Features

You simply won’t find more feature-filled laser machines than those in the Legend series. Each feature has been designed with you in mind, and how you can get the most from the laser. You’ll find features that improve connection capabilities, simplify project setup, and much more.

 

Accupoint™ Motion Control System

The motion control provides higher detail engraving, even at the fastest speeds.

 

Accupoint™ High Speed Servo Motors

Known for their incredibly fast acceleration/deceleration and faster turnaround speeds on each engraved line.

 

Accupoint™ Linear Encoders

Synchronizes the firing of the laser at incredibly small increments of .02 mm.

 

Long-Life Lenses Rated to 500 Watts

Lenses that are rated to an incredibly high 500 watts and can last the life of the laser system.

 

Long-Life Steel Bearings

Designed to last the life of the system without the inevitable wobble and replacement of plastic bearings.

 

Kevlar Drive Belts

Precision drive belts are made from the sturdiest, B-Style Kevlar to provide superior accuracy and carriage speeds.

 

Motorized Table

The motorized table can easily be moved up and down to fit a wide variety of engraving materials and products.

 

Integrated Cutting Table

Included with each Legend System, the Vector Cutting Table provides better cutting quality.

 

Integrated Vacuum Table

Hold down thin, warped materials with the Vacuum Hold-Down Table by drawing air down through the table.

 

Radiance™ Higher Resolution Optics

No additional, expensive lens package needed for the highest resolution engraving (Mini 24/Helix).

 

CO2 Waveguide Laser Tubes by Epilog

The all-metal tube design provides higher beam quality and longer life with low recharge costs.

 

Memory in the Machine

Improve job processing times and workflow with integrated on board 64MB of RAM in the legend laser machines.

 

Super-Silent™ Cooling Fans

With computer controlled variable-speed cooling fans, the Legend series is the quietest-operating laser machine in its class.

 

Easy Cleanup with the Removable Crumb Tray

Software

Laser Dashboard and Job Manager

The Laser Dashboard™ controls your laser’s settings from a wide range of software packages – from design programs to spreadsheet applications to CAD drawing packages. As the interface to the laser, the Laser Dashboard makes the features you use most often accessible at the touch of a button.

The Job Manager is a powerful tool that will allow you to access any job you have sent to the laser, view the settings you used on any past job, re-run projects, access your material database, and much more.

Epilog laser systems work through a print driver, so you can design your files in many different graphic software packages including Illustrator, Photoshop, AutoCAD, and much more. However AET Labs recommends and supports CorelDraw, which is the most commonly used software
