Features

Our general purpose laser cutting machines are designed with user convenience and flexibility in mind. Hardware and software are integrated in a complete, ready-to-use package with many features that enhance usability and profitability.

The Most Profitable, Multi-Purpose Working Areas

The 51” (1300mm) working width of the X-1309 and the K-1309 comfortably accommodates standard 48” (1200mm) wide sheet material, while the 63” (1600mm) working width of the BF-1610 is ideal for 60” (1500mm) material.

The working table of the X-1309 features powered up and down movement, to accommodate abnormally shaped work pieces or an optional rotary unit for use with pipe and rod stock.

Full Pass-Through Capability

Openable front door and back panel give the laser machines full pass-through capability, allowing you to work with uncut sheets, process long work pieces, or use continuous roll material.

Choice of Support Tables*

We provide both an aluminum strip table for hard and flammable materials (acrylic, cardboard, wood, etc), and a full-support honeycomb table suitable for soft material processing (paper and textiles). Both minimize laser reflection and ensure a clean cut edge.

Rotary Unit*
Thanks to its height adjustable working table, the X-1309 can be equipped with an optional rotary unit for cutting and engraving pipe or rod around its circumference.
Deep Collecting Bay and Pick-Up Drawer

After cutting, parts small enough to fit through the honeycomb or strip table will drop down to a deep collecting bay, avoiding damage by the laser during subsequent cutting operations. They can be retrieved simply by opening the drawer after cutting is complete.

Multiple Laser Cutting/Engraving Heads*

The laser machines can be equipped with single or dual laser cutting/engraving heads. Dual heads allow two copies of the same pattern to be cut simultaneously on a single sheet of material. The spacing between the heads can be adjusted at any time (based on the repeat width of the pattern) using just a screwdriver.

Choice of Focusing Lens*

We offer two focal lengths of lens for use in our standard laser heads. The 2.5” (63.5mm) lens is ideal for general purpose laser cutting and engraving, while the 4” (101.6mm) lens is best for cutting material over 20mm thick. The standard laser head has two lens mounting positions, so the spacing from the bottom of the nozzle to the material is the same with both lenses.

Air Assist Mechanism
The laser head includes an adjustable air assist assembly. A constant stream of compressed air protects the lens from dust or cutting vapor, and sweeps the cutting surface, reducing the possibility of flaming, scorching, or charring when cutting materials such as acrylic or wood.
Front Panel Display and Controls

The laser machines are equipped with a high performance control system with a user-friendly interactive panel.

The high-resolution, true color TFT LCD panel lets you preview machine status and job details before processing. You can adjust parameters for different materials, or even run a processing simulation on the panel.

While processing, you will see real-time status information on the panel, and you can adjust parameters on the fly according to the results you are seeing.

Reliable Off-line Operation and Hot Restart

If there is a power failure or the emergency stop is hit, all configuration and job status information is automatically saved. After the problem is cleared, cutting or engraving can resume exactly where it left off, preventing material wastage.

Embedded flash storage in the controller lets you transfer jobs to the machine by USB, Ethernet or flash drive and finish processing offline without relying on a connection to your PC.

Design and Machine Control Software

We supply your machine with EagleWorks, a complete software solution for creating, editing, optimizing, and processing patterns for laser cutting and engraving. You can import a design from your favorite CAD or illustration program, or create an original design with the EagleWorks software. Then you can adjust the cutting/engraving order, specify the layout within the processing area of the machine, run a processing simulation, and finally control the machine directly from inside the software running on your PC.

Print Driver

As an alternative to using the EagleWorks software, you can run the machine directly from within your favorite CAD or illustration program using our print driver. This software makes the laser machine look to your computer as if it were just another printer, to which you can “print” from any application, including AutoCAD, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, CorelDRAW, etc.

When controlling the machine through the print driver, you use color and line thickness settings in the drawing to control the laser power (cutting vs. engraving) and the order of cutting. This allows you to easily combine cutting and engraving in a single job, for faster processing and more precise control of the laser.

Half-toned photographs and other images can be laser-engraved by “printing” directly from inside your favorite image editing software. When using software that supports both raster images and vector drawing (e.g. Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, etc) a simple one-step Print command can do both cutting and engraving simultaneously.

LightBurn is layout, editing, and control software for your laser cutter. With LightBurn you can:

  • Import artwork in a variety of common vector graphic and image formats (including AI, PDF, SVG, DXF, PLT, PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP)
  • Arrange, edit, and even create new vector shapes within the editor, with powerful features like offsetting, boolean operations, welding, and node editing
  • Apply settings like power, speed, number of passes, cut order, brightness & contrast, dithering mode, and much more
  • Send the result directly to your laser cutter

LightBurn is a native application written for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux, and talks directly to the laser, without the use of additional software.

A Complete Set of Accessories

We provide a complete, ready-to-use package with all the necessary parts to get your machine up and running.

A high quality industrial water chiller circulates cooling water through the laser tube, ensuring continuous and stable laser output power.

A powerful exhaust blower maintains negative pressure within the entire machine enclosure, ensuring efficient extraction of dust and fumes from both above and below the work piece.

We supply all the ductwork needed to vent the machine to the outside.

Just connect it all together and you are ready to run your first job!

Technical Advantages

Our general purpose laser cutting machines include many high-end design elements that give our machines superior speed, accuracy, reliability and service life.

High Performance Motors*

With servo motors from world’s leading supplier, the laser head of the X-1309 and the BF-1610 can move very fast at extremely high resolution. A step size of just 6.25μm gives the machine a resolution of over 4000DPI. In arbitrary-direction cutting, the head can accelerate at 2 m/s2 (0.2G), while for X-axis scanning during engraving, acceleration up to 20 m/s2 (2G) is possible. (The more economical models with high quality stepper motors sacrifice only a small amount of performance.)

Robust, High-precision Slides

The linear bearings and slide rails used in the laser machines are thicker and stronger than in competitive models, ensuring long-term stability of the laser path. That means less downtime, more productivity, and more profit.

Superior Laser Sources*

The laser machines can be equipped with single or dual 100W, 130W, or 150W glass CO2 laser tubes, all with great cost performance ratios. (Dual laser systems include two cutting heads, allowing you to cut or engrave twice as much material in the same amount of time.)

If engraving is a large part of your work load, you can increase productivity and engraving consistency with our 50W or 100W RF metal tube laser. It will allow you to get more done in less time with unmatched engraving quality.

High Quality Optics

The laser machines are equipped with top-quality, American-made optics, to provide a consistent laser beam across the entire working area. This allows the laser machines to achieve industry-leading cutting and engraving quality.

Superior Mirrors and Mirror Mounts
The laser beam is carried from the laser tube to the laser head by a series of mirrors, whose alignment is crucial for good performance. Our mirror mounting and adjusting system is the best in the world, designed for stability and ease of use. In most cases the machine will not require any alignment after installation, but if it goes out of calibration for any reason, three adjustment screws per mirror allow you to achieve perfect alignment with minimal frustration.
Safety and Reliability

The laser machines are designed, engineered, and built with safety and reliability in mind.

We use electronic parts from the world’s leading suppliers and build the system to international standards. Sensors throughout the machine detect unsafe conditions, including door open, laser tube box open, laser cooling water pressure or flow failure, and so on. The machine will stop automatically if any unsafe condition is detected. There is also a panic button on the front panel which will immediately and completely shut down all power to the machine.

Note: All technical advantages marked with * depend on configurations of the laser machine.
