VLS Platform Model 3.60

Designed to grow your business

Platform Description


The CO2 laser model VLS 3.60 is the entry level system of Universal’s VLS platform series. It is the smallest of the three available VLS platform models. The first noticeable differences between the platforms and the desktop series are the front loading door and stand with casters. This, along with 9 inches of Z-axis clearance and a 60 watt maximum power, puts the VLS 3.60 at a different level of capability.
The marking area on the VLS 3.60 is 12? x 24? with a 9 inch maximum Z-axis part size. The VLS platforms use the same 10.6 micron CO2 laser cartridges and same print driver & control panel as all other models. Available laser cartrdiges range from 10 to 60 watts.
You will find the VLS 3.60 in industries such as Trophy & Awards, Architectural, and the Sign industry. Wood workers find the platforms favorable due to the 9 inch Z clearance.
