Golden, CO--Epilog Laser, producer of carbon dioxide (CO2) and fiber laser based engraving, cutting and marking systems has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 7,570,683 for the company’s Waveguide laser tubes, which have been implemented into its Zing Starter Series and Legend Elite Series of CO2 laser systems.

"The laser tube is the heart and soul of your laser system,” said Mike Dean, director of sales and marketing for Epilog Laser. “Our Waveguide technology allows for higher CO2 gas pressure, optimized plasma generation, faster switching rates and a smaller bore. It’s one of the primary reasons Epilog’s standard system configuration has been recognized world-wide as producing the finest engraving detail in the industry. Without the need for expensive lens options, Epilog customers produce the highest quality engraving at the lowest possible cost.”

"It also allows our systems to produce higher resolution images with a standard lens without adding on expensive lens options. All of this provides our users with the highest quality engraving and cutting results available,” he said.

Laser tube design can produce drastic differences in the way a laser cuts and engraves. Issues such as oval-shaped beams, inconsistent power stability and slow switching rates all contribute to degradation in the quality of the laser beam, and therefore, in the quality of the engraving and cutting results

“We’re exceptionally proud of our Waveguide technology,'' Dean said. ''Not only does it provide Epilog users with the best possible results, but incorporating our own laser tubes has been paramount in fueling our growth as a leader in the laser engraving industry.”
