Designed for industrial and educational use, the robust GCC laser engravers-cutters are the product-of-choice in the United Kingdom with 8 out of every 10 technical training colleges and universities using a GCC product.
Available in two models, the Mercury III and Spirit LS, the laser engravers are capable of engraving and cutting an extensive range of materials such as metal, wood, glass, acrylic, leather and rubber.
GCC laser engravers-cutters are ideal for making prototypes of products, miniature architectural models, automotive parts, furniture parts, labels, tags, signage, jewellery design, name plates for parts or for engraving part numbers and logos directly on to components and tools.
The new GCC laser engravers-cutters have been added to the range of Denford routers and milling machines supplied by REA Foundation to both industry and education sectors.
Mercury III has a work area of 635mm x 458mm and its pass-through front and rear doors allow long pieces of material to be fed through the machine. The Spirit LS is slightly larger at 640mm x 460mm. Both machines have adjustable speed control with the Mercury reaching 42 IPS and the Spirit, 80 IPS.
