High-Speed CO2 Galvo Laser Engraving Machine 

The MetaQuip High-Speed CO2 galvo laser engraving machine is intended to serially engrave organic materials such as leather, wood and plastics. The MetaQuip High-Speed CO2 galvo laser engraving machine has a long life, are very reliable and engrave a large number of especially organic materials with great precision.

Fast placement of laser engravings on wood, leather, plastic, etc.

The big advantage of a CO2 galvo engraving machine is that the engraving time is short. This CO2 galvo laser engraving machine is available as an open table model that is supplied completely complete. The great advantage of an open model is that you have maximum freedom to place workpieces easily and, above all, quickly and to remove them again after laser engraving. Ideal for engraving large production series.

CO2 galvo laser engraving machine

Engrave up to 5x faster

With a standard CO2 laser machine the head moves over the material. This is relatively slow, especially when engraving that is made up of very thin lines. An engraving with a standard CO2 laser machine can take roughly 5-25 minutes depending on the surface to be engraved.
With a CO2 galvo, the laser source is deflected using a moving XY mirror, without moving parts. As a result, high-speed CO2 galvo engraving machines have a longer lifespan, but most importantly: a much shorter engraving time per engraving. Think of 1-5 minutes per engraving. That is about 5 times faster than a standard CO2 laser.

Laser power & work surface

MetaQuip supplies the high-speed CO2 galvo laser engraving machine with laser powers of 30 or 60 Watt. Sufficient power for almost all CO2 engraving applications imaginable. With higher laser powers you can make a deeper engraving per engraving step. This machine comes with a lens that gives you a working surface of 150 x 150mm. With the larger working surface, the laser power is projected over a larger area, so that the laser power per unit area is lower. We are happy to help you choose the right power and work surface for your application.

XY table

The included XY table can be used to fix a stop on it and to align it accurately, so that every object is immediately right after placement. MetaQuip can help you to design and realize a tailor-made stop for your workpiece (s), so that each work piece is always well positioned.


This high-speed CO2 galvo laser engraving machine consists of a table cabinet in which full control and industrial computer are located. This controls the metal CO2 laser tube that is just in front of the laser head that is placed on the tripod. With this tripod the correct focus length can be set (the distance between the lens and the workpiece). The laser software is already installed on the supplied industrial computer.

In the laser head is an XY mirror that scans the surface with a high frequency. This XY mirror is completely sealed off from the outside world and is the only moving part in this machine. This guarantees the high reliability and long life of this machine.

Want to get a quote, demonstration or your own material?

Would you like to know whether a galvo CO2 engraving machine is suitable for engraving your material? With some simple tests, we can quickly determine together what the best possible result is.

High quality metal tube

High-speed CO2 galvo engraving machines use a metal tube. This is more expensive to purchase but has a number of advantages. For example, a metal tube has a much longer life, but it also has a smaller spot size compared to a glass tube. This allows the engravings to be tightened with more detail and precision.

Maintenance free

These machines are virtually maintenance free. In combination with the long service life and high engraving speed, these types of machines are extremely suitable for use in almost any working environment. Depending on the material to be engraved, when working with laser machines, toxic gases and small dust particles may be released. For health it is better not to inhale these. MetaQuip therefore supplies all its CO2 galvo laser engraving machines including industrial air extraction. In addition to preventing possible health problems, the extraction also prevents these dust particles from contaminating your fiber laser, which benefits the life of the machine.

Engraving on standard denim is done in about 5-10 seconds.

Easy to use laser software

Preparing a laser assignment is done via the included laser software. You send digital designs to the laser machine and you can control the laser machine. With this software you can work in multiple layers with separate settings in each layer, so that combined jobs with multiple engraving or cutting operations can be carried out. This software is suitable for Windows, MAC OSX and Linux and available in several languages including Dutch, English, French and so on. The supplied Dutch manual describes in detail how to operate the laser software and controller.

Applications & materials

A high-speed CO2 galvo laser engraving machine can be used for engraving non-metals in a large number of engraving applications, such as:

  • Textiles and clothing. Repaint patterns, logos and text permanently on denim.
  • Plastics & pharmaceutical packaging.
  • Glasses, wooden (wine) packaging & parts and other business gifts.
  • Ceramics, rubber products, nameplates.
  • Electronic components.
  • Belts, shoes, clothing.
  • ...

Materials that can be engraved with a galvo CO2 laser are all materials that can be processed with a CO2 laser, such as wood, leather, textile, glass, plastics (large number of non-metals). For a complete overview, go to the bill of materials ...

Laser safety and CE certification

The open CO2 galvo lasers are class 4 laser devices. This basically means that the operator and everyone in the same room is exposed to high power laser light.

For this additional protection measures must be taken, such as mandatory wearing of certified laser safety goggles to protect the eyes. MetaQuip only supplies laser safety glasses from renowned brands that meet European safety standards in all areas. However, this does not exclude that no one can be exposed to laser light. To this end, additional laser safety measures must also be taken for the environment in which the laser machine is placed.

Open laser machines by definition do not comply with the CE machine guidelines without these extra safety measures. MetaQuip can advise and support you in the implementation of additional laser safety measures required.

Include CO2 galvo laser engraving machine in your production line?

In collaboration with MetaQuip's process development partner, we have adapted the machine and software in such a way that MetaQuip's CO2 galvo engraving machines can easily be integrated into a production line. This makes it possible, for example, to put your engraving machine in a production line where the products or parts offered via a conveyor belt are fully automatically engraved. Automatic product supply and removal and fully automatic remote control and error message feedback.
