Trotec's flagship laser engraving and cutting machine has appeared on Channel 5's Gadget Show to mark the 60th anniversary of laser technology.

The Speedy 400 laser cutter was put through its paces on the popular TV show by host Jon Bentley during a segment which showed the evolution of the laser since it was invented by Theodore Maiman in 1960.

Siân Sweeney, marketing director for Trotec Laser UK said: "When I got the enquiry from the Gadget Show's assistant producer, I was really excited!

It makes sense that a programme dedicated to tech and gadgets would want to feature market-leading products and we were delighted to help out."

The filming for the show took place in August for the show aired on Channel 5 on 27th November 2020. Trotec's Area Manager, Jamie Wakefield, was on site to install the Speedy 400 laser machine and make sure everything went smoothly on the filming day, as well as take some behind-the-scene photographs.

Jamie said: "Jon was really excited about the Speedy 400, as were the rest of the film crew! Jon wanted to check with me that he was using the correct terminology when talking about the laser."

The Speedy 400 is the newest addition to Trotec's Speedy range of laser systems, it features a 1016 x 610 mm working area and delivers a fast 4.3 m/s engraving speedy with 5 g and laser power up to 120 watts. The show aired on Channel 5's Gadget Show on 27th November 2020.
