SN2816 Laser Engraver
Fully equipped with a 28” x 16” work area, removable laser top, EZ-Leveling System, and a high power 80w laser tube, the SN2816 laser engraving machine is ideal for engraving smaller items such as personalized gifts, awards and trophies, jewelry ornaments, granite or marble urns pet memorials, granite markers, leather goods, wood pieces, wine bottles (rotary attachment needed) and much more. It’s open architecture and removable top allows for laser engraving larger, heavier items that don’t fit in the traditional ‘boxed-up’ laser system. If you have a smaller space requirements, or only plan on laser engraving smaller items, this high power laser engraving machine might be your answer.
Purchasing this laser engraver will improve the speed and quality of the engraving you currently perform at your facility. If your facility doesn’t already have engraving and is looking to add value to products, a laser engraver is an ideal way to add customization to your products.

Removable Laser Top
Split your machine in half – place it atop the utility carriage and roll large objects beneath to laser.
EZ Leveling Wheels allow you to adjust the four corners of the machine independently. The EZ Leveling system reduces the need to use shims to level materials and increases safety when working with heavier materials.
80w High Power Laser Tube
A state of the art, S Series Reci 80w laser tube provides exceptional performance, advanced stability and is highly efficient. Reci laser tubes are liquid cooled, economically replaceable, and easily aligned. Cutting speed is often doubled and a longer life span is expected in comparison to other laser tubes.
The X and Y-Axis are fixed on linear guide bearings. Linear guide bearings provide a precision glide, allowing for increased speeds while maintaining impeachable accuracy. With proper lubrication and normal operational use, the bearings should last a minimum of three years.
Maximum Table Weights
When using the automated Z-Axis lift table, the maximum static weight is 80 pounds with a maximum lifting weight of 55 pounds. The AP Lazer has a patented removable base allowing for moving larger materials under the AP Lazer for engraving.
Vents out smoke, dust and fumes. AP Lazers are equipped with a blower and 6″ fitted aluminum flexible vent that attaches to the top of the machine. If fumes are harmful, an additional filter is required (not packaged with AP Lazer.)
Control both speed and power with the computer and/or the control panel on the AP Lazer. A percentage based power setting that allows for corner compensation when utilizing cut mode operation. Speed is controlled by a literal setting rather than a less reliable percentage based system. Speed can be set from .001 inches per second up to 31 inches per second. This system of speed control allows for ultimate precision when making speed adjustments.
One job, multiple speed and power settings. Cut laser vectors and engrave raster images simultaneously, saving you both time and money.
Plug and Play
Unlike other machines, the AP Lazer plugs directly into the common 110v electrical outlet.
The AP Lazer system utilizes the industry preferred high-speed micro stepper motors. The design of the stepper motor provides a constant holding torque without the need for the motor to be powered. Provided that the motor is used within its limits, positioning errors don’t occur.
The LaserCut interface, proprietary to the Leetro controller, allows for the handling of numerous file types from many types of photo-editing and CAD software packages. (Including but not limited to: CorelDraw Suite, Adobe Creative Suite, AutoCAD, and CAD software platforms.) The LaserCut interface is compatible with Windows® XP/7/8/10 both 32bit and 64bit operating systems. The file transfer is performed via USB connection to the computer at speeds up to 500KB per second or via USB Flash Drive direct transfer.
Advanced Memory Controller
Standalone Leetro controller with 128MB of independent memory allows for processing and storage of numerous larger sized files. The standalone controller allows for computer free operation once the file has been downloaded to the controller.
Red Dot Diode
The Red Dot Diode provides a visual aid that assists in finding your starting position and proper positioning of your material to be engraved or cut.
The AP Lazer system allows you to select from 9 different starting positions in reference to the image or file to be engraved/cut. This allows for ultimate control and ease of operation breaking the confines of a “home position.”
While resolution is user controlled up to 1000 dpi, the actual engraving dpi is dependent upon the size of condensing lens installed on the laser engravers. The standard 2 inch condensing lens has a point of impact of .003 inches, allowing for approximately 300 dpi. The AP Lazer has additional lens sizes available allowing for different levels of precision and detail.
High pressure air assist provides protection to the condensing optics and enhances engraving/cutting performance by removing debris and restricting combustible gases from the engraving surface, reducing the chance of fire.
The AP Lazer Systems allows for multiple modes of operation. Engrave or “raster” mode will allow the engraving of bitmap images and/or vector files. Cut mode will allow for the cutting or tracing of vector file formats. You may also combine the different operations with different layers to perform multiple functions during a single operation.
AP Lazer Systems utilize high quality rubber belts. The less rigid rubber belts are ideal for prolonging the life of the stepper motor drive systems and pulley bearings by not applying a constant rigid torque on the components.
(Excluding SN1812, which has it’s own unique accessory package.)
Utilize our patented removable laser top by removing it from
the base and placing it atop the Utility Carriage. This configuration
allows for lasering small to large items beneath.
Mechanical Lift Cart
Place large, bulky objects on the lift cart and roll directly
beneath the laser head. For use when removable laser top is
place on the Utility Carriage.
Weight capacity: 2,200 lbs.
The Rotary Attachment allows you to engrave wine bottles,
mugs, glasses, flashlights and more. Setup is as easy as placing
your product on the Rotary Attachment, focusing the laser lens
and printing to the laser.
Laser irregular shaped objects with a slanted surface. Allows
for engraving slant markers and leveling other irregular shaped
objects to the laser bead. Designed for the monument industry
but comes in handy for many other purposes.
Corel has it all: a quick, intuitive workflow, high-value digital
content and design tools that let you do more than you ever
thought possible! Create layouts for any laser job and please
your customers using CorelDraw!
Specifically designed for laser machines. Processes scanned
photos allowing them to be lasered into a variety of materials.
Protect yourself from potentially hazardous debris and high
power laser radiation.

*CO2 lasers can mark bare metals when coated with a metal laser marking material (LMM) solution. AP Lazer does not sell LMM solutions directly but they are available through retailers like LaserBits. As we do not manufacture the LMM solutions, we are unable to guarantee their effectiveness. Please follow-up with LaserBits and/or LMM solution manufacturers for additional information.
**NOTE: Do not engrave PVC and other potentially harmful plastic materials. Consult the plastic manufacturer and/or obtain a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) to verify safety.
