New Videojet 3430 Laser Coder Features Best-in-Class Speeds, Flexible Integration

For Immediate Release

WOOD DALE, Ill. (USA) – May 30, 2007 – Combining high-speed coding and 50 watts of laser power in one mobile unit, the new Videojet® 3430 laser marking system from Videojet Technologies Inc. provides best-in-class speeds for high-throughput lines and an IP65-rated housing for increased reliability, even in dirty and wet environments. Flexible system components like an articulated arm and a small marking head provide seamless integration in tight production line areas.

“With marking speeds up to 2,000 characters per second and line speeds up to 50 feet per second, the Videojet 3430 delivers the highest speeds in its class,” says Dr. Dietmar Gnass, director of research and development for Videojet’s Laser Business Unit. “No other laser coder provides such high data throughput and permanent, crisp quality marks without degradation of code clarity.”

The Videojet 3430 is ideally suited for applications demanding fast and flexible data transfer and marking processes, such as beverage, brewing, food, packaging, and extrusion applications. Moderate-speed lines, such as those in the personal care products, pharmaceuticals and industrial component industries, will also benefit from the superior speed and resolution of the Videojet 3430 laser.

Because of its integrated user interface, small marking head, and flexible, articulated arm, the laser integrates quickly and easily into any production line and allows the system to be moved to different lines as coding needs change. The IP65-rated stainless steel housing and self-contained cooling system ensure high uptime even in dirty, dusty and wet environments.
Additional advantages of the Videojet 3430 include the ability to choose from languages for display on the user interface, and the password-protected security levels provided by the proven Windows®-based SmartGraph™ software. With high reliability and no consumables as inks, solvents or compressed air required, the system sets new standards for economical and maintenance-free operation.

The launch of the Videojet 3430 completes a full line of best-in-class, state-of-the-art laser marking systems from Videojet. This family of laser coders includes the 10-watt Videojet 3120, the 30-watt Videojet 3320 and the 50-watt Videojet 3430 systems.
