The Most Compact of All Fiber Lasers

The CobaltONE is the newest evolution in laser plate etching machines by Inkcups. It utilizes the latest in fiber laser technology enabling it to etch the smallest dot size and the finest images ever achieved.

Laser plate etching machine

The CobaltONE’s name is derived from the ability to combine all aspects of the laser plate etching technology into ONE. Although small in size, the CobaltONE contains an integrated computer system with an Intel i5 processor, solid state hard drive, and a USB 3.0 port to easily upload artwork. Its compact footprint allows it to fit in small spaces- much different from any other laser plate etching machine on the market. Use our patented Cobalt Plates to etch images in minutes and for use of up to 30,000+ impressions. Cobalt Plates
