Xenetech Laser Engraving Software
One option for powering Xenetech lasers is our standard-setting Xenetech Graphic Workstation™ software, included with every system. Developed and continually updated with the specific requests of professional engravers in mind, this Windows™-based application truly delivers, including these outstanding laser features:

  • 32 Bit Engraving Software
  • Network compatible: send a job to any Xenetech system on the local area network
  • Vector & raster engraving in the same job
  • 4 different points of origin to coordinate with home positions set at the laser system (X left-Y top, X center-Y center, X center-Y top, X center-Y left).
  • Bottom-up engraving and color-controlled power settings dramatically reduce residue impregnation in porous or tacky materials
  • Customizable rubber stamp and auto-seal mode with auto-reverse image
  • Rubber stamp mode allows for “shouldering” tapered cuts and basic 3-D engraving
  • 256 color/greyscale output
  • Set power, speed and engraving sequence by color
  • Data output compression
  • Enhanced throughput speed
  • Variable ASCII text input is used to create multiple or batch plate layouts.
  • Multi-speed job capabilities
  • Processes multiple power simultaneously on the same raster pass. This dramatically speeds throughput.
  • Runs multiple material thickness in a single job.
    (Unit will auto-focus for various thicknesses while engraving.)
  • Refocuses material to perform multiple pass vector cutting
  • BullseyeTM autofocus placement capabilities
  • Saves all power, speed, 3-D, focus, job comments and multi-pass settings with each job to be recalled in the future
