Removable Laser Top

Split your machine in half – place it atop the utility carriage and roll large objects beneath to laser.

EZ-Leveling System

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.

100w High Power Laser Tube

A state of the art, S Series Reci 100w 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.

Axis Bearings

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.)

Speed/Power Control

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.

Multilayer Engraving

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.

Motion Control

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.

LaserCut Interface

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.

Starting Positions

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.

Air Assist

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.

Operating Modes

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.

How does the AP Lazer machine work?

A laser machine works by directing a very powerful laser beam at a precise focal length onto a variety of materials. Depending on the speed and power set, the laser beam will either remove the surface of the material or cut through it.

What makes AP Lazer different than other laser machines?

Unlike its competitors, the AP Lazer system is a two part machine. No other machine on the market has a removable laser top which allows you to use the laser machine in a variety of set-ups. Keep the laser top on its home base and it functions like a traditional ‘boxed-up’ laser machine. Removing the top from the home base and place it on the Utility Carriage to roll objects directly beneath the laser area or place over a conveyor belt. The equipped EZ-Leveling system allows you to place the removable top directly onto any flat surface such as marble or granite flooring and engrave. See the AP Lazer difference for yourself.

Is the AP Lazer only for engraving granite?

Of course not! Although created for and first used in the monument industry, the AP Lazer can engrave/cut a wide variety of materials.
