Welding, engraving, cleaning: TruMark 7050 is the Swiss Army Knife of the lasers
Ditzingen/San Francisco (USA), January 31, 2023 – TRUMPF is showing the TruMark 7050 laser system, a particularly versatile tool, at the Photonics West trade show in San Francisco. "This laser system is more than just a marking laser. It is a multifunctional tool with high performance. Users save money with this premium system because they don't have to buy different lasers for different applications," says Holger Breitenborn, Product Manager responsible for Marking Systems at TRUMPF. The high-tech company supplies the TruMark 7050 as a ready-to-use solution. A scanner and software are already integrated. TRUMPF has also already ensured a very high level of laser safety. "After putting the laser into operation, the user can operate it in just a few steps and start working immediately," says Breitenborn.
Applications in all industries
The laser is suitable for a number of highly productive applications in various industries with very short process cycle times. Users can join different types of metals with the TruMark 7050 using spot welding, for example, copper with aluminum or brass. "This capability is particularly in demand for e-mobility applications," says Breitenborn. Companies can very easily integrate the TruMark 7050 marking and material processing laser into their flow production. The automotive industry also uses the laser for deep-engraving vehicle identification numbers into the body of cars. "Here, short process times are required, which the TruMark 7050, with its high power and fast switching cycles, makes possible. This laser with 200 watts of average power is virtually unrivaled in its performance class," says Breitenborn.
But the TruMark 7050 is also suitable for cleaning metallic surfaces of a variety of materials, such as oil, rust, or even organic residues. Large bakeries, for example, use the laser to remove baked-on contaminants from baking trays. In many other industries, users also use the TruMark 7050 to roughen surfaces. The laser creates regularly arranged geometries on the metal. Individual components of such a structure are often only a few micrometers in size. Such laser structuring is suitable, for example, for preparing adhesive joints. The adhesive adheres better to the metal after roughening.
