Features of the Zing Laser Series
The High-Quality Features and Components That Make Up the Epilog Zing Starter Series: Features that work together to provide you with great engraving and cutting quality.
High-Speed Stepper Motors
The Zing's high-speed stepper motors provide high-resolution engraving and cutting quality. With the Zing you'll see the high-quality engraving for which Epilog is famous.
All Epilog Laser systems are proudly designed, engineered, and manufactured in our headquarters in Golden, CO, USA.
Long-Life Lenses Rated to 500 Watts
Lenses rated to 500 watts can last the entire life of the system, saving you time and money.
Air Assist Curtain
Remove heat and combustible gases from the surface of the material as you cut.
Movable Home Position
Move and set your home position to any point on the engraving table - you're not limited to the upper left corner.
Easily create rubber stamps with adjustable shoulders, widening and fences.
Visible Red Dot Pointer
The Zing's Red Dot Pointer provides a visible laser beam for setting up projects and to see exactly where the laser will fire. Project layout has never been easier!
Laser Dashboard™ Printer Driver
User-friendly print driver allows you to control all of the laser's features from one interface.
3D Engraving Capabilities
The 3D mode adjust the power applied to the material based on the grayscale in the artwork, creating stunning 3D designs.
True Ethernet Networking Capabilities
All Epilog Zing laser systems come standard with a high-speed, 10 Base T-Ethernet connection as well as USB.
Raster/Vector Color Mapping
Easily map different speed and power settings to different colors in your file in both engraving and cutting modes.
CO2 Waveguide Laser Tubes by Epilog
All-metal tube design provides higher beam quality and longer life with low recharge costs.
Upgrade to the Epilog Zing 24 for even more features:
Higher Resolution Standard Optics
No additional, expensive lens packages needed for the highest resolution engraving with our Radiance™ Optics.
Laser Head Parking
Park the laser head out of the way, providing you with easier access to the entire table.
Easy-Access, Drop-Down Door
Front access door for easy access to the Epilog Zing 24 laser system.
Power Choices up to 60 Watts
Choose your power level from 30, 40, 50 or 60 watts for even more speed when engraving.
Rotary Attachments for Cylindrical Items
The Rotary Attachment allows you to engrave wine bottles, mugs, glasses, flashlights and more.
Introducing the Zing 24 Laser Rotary Attachment! Now you can engrave wine bottles, mugs, glasses, flashlights or any other cylindrical item up to 5.25" (133.4 mm) in diameter on the Epilog Zing Laser.
So intuitive and easy to use, you can switch from one glass to the next in seconds - without even removing the attachment from the engraver! In addition, our proprietary design provides accurate image scaling, so there's no need to input diameter or circumference calculations.
Setup is as easy as placing your product on the Rotary Attachment, raising or lowering the scissor lift to level the engraving area, and printing to the laser!
*The Rotary Attachment is not available for the Zing 16.*
PhotoLaser Plus Software
Photo processing software that optimizes your photographs for engraving on a variety of materials.
PhotoLaser Plus takes photo engraving with your Epilog Zing Starter Series laser to the next level by easily processing photos for engraving on all types of materials.
Are you looking for a system that engraves outstanding photographs? How about a system that engraves photos in a consistent, predictable way for your customers?
Epilog Laser has partnered with CADLink to bring you the industry’s best photo processing software: PhotoLaser Plus. The easy-to-use software interface and powerful photo processing tools allow you to create the highest-quality photo engravings in the industry.
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.
Epilog Zing Laser Series Models
Two models to choose from to meet your needs.
Epilog Zing 16 Laser: The entry-level model in our laser product line, the Epilog Zing 16 provides a 16" x 12" work area, but with the highest-quality engraving. The small format, low cost, high quality laser system by Epilog Laser. There is no skimping here - all metal chassis, high-end components, and the engraving quality that Epilog Laser is known for. All of this, and Made in the USA too!
Epilog Zing 24 Laser: Move up to the Epilog Zing 24 for a larger work area (24" x 12") that holds most standard engraving stock material. A larger work area and more features make this laser an affordable choice for those needing more features than an entry-level machine. With a large 24" x 12" (610 x 305 mm) work area, you'll be able to easily fit the most common size for engraveable materials, and power choices of up to 60 watts means you'll be able to cut through thicker materials and engrave at higher speeds. The Epilog Zing 16 laser system is a powerful choice in entry-level laser systems.
