ULR Laser Sources

ULS Tube

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™

HPDFO image

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.

Laser Interface+™

Laser System Interface

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™

Camera Alignment

1-Touch Laser Photo is a proprietary software package that makes it quick and easy to produce photographic images on nearly any material.

Rapid Reconfiguration™ of Lasers

Laser platforms with Rapid Reconfiguration can be reconfigured with new laser sources in seconds, without tools. This allows you to configure your laser system to suit the task at hand, increasing quality and throughput.

Dual Laser Configuration

Dual Laser Configuration

The Dual Laser Configuration optically combines two ULS laser sources into a single beam for additional power and flexibility.


SuperSpeed is suitable for raster image applications and requires Dual Laser Configuration. This component allows two lines of a raster image to be produced simultaneously. For vector cutting, the laser beams can be combined to take advantage of higher power.

Multi-Wavelength Technology


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

ULS Pass Through

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)

Camera Registration

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

Metal Core Laser
There are several types of materials used to construct laser sources. The main body of a laser, containing the critical laser gas mixture, is referred to as a core. They can be made of metal, ceramic or glass.
