Profitability by Design with Trotec’s new Speedy 400

Trotec has once again set a new standard in laser processing with the introduction of the new Speedy 400 laser cutter.

Designed to maximise productivity, this next generation laser cutter features a range of innovations including optimised performance for quality and speed, easy material loading, maximum operator comfort and the most efficient processing, which have the effect of making it the fastest and most productive laser engraver available in its class.

Customer productivity is Trotec’s aim when designing new products and to improve production efficiency, the maximum engraving speed of the Speedy 400 has been increased from 3.55 m/sec to 4.3 m/sec at an acceleration of 5g, which when combined with the new motion planning system OptiMotion, makes the new Speedy 400 the fastest mid-size laser engraver on the market, capable of cutting up to eight times as fast as comparable laser cutters.

The new OptiMotion feature calculates cutting speed and acceleration based on the geometries of the graphic in real time, allowing users to easily plan their production time per job. Whilst this is a standard feature on larger cutting systems, its inclusion in the new Speedy 400 is an innovation for medium-sized engraving systems.

Even when processing at the maximum working speed, the Speedy 400 easily achieves perfect results thanks to highly intelligent control electronics, precise mechanics, reliable laser sources, and the intuitive Trotec JobControl software.

To reduce pre-production time, Trotec’s patented Sonar Technology is also a standard feature. The system automatically detects the focus point at each position of the worktable and automatically moves to the correct focus position. The ergonomically redesigned machine also offers maximum comfort for operators, with the new front lid handling design making loading materials an easy task.

The progress of individual jobs can now be easily seen at a glance thanks to a new dynamic status display. Previously, job times have only been visible in the laser software, but this new feature provides users with the opportunity to see at a glance whether the laser is operating, a job is completed or stopped, and which laser source is activated, as well as multiple other statuses.

A standard for all Speedy lasers, the new Speedy 400 is available with a CO2 laser source or with Trotec’s patented flexx technology, featuring both a CO2 and fiber laser in one machine. Combining both laser sources into a single machine enables multiple materials to be processed in a single job with no requirement for changing the lens, laser source or focus.

The Speedy 400 is available with a variety of options to suit individual business requirements, such as the multi-functional table concept, different lenses and the JobControl Vision camera system, designed for accurate processing of pre-printed materials. This makes it possible to adapt the laser at any time to suit the changing business needs.

The new Speedy 400 is now available from Trotec UK.
