Laser Cutter

We offer laser cutters from entry-level models to high-end machines for professionals, from small to large format laser cutting machines with 2 x 3 m. Acrylic, wood, paper and plastic are just a few of the materials a laser machine can cut precisely and engrave in detail. Find the right laser cutting machine for your application.

Advantages of a laser cutter

A laser cutter can cut and engrave many materials. Laser cutting is a fast, efficient, non-contact cutting process.


Versatility of material processing

Cut materials like acrylic, paper, wood, MDF sheets, textile and plastic contactlessly – anything from 1 mm paper to 25 mm acrylic is possible. Our laser cutters offer a working area of up to 2 x 3 m.

Use the same machine to cut and engrave

A laser cutter can engrave or mark logos, texts and patterns into the material, as well as cut materials. There’s no need for an additional machine. This saves time and money, while creating added value and flexibility.

Precise cutting of complex geometries and materials

The laser beam achieves minimal kerf and enables the smallest radii of 1/10 mm. This allows the finest geometries, complex shapes and designs to be accurately cut, while the material is utilized efficiently since minimal waste is created. A laser cutter is ideal for the cost-effective production of displays, signs, architectural models, prototypes and artwork.

No post-processing of the material

The laser beam is a thermal process that vaporizes, burns or melts the material during the cut. For example, when laser cutting acrylic, you obtain a crisp cut edge by melting the acrylic. Wood is burned with pinpoint accuracy. Laser cutting seals the edges of synthetic textiles. This saves time and money in production and produces high-quality results.

The high quality and reliability of our laser cutters ensure efficient and productive production that meets the demands of modern industry.

Laser machines in manufacturing

Realize unique customer wishes and individual products

Implement original ideas quickly and easily without any time-consuming cutting by hand. With a laser machine you can cut anything from wooden decorative items to paper cards and leather products. Additionally, the laser cutters enable you to individualize products with a name or photo engraving. Cut and engrave single pieces, small series and even large series at low cost. Personalization with a laser machine can increase the selling price by 5 to 10 times compared to a standard product. 

Laser cutter for personalization

Precise cuts in the textile industry; unique creations in the fashion industry

A laser cutting machine offers a precise and efficient way to cut materials such as linen, cotton, silk, leather and faux leather. The heat of the laser beam seals the edges of synthetic fabrics like polyester or fleece. This prevents fraying and eliminates the need for post-processing.

Laser cutting enables the creation of complex patterns and designs. These designs become reproducible through the use of laser technology, which is often not the case with manual work. In addition, using a laser cutter in the fashion industry enables garments and accessories to be personalized. For example, leather jackets, shoes and bags can be customized with logos, names or other motifs.

    What do you need to consider before choosing a laser cutter that’s perfect for your application?

    A comparison of the different laser sources

    Laser cutters differ primarily in the laser sources they use. Each laser type has its own advantages and disadvantages and is suitable for processing different materials. Trotec laser cutters use a CO2 laser source for cutting. This is a laser source that is mainly suitable for processing non-metallic materials as well as most plastics.

    Other laser types: Fiber lasers are best suited to metal marking by tarnishing, as well as to metal engraving and high-contrast plastic marking. Nd:YAG and Nd:YVO (crystal lasers) are also suitable for marking metals and plastics. Unlike fiber lasers, YAG or vanadate lasers use relatively expensive pump diodes as wear material.

    High power facilitates enormous flexibility

    It’s always the individual application that dictates which laser power is recommended. But as a rule of thumb, more power enables faster cutting, provided the material (thickness) allows this. For laser cutting and high-speed applications, we generally recommend a laser power of more than 80 watts. 

    The maximum laser power affects both the quality of your products and the working time. While you can regulate the laser power via the software, the maximum power output depends on the hardware. Thin polyester fabric, for example, can be cut economically with a less powerful laser cutter (e.g. 60 watts), but you’ll need a more powerful machine (e.g. 400 watts) for 25 mm thick acrylic. Therefore, the following applies: A high-powered laser machine offers great flexibility since you can use it to process many different materials.  

    What material thickness can be laser cut?

    A laser cutter can be used to cut a wide range of materials. There are four factors that determine the maximum cutting thickness: first, laser power; second, throughput; third, quality requirements and fourth, material type. Material thickness and recommended laser power for CO2 laser cutting:

    Materials Recommended laser power (watts)
      30 watts 60 watts 120 watts 200 watts 400 watts
    Plywood 3 mm 8 mm 12 mm 12 mm 12 mm
