New on the market is the G2 Galvo laser series from Epilog Laser, USA. These devices stand for a consistently precise engraving, working at the highest speeds over a large area. This is all possible thanks to a mobile lens with a dynamic focus. From May onward, the G2 Galvo laser series will be distributed in Germany and Austria by cameo Laser Franz Hagemann GmbH.

Consistent dot size of the laser beams
The special thing about the G2 Galvo laser beam is that it features a mobile lens with a dynamic focus. This is a telescopic lens with a third axis that moves in the horizontal axis in order to adjust the focal length all over the entire work table resulting in a consistent dot size of the laser beams. Torsten Herbst, Managing Director of cameo Laser, explains, ”From deep engraving, lettering with rich contrasts with low depth or lettering for events: all this is possible with this device with one push on a button – and this with an incredible speed. This results in a consistent, very precise laser engraving over a working area of 609×609 mm. Traditional galvo systems have only a small engraving field.“
Compatible with all the common software
In the housing of the laser system, either large objects or several smaller products on the table can be placed and processed simultaneously in one single step, without the need of exchanging parts of the laser. “The device has a considerable working area and speed. The G2 Galvo is especially suited for industrial production and is a profitable machine for the producing industry. The laser trace frame around the area that has to be engraved optimises the positioning of the work pieces,” continues the managing director of cameo. Another benefit is that the laser sources of the systems have very low maintenance requirements. And, like all the lasers from Epilog, they can be controlled like a printer. They are compatible with all the common software, such as AutoCad, CorelDRAW, Illustrator and BarTender. “With this, it is very easy to work with one’s own data bases and graphic systems,“ underlines Torsten Herbst.
