Glass Company presents ELS 3D Laser Engraving System

The laser engraving systems ELS 02 and ELS 03 are designed for reproduction of three dimensional objects or two dimensional images, by creation of point defects in bulk transparent materials, such as optical glasses, crystal and polymers.

The finished product is characterized by a high quality graphic that reproduces with high precision and speed the original pattern or motive inside glass or translucent material, while the surface remains untouched.

System Components

1. Q-switched Nd: YAG LASER
2. Cabinet with 3D positioning system
3. Personal computer (optionally) with Sculptor control software


- Unique optical design: each dot is created in a glass volume of fine quality, and the final engraved 3D object looks of similar quality from any directions.

- The resolution of 2D images can be upon 300 dpi.

- Smart control of X Y Z positioning system provides high speed, accuracy, low noise, low vibration operation.

- WIN-Based software Sculptor provides unique possibility to control engraving process in real time on 3D views; furthermore Sculptor includes possibility for the operator of final image adjustment like moving, rotation, and uniform (non-uniform) scale.


AutoCAD®, Adobe® Photoshop®, Corel® PHOTOPAINT® for 2D images and Discreet® 3ds MAX™ for 3D images. Import function for dxf, stl, 3dmax, bmp, ai format.

Concerning 2D images, Sculptor can operate with usual 1-bit Black & White BMP format. To prepare 3D images, it is necessary a special MaxScript (supplied with the machine) in order to convert 3ds max figures to the dots arrays and export them to the Sculptor environment.

ELS required operating conditions:

- power: 220V, 50-60 Hz, 16 A;
- ambient temperature: 293±5 K;
- relative humidity: at 295 K: 40-80%
- atmosphere pressure: 84-104kPa
