Cobalt PRO Co2 Laser Machine
The Cobalt PRO CO2 laser machine is an advanced CO2 laser plate-maker equipped with a 40W ceramic core laser. This laser plate-maker employs CO2 laser technology that produces high-resolution graphics (up to 1500 dpi) on the largest variety of plates including DuraLaze and exposed polymer. In addition to creating plates for pad printing, the 40W laser can be used for engraving promotional products.
The closed-loop DC servo motor featured on the Cobalt PRO ensures greater continuous shaft power at higher speeds than competitive lasers. It also makes for greater accuracy (0.254 mm or 0.1%) due to the continuous movement, rather than constant starting and stopping. The AutoFocus feature works to adjust the Cobalt PRO to the precise focal point on the engraving area. Build-wise, the Cobalt PRO features a 4-line LCD display panel showing current file name, total working time, laser power, engraving speeds, and more. It also has a 440 mm x 620 mm (17 in x 24 in) etching area for etching a large plate or multiple plates at once.
With the use of the Cobalt PRO and other laser plate-maker, an ventilation exhaust system is required. This unit must be provided with a minimum of 300 cubic m/hr or 176 CFM of exhaust ventilation either through a HEPA filtered fume extractor, or using a blower that is vented to the outside of a building. Inkcups provides the RX-5 which meets all the above requirements.
Compatible plate material includes DuraLaze, CrystaLaze, Laser Red, Laser Orange, and Laser Aqua.
