See TRUMPF at MEDTEC 2011 - Stand no: 214

More than a decade ago, TRUMPF was the first company to introduce industrial diode-end-pumped marking lasers to the market. This made laser marking fast, economical and reliable. Today its systems are used throughout industry and in the medical technology sector in particular, for high value tasks such as product labelling, traceability and plagiarism protection.


Gaining rapid and accurate measurements of large surface areas is a task which has taxed designers and engineers over many decades.

Interplas 2011 preview: TRUMPF

The TRUMPF TruMark marking lasers are characterised by superior mark quality and a high level of application flexibility. The marks are fast, abrasion-resistant and durable. This is achieved even when the product is moving – marking on the fly – or if the mark has to be performed on several levels without moving the laser or the component. High-contrast marking on plastic materials is achieved by TRUMPF’s superior beam quality and very stable pulse-to-pulse stability.

EMO: Globally successful thanks to common initiative of European machine tool builders

The 19th edition of EMO, the world’s premier trade fair for metal-working technology, will take place in Hannover on 19-24 September this year. EMO is the meeting point for the entire international manufacturing industry and the global-showcase for innovation in manufacturing technology equipment and solutions.

Roemheld Launches Electric Swing Clamp Range

Roemheld has just launched a new range of electric swing clamps that work without hydraulics. Only a 24V direct current is required, making these clamps ideal for applications where the use of hydraulic elements is not possible, where the clamping elements need to be controlled separately or where the clamping force must be obtained after separation from the energy supply.


Roemheld has developed a new system that solves the challenges of clamping free form surfaces for industries such as Aerospace.


The decision to introduce magnetic clamping technology from Roemheld, enabled Koziol, a German-based manufacturer of high-quality plastic design products, to extend the running time of eleven injection moulding machines by many hours.
