The Emblaser 2 allows you to adjust the height of the laser during the cutting or engraving process, allowing for the third dimension to be incorporated into your creations. This height adjustment occurs automatically, and allows for cutting through thicker materials and much greater depth in 3D engravings.
The Emblaser 2 community has tested and had excellent results with some materials that might surprise you!
It can cut:
It can mark:
MIA is a system built into the Emblaser 2 which maintains a constant awareness of any potential ignition of material, which is a theoretical possibility with any laser cutter. If detected, MIA places the machine into a safety mode and sounds the warning alarm, so you're never in danger as you cut!
Cutting into any material generates some particulates that can be dangerous to breathe, and can affect the cleanliness of the cut, so the Emblaser 2 comes with the Air-Assist, an air compressor that will remove that nasty air away from the job at hand, and out through the included hose, so you can direct it out of your print space and keep your air clean.
The Air-Assist also ensures clear, clean air right at the point of cutting, ensuring the laser hits the media it needs to and isn't diffused by any particulate matter from the media itself. This improves the clarity and accuracy, so your projects are as sharp and beautiful as they need to be.
When setting up the air-flow for your Emblaser, placing the hose near a window should work well, but if you're in an enclosed area, or are especially sensitive to fumes, it's highly recommended that you connect your laser cutter/engraver to a fume extractor. The AD Access plugs right into the Emblaser's hose, and pulls all air in the work area into it's three layers of air filtration, using it's 106 CFM fans. The air then goes back into your work space, clean and safe and ready to breathe.
DarklyLabs has created the excellent machine control software Lightburn, the powerful and dynamic control platform software for the Emblaser 2. It has a simple drag and drop interface, similar to Carbide Create or Inventables Easel. You can design images and patterns in your favorite drawing or design platform, then import them into Lightburn to start using your Emblaser 2.
Each LightBurn license included with a new machine purchase will contain 10 activations. This will allow customers to install the software onto 10 different computers. By default, LightBurn licenses are 'system-locked', which means they are locked to the computer on which they have been installed. They can be de-activated and re-activated through the software to switch them between computers as required. Upon request, a customer can obtain extra activations at no extra cost, or inquire about getting a floating license.
Alternatively you may use open-source software such as LaserWeb. It has fewer bells and whistles, but could be a nice solution depending on your use-case.
The diode laser in the Emblaser 2 is so well designed, that DarklyLabs has increased the laser's warranty to three years! An unprecedented amount of coverage, this means that if you have any trouble with your laser within the first three years of ownership, the manufacturer will replace it for you.
And of course, for the entire life of the machine, MatterHackers is here for you for any problems or questions. Your laser engraving days are covered! Now what will you make?
