Energy 8

Gravograph has launched Energy 8, an economical laser engraver. Energy 8 is a CO2 laser engraver designed for low-output marking needs in the workshop, store or office. Its compact size, low running cost and included software make it the most effective solution on the market in terms of its quality to price ratio.

Energy 8 is part of a range specifically designed by the company to meet market needs as closely as possible. The ergonomic functionalities of the LS1000 XP also feature in the brand's other solutions, namely: the front loading concept; user control of the laser via the interactive machine instrument panel; and integrated storage capabilities and automatic focus adjustment.

Its compact size of 775 x 725 x 450mm helps Energy 8 fit easily into a small workshop and makes it possible to perform immediate engraving operations. The customer can choose the material it wishes to mark from the extensive range offered by Gravotech.

Energy 8 is supplied as standard with GravoStyle Discovery, which offers both the security of reliable software and the flexibility of saved settings according to materials.
