GL.machine software options




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. This approach supports the intuitive operation of the GL.evo and GL.compact thus decreasing the set up time and resulting in a saving in processing time. The input is either conventional via a keyboard with a mouse or via a touch-screen display.





Laser micro machine Software Modul GL.status

The status module shows you the current status of the machine. The current axes positions and the condition of the laser are displaned here. To gain an overview of the most important information of the machine a reduced form of the GL.status window is shown in every GL module.

With the NC-module you are able to edit G-Code programs or to import those from CAD-CAM-systems. Particular properties of the module are:

  • tab program windows enable you to open multiple windows
  • splitting the program window
  • control of the laser with NC-orders
  • auto-complete
  • dynamical reading of coordinate data
  • font size and background colour changeable
  • highlighting of NC orders, operands and and brackets, automatic indentation of function blocks
  • macro functionality (frequently used NC code can be defined as a macro and called up in various NC projects)
  • calling up processing programs of other modules (GL.designer 2D, GLdesigner 3D,, GL.topo)



Laser micro machine Software Modul GL.designer2D

In this graphical user interface you have the possibility to create 2D-geometries quickly and easily. The preferences of this module are:

  • generation of 2D geometries (line, rectangle, circle, ellipse, ...)
  • exhibition of the created geometries in the display window
  • insertion of user defined scan fields in the machining area
  • combination of axis and scanner machining within the same operation
  • allocation of individual parameters to each geometry
  • creating of lettering
  • geometrical operations (hatching, repetition, mirroring, offset, duplication)
  • import function for the following formats: Drawing Interchange File Format (DXF), Scalable vector graphics (SVG), Adobe Illustrator (AI), Excellon coordinates
  • creation of programs for one-dimensional and two-dimensional laser turning processes
  • insert of lead in and lead out paths and micro junctions of cutting geometries
  • automatic rounding of corners
  • duplicate function for simple parameter determination

Several programs from different GL.modules can be processed one after the other. Control of extended machine functions:

  • opening of cabin door
  • switching on/off suction
  • switching vacuum on/off
  • switching the laser diode off
  • set the component zero point




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.
