Trotec and the environment

We are committed to environmental protection

As part of the Trodat Group, Trotec also set a good example in the field of climate protection. As early as 1993 the Trodat group had already begun implementing measures to ensure better energy use, at a time when the strict Austrian environmental laws had not reached their current standard.

Attention to detail is paid to the handling of raw materials and to the efficient use of energy throughout the value added process. Our laser machines and the latest filter technology allow us to offer customer production systems which do not require the use of chemicals in the laser engraving, laser cutting or laser marking process.

In 2008, we were awarded EN ISO14001:2004 certification
