The PLS6MW Multi-Wavelength Laser Platform uses multiple laser wavelengths to process the broadest possible spectrum of materials. The PLS6MW is built on Universal’s patented Rapid Reconfiguration technology, so changing laser wavelength is as easy as changing the laser source and requires no tools, optics changes or software reconfiguration. This cost-effective, small-footprint, total material processing solution is ideal for fast-paced R&D and production environments and is only available from Universal Laser Systems.

1.06 micron – Fiber
Materials: Most metals, some plastics. When configured with a 1.06 micron pre-aligned interchangeable fiber laser, the PLS6MW can mark most metals and some plastics.

10.6 micron – CO2
Materials: Plastics, textiles, wood and some metals. Reconfigure the PLS6MW with a standard 10.6 micron pre-aligned interchangeable CO2 laser to open up the full breadth of organic material processing capabilities.

9.3 micron – CO2
Materials: Some plastics. Reconfigure the PLS6MW with a specialized 9.3 micron pre-aligned interchangeable CO2 laser for excellent results on certain highly-functional plastics.

Materials: Some complex materials, including mirrored acrylic, adhesive-backed foils and some plastics. The multi-wavelength functionality of the PLS6MW can be used to accomplish some tasks which are impossible if only a single laser source is used.

Downdraft Cutting Table

Camera Registration

This accessory provides a raised platform of honeycomb material to support materials for cutting applications. Exhaust smoke and fumes are removed from above and below the material being cut, keeping the material clean and producing better cuts.

Key Benefits

  • Better quality cuts
  • Cleaner work surface

Rotary Fixture

The Rotary Fixture accessory extends the capabilities of Universal’s laser systems by giving the user the ability to mark or engrave cylindrical objects.

Key Benefits
  • Engrave cylindrical objects
  • Rotates automatically

BOFA Air Filtration System

Purchase Replacement Filters

Designed to eliminate gaseous and particulate compounds generated by activities within the laser engraving, marking and coding industries. These filters have the combined benefits of long life spans and low costs of replacement.

PLS 6.150D, & PLS MW Platform


Dual Head

This accessory can simultaneously engrave or cut two copies of an image or pattern, greatly increasing productivity when an image or cutting pattern needs to be repeated many times. Laser power available for each copy of the image or cut is half the total power available from the laser, so a higher powered laser is recommended for thicker materials.

Key Benefits
  • Produce multiple identical items quickly
  • Increases both engraving and cutting speeds

Digital Air Assist

Conveys compressed air to the carriage of the motion system. When used with a Cone or Back Sweep accessory, it directs compressed air onto the surface of the material being laser processed. Air volume is controlled by the Laser Interface+™ print driver and can be automatically adjusted on the fly.

Key Benefits
  • Protects optics
  • Improves cutting and engraving performance

Air Assist Cone

Back Sweep


This interface makes it possible to integrate a Universal laser system into an automated manufacturing cell.

Key Benefits
  • Allows integration into factory line
  • Accepts standard factory automation signals

Adobe Illustrator CC

Adobe Illustrator CC is the industry-standard vector graphics software used worldwide by designers of all types who want to create digital graphics, illustrations, and typography for all kinds of media.

Vector graphics are one of the two most commonly used graphic formats in design, the other being bitmap (or raster) graphics. Vector graphics, like those created with Illustrator, are resolution independent, which means they can be resized infinitely with no loss of quality. For example, the same logo design created with Illustrator can be used on a business card or an outdoor billboard, maintaining the accuracy and detail of the original design.

System Requirements For Adobe Illustrator CC
  • Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon 64 processor
  • Microsoft Windows 7 with Service Pack 1, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1
  • 1 GB of RAM (3 GB recommended) for 32 bit; 2 GB of RAM (8 GB recommended) for 64 bit
  • 2 GB of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation (cannot install on removable flash storage devices)
  • 1024 x 768 display (1280 x 800 recommended)
  • To view Illustrator in HiDPI mode, your monitor must support a resolution of 1920 x 1080 or more
  • To use the new Touch workspace in Illustrator, you must have a touch screen enabled tablet/monitor running Windows 8.1. (Microsoft Surface Pro 3 recommended)
