With the TruMark 7050 model, Trumpf presents a particularly versatile laser system that is suitable for cleaning metallic surfaces, for example, or for roughening surfaces in preparation for adhesive bonding.

At the Photonics West trade show in San Francisco, Trumpf will be showing the TruMark 7050 laser system, which is particularly versatile. "This laser system is more than just a marking laser. It is a multifunction tool with high performance. Users save money with this premium system because they don't have to buy multiple 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. Scanner and software are already integrated. Trumpf has also already ensured a very high level of laser safety. "After commissioning the laser, the user can operate it in just a few steps and start working immediately," says Breitenborn.

The laser is suitable for numerous highly productive applications in various industries with very short cycle times. Users can join different types of metals with the TruMark 7050 using spot welding. Companies can 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. But the TruMark 7050 is also suitable for cleaning metallic surfaces of a variety of materials, such as oil, rust, or even organic residues. 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.
