Vector Cutting Grid

Create better edge quality when laser cutting.

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.
