Epilog Laser Cutter-Engraver 24 x 18

The laser engraver is extremely versatile, powerful, and easy to use. It is one of the most popular tools at MELD. Our CO2 laser is capable of cutting, engraving, and marking a wide range of materials. The laser appear as printers under Windows (you can even install the drivers on your own laptop and print over our network to the lasers!). Use Corel Draw, Inkscape, or a variety of vector graphics programs to produce artwork. A rotary attachment allows engraving cylindrical objects such as glasses.
