Trumpf has become the first manufacturer of laser marking systems to
connect a laser directly to SAP R/3 via a standard printer interface.
TruMark marking lasers can now be hooked up and integrated with SAP
systems just as easily as conventional inkjet and toner printers. The
connection is established using the driver interface for printers
included in the SAP Printer Vendor program. The marking laser takes on
the role of a printer, with the surface of the workpiece replacing the
label or paper. This allows users to work from within the SAP system to
apply company logos, model designations, codes and serial numbers to
parts using a laser – without requiring any programming skills or
additional software. The laser parameters required for a wide range of
materials are included as part of the marking software package.
Support for the SAP standard eliminates the need to invest in and
maintain additional hardware and software, and direct marking of parts
minimizes the use of consumables by applying the labeling information
directly to the parts themselves. The surface markings are robust and
durable and are designed to last for the duration of the product's
The decision to use a standard interface hugely simplifies the
integration process. TRUMPF’s new SAP driver is the perfect tool
for customers with business models which use SAP to process orders
immediately prior to dispatch, moving from the webshop to the labeling
stage without switching between multiple media.
