Baton Rouge, La. –Xenetech has developed a way to set the desired engraving area from the laser engraving table with the new “Point and Engrave” feature. The boundaries of this area are instantly communicated back to the engraving application software which automatically resizes and redraws the plate on the computer screen. Upon output, the plate contents are engraved in the exact area you previously selected on the laser engraving table.

This new feature is a FREE update for XLT and XLE Xenetech laser owners and is available on the Xenetech website at Users should download and install the latest Viper Communication Suite (VCS) and XGW-32 software.

“Point and Engrave” will allow users to eliminate the time it takes to measure and mathematically determine the location of the engraving. Users will significantly reduce dry runs and engraving location errors by easily placing the engraving in the desired location on plaques, panels, serial number tags, gift items, signs, and the like. By jogging the laser diode pointer to set two or four corner points of the desired engraving area, the area is instantly ready to engrave. In addition, a new “bounding box” feature is included which traces the outside of the engraving area with the diode pointer prior to engraving, if desired.

“Engravers with rotary systems have been using these features in the jewelry and gift industry with great success for years,” stated John Lundberg, Vice President of Research and Development for Xenetech. “There are tremendous cost and time savings opportunities for laser owners in using Point and Engrave. We’re happy to be the first to bring this to the laser engraving industry. This will open new opportunities, reduce operator costs, and significantly increase the ease of use of the laser engraver,” continued Lundberg.

Xenetech develops and manufactures a full line of computerized rotary engraving systems, laser engraving systems, and professional engraving software for the recognition, sign, rubber stamp, jewelry, gift, and industrial marking industries. Established in 1986, the company is based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and maintains a global distribution network.
