"If I had to choose only one tool for my toolbox, it would be a laser."
Lewes, DE (PRWEB) November 22, 2016
Voccell, Inc., a Lewes, DE based manufacturer of high-end laser cutters, today announced pre-orders via Kickstarter and their website for their new professional-grade laser cutter. The DLS or Desktop Laser System brings professional quality output to the home user. The DLS can cut organic materials like wood, leather, shell and paper with a laser beam finer than the width of a human hair. It can mark or engrave materials like glass, metal and stone directly. Users can create intricate 3-Dimensional objects with incredible precision at the push of a button with software like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator or with the Auto-Trace feature, hand drawn images. The DLS is designed to be virtually maintenance free and reliable even when used for mass production in an industrial environment unlike many other laser cutters. The DLS is at home in a workshop, garage or business for hobbyists and business owners alike. During the 30 day crowdfunding campaign the DLS is available for $3499, a full $1500 less than the normal retail price.
The DLS is different than other laser cutters on the market. Many other lasers will pause, shut down or void your warranty when used in anything except an air conditioned room. Even then many must perform one operation at a time in order to prevent overheating. The DLS can be used in your garage, workshop or warehouse, in the middle of summer 24 hours a day 7 days a week at full output.
"If I had to choose only one tool for my toolbox, it would be a laser. There is nothing else like the precision, speed and ease of use for taking your idea and making it a reality," said Nathan Nguyen, Lead Sales for Voccell. "We created the only consumer friendly laser that has the same safety features and reliability as an industrial machine, in a small form factor so it can be used anywhere."
