As an authorized distributor for Universal Laser, ES Technology Limited, Kingston, Bagpuize, Oxfordshire, U.K., is announcing the launch of the new PLS6MW multi-wavelength laser platform™. This latest addition to the range complements the already comprehensive portfolio of ULS laser cutting and engraving systems offered by ES Technology.
The new PLS6MW features a fiber laser for direct metal marking that can be interchanged with a CO2 laser for processing other materials such as wood and plastic – all within the same laser system.
The platform model builds on Universal’s patented Rapid Reconfiguration™ technology, which gives customers the ability to interchange laser sources without the need for realignment or special tools. The PLS6MW has a 813 x 457 mm processing area and supports a 30-watt fiber laser source that can be interchanged with Universal’s CO2 lasers ranging from 10 to 75 watts.
The fiber laser source is ideal for cutting foil and marking a broad range of metals, including stainless steel, titanium, copper, brass, aluminium, and carbide. It can also be used to mark some plastic types including Delrin and ABS.
The CO2 laser source is good for engraving and cutting operations – especially for wood, acrylic, glass, anodized aluminium, fabric and other organic materials. In addition to the 10.6 micron wavelength, Universal’s CO2 lasers are also available with a wavelength of 9.3 microns for PET marking and other applications.
ES Technology Limited supplies the full range of Universal Laser Systems products within the UK and Ireland. The company also provides sub-contract laser cutting, engraving and marking services, after sales service and parts, plus the design and manufacture of laser marking systems.
