Videojet® 3140

Increase throughput and productivity with the Videojet 3140 laser marking system, engineered to mark high-quality codes at moderate speeds.

The Videojet 10-Watt 3140 CO laser marking system offers all of the performance features found in higher wattage Videojet lasers, but with a power source better matched for moderate line speed applications.
With print speeds up to 2000 characters/sec. and line speeds up to 900m/min., the 3140 laser solution is ideal for both simple and complex codes across a range of substrates including paperboard, glass, painted metal, paper labels, PET and other plastic materials.

Uptime Advantage

  • Maximum performance and extended laser source life expectancy up to 45,000 hours through optimized total power output
  • Air-cooled laser source virtually eliminates maintenance intervals
  • Line set up wizard, available with optional CLARiTYTM Laser Controller, aids fast product changeovers, eliminating set up trial and error and minimizing planned downtime

Built-in productivity

  • Largest marking window in the industry offers optimally matched applications for higher throughput
  • On-screen diagnostics, available with optional CLARiTYTM Laser Controller, track causes of downtime and help troubleshooting to get the line back up and running quickly

Code Assurance

  • Optional CLARiTYTM Laser Controller offers built-in software features that help reduce operator errors and ensure products are coded correctly
  • High-quality, permanent codes help assure product traceability and tamper-proofing
  • High-resolution marking head delivers consistent, crisp codes

Simple usability

  • Most flexible integration solution with 32 standard beam delivery options
  • Quick set up and easy redeployment via detachable umbilical cable for easy routing on the line and simple-to-use accessory connections
  • 5 interface options plus a choice of networking communications to match your preferred workflow
