The WID C500 laser engraving/cutting machine available in four different-sized models.

As the recently appointed exclusive UK and Ireland distributor of WID laser engraving/cutting machines, Graphtec GB is now offering the latest C Series in a choice of four different-sized models (the 500, 700, 900 and 1000). These have been developed to accommodate the total requirements of digital engraving/cutting specialist companies. All of the machines are robustly constructed and of a compact design to facilitate installation in small work shops where space is invariably at a premium.

The C Series provides respective processing areas of 700 x 500, 1000 x 700, 1300 x 900 and 1600 x 1000mm, with variable cutting speeds of up to 90,000 mm/min on the 500 model and 72,000mm/min on the 700, 900 and 1000 models. The machines incorporate CO2 tube and on selective models RF (Radio Frequency) lasers, sourced through partnerships forged with leading specialist laser manufacturers, with power ratings ranging from 60W on the 500 and 700 models and incrementally up to 120W on the 900 and 1000 models. All of the machines are supplied with dedicated user-friendly multi-tool software compatible with AI, DST, PLT, BMP and DXF graphic file formats and provide USB and Network connectivity.

Key design features include a 150mm adjustable machine height facility, automatic temperature and air control systems and smoke/dust extraction and waste retrieval units.  These are supplemented with an optional autofocus-empowered CCD camera that ensures precise material/object recognition, adjustment and alignment to accommodate even the most complex applications likely to be encountered. Collectively, these contribute to much higher productivity levels and processing speeds said to be five times faster than any other similarly positioned engraving/cutting machine currently available.

Developed to complement the varying skill levels of both entry-level and seasoned professional operatives and for use in applications not suited to conventional CNC routing/cutting/engraving systems, the WID C Series of machines will laser cut and/or engrave a wide range of disparate materials. These include, for example, acrylic and various plastics, hard surfaces such as marble, glass and slate, solid woods and laminates, stainless steel and other non-ferrous metals and various alloys like brass and copper.
