Welcome to the New VersaLaser®
The world’s most popular desktop laser cutting and
engraving system just got better! The original VersaLaser
was the most successful and technologically-innovative
compact CO2 laser engraving, cutting and marking system
ever brought to market. The new VersaLaser adds several
exciting new features that take the industry’s best-selling
desktop cutting and engraving system to the next level.
For example, VersaLaser now features a next-generation
materials-based print driver that automatically controls
power, speed, pulses per inch and other system settings.
There is also a relocatable origin for custom setups; a job
time estimator; a heat- and scratch-resistant laminated
safety glass window; a work table access door with gas
lift struts; an improved graphical user interface and much
At a cost of about one dollar per day, VersaLaser offers
the lowest cost of ownership in the industry. Motors are
maintenance-free and belts and bearings can be replaced
easily and inexpensively in the field with simple hand tools.
Patented High Power Density Focusing Optics (HPDFO)™
increases the power density of the laser to allow for
direct marking on iron, stainless steel, chrome and
titanium without the need for metal marking compounds.
Universal-manufactured CO2 lasers provide superior
beam quality, reliable long life and the lowest recharge
cost in the industry.
