Trotec's Air Assist technology supplies a concentrated stream of air from the laser head. Air Assist is automatically switched on and off by the JobControl® laser software. Your Trotec laser system may be equipped with both the Air Assist mechanism and pump. However, if your laser does not have a preinstalled pump, all you have to do is connect an external compressor.
Air Assist improves a laser's cutting and engraving results because the air stream removes residue from a workpiece. Hence, discolouration resulting from debris being burned onto the material's surface is avoided. Furthermore, this feature prevents dust from aggregating on the lens, thereby lessening the risk of damage.
