Compact Videojet 7210 and 7310 Fiber Laser Coders

For Immediate Release

WOOD DALE, Ill. (USA)— August 22, 2008 — The new Videojet® 7210 and 7310 fiber laser coders from Videojet Technologies Inc. are compact, versatile and highly reliable for applications such as direct parts marking and unique identification coding on a variety of metal, plastic and other hard-to-mark materials. Available in 10 and 20 watts of output power respectively, the Videojet® 7210 and 7310 fiber laser markers provide a compact mechanical design with one of the smallest marking heads of its kind and straight-out or 90-degree beam options for increased versatility in tight spaces. Less-frequent maintenance intervals maximize uptime and reduce costs.

“Combining superior high-speed scanning technology, powerful software supports and a choice of standard or high-resolution marking heads, the Videojet® 7210 and 7310 are the smallest and easiest to integrate pulsed fiber laser coders available worldwide,” says Dr. Manfred Suddendorf, product manager for Videojet’s Laser Business Unit. “The Videojet® 7210 and 7310 set up quickly and integrate seamlessly into even the most complex and tight production lines.”

The new laser coders use a maintenance free, air-cooled Ytterbium Fiber Laser source instead of a gas laser tube or a laser rod which are used in CO2 gas and Nd:YAG solid state laser coders. Both Videojet® 7210 and 7310 can quickly apply complex variable data such as high-quality identification matrix codes, bar codes, logos and serial numbers, on moving as well as static products. They also can mark a wide range of metal, ceramic or plastic parts with uncompromising quality, and are ideally suited for demanding marking applications, such as automotive and electronic parts, medical devices, tools and other instruments.

Additional advantages of the Videojet® 7210 and 7310 laser coders include further ease of integration due to the systems dovetail joint, the ability to choose from a selection of languages displayed on the user interface, along with password-protected security levels provided by the proven Windows®-based SmartGraph™ software. With high reliability and no consumables such as inks, solvents or compressed air required, the laser marking systems set standards for economical and maintenance-free operation.

The launch of the Videojet® fiber laser coder family expands Videojet’s® broad product identification portfolio. Videojet now offers all laser marking solutions, from CO2 to Nd:YAG to fiber laser coding.
