Jamie Fobert collaborates with a diverse clientele, ranging from individual homeowners to prominent cultural organisations and global retailers. They consistently apply their innovative approach to transform client aspirations and site complexities into a tangible architecture that harmonises volume, material, and light.

After an initial consultation with Jamie Fobert and careful consideration it was decided the VLS4.75 – 50-Watt laser was the best option to suit their needs.

VLS4.75 Laser Cutter

The VLS4.75 is a free-standing platform with a materials processing envelope of 610 x 457 x 216 mm or 60,214 cm³. The single laser platform supports a 10.6µm CO2 laser source ranging in power from 10 to 75 watts or one 9.3µm CO2 30 watt, 50 watt, or 75 watt laser source. 


Laser Features

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.


Various accessories can also be purchased to customise the VLS4.75 laser cutter. View our product page to download the full specifications here.
