Worldwide Laser Software is a high-end laser control software that is richly featured and loaded with advanced capabilities like importation of 25 vector and 12 raster file formats, 26 finely tunable bar code formats including ID Matrix 2_D codes, precise vector hatch fill generation for graphics & true type fonts, password protections, tool path optimizer [optimizes vector sequence and eliminates unnecessary moves to insure fastest possible laser marking or cutting] and a large variety of user configurable features.

Worldwide Laser offers a software option called PLUS that includes the same advanced features set as the standard Worldwide Laser software with the addition of four [4] external axis control. This control permits laser marking or cutting around cylinders and over areas larger than the laser lens field. PLUS can be integrated with most motion systems including stepper motors or servo motor controls.

Worldwide Laser offers another software option called TOOLKIT which is a powerful MFC extension DLL that allows Worldwide Laser System Dvision Engineers to build custom laser marking solutions if you have custom needs that involve access to SQL servers, special reporting, or any other features contact us & let our engineers build the correct software solution for your needs.

The most current version of Worldwide Laser Software, SERVER, has been upgraded to include the following major features: Can be run on windows 2000, NT, or XP Improved & upgraded graphics importer that allows, amoung other things importation of .DXF & DWG directly from AutoCAD 2000. Front end programs written in VB which allows access to servers, data base reporting, special handler interfaces, ect. Many more new options

All versions of Worldwide Laser Software offer the following major functions.

User Interface

  • Standard windows menu system, application size and location are memorized between invocations
  • Dockable toolbars for common functions. Toolbar locations are memorized between invocations
  • Right click property access and power menus. Property access for parts programs, layers and objects
  • Multiple document and view interface
  • Cut, copy, insert, replace, duplicate and undo functions
  • Background layers allows for display of part images, job annotations and special operator instructions
  • User configurable multiple layer combinations views. Allows for viewing different aspects of a part with mark data and background
  • Zoom functions
  • Smart graphics handles allows for direct manipulation of the object itself, not just a bounding box
  • Anchor points
