SN4836 Laser Machine


Laser Machine

The SN4836 is our largest and most popular laser system. Its large 48″ x 36″ work area makes it ideal for all laser engraving and cutting needs. With its patented removable laser top and open architecture design, this laser machine has virtually no restrictions in its application. With a 100w laser tube (upgradable to 130w) you can blast into brick and stone, power through thick acrylic and many other porous materials.

The SN4836 laser cutting machine is ideal for custom laser cutting and engraving onto nearly any material including large doors, countertops, commercial signage, flooring and so much more.

The SN4836 Key Features & Details

Removable Laser Top

Place the SN4836 top of the utility carriage to roll large objects beneath it to laser engrave.

100W Laser Tube

State of the art 100W glass laser tubes provide exceptional performance, advanced stability and are highly efficient. They are liquid cooled, economically replaceable, and easily aligned.

*130w upgrade available upon request.

EZ Leveling System

The EZ Leveling System allows adjustment of the four corners of the machine independently and increases safety when working with heavier materials.

Speed/Power Control

Control both speed and power with the computer and/or the control panel on the AP Lazer. It is a percentage-based system that allows for corner compensation when using the cut mode operation. Speed is controlled by a literal system rather than a less reliable percentage-based system. The speed can be set from .001 inches per second. This system of speed control allows for ultimate precision.


Vents out smoke, dust and fumes. The AP Lazer is equipped with a blower and a fitted aluminum flexible vent that attaches to the top of the machine.

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 impeccable accuracy. With proper lubrication and normal operational use the bearings should last a minimum of three years.

110v Operation

AP Lazer plugs directly into the common 110v electrical outlet.

Motor Control

The AP Lazer system utilizes 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.

Internal Cooling System

While most liquid cooled laser systems require an external chiller, AP Lazer Systems utilize a uniquely integrated, self contained cooling system.

Interface Software

The laser machine interface software works with the file types of numerous photo-editing and CAD software packages. (Including but not limited to: CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, Adobe Creative Suite, AutoCAD and other CAD software platforms.) The interface is compatible with Windows® XP/7/8/10 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.

Advanced Memory Controller

The standalone controller with 128MB of independent memory allows for processing and storage of large sized files. The controller allows for computer free operation once the file has been downloaded to the AP Lazer.

Red Dot Diode

The red dot diode provides a visual aid that assists in finding the starting position and correct positioning of the 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 or cut, 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 the condensing lens installed on the laser engraver. 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

Air assist integration provides protection to the condensing optics. It enhances the engraving and cutting performance by removing debris and restricting combustible gases from the engraving surface and reduces the chance of damage to your lens.

Operating Modes

The AP Lazer Systems allows for multiple modes of operation. Engrave (faster) mode will engrave bitmap images and/or vector files. Cut mode cuts or traces vector file formats.


The high quality rubber belts are ideal for prolonging the life of the stepper motor and pulley bearings by not applying a constant rigid torque on the components.

Accessories Included

Accessories shown below are included with all AP Lazer machine purchases. (Some packages differ based on each machine. Contact us for full details.)
