Videojet Technologies 50-Watt Fiber Laser
In response to manufacturers’ requirements to laser mark on plastic packaging, metal containers and other industrial products faster with more code content, Videojet Technologies introduced a 50-Watt fiber laser marking system – the Videojet 7510 – to complement its existing 10-Watt and 20-Watt fiber laser offering.
The new 7510 marking laser is engineered for high speed beverage, pharmaceutical and extrusion manufacturers that need to code data such as expiry information, lot numbers, batch numbers and other critical production information onto robust materials including plastics such as High-density Polyethylene (HDP), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polypropylene (PP) and Nylon, as well as metals such as aluminum and stainless steel.
For substrates like aluminum and extruded plastics, the new 50-Watt fiber is 65-95 percent faster than the 20-Watt offering in short product pitch applications. The company says pharmaceutical companies can achieve up to 50 percent faster coding on blister packs and over double the speed on vials when compared to using the 20-Watt fiber.
