CONCEPTS BECOME REALITY WITH THE DREMEL DIGILAB LC40 LASER CUTTER

The Dremel DigiLab Desktop Laser Cutter can help turn the great idea in your head into a physical object in just minutes. Utilizing a 40W CO2 laser mounted onto a linear ball bearing and rail guideway gantry system, the LC40 Laser Cutter is capable of cutting, scoring, and engraving intricate designs into a plethora of hard and soft materials. This allows users to achieve a precise level of detail on their projects that is not possible by hand, and in a fraction of the time. Operation of the LC40 Laser Cutter is simple thanks to the responsive 7” LCD touch screen. From here, you can start, pause, and view your lasering project status without the need to check your computer. Maximize your uptime by taking advantage of the large workspace to machine size ratio--utilize the entire 20”x12” work area to create batches of multiple objects at once with the Auto-Array feature in the DigiLab software, or enjoy the freedom to work on larger projects.

THE WEB-BASED DREMEL DIGILAB SOFTWARE SUITE IS INTUITIVE AND DYNAMIC

The Dremel DigiLab software is hosted locally on the Laser Cutter itself, works through both Ethernet and Wi-Fi, and boasts a comprehensive Materials Library containing ready-to-use profiles for an extensive range of popular materials to use for laser cutting projects. To help prepare your projects for lasering, the Dremel DigiLab LC40 Desktop Laser Cutter possesses a super-accurate smart camera capture feature that allows users to visually position designs onto their material through the Dremel DigiLab browser-based software for a truly point-and-click experience. With the DigiLab software, users can import and use any design, drawing, or digital artwork to cut, score, or engrave onto their chosen material.

The advanced motion system in the Dremel DigiLab LC40 Desktop Laser Cutter utilizes linear ball bearings and a rail guideway gantry for high-accuracy, high-precision lasering.

THE DREMEL DIGILAB LC40 LASER CUTTER IS TESTED AND CERTIFIED FOR SAFETY

The Dremel DigiLab LC40 Laser Cutter is the first and only UL certified laser cutter on the market. This certification was obtained after Dremel’s rigorous 20,000 hours of testing in which the device was stress-tested, slammed, zapped, and even set on fire--all so users can have around-the-clock confidence that the LC40 Laser Cutter will provide a safe and reliable experience every time This is due in part to Dremel’s patented array of smart sensors which continuously monitor machine and laser operation with real-time safety diagnostics to prevent any potentially hazardous situations, and assist with troubleshooting. The included Hex Box houses both laser cooling and air assist systems which allow the work area to remain clear of debris and smoke while lasering. This translates to more accurate lasering and unlocks continuous run time. The Dremel DigiLab LC40 Desktop Laser Cutter emits exhaust that will need to be safely handled. You can attach the included hoses to send exhaust outside through a window, or you can purchase the bundle option to include a BOFA AD350 Laser Engraver Fume Extractor so that you can run the LC40 Laser Cutter anywhere inside your home, classroom, workshop, or business with complete peace-of-mind. The BOFA AD350 will require filter changes every 12 to 18 months, and replacement filters can be found here at MatterHackers as well. Overall, the Dremel DigiLab LC40 Laser Cutter requires minimal maintenance to maintain, and repairs are very simple to perform. For an ideal lasering experience, it is recommended that the laser head is properly calibrated manually before each job starts.
