XF & uSpot Comparison

The combination of speed, engraving resolution, and efficiency! Meet the μSpot - the new 6W blue laser head with working speeds up to 2.5x faster than our PLH3D-6W-XF professional laser head. Our new CNC laser is particularly useful in industrial applications.

PLh3D-6W-uSpot is 2.5x faster than PLH3D-6W-XF laser head

The μSpot CNC Laser - Designed With Industry In Mind

From the very beginning, Opt Lasers laser heads have been distinguished by their ergonomics, thoughtful solutions, and high quality. Now with the arrival of μSpot, the Opt Lasers CNC laser family has expanded. Thanks to the best-in-class focus of the laser beam, we have obtained an even smaller spot size that increases the optical output power by 20%. The μSpot ensures the fastest cutting and engraving speeds possible with a 6W laser as well as a higher engraving resolution. Our new laser head will satisfy even the most demanding professionals.

The μSpot is perfect for cutting thin materials, especially textiles. It enables precise and extremely fast engraving on wood, plywood, leather, cardboard and most plastics, as well as on anodized and painted metals. Our new 6W laser is also perfect for titanium and stainless steel marking. The reduction of the spot surface and the increase of work speed were achieved thanks to the new, customized optics. The μSpot does not require any additional cooling. In industrial applications, μSpot works better than our current heads as a replacement for expensive CO2 lasers.
