Trotec Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary of Dual-Source Laser TechnologyThe pioneers of the first dual-source laser system celebrate 10 years of innovation and technical advancement
Trotec Laser, a leading provider of advanced laser equipment, is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their flexx series, the first dual-source laser system. The innovative dual-source technology combines a fiber laser and a CO2 laser in one system, which enables businesses to produce more products in less time while reducing maintenance costs. Trotec was the first company to develop this technology, and it has been testing, refining and improving it for the past decade.
Why two laser sources are better than oneTrotec's patented flexx system maximizes output and reduces overhead, providing a rapid return on the investment. The system combines a CO2 laser for cutting and engraving a wide variety of materials (including plastic, wood, rubber and glass) with a fiber laser for marking plastics and metals, eliminating the need to use and maintain separate systems to process jobs that require both laser types. Using a single system is more efficient because it eliminates the need to stop and start jobs, and with one system and one beam source, maintenance costs and processing times are cut in half.
Maximum flexibilityTrotec flexx systems are available in more than 30 configurations and different power levels (up to 120 watts for CO2 lasers and up to 50 watts for fiber lasers). Customers can add flexx to Speedy systems at any time. The systems come with user-friendly, patented Job Control workflow software that integrates easily with existing systems.
"We have spent the past ten years testing and improving our dual-source laser systems," says Warren Knipple, president of Trotec Laser, Inc. "Our experience allows us understand and accommodate our customers' diverse needs and provide a highly refined product with superior performance."
