Rayjet Laser, a division of Trotec Laser, Inc., will unveil the r500 laser-cutting system at the NBM Long Beach show this week. With a generous and ergonomic working area, sophisticated and intuitive workflow software, and the industry’s highest safety standards, the r500 provides the industry with a safe, user-friendly, cost-effective, and locally supported solution for cutting wide-format materials.
Designed to comply with stringent production standards and European manufacturing and design principles, the r500 is also the only laser safety class 2 system in its price range—meaning that it meets U.S. manufacturing safety requirements for use in public spaces, and does not require operators to wear protective gear such as safety goggles. The new laser cutter, which is also CE certified, includes safety features such as a double interlock system and a safety kill-switch.
The system features an open, ergonomic design with a generous 51” x 35” (1300mm x 900mm) bed size that fits most standard material sheet sizes, and up to 100 Watts DC of laser power, allowing you to easily and efficiently cut and engrave a wide range of materials such as plastics, paper, textiles, acrylics, wood and many more materials with thickness up to 1/2” in. (15mm). The included Rayjet Manager workflow software provides easy, step-by-step instructions with logical and intuitive functions, allowing you to make a fast transition from job layout to final product.
“We are thrilled to offer this safer, high-quality alternative to businesses who need an efficient and economical laser cutting machine,” says Warren Knipple, President at Trotec Laser. “It’s simple to use, yet you can produce highly sophisticated and precise designs. It’s cost-effective but still meets the most stringent standards for safety, design and manufacturing.”
