XM8 Series Bishop2 (the original Bishop has been renamed the DT Knight/50) has a 12x24 engraveable area, with side to side pass-thru but what sets this apart from anything else on the market is there is no base allowing for nearly unlimited thickness of materials. A first in the laser industry!
With the table installed there is a more than usable 13.75” depth, but for those thick products simply remove the table and there is now a 34+” depth, from lens assembly to the floor. Need additional depth, no problem, simply place the Bishop2 onto the optional support structure and the depth becomes a HUGE 4 feet (48”) or if a customer chooses to, can design or utilize their own support structure for as thick an item needed to engrave as necessary.
CheckMate Lasers had been asked many times in the past couple of years to build a machine to accommodate extremely thick materials, although we thought our King/Queen systems with their 21+" depth (the deepest in the laser industry) was sufficient, we've had requests for as deep as 43". Now CheckMate Lasers is the only laser company that can accommodate any height product without a problem.
The once deepest engraveable area in the laser industry of 21+” depth has now been superseded by the XM8 Series Bishop2 at 34.5” or more! For more info CLICK HERE.
