Trotec Laser Remote App: The first iOS App in the world to control a flatbed laser 


Thanks to the Laser Remote App, laser engraving, cutting and marking machine operators can monitor Trotec flatbed lasers with an iPhone or iPad. 

Sydney, Australia, 3rd April 2013. The first iOS App ever to control a laser plotter is now available on the AppStore. The Laser Remote App provides an overview of current jobs, and the remaining laser engraving and cutting time to the laser operator. Thanks to the virtual working area, positioning of the laser is only a tap away. Status messages on completed or pending jobs are also provided to support efficient workflow. The App provides error notifications to help avoid production down-times and to reduce the chance of reject jobs. The Laser Remote App can be connected to a single machine or even several Speedys. Trotec continue to set new standards of innovation for laser systems with this intuitive operating concept.

Key features of the Laser Remote iOS App:

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

·       Laser operation: Pause running jobs. You can also 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.

The App is available FREE of charge on the AppStore. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad from iOS 6.0. Required: Wi-Fi, Laser software Job Control X and a compatible Trotec laser system. The demo mode allows users to test the app without a Trotec machine.
