The wide range of materials to engrave includes organics, such as polymers, paper, fabric, leather, vulcanized rubber or wood, as well as glass and ceramics. The sub-system incorporates a sealed CO2 laser (available output powers of 180 W, 250 W, and 450 W), with a choice of scanning and beam delivery optics. The product combines a scanner head, laser power, and beam quality, as well as control software. The company’s Starflex software enables the Powerline C to operate while also providing sophisticated process options. For example, a graphical user interface enables straightforward layout of cutting or marking paths, assignment of laser parameters, laser triggering (including offsets), and display of workload or process time.

The sub-system is housed in a 19-inch rack mount, uses a regular interface for network connections under Windows 10, and communicates using CAN network technology. Coherent premiered the product at the Labelexpo Europe 2019 and Coiltech 2019 fairs.
