Time-saving laser technology for working models

Model-making is a substantial portion of training for master roofers. The craftsmen work on projects and models that tie into their daily practice. The laser is used for cutting and engraving models made of flat roofing and cladding materials. For this purpose, practice materials are cut from e.g. gray cardboard, plywood, or acrylic glass in thicknesses of 1 to 3 mm.

"We were looking for a modern technology that could replace the time-consuming and laborious manual processing, e.g. cutting out the different roof tile shapes. It was important for us to have a manufacturer from the region where we not only receive a quality product but also German-speaking support. That's why our choice quickly fell on Trotec Laser."

HWK Düsseldorf first came across the Trotec Speedy 100 laser engraver at a tradeshow event and found it met all of their needs for a laser system. In the end, Trotec was the final choice due to price/performance ratio.
