Cosmos Laser Flexo
Easy handling, compact design, fast and high-quality engravings: This is what distinguishes our Cosmos Laser Flexo. With either fiber laser or C02 technology with multi-beam technology, the machine is suitable for dry offset engraving or label printing as well as 3D engraving and packaging printing of EPDM plates, sleeves and cylinders. 100 L/cm can be realized with up to 5,080 dpi.
We have the right machine version for every customer: with 500 or up to 1,500 watts, with single or double beam technology. For customers who want to engrave silicones or other non-fiber materials, we offer a 500-1.000 Watt Sealed C02 laser that produces fine engravings up to 2,540 dpi. Like all our laser engraving machines, this is equipped with an acousto-optical modulator (AOM). With this technology, the finest engraving results can be achieved at high switching speeds.
Undercut, variable shoulder settings, the intelligent Easy Template software, a user-friendly interface and many other software tools simplify the handling of the machine. Individual requirements, such as the integration of the respective national language into the control panel, can also be implemented. The production of our hard- and software is possible in our factory in Krefeld, Germany.
Cosmos Laser Screen
The Cosmos Laser Screen shows new possibilities of stencil engraving. With either 1 or 2 beams and a resolution of up to 2,540 dpi, our screen engraving Co2 laser is suitable for the highest demands and effective production.
The highlight of our system: No external gas is required. This significantly reduces operating costs compared to conventional systems. The Cosmos Laser Screen also scores in terms of maintenance costs. In addition, our engraving machines are equipped with an acousto-optical switch, which regulates the switch ability of the laser beam and thus enables the finest engravings.
Cosmos Laser Embossing
As a Fiber laser of the latest generation, our Cosmos Laser Embossing is suitable for the ablation of black etch resist for embossing roller engraving. The etch resist can be burnt away with 4 or 8 beams and a resolution of up to 5,080 dpi. The machine enables multiple engravings by means of a camera system, with the help of which the cylinder can be clamped precisely for subsequent engravings.
And these engravings are highly precise: Our engraving machines are equipped with an acousto-optical deflector (AOD) which regulates the switch ability of the laser beam. The system also scores highly in terms of cost: there is no need for external gas. In addition, maintenance costs are significantly lower thanks to Fiber technology than with conventional CO2 laser engraving systems.
With the Gravity Flat, embossing plates can be produced quickly and precisely in multiple stages. For this purpose, a liquid, etch-resistant medium is heated with a high-resolution multi-jet spray head and partially jetted onto the cylinder at up to 12m² / hour. Noses, faults or progressions? Nothing to report! The pressure drop solidifies as soon as it hits the medium. Only a finely defined pressure point remains on the plate. The plate is then etched and cleaned before the next layer is applied.
Design transfers of up to 1,440 dpi are no problem, nor are multiple etchings. This is because the plates can be clamped into the machine with multiple precise positions using a camera system. The mechanics of the vacuum table can be moved with an accuracy of just a few micrometers, so that even large plates can be positioned easily, quickly and accurately.
Our know-how is convincing: almost all leading manufacturers worldwide use our system technology. Often, even several systems are in operation in one plant. The respective machine size can be adapted to individual customer requirements.
Larger, faster, Gravity Rotary: With our high-end engraving machine, rollers can be produced quickly, precisely and in several stages. A roller of 200 cm length and 64 cm circumference, for example, is imaged in just 25 minutes and can then be etched.
Thanks to the high-resolution multi-jet spray head, designs can be transferred up to a resolution of 1,440 dpi – without noses, errors or gradients. 10 etchings and more are no problem for this engraving machine: Our customers use the Gravity Rotary for complex reliefs and structures. Thanks to a highly developed camera system, the cylinder can be clamped into the machine with multiple positions for further engraving.
The machine size is based on the individual wishes and requirements of our customers.
In terms of Gravity Mold, our success proves us right: More than 75 of these engraving machines are already used by our customers worldwide. Why? It can be used to produce molds in a digital, efficient process. In a quality that always remains the same – wherever the machine is used in the world.
With the Gravity Mold, design transfers of up to 1,440 dpi are possible. The machine uses a high-resolution multi-jet spray head to heat a liquid, etch-resistant medium to 85 to 125 degrees Celsius and partially sprays it onto a foil or paper. In a sophisticated transfer process, the foil is then inserted into the mould with the printed side down and rubbed off. The mold can then be etched at 40 to 45 degrees Celsius.
Our self-developed wax UV paste does not only provide excellent adhesive and transfer properties. In addition, it proves to be very acid-resistant, so that different acids can be used.
This unit is now as a rotary drum unit available.
Gravity 3D Prototyping
Finest 3D prints: This is the trademark of our Gravity 3D Prototyping. Coating layers between 10 µm and 1,000 µm are no problem with it. Gravity 3D Prototyping is suitable for a wide range of applications. Thanks to high-resolution multi-jet spray head technology, it jets the liquid medium partially onto either foil, paper, steel plates, copper foil or other materials – with a resolution of up to 1,800 dpi.
3D data can thus be printed quickly and precisely with multiple layers. Developed for the automotive industry, this printer produces test prints of up to 2 m² in 10 minutes per layer and even samples up to 6 m² or larger – streak-free and cost-effective. We are pleased to offer our Gravity 3D Prototyping as flatbed or drum printer.
3D & 2D Scanner
For the special needs of the wallpaper and decor industry we have developed our 3D & 2D scanner. Equipped with linear motors and vacuum plate, the innovative scanning table enables fast and precise scanning processes – even on surfaces that are not completely smooth. The scanning head moves in strips over the pattern and generates 2D and 3D scans with a resolution of 1,700 dpi in just one process. In the stitching process, the data is then put together – without any signs of any buildup being detected. Our machine is fast: The scanning time for originals of 50 cm x 60 cm is less than 20 minutes. Whether in lightweight construction with around 250 kg, which can even be set up in office buildings, or as a heavyweight that scans documents weighing up to 1.5 tons such as stones, woods or doors: With our 3D & 2D scanner, we have also remained true to our motto of simple operation thanks to internally developed software.
Our 3D scanner was developed for the highest scanning requirements. It scans the finest, reflective surfaces in the best resolution of 3,600 dpi. This is not only interesting for our customers in the automotive industry, but also suitable for embossing high-quality surface structures.
In order to achieve this, the scanner is equipped with a 3 x 3 cm gel pad. This captures the relief structures exactly on its upper side. This is then recorded with a camera before the gel pad moves to the next design point. By means of stitching, the individual tiles are finally assembled. With this procedure, we achieve the finest scan data: even hair or pores – for example in the case of leather structures – are imaged by our 3D scanner in the highest resolution.
Another advantage. By using the soft gel pad, our machine can also scan designs made of materials such as gold, bronze, glass as well as mirrors and transparents.
