  • Net Weight: 297.6 lb (135 kg)
  • Tackle larger-scale projects with ease
  • The short base allows compact portability in tight workshops and through smaller door frames.

Specs:

  • Maximum engraving speed: 500mm/s
  • Maximum cutting speed: 80mm/s (actual speeds depend on material)
  • 18mm Focal lens diameter
  • 1.5" Focal length
  • 25mm Mirror diameter
  • Resolution up to 2540 dpi
  • 10” Standard Z-depth (Workspace height with honeycomb bed installed and laser head half retracted)
  • 11” Max Z-depth (Workspace height with honeycomb bed removed, knife bed in use, and laser head fully retracted upwards)

Compatibility:

  • The Ruida control board works seamlessly with RDWorks for Windows PC (included) and LightBurn (not included)
  • RDWorks (included) and LightBurn (not included) are compatible with Windows 7, 8, 10 (64/32 bit), XP, 2000, and Vista.
  • The Ruida controller is compatible with macOS (Version 10.11 and higher) ONLY if you use LightBurn software (not included)
  • Photo-ready to convert images from HPLG, BMP, GIF, JPG, JPEG, DXF, DST, AI formats, and more into .RD files for laser processing. 
  • 4-Pin Port connection for rotary axis devices.

Power:

  • The integrated power supply features increased response speed, performance, and cutting power — it’s beaming with possibilities!
  •  A secondary LCD display panel monitors the electric current and auto-judges fault, reducing potential damage to the laser tube and power supply. 
  • Cut up to 9 mm (.35″) thick acrylic/plexiglass
  • Uses standard 110V AC power connection

Laser Tube Lifetime:

  • 80W CO2 laser tube with an estimated lifetime of up to 8,000 operation hours depending on power setting usage and water cooling performance
  • PLEASE NOTE: Frequent use of high laser power settings will shorten the laser tube lifetime as follows:
  • Low Power 10–40% = 7,000–8,000 Hours
  • Moderate Power 40–70% = 5,000–6,500 Hours
  • High Power 70–100% = 3,000–4,000 Hours

Cutting Edge Features:

  • COMPACT EFFICIENCY: We replaced this 80W cabinet engraver's traditional base with space-saving caster wheels so you can easily move and secure the machine wherever needed for work, storage, or transport.
  • KT332N RUIDA DIGITAL CONTROLLER: The intuitive control panel with a digital display allows complete control of the laser head, pausing and stopping projects, adjusting laser power and speed settings, file viewing, and project framing via Windows-compatible RDWorks v8.
  • USB & ETHERNET PORTS: 2 USB ports allow flash drive connectivity and a USB-to-USB PC connection. Plus, the ethernet connection is compatible with PCs.
  • LINEAR RAIL GUIDING SYSTEM: Equipped with X and Y stepper motors for efficient power transmission between the guide rails with high precision and long service life. 
  • VIEWING WINDOW: A transparent acrylic glass viewing window allows observation throughout the laser engraving process. Plus, it’s equipped with a sepia tint to protect your eyes from indirect laser beam exposure.
  • RED DOT GUIDANCE: A red dot pointer mounted on the laser head quickly indicates engraving points, marks the machine’s path, and identifies positioning sizes, allowing an effortless project setup process.
  • ADJUSTABLE LASER NOZZLE: The laser nozzle can extend downwards up to 1.75” or be fully retracted, allowing more control over different focal distance setups.
  • AIR ASSIST: A pre-installed air compressor guides a pressurized air stream through the laser head nozzle to displace debris, heat, and combustible gases from the engraving surface and laser beam path, keeping your workbed cleaner and engravings more precise.
  • FOUR-WAY PASS-THROUGH: There’s always extra room! Equipped with front, rear, and side-to-side pass-through doors to accommodate materials larger than the table size.
  • BUILT-IN VENTILATION: A pre-installed vent fan expels smoke and fumes to create a safer workspace and extend the service life of your machine.
  • WATER COOLING SYSTEM: Pre-installed hoses along with the included water pump allow for a fast and easy setup. Only use with distilled water, ensuring it stays between 60–70°F (16–21°C).
  • WATER FLOW SENSOR: A pressure flow sensor monitors water flow throughout the laser engraving process and prevents the laser from firing if water stops circulating through the laser tube. 
  • AUTOMATIC SHUTDOWN: The auto-shutdown safety feature stops the machine when opening the transparent window cover. Once closed, press the “Enter” button to continue operation.
  • EFFORTLESS CLEANUP: A debris collection system below the workbed funnels engraving debris into a removable collection tray, helping maintain your machine’s cleanliness and easing the cleanup process.
