ULTRA 9 Platform
Expanded Material Possibilities
The ULTRA 9 platform offers laser material processing for the widest possible range of materials. It is designed and ideally suited for precision material processing in manufacturing, research and development, academic research, and prototyping environments.
The ULTRA 9 platform has a materials processing envelope of 36 x 24 in (914 x 610), with support for materials with a thickness up to 12 in (305 mm).
With its unique modular architecture, customizable solutions can be easily reconfigured with a wide array of options for enhancing performance, capability, and safety to complete the perfect solution to meet present and future business needs.
Universal Laser System
- Configure the customizable ULTRA 9 platform with up to three laser sources consisting of two interchangeable CO2 lasers and one fiber laser.
- When the platform is configured with three lasers, take advantage of MultiWave Hybrid technology enabling up to three wavelengths – 9.3 μm, 10.6 μm, and 1.06 μm – simultaneously combined into a single coaxial beam.
- Each spectral component of the beam is independently controlled and can be modulated in real time.

Why you should choose a Universal Laser System
Three advantages of the ULTRA 9 Platform
1. Print Anything
Virtually any design can be printed from your design software to the laser system software. Including Adobe® Illustrator®, Adobe® Photoshop®, AutoCAD®, SOLIDWORKS®, DraftSight® and many others. Additionally, .DXF and .PDF file formats can be imported into the Universal Control Panel (UPC).
2. One Step Process
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.
3. Just about any material
An endless number of materials are compatible with a Universal laser system, including plastics, metals, silicone rubbers, fabrics, composites, laminating adhesives and other advanced materials to name a few.
