Epilog Legend Accessories

Zing Rotary Attachment

Rotary Attachments for Cylindrical Items

The Rotary Attachment allows you to engrave wine bottles, mugs, glasses, flashlights and more.

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 Legend 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

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.



Optional Lenses

In addition to the 2.0" lens, we offer special lenses for specific applications.

1.5" Lens: Highest-Resolution Engraving

Although the standard 2.0 inch lens provides amazing detail, our 1.5-inch lens assembly has been designed for the highest-resolution engraving and etching of extremely small fonts.


4.0" Lens: Cutting Thicker Materials and Inside Deep Areas

The 4.0 inch lens produces a focused beam over a longer vertical distance, which makes it ideal when engraving within a recessed area of a product, such as inside a bowl or plate. The lens is also used for cutting through very thick materials.




Epilog Mini Stand

A easy to use stand for moving your laser.

While the Helix comes with an included stand, the Mini 18 and Mini 24 are desktop units with an optional stand.



Vector Pin Table

Raise and support your cutting materials for better edge quality.

The Pin Table incorporates movable pins that can be placed anywhere along the table's grid of one inch (25.4 mm) spaced holes. The movable pins also allow the user to raise and support the cutting material in locations where the laser will not be cutting, providing a means of eliminating backside reflection. The table also allows you to place pins to support parts that would normally fall out of the cutting pattern. A handy removable surface plate makes the task of cleaning up small parts easy without removing the Pin Table.



Air Compressor

Blows a constant stream of air on the cutting area.

Epilog's optional Air Compressor is available to work with the included Air Assist features of the laser systems. Direct a constant stream of air to your cutting surface to remove heat and combustible gases from the work area.
