Manual Air Assist (with Optics Protection)

Air Assist with Optics Protection creates positive air pressure around all optics and directs compressed air or gas onto the surface of the material being processed. This compressed air keeps debris and smoke away from the optics, suppresses combustion of fumes, reduces accumulation of residue on material surface, and increases cut quality on most materials.

Benefits

  • Protects optics
  • Reduces accumulation of residue deposits
  • Improves cutting and engraving performance
Manual Gas Assist
Computer Controlled Gas Assist (with Optics Protection)

Adds computer control of flow to Air Assist with Optics Protection and adds an additional port for gas. The percentage of air or gas flow is computer controlled through a valve system allowing differing settings for each process within a job file.

Benefits

  • Protects optics
  • Reduces accumulation of residue deposits
  • Improves cutting and engraving performance
  • Provides enhanced control over individual processes and improved ease of use
Computer Controlled Gas
Coaxial Gas Assist Attachment

The Coaxial Gas Assist option attaches to the carriage for use in air assisted applications. It directs compressed gas coaxially with the laser beam path and orthogonal to the surface of the material.

Benefits

  • Ideal for wood, plastic, and similar materials
  • Reduces potential for combustion of fumes
Coaxial Gas Assist

1.5" Lens

The 1.5” lens and HPDFO are ideal for very detailed engraving at high resolutions and can be used for cutting of thin films when small cut width and fine detail in the cut pattern are required. HPDFO has the added capability of marking directly on metals.

Benefits

  • Ideal for very detailed engraving at high resolutions
  • Can be used for cutting thin films with fine detail
1.5 Lens
2.0" Lens

The 2.0" lens is a good all-around lens capable of cutting well to thicknesses of up to .5” and capable of marking with reasonable detail and efficiently removing material when surface engraving larger areas.

Benefits

  • Good all-around lens
  • Cuts well up to .5 in (12.7 mm) thickness
2.0 Lens
2.5" Lens

The 2.5” lens provides good engraving detail and is ideal to use when clearance or tolerance is an issue. This lens has a longer focal length and great tolerance, making it excellent for cutting thick materials up to 5/8” (15.875mm) depending on the material. This lens also provides an additional 1/2” (12.7mm) clearance over the standard 2.0”; however, it also reduces the Z axis (table height) by that same 1/2” (12.7mm) amount.

Benefits

  • Ideal for engraving detail when clearance is an issue
  • Excellent for cutting thicker materials
2.5 Lens
4.0" Lens

The 3.0" and 4.0" lenses are best for cutting thicker materials (greater than .5”) and for minimizing taper on cuts in general. They can also be used when clearance issues on some parts being laser processed require more distance between the motion system carriage and the site of laser processing.

Benefits

  • Ideal for cutting thicker materials (greater than .5 in or 12.7mm)
  • Can be used when clearance issues require more distance
4.0 Lens
HPDFO™

This patented technology creates a significantly smaller focal spot and higher laser energy density at a specific focal length. This requires Collimator.

Benefits

  • Direct metal marking on some metals using a 10.6 wavelength
  • Marking of very small or detailed text and graphics

Automation Interface

This interface makes it possible to integrate a ULS laser system into an automated manufacturing environment.

Benefits

  • Allows integration into factory line
Automation Interface
Dual Head

This accessory can simultaneously engrave or cut two copies of an image or pattern, greatly increasing productivity when an image or cutting pattern needs to be repeated many times. Laser power available for each copy of the image or cut is half the total power available from the laser, so a higher powered laser is recommended for thicker materials.

Benefits

  • Produce multiple identical items quickly
  • Increases both engraving and cutting productivity
Dual Head
Collimator

Also known as a beam expander, the Collimator expands and collimates the laser beam, minimizing divergence across the laser processing area producing more consistent focal spot size and energy density. Required for HPDFO.

Benefits

  • Aids in consistency of results from one corner of the laser processing area to the other
  • Maintains a more consistent power density
Collimator

Platform Features


High Reliability Digital Motors

ULS laser systems use high quality digital motors which don’t require expensive and complicated optical encoders to function, increasing reliability.

Intelligent Laser Energy Management Engine

This feature maintains consistent energy density at any processing speed producing uniform marks and constant depth when cutting, marking and engraving.

Laminated Safety Glass

Glass viewing windows create a safe enclosure for laser processing.

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 Automatic Focusing Methods

All ULS laser systems can be focused automatically based on material thickness or by using a convenient manual focusing tool. Some ULS laser systems can also be automatically focused using special sensors to detect the top surface of the material being laser processed.

Multiple Language Support

Supported languages include English, German, Japanese, Spanish French, Italian, and more.

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.

Permanently Sealed Bearings

Our sealed, self-lubricating motion system bearings keep dust and debris out, resulting in a longer bearing life.

Stretch-Free Kevlar® Belts

Durable belts provide a long life of reliable processing.

Laser Features


Air-Cooled Laser Source

Because our laser sources are air-cooled, no complicated liquid cooling systems are required.

High Reliability, Excellent Power Stability

Our laser sources provide consistent power for predictably excellent processing results.

Laser Fan Control (to reduce noise)

All ULS lasers are 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.

Laser Pointer

A red laser pointer is installed for easy material alignment.

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.

Patented Pre-Aligned Laser Sources

Laser sources are pre-aligned at the factory and do not need to be internally realigned.

Smart Laser Source Technology

Because we manufacture our own lasers, ULS 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.

Warranty Available Up To 5 Years

Our standard warranty can be extended for up to half a decade of coverage.

Wide Selection of Power Levels

Lasers are available at power levels from 10 to 150 watts.
