All a laser cutter needs: Trotec launches Q Series

Trotec has introduced a new laser cutter which could fast become a favourite for laser users.

Using Trotec’s tried and tested OptiMotion™ control system adapted from the manufacturer’s flagship Speedy range of engravers, the new Q500 cutter delivers a maximum processing speed of 2m/s without compromise on quality, delivering fine engravings up to a font size of 4 pt with sharp shoulders and defined details. Productivity is unrivalled when it comes to achieving high quality at high speed.

The Q500 is available with two different laser source options to ensure optimum results depend-ing on the application. The 60-120W power DC CO2 glass tube model is perfect for cutting appli-cations, while the dual-source model which also features a 60W CeramiCore® RF CO2 source enhances speed and reliability for applications which involve a lot of engraving.

Alongside robust and innovative Austrian engineering, the Q500 cutting system uses Trotec’s JobControl™ software which acts as a print driver and is compatible with a wide range of graphic design programs.

The new Q500 provides improved quality and speed compared to Trotec’s entry-level R500 model which has the same 1300 x 900 mm bed size, while not including all of the features  found in the more advanced SP series of large format laser cutters.

The new laser system is fully supported by Trotec’s UK subsidiary with extended warranty op-tions and training available as well as ongoing support from the company’s large UK-based technical service and support team.

Trotec has six showrooms across the UK and Ireland where the Q500 an be demonstrated and online demonstrations are also available by way of video link.
