Accurately adjusted axis drives and an innovative control technology guarantee that Laser cutting with Trotec systems is fast and accurate. Unlike in cutting plotters, there is no material resistance when using the laser. As a result, working with the laser is faster. Another plus: It is not necessary to lift or turn the laser beam with a knife. Trotec laser systems make full use of this advantage in speed and detail, especially when working with fine geometries.
