Trotec Ruby: Laser Software Re-defined

Trotec Ruby: A simpler and faster way to work with your laser. Digital to the core.

What does every laser user need today and in the future? A laser software platform that supports profitable order processing by making laser workflow seamless. That's why Trotec Ruby, our new software platform, was designed with a simple and fast workflow from idea to product. Ruby provides laser users with a setup that is connected, web-based and digital to the core, with a user interface that delights. Our vision: To re-define working with the laser and offer all laser users unprecedented added value.

The graphic design software for the laser. For a seamless workflow.

With several integrated design and editing tasks, Ruby provides a seamless workflow. You can create graphic, photo and text elements and make adjustments quickly with the integrated workflow. Switch between the "design" and "prepare" steps at any time in one software that is both a graphics and laser program. Ruby laser software allows direct file imports from pdf, svg, and png files. When importing, faulty files are automatically cleaned. These functionalities can cut the time from idea to the finished product in half.  No costs for third-party software packages.

Connected working. Multiple lasers. Multiple users. One web-based platform.

Trotec Ruby connects all your laser machines in a network, locally or in the cloud, enabling users to distribute jobs to multiple machines from a PC or Mac. Jobs will be loaded onto the laser machine's integrated memory and processed without an additional PC. Thanks to the new workflow, jobs can be prepared by one user and produced by another at any time, and from anywhere. Ruby also allows for different roles and rights in user management. Complete automation of business processes is possible with the open programming interface - the Ruby API.

A user interface that delights

The Trotec Ruby laser software accompanies the user from the idea to the finished product. The training effort is minimal. The seamless, self-explanatory workflow starts with the design and continues through preparation and production. An integrated guide provides additional tips if required. The cloud-based material database helps you improve your laser processing results. The user selects the material and material effects such as deep engraving, dark engraving or kiss cut, and Trotec Ruby provides the right material parameters right from the start.
