The laser beam melts the material while cutting and this results in clean, perfectly sealed edges with no fraying. Another advantage: thanks to the contactless and tool-free process, even elastic material can be cut distortion-free and reliably.
Unlike many other machines on the market, the SP series does not carry the laser source on the working head or on the axis. This would limit the movement system in its cutting speed as well as the laser power significantly. The Trotec R&D team focused on maximizing the performance: The laser source is installed stationary in the body of the machine, the laser beam is carried to the material via mirrors over the entire working area. Since the laser source is fixed, there are no restrictions on the installed laser power. This is a crucial productivity advantage: For typical soft signage applications, we propose a laser power of 200 watts to achieve maximum productivity.
