About Trotec

Leading international developer and manufacturer of laser machines.

The home for all laser users.

Our vision is to be a “home” for all laser users. A place where you get technology, opportunities, guidance and – above all – answers. Along the way, we’re making work simpler, faster and more profitable for laser users. We’re setting new standards. Day after day. To be successful today and tomorrow.

Made in Austria.

We’re a leading international developer and manufacturer of laser machines headquartered in Marchtrenk, Austria. The birth of laser technology in our group of companies happened back in 1991, with the then revolutionary idea of using CO2 laser machines to produce text plates, precisely and under the highest quality standards, which laid the foundation for Trotec’s development history and the digitisation of the stamp industry. Today, we have 17 sales offices with a total of +750 employees. The export quota is 97%. Our machines are used in more than 90 countries around the world.

Wherever you are, we’re close by

Constantly setting new standards for your success.

Our mission is to make the work of laser users easier, faster and more profitable. In order to achieve this goal, we’ve consistently been setting new standards in technology, consulting and service since Trotec was founded, with a clear focus on our customers’ needs.

Where Trotec is setting new standards

How we’re successful together.

In order to survive in business, engravers and sign shops need to stay competitive online, manufacturers need to simplify their manufacturing processes and educational institutions need to keep adding the latest technologies to their curriculum. In a world in which the digital transformation is changing everything, manufacturing is becoming more and more complex and laser technology enables almost everything, laser users need a “home”. We are a reliable partner and see the success of laser users as our responsibility.

Austrian Engineering

We develop all core components of our laser engravers, cutters and marking machines 100% ourselves; this includes drive systems, machine components, controls, electronics, electrics and software. The laser source – the so-called heart of the laser – is entirely produced by our sister company “Iradion Laser”. Our production sites and manufacturing lines in Austria, Germany, USA and China are organised according to the lean manufacturing model known from the automotive industry. For standard industrial components such as motors, power supply units or touch displays, we rely on renowned manufacturers such as Siemens, Beckhoff or TDK-Lambda. Like us, these companies are commited to the highest quality standards.

From laser user to laser expert.

The Trotec Academy offers laser training courses and seminars on laser basics such as material processing, laser cutting and laser engraving. Laser users and materials customers receive valuable tips and advice from our experienced application specialists. You also have the option of bringing along your material and getting personal tips from our Trotec Academy trainers.

Trotec Academy

Our laser know-how for your economic advantage.

Laser power, speed, frequency, wavelength, pulse width, air assist and focus length are common terms in laser processing. But what do they mean and how do you determine the correct laser parameters for the material? We employ a worldwide network of application engineers who are experts in handling Trotec laser machines. Their tasks include carrying out the feasibility studies on customer materials (application tests) and supporting the sales teams in demonstrations. In addition, the application engineers constantly develop new applications and material samples for which Trotec laser machines can be used.

Our product portfolio includes laser and engraving materials as well as laser machines. This gives our customers the advantage of being able to obtain everything from a single source, and being able to rely on our many years of know-how in material processing. All the materials we offer are tested and selected by our experts.
