Laser Cutter in Education and Schools

Use of laser cutters in schools: safe, contactless and digital from the idea to the finished product. With a wide variety of materials.

What makes the use of laser cutters in schools so exciting?

How do you turn product ideas into prototypes in just a few steps? With a laser cutter, pupils and students can quickly create their first scale models: Whether in model making, design or fashion. Many schools, Makerspaces, FabLabs and universities are already using a laser as one of their digital tools. 

Laser cutter projects in schools convey the working methods of digital manufacturing safely and quickly.  Modifications to prototypes are quick, easy and require little time or money. The process from the idea to the finished workpiece is mapped digitally throughout. .

What can be done.

How to calculate the cost of using a laser machine.

When acquiring a laser cutter for schools or Makerspaces, the investment costs need to be broken down in terms of both users and service life. These examples show how to calculate the costs of using the laser so that the costs are covered.
Investment and operating costs are included in the calculation.

Let’s do the math together.
We support you and your pupils and students from the idea until long after installation of the laser machine.

What our customers say.

"Trotec Laser is interesting for us for several reasons. Firstly, the lasers themselves are very high-quality devices. On the other hand, regional connections are important to us, which enables us to provide rapid service on site and supports an active exchange of information about new developments and improvements."

"Having a Trotec laser engraving machine has been a really good drawcard in getting people into the Makerspace. When they learn more about it and realize how versatile and useful it is, they often stay here a lot longer and build projects around it. It is also really valuable because all of our members get to use it."
