An intelligent future. Connected machines for the laser user.

“Laser machines will be fully digitalised in the future.” says Dr. Andreas Penz, Managing Director of Trotec Laser GmbH. “The Trotec team has been working intensively on a new generation of software for years. The scalable software architecture has been developed from scratch. Now customer requests can be addressed much faster. With Ruby® we’re setting new standards once more. Our customers will benefit from day one and they’ll be able to follow the digital change of our time in a future-proof manner." Penz outlines Trotec’s mission and the importance of digitalisation.

Graphic design software for the laser machine. For a seamless workflow.

You can create graphic, photo and text elements and make adjustments quickly with the integrated workflow. With all the graphics tools that laser users need. Ruby® allows the direct import of files such as pdf, svg, png, ai, etc. The complicated process of printing out the laser job from the graphics program is no longer necessary. Penz summarises: “These functionalities cut the time from idea to finished product in half.”

Connected working. Multiple lasers, infinite numbers of users, access anytime and anywhere.

Ruby® connects all laser machines in a single network either locally or remotely. In this way, jobs can be distributed from multiple PCs or Macs to multiple laser machines. Jobs are loaded onto the integrated storage of the laser machine and processed without an additional PC. Thanks to the innovative workflow, jobs can be prepared by one user and produced by another at anytime and from anywhere, such as the office, home or the workshop. With this integrated, split workflow, Trotec is breaking new ground in user management.

Work with MAC or PC. Platform and client independence.

For operators of laser machines, the new web-based laser software offers options that have been in demand for a long time but were previously unthinkable: complete independence from the operating system or the client.

Ruby® and Speedy 400 laser engraver become one – the fastest, most intelligent laser in the world.

Ruby® – the most intelligent laser software and the Speedy 400, the world’s fastest laser engraver, have become one. “Speedy 400 Run on Ruby®”: A touch panel on the laser machine makes it possible to operate the laser in the network via Ethernet or WiFi without an additional PC.
