Product Description

Emblaser Core

The Emblaser Core requires assembly
Please see details and instructions below

The Emblaser Core is designed for the hobbyist who is looking for an affordable laser cutter / engraver that is simple to assemble and maintain. It utilises the same core technology as the Emblaser 2, the electronics, optics and laser system, providing amazing performance for a solid-state based laser machine.

CD-soft arranged for direct shipping from the manufacturer to my door so I could have the machine a little sooner. As for the Emblaser Core. Love the quality on the engraving produced and lightburn is a good choice for cad/cam software. Overall very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend CD-soft & the emblaser core.

Awesome product and service. I had some problems getting going, mostly due to my impatience but the help I got to resolve the problems was outstanding.

All parts of the machine are easily accessible, making maintenance a simple process. From lens cleaning to completely replacing the laser diode takes only minutes. Perfect for the hobbyist who wants to spend more time using their machine to make things, than tinkering with it.

The Emblaser Core can cut, mark or engrave cloth, cardboard, paper, leather, wood, plastics and so much more. A true 3D cutting & engraving machine, the Emblaser Core allows you to achieve different levels of depths and details. It gives your piece that extra dimension by giving you the control to adjust the height of the laser while cutting. Cut through thicker materials by setting your laser to automatically lower with multiples passes.

Automatic Laser Height

One of the incredible features of the Emblaser Core is its software controlled laser height.

No need to fiddle around adjusting the laser height for your materials. Either use the software material library or enter your material thickness. The Emblaser Core does the rest, setting the laser to the optimal focus height.

Automatically adjust the height of the laser while cutting and engraving to gain an extra dimension of control.

Cut through thicker materials by setting your laser to automatically lower with multiples passes. Create 3D engravings with depth or automatically adjust the sharpness of your laser to create sharp lines or soft fills. So many possibilities!

Large Workspace

Working on larger materials is now possible with a 500mm x 300mm (19.66″ x 11.81″) work area, PLUS the ability to use larger materials with the pass-thru built into the machine sides.

Reliability & Low Maintenance

Our solid-state laser diode gives unparalleled reliability compared to most CO2 laser systems.

No need to complicated mirror calibration and cleaning. Run the Emblaser Core continuously without the need for messy water cooling setups.

Spend more time working on your projects and less time tweaking your machine.

3D Engraving

Create stunning 3D engravings with depth or adjust sharpness to create sharp lines or soft fills with the automatic Z axis of the head.
