The school had specific requirements in mind - they needed a laser with a generous bed size, capable of effortlessly cutting through all the materials used by their students, while also being compact enough to fit into the space they had allocated.


Hobarts introduced to them the VLS3.60DT - a remarkable 50-Watt Laser that ticks all the boxes!


Designed as a desktop laser, this cutting-edge technology takes up minimal space, yet delivers an impressive amount of power. With its spacious working area of (610mm x 305mm), it is the perfect laser for any DT department.

Laser Features Include


Air-Cooled Laser Source
Because our laser sources are air-cooled, no complicated liquid cooling systems are required.

High Reliability, Excellent Power Stability
Our laser sources provide consistent power for predictably excellent processing results.

Laser Fan Control (to reduce noise)
Universal’s lasers are all air cooled by computer-controlled fans. Fan speed is reduced or increased as a function of laser temperature, reducing noise levels when the lasers are being used on lower power settings.

Laser Pointer
A red laser pointer is installed for easy material alignment.

Patented Cross-Platform Compatibility
Laser sources can be freely interchanged between laser platforms.

Patented Free-Space Gas Slab Laser Design
Our patented laser sources use free-space gas slab resonators to produce an excellent quality beam with even power distribution and good near and far field characteristics.

Patented Pre-Aligned Laser Sources
Laser sources are pre-aligned at the factory and do not need to be internally realigned.

Smart Laser Source Technology
Because we manufacture our own lasers, Universal’s lasers can communicate their model number to the laser system CPU, allowing the laser system to automatically choose the right settings for a particular material based on available laser power.
