Cobalt 300 - High Speed Platemaking, Cutting & Engraving Laser

The Cobalt 300 is an advanced plate-making, cutting and engraving laser system, equipped with the highest-speed servo-driven motor and the most user-friendly software on the market. The Cobalt 300 is a CO2 laser machine geared for making high resolution Pad Printing Plates directly from the computer, without the use of film positives, chemicals or concern about depth control. In addition, this laser etcher comes with the industry's best warranty.

The servo drive amplifier enables smoother motions at higher speeds than stepping dive motors, which makes the Cobalt 300 the fastest engraving laser system in its class. The maximum etching speed is 110 inches per second. This CO2 laser machine also has the unsurpassed software package for quick positioning, modifying and printing multiple graphics to the laser. The XY motion of the laser print head enables etching of very large images, (up to 12" x 24") making the Cobalt 300 a highly flexible machine for engraving Acculaze and Imperial pad printing plates, engraving promotional products, laser marking products and cutting fixtures.

Benefits of Plate-Making with Engraving Laser

Process Improvements
  • Improved print quality: laser plates are 1st generation so there is no loss of resolution due to film
  • Etched Imperial laser plates are 100% repeatable
  • Improved ink lay down - laser engraved plates have a straight walled etching and more precise inkwell profile than polymer plates
Direct Cost Savings
  • Eliminate film costs
  • Eliminate chemical costs: image-setter fixer, developer, and plate toner cartridges
  • Eliminate maintenance contracts for image-setter and processor
  • Eliminate hazardous waste stream and supply shipping costs
Time and Efficiency Savings
  • Reduce plate making time: 1-2 minutes for an Imperial laser plate vs. 15 minutes for a polymer plate
  • Eliminate bad plates - total depth control gives consistent plates every time
  • Lower machine downtime: more reliable plates allow pad printing machines to run with fewer interruptions
