The Fusion M2 32 and the larger Fusion M2 40!
It's our new concept in laser system design, featuring:
And we're proud to say it is designed, engineered and built in the USA!
Epilog Fusion M2 32 Laser: With a large table size of 32" x 20" (812 x 508 mm), the Fusion M2 32 is our newest product offering! The high quality engraving across the entire table is a result of the highest-quality components, high-speed servo motors, and the exciting optional Dual Source and Camera Registration options.
Epilog Fusion M2 40 Laser: With an oversized table of 40" x 28" (1016 x 711 mm), the Fusion M2 40 features Epilog's largest work area. This machine was designed to engrave the same high-quality image at any point on the table by utilizing our top-of-the-line motion control system and industry-leading optics system.

Yes! Personalization and customization of products is in high demand. Adding a laser engraving service to your current operation is an excellent way to reach possible new customers as well as offer a valued service to your current client base. If you have any doubts about the profitability of owning a CO2 laser system, visit our Applications page or read our many Customer Success Stories.
For some insight into the profitability of laser engraved products, take a look at the website for LaserBits, a supplier of laserable materials. There you will find purchase prices for raw laserable materials and suggested retail prices for those same products once they have been laser engraved.
Also check out our new Guidebook to Starting Your Own Engraving & Cutting Business to see the ins and outs of starting a new laser business.
You can engrave scanned photos, logos, bitmaps, other images, text, and AutoCAD files. Essentially, if you can print it, you can engrave it.
To cut, you will need a vector based graphic, such as an .eps or Illustrator file.
Keep in mind the higher the quality of the graphic you're working with, the better your engraving results.
Yes. Our fiber laser systems are capable of permanently marking nearly all types of bare metal. The fiber laser line was designed with a combination of affordability and high quality results in mind. The Fusion M2 series features a 32" x 20" (812 x 508 mm) or 40" x 28" (1016 x 711 mm) work area. The flat-bed, flying-optic design of the Fusion M2 is revolutionary for a fiber laser system and will mark metals over a large work area in a short amount of time.
And, though our CO2 laser systems are mainly designed to engrave and cut non-metallic materials, they can also be used to mark on metal with the aid of metal-marking compound. Download our PDF to learn more about marking metal with a CO2 laser system.
Since we use low power CO2 (30 to 120 watts) and fiber lasers (10 to 50 watts) the beam will clearly mark on coated and raw metal but our systems are not ideally suited for metal-cutting applications. Our fiber laser systems may be compatible for cutting some thin metals as we have seen success cutting thin foils, up to .012", with our fiber lasers.
Please contact our Applications Lab to discuss your metal-cutting applications and see if they can work with our systems!
Yes, the laser is completely safe to operate. It is a Class 2 laser - 1 mW CW MAXIMUM 600-700 nm, which means that the laser is secured with interlock devices so it will not run with the doors of the system open. No special safety gear is required to run the laser.
The cost of operating the laser can be easily figured out by plugging your electricity rates into the following formula using even our highest wattage laser, the 120 watt.
Typical Max power consumption = 1560 Watts (This assumes full power, constant laser on.) If power costs $0.075/KWH in your area, it is costing $0.117/hour to operate the laser. Or, about 12 cents per hour, or 96 cents per eight hour day. (1560 x .075)/1000 = .117
No, one laser does it all! Our CO2 laser systems will engrave and cut most non-metallic materials, as well as engrave coated metals. For information on what materials you can engrave and cut, visit our Materials page.
The laser can be set to engrave only (Raster Mode), cut only (Vector Mode), or can complete both operations in Combined Mode. The laser knows what portions to engrave and what portions to cut based on line width, which is easily set in your graphic design software.
Investing in a new computer is a great way to make sure you’re getting the most out of your new laser equipment. Why? Because today’s software requires a lot of computer processing speed and memory to function properly. A good computer won’t make a huge difference in how your laser runs, but when compared to a slow computer it will save untold amounts of time and frustration setting up the artwork that you “print” to the laser. Many users do not purchase new computers for use with their new laser because their current computers are perfectly adequate. There’s no magical cut-off that makes a computer too slow. If you’re comfortable with the performance and speed of your current computer, there’s probably no reason to purchase another one. The following recommendations are just options to consider if a new computer is necessary.
A new computer doesn’t have to be expensive to work well! Even many of today’s lower-cost computers work well for laser applications. As long as you don’t buy the cheapest computer you can find you should be fine. One thing to avoid is the Intel Celeron processor – while they are good processors, and will work with the laser, they don’t process graphics with the speed most laser users desire.

The source is a fiber laser: a fiber optic cable that has been doped with ytterbium, a rare earth element.
The fiber laser produces the same wavelength of light and the same marks. YAG lasers typically require cooling and more maintenance.
Yes, especially to the operator's eyes. Additionally the wavelength will pass through common Lexan or glass materials, which is why the viewing window has been impregnated with an organic compound that absorbs the fiber energy. Do not run the laser with the safety locks defeated.
The fiber laser pulls 8-10 amps on a 110-volt circuit, and 4-5 amps on a 220 volt circuit.

All metals can be engraved into with some depth; however, some metals are more amenable to depth engraving. Softer aluminum material will engrave with depth with only a few passes. The best way to test your material is with our Applications Lab.
The Fiber Laser can only cut through very thin gauge metals. We've had success at cutting up to 0.012" (.30 mm) thick metals.
Yes, by using the polished mark settings for bare metal, the black oxide color will be removed to expose the lighter native metal color.
Systems start below $35,000 (US price only) for a 30 watt system.
