IRIS™ Camera Positioning System

Overhead cameras provide accurate drag-and-drop artwork placement.

What makes artwork placement with an Epilog Laser so easy?

It’s our IRIS™ Camera Positioning System that is revolutionizing the way you work with our laser machines. With our sophisticated technology, you can place your artwork for engraving and cutting more quickly and accurately than ever before. The included overhead cameras provide an accurate live view of any material you place on the laser’s work surface. This allows you to drag and drop your artwork directly onto your sheet material, part, or product, giving you greater control and faster turnaround times. In other words, it makes bringing your laser projects, products, and creations to life quick, easy, and more fun!

Aligning Your Laser Projects Is Easier Than Ever

What You See Is Where You Engrave

The IRIS Camera Positioning System increases accuracy when placing the artwork by providing a what you see is where you engrave experience. Instead of manually measuring distances or using trial-and-error techniques, the camera allows you to precisely position artwork and ensure accurate engravings and cuts every time. Our advanced camera features help reduce the number of mistakes made during production, resulting in less material waist, better quality products, increased production, and improved workflow efficiency overall.

3. Select Material Settings and Laser It!

Select your material from our preloaded material settings library or customize your laser settings (speed, power, frequency, etc.) for a unique material and laser engraving effect, then press Go at the laser and watch your laser go to work!

Time Is Money For Laser Businesses

Another benefit of having a camera positioning system is speedier turn-around times for your customers. The overhead cameras allow for faster placement of artwork for engraving compared to traditional methods, eliminating unnecessary steps and saving valuable time during low-volume production runs. This can significantly shorten overall project timelines by providing our customers with more precise control over how they lay out their artwork on substrates—reducing costs along the way as well.
