Creative financing

At Trotec, we know that fundraising isn't easy, and that most individuals who are passionate about building a business aren't independently wealthy. When traditional measures for raising money aren't possible, many are turning to social media sites as a means to raise dollars. This thinking paved the way for platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and gofundme -- websites that host a variety of pre-approved creative projects for the world to check out and donate money to when they are inspired by creativity and ambition. Learn more about how to use social media to fund your laser.

We recognize that we serve a diverse customer base, and one size does NOT fit all when it comes to financing options. To help meet a wider range of lending needs, we are working with a new lender to offer new purchasing options to place our lasers closer within your reach. Contact Ascentium Capital to learn more about your options.

Trying to determine which laser type is best for you?

We offer resources to help you choose the best laser for your business. When you are in the initial process of gathering information to determine what equipment you'll need for your business, it is helpful to investigate the different types of lasers and the capabilities they offer. Flatbed laser machines are available with fiber laser sources for marking metals and plastics, and with CO2 laser sources, which can process a wide range of materials, making them a good choice if you want to process a wide range of applications. A galvo laser is generally used for more specialized applications and can be customized for integration with production processes. Download our Fiber v. CO2 guide and Flatbed v. Galvo guide to learn more.
