Trotec Makes Splash at ISA with New High-speed Laser Cutter for Large Format Materials

Trotec unveiled the SP2000, its new high-speed laser cutter for large format materials, at the ISA International Sign Expo show held in Las Vegas April 19-22. The new laser system drew much attention among attendees, who gathered to see how the ergonomic design, generous work area, high power, and high-speed processing drives production efficiency.

Scheduled in-booth demonstrations were held throughout the show to showcase two key capabilities for sign makers: acrylic cutting, and cutting pre-printed materials. Trotec technical experts showed how SP2000 creates perfect acrylic edges with no post-processing, and demonstrated how JobControl® Vision registration software used with the SP2000 creates highly precise details perfectly the first time, every time. Attendees were also able to make individual appointments for personalized demos to learn how the SP2000 could handle their individual application needs.

The SP2000 is one of two new members of Trotec’s SP laser cutter series. Like the SP2000, the SP3000 was designed for efficient processing of large-format materials such as acrylics, wood, textiles and cardboard. Both systems offer a generous work area and an ergonomic design including access from all four sides, but the SP3000 offers an even larger working area of 87 x 126 inches, as opposed to the SP2000’s working area of 66-by-98 inches.

In addition to easy access from all four sides, the new SP laser cutters feature a seventy-one-inch-wide loading area at the front and the rear of the machine, allowing for unrestricted unloading and loading even while the machine is cutting. The setup will also drive productivity with processing speeds up to 6.5 feet per second, and laser power up to 400 watts. The fully enclosed beam path and additional safety features classify these laser cutters a class 2 laser solutions, eliminating the need for special safety measures.

“We are thrilled with the response to the SP2000 we’ve gotten at the show,” says Warren Knipple, president of Trotec Laser USA. “When our customers see the generous work area, ergonomic design, and level of power and speed the SP2000 offers, you can see the excitement on their faces as they imagine the production efficiency it could offer their business.”
