Videojet launches new laser marking systems designed for precise, permanent marking and easy integration
New Videojet 3350 30-Watt CO2 laser series delivers next-level flexibility to adapt rapidly to changing production needs
Wood Dale, Illinois – 09, June 2023 – In response to manufacturers’ demands for high-performance laser marking solutions, Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking and printing solutions, has added to its successful range of CO2 lasers with the introduction of the Videojet 3350 and Videojet 3350 Smart Focus 30-watt CO2 laser marking systems. The lasers are designed to mark sharp, complex codes at high speeds in the food, beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, packaging and extrusion industries. Both systems offer virtually unlimited font, code and graphic options.
Manufacturers who mark on products and packaging of varying sizes and who perform frequent product changeovers require flexible coding and marking systems to keep production lines running efficiently. The new Videojet 3350 laser’s flexible marking head includes 32 standard beam delivery options, while the 3350 Smart Focus laser’s marking head provides 0° to 90° rotation without the need for additional parts.
The advanced 3350 Smart Focus laser is equipped with cutting-edge automatic focusing and dynamic marking capabilities for easy product changeovers without moving the laser. The Smart Focus option enables multi-level marking with the benefit of an auto-adjustable focal distance, uniform flat field correction, a pilot beam focus finder, and a flexible range/size mode. These features help to reduce operator touches, improve mark quality, and increase uptime.
“We know that manufacturers are facing new and ever-changing production challenges, and they need high-performance lasers to meet their increasing production requirements,” stated Letizia Caselle, Business Unit Director for Videojet. “With the innovative features of the new 3350 CO2 Smart Focus laser system, users can now mark different sized products or on multiple levels on the same product without needing to adjust the laser. Fewer manual adjustments result in more uptime and higher throughput for today’s production environments.”
Both new Videojet 3350 series lasers offer high-speed marking capabilities to print text, bar codes, graphics, and other information at speeds up to 2,000 characters per second. The high-resolution marking head delivers high-quality, permanent codes to support product traceability and anti-counterfeiting.
The variety of lenses offered with the 3350 laser deliver one of the industry’s largest marking areas. Multiple marking heads and wavelengths provide the flexibility to code a wide range of materials including plastics, wood, glass, ceramics, and coated metals.
The laser systems are engineered to help users meet their Industry 4.0 goals with built-in Wi-Fi and cellular connections that help to minimise IT workload and reduce the cost of connecting equipment to a network. Housed in an access box, these Wi-Fi and cellular connections enable easy software updates and fewer service interactions while improving overall equipment efficiency with the availability of more production information.
“The integrated Wi-Fi and cellular connections provide simple and secure ways for users to communicate and gather data from the 3350 laser marking systems,” said Caselle. “Videojet designed these ‘born digital’ lasers with built-in connectivity options to deliver powerful, dependable and easy-to-use marking solutions that are well-suited for consumer-packaged goods and industrial production lines.”
A remote interface control takes advantage of a web server that allows users to access the lasers via supported web browsers on host computers. Optional VideojetConnect™ Remote Service allows both Videojet and in-house technicians to monitor a laser’s status, troubleshoot issues, and improve long-term performance.
