complete marking cycle from beginning to end. The diagnostics tool visualizes and analyzes the analog measured values recorded by its sensors.
The TruMark Station 3000 is optimally tailored to the marking lasers of the TruMark Series and so offers the right solution for any application.
