At GRAND GARAGE, right in the middle of the Tabakfabrik Linz, technology-interested makers have access to more than 90 machines to experiment with pleasure and realize their ideas and projects. Among the most popular machines are the three laser machines from Trotec.
Realization of a wide variety of ideas and prototypes
Speedy 400 Run on Ruby®, Speedy 360 , Rayjet R500
The GRAND GARAGE opened in 2019 in the historic Tabakfabrik in Linz. Since then, the innovation workshop has grown to over 3,000 m2 with more than 90 professional machines and digital technologies. It offers an inspiring environment for a broad community - from pupils and students to researchers, artists, start-ups and companies - to experiment with pleasure and realize ideas and projects.
Without question, the three Trotec lasers - a Speedy 400 Run on Ruby, a Speedy 360 and a Rayjet R500 - are among the most used machines in the modern innovation workshop. Popular applications include personalizing gifts, creating decorative items and signs, and creating 3D reliefs from 2-dimensional wood or plastic sheets. But also start-ups benefit from access to the high-tech lasers and create prototypes of their business ideas at GRAND GARAGE. Thanks to the lasers, new ideas can be realized quickly, easily and cost-effectively.
On the one hand, GRAND GARAGE decided in favor of Trotec's laser devices due to the top functionality and high performance of the machines. These enable a wide range of applications and thus contribute to the attractiveness of the innovation lab. Thanks to the proximity to the Trotec premises, one also knows to be in the best hands in case of any technical problems or questions that might arise.
Since the lasers at GRAND GARAGE are operated by many users, including inexperienced ones, the aspect of safety also played an important role in the selection. Thanks to the closed design of the Trotec laser devices, they provide maximum safet and laser users are optimally protected.
In addition, GRAND GARAGE benefits from the easy operation of the Trotec laser machines and, above all, from the new intuitive and intelligent Trotec Ruby® software, which enables the members to quickly operate the machines on their own.
Ruby® is very popular, the new software is much easier to use, the interface is prettier, and you don't need a second software to start the laser process anymore. We have been using Ruby® for about 6 months now and people are very happy with it!
