ILS Model 9.75

Industrial SeriesILS9_150D_315px

The ILS9.75 platform is designed for laser material processing in a wide variety of production environments. Flexible enough to be installed as a standalone system or integrated into an automated manufacturing line, the ILS9.75 is an excellent choice for no-tool prototype production and is also used in research and development facilities around the world. In addition to a spacious 36″ x 24″ x 12″, 10,368 in3 (914 x 610 x 305mm, 169,901 cm3) material processing envelope, the ILS9.75 incorporates our Pass-Through feature, which allows both side doors to be opened to process material of unlimited length. Universal’s ILS platforms are also the only CO2 laser systems in the world that can be converted between CDRH Class 1 and CDRH Class 4.

The ILS9.75 is dual laser compatible and has a processing power range of 10 watts, when using our smallest laser cartridge, to 150 watts when using two of our 75-watt lasers. In addition to the basic capabilities of the machine, there are a number of patented Uniquely Universal features that are only available from Universal Laser Systems. These include Laser Interface+™ and Rapid Reconfiguration™; Dual Laser Configuration, SuperSpeed™ and Pass-Through™ are additional optional features that will reduce downtime and increase productivity. All Universal laser platforms use interchangeable components, giving you the ability to tailor your system to fit your needs.


Laser Technology Benefits

  • Software Controlled - The laser can be controlled by any software with a print function.
  • Multi-Material - Process an endless number of materials available today and in the future.
  • Multi-Process - Cut, engrave, mark, and produce photo images in one step.
  • Non Contact - Modify material without applying any physical force.
  • On Demand - Produce everything you need in real time, without waiting for hard tooling.


Uniquely Universal Features

ULR Laser Sources
Universal’s patented air-cooled free-space gas slab lasers produce an excellent quality beam with even power distribution and good near- and far-field characteristics, making them ideal for laser material processing.
Rapid Reconfiguration™ of Lasers
Laser platforms with Rapid Reconfiguration can be reconfigured with new laser sources in seconds, without tools. This allows you to configure your laser system to suit the task at hand, increasing quality and throughput.
High Power Density Focusing Optics™
High Power Density Focusing Optics (HPDFO) allow the laser beam to be focused to a much smaller spot, making it possible to engrave smaller text and produce sharper images at tighter tolerances.
Laser Interface+™
This materials-based driver automatically determines the optimum processing settings for your target material. Just select the material type, enter in the material thickness, and start the laser system.
1-Touch Laser Photo™
1-Touch Laser Photo is a proprietary software package that makes it quick and easy to produce photographic images on nearly any material.
Dual Laser Configuration
The Dual Laser Configuration optically combines two ULS laser sources into a single beam for additional power and flexibility.
SuperSpeed is suitable for raster image applications and requires Dual Laser Configuration. This component allows two lines of a raster image to be produced simultaneously. For vector cutting, the laser beams can be combined to take advantage of higher power.
When used in conjunction with an approved work environment, our large-format ILS laser platforms can be configured to allow processing of items of unlimited length in full compliance with Class IV laser safety regulations.
