Accessories for the Zing Laser Series
Rotary Attachments for Cylindrical Items
Introducing the Zing 24 Laser Rotary Attachment! Now you can engrave wine bottles, mugs, glasses, flashlights or any other cylindrical item up to 5.25″ (133.4 mm) in diameter on the Epilog Zing Laser.
So intuitive and easy to use, you can switch from one glass to the next in seconds – without even removing the attachment from the engraver! In addition, our proprietary design provides accurate image scaling, so there’s no need to input diameter or circumference calculations.
Setup is as easy as placing your product on the Rotary Attachment, raising or lowering the scissor lift to level the engraving area, and printing to the laser!
*The Rotary Attachment is not available for the Zing 16.*
PhotoLaser Plus Software
PhotoLaser Plus takes photo engraving with your Epilog Zing Starter Series laser to the next level by easily processing photos for engraving on all types of materials.
Are you looking for a system that engraves outstanding photographs? How about a system that engraves photos in a consistent, predictable way for your customers?
Epilog Laser has partnered with CADLink to bring you the industry’s best photo processing software: PhotoLaser Plus. The easy-to-use software interface and powerful photo processing tools allow you to create the highest-quality photo engravings in the industry.
Zing Laser Cutting Grid Insert
The Vector Cutting Grid on the Epilog Zing laser is used to lift materials being cut above the work surface. This allows the laser beam to pass cleanly through the material you are cutting and dramatically reduces underside reflections.
The air space below the vector grid is connected to the exhaust, so smoke is removed not only from the top side of the material but also from the underside.
