It just keeps getting easier!

JobControl® is a great, innovative software that makes controlling your Trotec laser machine simple and seamless. It enables you to fine-tune your laser processing efficiently and quickly. Good software will adapt to the way you work - not the other way around. JobControl® is an intuitively user-friendly software package that allows you to take full control of every single one of your laser machine’s functions. The open software architecture allows you to work within your usual graphics program (CorelDraw, Photoshop, AutoCAD, Adobe Illustrator, etc) and send your work to the machine via the printer driver - it's as simple as printing!

The screen is a "virtual laser machine"

JobControl® completely redefines laser operation and operator efficiency. You can use your computer monitor to view and edit your projects, instead of searching for your jobs on a tiny, mini display on the laser machine itself. By clicking the screen, you can move engraving jobs around, start and pause processes, make changes to the laser's path and much more. JobControl® makes laser processing so easy. It even includes many useful and intelligent functions that are otherwise impossible using another laser software. Your productivity is our goal, and we want the most for you and your business.

JobControl® Highlights:

Job Favorites

You can easily save laser settings (size, material, resolution, cut lines, etc) for common and repetitive jobs. Saves the setup time and reduces the risk of errors.

WYSIWYG

"What you see is what you get!" You can check your print output with a true and real-time on-screen representation to avoid material wastage.

Autofocus

Achieve extremely accurate automatic focusing with a simple click. The engraving result, material thickness, focal length of the lens, cutting table and more can all be saved within the material database. The software calculates the correct position to engrave precisely at the focal length, achieving the best possible engraving results every single time. 

Job Management

Every job that is sent to your laser will be stored in a clearly labelled list. You can filter by name, date, process type, resolution, etc. All jobs can be repeated at any time with just one click.

Bi-Directional Communication

Your laser and JobControl® are in constant communication with one another. Thanks to this, you will always know where your job is on the work surface, how it is progressing and you can control your laser 100%.

Guides

These are ideal for precision work - you can position your job exactly where your material is on the table and avoid material wastage.

Duplicate & Rotate Jobs

Directly from the queue, a job can be placed onto the working surface as often as needed and in a space-optimised manner. Duplicate and rotate your jobs with the click of a button.

Marker

Magnetic positioning aids allow you to quickly and easily create your very own job templates. These can be saved and used for recurring tasks, saving you a lot of time in the future.

Engraving Time Calculator

This will indicate how long your laser processing will take in advance, allowing you to calculate and plan appropriately.

Photo-Optimised Engraving

For perfect, precise and pin sharp engraved photos.

Enhanced Geometries

Cutting lines are transferred to the laser machine in perfect arcs/tool paths. This ensures optimum cutting results on all materials, every time.

Material Database: The Heart of JobControl®

Predefined settings for different standard materials can help you achieve the best possible engraving and cutting results.
Additionally, you can also save and manage your own materials.

Processing via Colour Mapping:

Define processing settings like engraving or cutting, speed, power level, number of passes, Z-offset, etc. by colors:

  • Automatic Z-Axis Control: Helpful for objects with different focal point positions.
  • Multiple Engraving Passes: Allows you to achieve the best possible engraving or cutting quality when dealing with sensitive materials
  • Webs: By interrupting the cutting line at defined intervals, cut-outs do not fall away from the raw material. This is very useful when producing entire stamp plates or filigree cut-outs.

All settings are carried out in a single production step. No additional work steps are required.

Importing & Exporting Laser Parameters:

Easily import and export your material parameters and create backup copies or for use on other PCs.
