The Screen as a "Virtual Laser Machine"

Never strain or search for laser jobs in a tiny window ever again! JobControl® allows you to take full advantage of your big, bright computer monitor, enabling the user to move and position jobs freely from the job list to any position in the "virtual laser machine" and begin a job without leaving your chair or touching the machine. Productivity and practicality are our goals.

Material Database: The Heart of JobControl®

Pre-tested, default settings for nearly all standard Trotec materials help you to achieve the best possible engraving and cutting results straight out of the box with zero guesswork. In addition, you can also create your own material templates, which can be saved and managed independently to your liking.

Processing via Color Mapping:

Set processing settings such as 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 delicate materials.
  • Webs: By interrupting the cutting line at defined intervals cut parts do not fall away from the raw material. This is very useful when producing entire stamp plates or filigree cutouts.
All settings are carried out in a single production step - No additional work steps are required!

Import/Export of Laser Parameters:

Easy import and export of your material parameters for creating a backup copy or for use on another computer.

Administrator Mode:

The administrator is able to lock individual materials, material groups or the entire material database. Consequently, elaborated parameters will never be lost.

JobControl® Vision: Software for precise laser finishing of printed materials

The software uses registration marks to determine the position and rotation of printed material on the laser’s work area. In addition, all distortions – linear and non-linear – are detected by the intelligent JobControl® Vision camera in the printed area.

JobControl® Cut: Get a perfect cutting result in a few easy steps

With JobControl® Cut, Trotec offers laser cutting software for high-quality and efficient laser cutting. CAM functionalities such as kerf correction, lead-in flags, path optimization or node processing enable precise and productive laser cutting. Directly integrated into JobControl®.

The highlights of JobControl® at a glance:

Efficient job management

  • Every job sent to your laser is stored in a clearly laid out list. Filter by name, date, process type, resolution, etc. All jobs can be repeated at any time with just one click.
  • Job favorites allow you to save laser settings (size, resolution, material, cut lines, etc.) for frequently recurring jobs. This saves setup time and prevents errors.
  • From the queue, a job can be placed on the work surface as often as required and in a space-optimized manner. Duplicate and rotate jobs easily.

Precise work with positioning aids

  • Guides: Optimal for precise work. Position your job exactly where your material is on the table and save on waste.
  • Marker: Magnetic positioning aids allow you to quickly and easily design your own job templates. These can be saved and used for recurring jobs.


  • „What you see is what you get.“ Check your print output with a true to original on-screen representation to avoid material wastage.

Photo-optimized engraving

  • For perfect and pin sharp engraved pictures.


  • Extremely accurate automatic focusing with just one click. The engraving result, material thickness, focal length of the lens, cutting table, etc. can all be saved in the material database. The software calculates the correct position to engrave precisely at the focal point - this achieves the best engraving result.

Engraving Time Calculator

  • Indicates how long laser processing will take in advance. This allows you to calculate and plan properly.

MeshEngraving for optimal engraving results at maximum speed

  • A fast engraving speed creates a minimal distortion in the engraving image. To optimize the engraving result, the patented MeshEngraving was integrated into the JobControl® laser software. So engraving at the highest speed and optimum quality is possible. This is particularly important for fiber laser applications.

Maximum engraving resolution of up to 2540 dpi

  • The engraving resolution of up to 2540 dpi enables the engraving of high-resolution screen printing plates, the annealing marking of metal or the recoloring of aluminum with the fiber laser.
