GL.compact laser machine

The industrial laser microprocessing system GL.compact is designed for applications that require less high dynamics than a reliable positioning of the workpiece for further processing by scanner or spiral drilling optics.

The laser machine is characterized by a very compact design and high flexibility. Thanks to the use of state-of-the-art beam sources and the possibility to integrate all available hardware options, the complete spectrum of laser microprocessing can be served.

With GL.control you have the possibility to control all sub systems of the machine and coordinate them. The operator of the machine can program all of the tasks in one single user interface. The controlling software GL.control is basic equipment of the GL.compact.


The modular design of our GL.control software allows the machine control system to be expanded with a range of functions. Thus the user is able to adapt the software configuration to their requirements.
