Digital Laser Material Processing
Universal Laser Systems Digital Laser Material Processing (DLMP™) technology enables designers and manufacturers to laser cut, engrave and mark on almost any material.
DLMP systems expand the potential for applications across organizations and in multiple departments including production, R&D and engineering, sales, marketing and facilities management.

DLMP technology offers various benefits and capabilities as part of any manufacturing business solution.
Virtually any design can be printed from your graphic software to the laser system software. Additionally, .DXF and .PDF file formats can be imported directly into the Universal Control Panel (UCP).
An endless number of materials are compatible with Universal’s laser system, including plastics, metals, silicone rubbers, fabrics, composites, laminating adhesives and other advanced materials to name a few.
Cut, engrave and mark in one step. Additionally, you can engrave or mark a high-resolution image on material. The laser systems can perform many different types of operations in a single step by seamlessly changing power, speed and other parameters with one click.
Ablate or modify material without applying any physical force. Using a non-contact method for cutting, engraving and marking, the laser system eliminates the need for physical tooling with dies, blades and cutters or permanent holding fixtures.
Process material in real time. Laser systems do not depend on physical tooling and are driven by software files. Getting started is as easy as placing the material in the laser system and processing the graphics file.
Universal Laser Applications
Universal Laser Systems provide four distinct applications
Removing and separating material along a designated path.
Removing material to a user-controlled depth.
Laser Marking (depth and surface)
Modifying a material surface to create a permanent mark.
Laser Photo Imaging (unique application)
Using special software to produce a permanent photographic image by engraving or marking.
Design to Lasered Process
1. DESIGN YOUR FILE
Virtually any graphic or CAD software with a functional print feature can be used including Adobe® Illustrator®, Adobe® Photoshop®, SOLIDWORKS®, AutoCAD® and many others.
2. PRINT OR IMPORT YOUR FILE
Print via a Windows driver or import a .PDF or .DXF using Universal’s Direct Import software. Imported files can be created in any operating system including Windows and Mac OS. Printed or imported files are displayed on the Universal Control Panel. The UCP allows you to preview the file before processing your material.
3. SELECT MATERIAL
Select a material from Universal’s extensive database of materials.
4. LOAD MATERIAL
Place the material in the laser system. No additional tooling is required.
5. PRESS GO
Press go – the laser system processes the material based on the graphic file sent to the UCP software.
Remove the finished product–the system immediately is ready for processing the same graphic file or a different one on the same or different material.
A wide variety of machines to meet your business needs
Choose a laser system platform below:
Modular Design Architecture
Universal products consists of platforms, lasers, productivity enhancement, safety and other modules that can be combined in various ways to create the ideal laser system for present and future business needs.
10.6μ CO2 lasers are available for laser systems, in either single or multiple laser configuration. The lasers in the system can be individually or simultaneously controlled, quickly delivering a wide power range from 10 to 150 watts. Also available are 9.3μ CO2 and 1.06μ fiber lasers. Every laser source is factory pre-aligned for easy integration into Universal’s laser platform depending on wavelength and power.
Dual Laser Configuration
A Dual Laser system combines the beams from two lasers into a single beam. This maximizes cutting, engraving and marking power. Using a patented technology, the system configuration eliminates polarization effects and delivers beam quality superior to that of a single laser.
