Epilog Laser, the leading designer and manufacturer of CO2 and fiber laser engraving, cutting and marking systems, recently unveiled the Fusion M2 laser. This dual-source laser system also features Epilog’s new eView Camera Module, which is the simplest, most intuitive, and most precise tool for cutting pre-printed/processed graphics on a variety of substrates.
The Fusion M2 is a very exciting addition to Epilog’s current product line. Regardless of material – whether it’s wood, titanium, rubber, fabric, steel or a combination of several substrates – Epilog customers now have a single system that will process all these materials, within the same job.
In addition to high-quality components and unparalleled cutting and engraving results Epilog’s equipment is known for, the Fusion M2 features dedicated optics and a dedicated beam path for each of the laser sources before combining the paths prior to focusing. Some dual-laser systems compromise on optics or force you to switch out the laser source and/or the optics, but with the M2 there is no need to manually swap anything; it all happens automatically.
M2 users also have the option of adding the new eView Camera Module. The addition of the eView Camera Module makes cutting printed graphics incredibly easy and produces exceptionally precise results from anywhere on the table; there’s no need to line up your graphics to the top-left corner of the machine, or even to align it to the x and y-axes. Users simply add registration marks to their graphic and the cameras detect exactly where to cut.
After users have placed their graphics on the table, Epilog’s Job Manager shows a real-time photo representation of the laser table with the printed graphic and its true position on the table. From the Job Manager, operators click the registration marks they want to use, and the eView Camera software does the rest.
What really sets the eView apart is its three-camera design. Other single-view camera systems must be programmed manually to locate registration marks, but the eView system ‘sees’ the registration marks, locates their precise position and feeds your exact project layout back to your computer screen before cutting.
