Videojet 7340 and 7440 marking systems feature 'world's smallest laser marking head'

Share this on social media:

The new Videojet 7340 and 7440 fibre laser marking systems from Videojet Technologies are the first to feature Lightfoot, the world’s smallest laser marking head.

The Videojet 7340 (20W) and 7440 (30W) fibre lasers offer improved ease-of-use and integration. The compact design addresses the needs of manufacturers working within small spaces and are ideal for contract packagers and OEMs in the consumer packaged goods, parts marking and pharmaceutical industries.

The Lightfoot fibre laser marking head is designed specifically to meet strict IP69K requirements, making it suitable for use in washdown and harsh environments. The marking head is the smallest in the industry, both in weight and size, at less than 1kg and measuring 205mm. The compact and flexible marking head requires less mounting bracketry and enables fast setup and repositioning to increase the range of installation opportunities. Measuring just 41mm in diameter, it is designed to fit almost anywhere on a customer’s line while achieving optimal focus and power density without trading off on code quality.

The 7340 and 7440 models offer marking speeds of up to 2,000 characters per second on high-density packaging substrates across a wide range of materials including metals, plastics and foils, without compromising on code quality, uptime performance, code length or content. The lasers feature an integrated pilot beam focus finder, offering easy, fast and precise focal alignment during the installation process or when frequent line or product changeovers are required. The Videojet 7340 and 7440 fibre laser options include: 0° and 90° marking heads, three focal distances and two umbilical length options (3m and 10m).
