Trotec Laser Remote app monitors flatbed laser


Trotec Laser Inc. says it has released the first iOS app used to control a flatbed laser. The new Trotec Laser Remote app allows customers to monitor their Trotec Laser from the palm of their hand.

 

The Trotec Laser Remote App allows the operator to see current jobs and the remaining laser engraving and cutting times. With the virtual working area feature, positioning the laser head can be done with just a tap.

You can receive status messages on completed or pending jobs to improve workflow and notifications about job and laser status help to avoid production down-time. The App can be connected to a single machine or several lasers at once.


The app offers several features.

• Remote control of the connected laser: Indication whether the laser plotter is running or waiting for new job.

• Laser operation: Pause running jobs and switch “on” or “off” the Trotec Atmos exhaust system.

• Laser positioning: Move the laser head using the virtual keypad or guide the laser head by touching the virtual working area.

• Calculation of engraving and cutting time: Get information about the total and remaining processing time of your laser job.

Ypsilanti, Mich.,-based Trotec Laser Inc. is an international provider of advanced laser equipment for a range of applications, including laser cutting, engraving and industrial marking.
