FAQ’s

Common Questions

Many different types of business use µMeta but predominantly general engineering, job shops, general engravers and trophy suppliers are among our most frequent customers for µMeta.

µMeta incorporates our own, highly anticipated, 30w or 60w MOPA laser.

The access panel of µMeta allows a full 180 degree access to the work area. When the interlock override block is removed, the door will remain up, allowing operation in Class 4 mode. In Class 4 mode, you must take appropriate action to protect your eyes and lock down your workspace, please contact us for details.

µMeta will work ‘out-of-the-box’ and requires no special installation

Absolutely Yes! From a health and safety perspective training by a qualified/authorised Lotus technician is mandatory. From a practical perspective professional level training will help you maximise throughput and output quality and minimise errors and maintenance. Ideally, training should be at site but if this is impractical we offer training via webcam.

µMeta must be placed upon an engineering grade bench or other similar type of strong and stable platform. A form of fume extraction is mandatory, the performance of which will be determined by the core application. A source of clean/dry air is required to drive the pneumatic access panel and a PC is required for the control software.

We have installed hundreds of these machines and to date we have a near to zero failure rate for any of the key µMeta.

µMeta requires no significant maintenance other than general, periodic cleaning. Over time some adjustment may be required to the pneumatic and mechanical elements and if necessary these elements should only be adjusted by a qualified Lotus technician.

µMeta is designed and manufactured to withstand industrial or heavy commercial use and has no consumable parts

The standard warranty for µMeta is 3 years on a parts replacement basis; this includes the laser source no matter what the level of use. This warranty can be extended at extra cost by an additional +3 years. T&C apply.

No; µMeta uses the same software as even our most advanced models.

Specifications

µMeta in Detail

Designed, assembled, configured and tested in the UK to ISO9001 (2015), CE and RoHSII regulations, µMeta is one of if not the most feature enriched and functional 1µm fiber laser marking workstations on the market today.

We choose very high grade components and really do take our time to build this model, which is reflected by the proven track record of near zero faults in the field across a large number of units installed. At this price point we feel that at time of publishing there really is no other system on the market to compete with µMeta on a like for like basis…

Conclusion

uMeta Laser Engraver.

µMeta has nearly all of the same features as our flagship Meta-C workstation but at a much lower cost.

µMeta benefits from a hands-free automated access panel that is pneumatically powered, resulting in minimal noise and a long working life. The speed of the access panel can significantly reduce job times. To improve its ease of use, µMeta also allows 180° access to the work area.

µMeta is designed and built in the UK and utilises the most powerful software on the market. The software can be used to control the Z axis, allowing fast job set-up and job recall. Due to intelligent software, µMeta can mark objects at multiple heights in a single job. The software that comes with µMeta is very easy to use and is packed with useful features to help the user mark and engrave efficiently.

The lser marking machine has a strong aluminium main frame and a strong T-slot table which is CNC cut from a block of aluminium. It can also be configured to accept a high quality rotary drive system to enable circumferential marking.
