Trotec has launched the Laser Remote App, the first iOS App to control a flatbed laser. The app allows operators to monitor the flatbed laser with either an iPhone or an iPad.
The Laser Remote App facilitates the overview of current jobs and the remaining laser engraving and cutting time for the operator. Status messages on completed or pending jobs support an efficient workflow while notifications about possible errors help to avoid production down-times and to reduce the reject rate.
The App can be connected to a single machine or even several Speedys. With this intuitive operating concept, the Upper Austrian innovation leader Trotec is setting new standards for laser systems.
Key features of the 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 you to test the app without a machine.
