Platform Overview

The PLS6MW Multi-Wavelength Laser Platform uses multiple laser wavelengths to process the broadest possible spectrum of materials. The PLS6MW is built on Universal's patented Rapid Reconfiguration technology, so changing laser wavelength is as easy as changing the laser source and requires no tools, optics changes or software reconfiguration. This cost-effective, small-footprint, total material processing solution is ideal for fast-paced R&D and production environments and is only available from Universal Laser Systems.

1.06 micron - Fiber
Materials: Most metals, some plastics. When configured with a 1.06 micron pre-aligned interchangeable fiber laser, the PLS6MW can mark most metals and some plastics.

10.6 micron – CO2
Materials: Plastics, textiles, wood and some metals. Reconfigure the PLS6MW with a standard 10.6 micron pre-aligned interchangeable CO2 laser to open up the full breadth of organic material processing capabilities.

9.3 micron – CO2
Materials: Some plastics. Reconfigure the PLS6MW with a specialized 9.3 micron pre-aligned interchangeable CO2 laser for excellent results on certain highly-functional plastics.

Multi-Wavelength
Materials: Some complex materials, including mirrored acrylic, adhesive-backed foils and some plastics. The multi-wavelength functionality of the PLS6MW can be used to accomplish some tasks which are impossible if only a single laser source is used.

System Features

Over-temp Alarm (for fire safety)
An over temperature alarm installed in every Universal laser system monitors the temperature of the work area. If an unusually high temperature is detected the system will turn off the laser and trigger an audible alarm.
Multiple Automatic Focusing Modes
All Universal laser systems can be focused automatically based on material thickness or by using a convenient manual focusing tool. Some Universal laser systems can also be automatically focused using special sensors to detect the top surface of the material being laser processed.
LCD display
PLS/ILS laser systems come equipped with an onboard LCD display, allowing you to move the motion system and Z axis manually during setup or to change job settings on the fly. This function is useful when determining optimal settings for new applications.
Multiple Language Support
Supported languages include English, German, Japanese, Spanish, French, Italian, and more.
Permanently Sealed Bearings
Our sealed, self-lubricating motion system bearings keep dust and debris out, resulting in a longer bearing life.
Proportional Pulse Control
Laser pulses are modulated to maintain consistent energy density at any processing speed.
Stretch-Free Kevlar® Belts
Durable belts provide a long life of reliable processing.
Multi-wave safety glass
Specially designed viewing window ensures safe operation across all wavelengths.
Cabinet lighting
High-efficiency LED lights are installed to provide a better view of the laser processing

Laser Features

Laser Fan Control (to reduce noise)
Universal’s lasers are all air cooled by computer-controlled fans. Fan speed is reduced or increased as a function of laser temperature, reducing noise levels when the lasers are being used on lower power settings.
Smart Laser Source Technology
Because we manufacture our own lasers, Universal’s lasers can communicate their model number to the laser system CPU, allowing the laser system to automatically choose the right settings for a particular material based on available laser power.
Laser Pointer
A red laser pointer is installed for easy material alignment.
Wide Selection of Power Levels
Lasers are available at power levels from 10 to 150 watts.
Air-Cooled Laser Source
Because our laser sources are air-cooled, no complicated liquid cooling systems are required.
Patented Permalign™
Laser sources are pre-aligned at the factory and do not need to be internally realigned.
Patented Cross-Platform Compatibility
Laser sources can be freely interchanged between laser platforms.
Patented Free-Space Gas Slab Laser Design
Our patented laser sources use free-space gas slab resonators to produce an excellent quality beam with even power distribution and good near and far field characteristics.
High Reliability, Excellent Power Stability
Our laser sources provide consistent power for predictably excellent processing results.
Warranty Available Up To 5 Years
Our standard warranty can be extended for up to half a decade of coverage.
Lasers available in 10.6µm, 9.3µm, and 1.06µm wavelengths
Laser sources are available in a variety of wavelengths for maximum laser processing flexibility.
