Maximum flexibility: Two laser sources in one laser system

Our patented Flexx Technology™ integrates two laser sources, CO2 and fiber, in one machine. This thereby allows several different materials to be processed in one operation, thus enhancing your productivity and efficiency. CO2 lasers are specially suited for engraving and cutting materials such as plastics, wood, rubber and leather to name a few. The fiber laser source, on the other hand, is ideal for marking metals and staining plastics.

One laser machine processes several different materials

The biggest advantage of the patented flexx function is that the two laser sources are activated alternately without the manual changing of the laser tube, lens or focus. The laser sources are simply assigned via the touch of a button in the JobControl® software. This not only enhances flexibility and efficiency, but also provides customers with the opportunity to easily expand their existing product range.

"Ready for flexx"

Did you know that every laser machine in our Speedy Series is "ready for flexx"? This means that our Speedy machines can be retrofitted with an additional laser source at any time.


Material overview for CO2 and fiber laser source

With the Speedy flexx laser machines, you can process a wide range of materials. 

  Material CO2 Fiber
Non-Metal Wood  
  Glass  
  Paper  
  Textiles  
  Leather  
  Stone  
  Food  
  Ceramic  
Plastics ABS; PC; PA, PMMA ...
  Rubber
  Laminates
  Foam
Metal Aluminium  
  Anodised Aluminium
  Brass  
  Coated Metal  
  Chrome  
  Copper  
  Precious metals (Gold, Silver, Platinum)  
  High speed steel  
  Stainless Steel  
  Titanium  

The above metals can also be processed with a CO2 laser. This requires an additional work step and the use of consumables, e.g. laser marking sprays.


MOPA Laser: Even more possibilities for laser marking metals and plastics

Trotec has yet again set new standards in laser technology with the introduction of the new Speedy 400. The patented Flexx Technology™ has been further enhanced to provide higher-contrast markings on plastics and black markings on anodised aluminium. This is thanks to the MOPA fiber laser, which is integrated in the flatbed system, as opposed to a conventional fiber laser source.

In addition to the improved quality of laser marking, productivity is also another advantage of the MOPA laser. Marks, or deep engravings of equivalent quality, can be processed faster than when compared to a conventional fiber laser.

Advantages of conventional fiber laser sources:

  • Maintenance-free
  • Long service life
  • Air-cooled
  • Economic purchase price

Increase your productivity and flexibility with the MOPA fiber laser and achieve higher-contrast and more legible results.

The patented Flexx Technology™ and the MOPA fiber laser are available for the Speedy Laser Engraver series.
