Trotec is launching a brand new laser marker, the U300, with a marking area of up to 190 x 190mm at the Sign Africa and FESPA Africa Expo, taking place from 11-13 September at Gallagher Convention Centre.

It has been developed to produce small markings on plastics and metals in the shortest times. With the U series laser markers, individual single pieces as well as small and medium batches can be marked quickly and easily.

Thanks to the maintenance-free fibre laser source, plastic can be recoloured and metal permanently marked directly. The new series has been developed especially for job shoppers, engravers and machine builders.

The UMark software enables you to mark your information on the object in no time at all. This allows you to generate codes, import data files or graphics, and create texts. The software also has a material database so that you can mark with the correct parameters as quickly as possible. You can also add your own parameters to this database.

The special highlight of the U Series is the Bordermarking function – this allows you to project the surface to be marked or even the contour onto the component at any time, position it in real time and, if necessary, correct it with a mouse click.
