Due to the highly unique properties of all materials, each one will react differently to laser processing. During the laser cutting and laser engraving process, the flow of compressed air can improve and influence the results quite significantly. Additionally, the Air Assist feature shields the lens by protecting it from any damage that can occur from dust adhering to it, and the JobControl Software will control the Air Assist by automatically switching it on or off. Furthermore, Trotec laser systems that are delivered directly from the factory will have both the Air Assist and pump already integrated within the enclosure. Many Trotec laser systems will come furnished with the Air Assist feature, and all that is additionally required is a connection to an external compressor.
