Raster Performance Comparison Test
Raster performance, also known as raster mode, is mainly used for engraving and photo imaging. In this test, a single graphic element was used to compare raster performance. Settings were selected on each laser system to minimize production time while achieving comparable, acceptable output quality. Read more …
Vector Performance Comparison Test
Vector performance, also known as vector mode, is mainly used for cutting and single line engraving and marking. In this test, 12 graphic elements were developed to test different aspects of vector performance when laser material processing. Settings were adjusted on each laser system in the comparison to maximize performance while achieving comparable and acceptable quality for the PLS6.150D (ULS) and two competitor systems, System E and System T.

Uniquely Universal Features
Universal Laser Systems is an innovator in the field of laser engraving, laser cutting and laser marking equipment. The laser material processing systems ULS manufacture are the product of decades of experience and a commitment to research and development. ULS laser systems deliver everything you have come to expect from a high quality product—including excellent precision, performance and reliability—but they also offer several exclusive features unique to Universal. These patented, proven laser processing innovations were designed to make laser processing more effective, productive and profitable. And you can only get them from Universal Laser Systems.
ULR Laser Sources
Universal’s patented air-cooled free-space gas slab lasers produce an excellent quality beam with even power distribution and good near and far-field characteristics, making them ideal for laser material processing.
High Power Density Focusing Optics™
High Power Density Focusing Optics (HPDFO) allow the laser beam to be focused to a much smaller spot, making it possible to engrave smaller text and produce sharper images at tighter tolerances.
This materials-based driver automatically determines the optimum processing settings for your target material. Just select the material type, enter the material thickness, and start the laser system.
1-Touch Laser Photo™
1-Touch Laser Photo is a proprietary software package that makes it quick and easy to produce photographic images on nearly any material. Download 30-day Free Trial
Rapid Reconfiguration™ of Lasers
Dual Laser Configuration
The Dual Laser Configuration optically combines two ULS laser sources into a single beam for additional power and flexibility.
This new Multi-wavelength platform is engineered to support our new laser sources which produce 1.06 micron fiber wavelength light and 9.3 micron CO2 wavelength light as well as our traditional CO2 lasers producing 10.6 micron wavelength light.
True Class 4 Material Pass-Through Mode
When used in conjunction with an approved work environment, our versatile ILS platform is designed to accommodate laser processing of continuous materials, such as long sheet goods or rolled materials.
Universal's Camera Registration (UCR)
Universal’s Camera Registration is a combination of a camera mounted inside the laser system that locates and determines the exact positions of registration marks on printed materials and software that adjusts a predefined cut path to fit the material.
Advantages of Metal Core CO2 Lasers
The Materials Library is the world’s premier source for information on laser material processing. It provides information on the types of materials that can be laser processed and the processes (laser cutting, engraving and marking) that are possible with a given material.
Additionally, the Materials Library highlights considerations for your laser system configuration necessary to process a given material as well as how ULS technology innovations can be leveraged to obtain the best possible results.
This library is an evolving resource with updates made on a regular basis.
