Trotec re-defines laser processing with Ruby software
Trotec Laser claims to have redefined laser processing with the launch of its new Ruby laser software, which guarantees profitable laser processing with a connected, web-based platform that is equally well suited to both novice and experienced laser operatives.

Commenting on the company’s latest innovation, Dr. Andreas Penz, Managing Director of Trotec Laser, explained: “Our core ethos since we were originally formed over 20 years ago, has been to make customers more profitable through innovative laser systems. Now, the next stage of this innovation is the provision of a total solution platform that redefines the laser processing workflow.

“Ruby is not just a laser software, it is a platform that guarantees the profitable processing of jobs, thanks to a connected, web-based and digital-to-the-core setup. This technology will offer laser users unmatched added value and will set new standards”.

He continued: “Laser machines will be fully digitalised in the future. The Trotec team has been working intensively on a new software generation for three years and Ruby’s new scalable software architecture has been worked from the ground up, thus creating the basis for future developments.”

Penz went on to outline Trotec’s mission and the importance of digitisation. He said: “For laser users, in particular, the new web-based platform offers possibilities that have long been in demand but which were previously unthinkable, including complete independence from the operating system. In this way, we are setting the next new standard in our industry and our customers will start to benefit from day one.”

Ruby removes the requirement and cost of additional graphics software by combining design and production capabilities into a single software with an integrated workflow. Not only does it feature all of the graphic tools required to create a design, but it also enables direct import of common files, including PDF, PNG and SVG, while incorrect files are automatically cleaned and adjusted during the import process.

Furthermore, Ruby connects all laser devices in a single network either locally or in the cloud, enabling jobs to be distributed to multiple machines from a PC or Mac. Jobs are loaded onto the laser machine’s integrated memory and processed without the need for an additional PC. The innovative workflow means that jobs can be prepared by one user and produced by another at any time from any location, while Ruby’s application programming interface makes the complete automation of business processes possible.

Summarising Ruby’s benefits, Penz said: “This new combination of functionalities serves to literally halve the time between the original conception of the idea to the realisation of the finished item, while the cloud-based material database guarantees the best possible laser results right from the start.”
