Mid-Range Laser Cutter
Q Series


Why you need a mid-range laser cutter from our Q series.

The Q laser cutter stands for efficient cutting and the best price-performance ratio. With a work area of 1300 x 900 mm and laser power of up to 120 watts, the laser machine cuts and engraves a variety of materials: Acrylic and wood (cut up to 15 mm), textiles, paper and cardboard, signs, craft items, models or decorative items. The Q series has everything a laser cutter needs and offers reliable laser machines for production.

Because you’re more efficient with a laser cutter.

How is the productivity promise fulfilled? By using Trotec core technology: The drive concept and OptiMotionTM provide the speed, the red Trotec laser head enables fast yet precise laser processing. The ultra-compact, lightweight design integrates the most important functions in the smallest of spaces. The InPack TechnologyTM: protects all sensitive components of the mid-range laser cutter from dust.

Because you can work reliably and for a long time with the laser cutter.

The Q500 Laser Cutter is equipped with a powerful DC CO2laser for fast laser cutting, a CeramiCore® RF CO2 laser for high-quality laser engraving or both. The innovative and patented CeramiCore® laser source concept stands for reliability, durability and high engraving quality. The resonator of the laser source, where the laser beam is generated, is 100% ceramic. One investment – two tools.

Because you can work intuitively with the mid-range laser cutter.

Ruby®, the design software for the laser machine, ensures a smooth workflow. Create graphic, photo and text elements and make adjustments quickly thanks to the integrated workflow. With software that is also a graphics and laser program. And a user interface that inspires. Ruby® connects all your laser machines in one network, locally or on the go.

Because individual requirements

Multiple users.

Work together as a team with different roles and permissions. For example, operators cannot adjust laser parameters, they can only assign them. Students cannot start laser jobs without a teacher. Graphics pre-press and laser production work together seamlessly. Multiple users - 1 laser machine.

Engrave twice as fast.

Engrave twice as fast as inexpensive entry-level laser machines. A sign that takes 10 minutes on an entry-level laser machine can be engraved in less than 5 minutes with the Q series. 2m per second and 2G maximum engraving speed make this possible.

Focus easily and quickly at the touch of a button using the SonarTechnology™ ultrasonic sensor.

Minimal cleaning.
Sensitive components (lenses, linear guides) are protected from dust and dirt by our InPack Technology™ with integrated air flushing.


Efficient exhaust system.
Less contamination of the workpieces, less flame formation and a long service life of the laser machine with the right exhaust system – Trotec Atmos.

Sophisticated technology
Reliable operation, longest service life and lowest maintenance costs thanks to reliable Austrian mechanical engineering.

Always productive.
TroCare is a customized service package for maximum productivity reliability and calculable operating costs.

Producing Print and Cut jobs.
Precise cutting of printed applications thanks to Trotec Vision.

Rotary engraving.
Engrave glasses, bottles, cups and much more thanks to the rotary engraving attachment.


A coordinated solution.
Optimal interaction of service, laser machine, exhaust system and material – 1 contact person for everything.

Safe according to CE.
Our machines meet all official requirements and can therefore be put into operation safely.

Makes the laser beam “visible”.
It indicates by a red dot where exactly the beam of the laser machine will hit the material.


The right lens for perfect results.
Optimal results during laser engraving or laser cutting are achieved by using different lenses.


Air assist ensures optimal results.
During laser engraving and laser cutting, the supply of compressed air can significantly influence and improve the results.


The right processing table.
High-quality products and fewer defective products with the right table for every application.
