MQ4040 LITE2 CO2 laser machine - laser cutter and engraving machine

The MQ4040 LITE2 is a high-quality machine. The laser head used can easily be adjusted in height with it motorized work surface. In addition, this machine has a right-hand guide on both the left and the right, guaranteeing its robustness and reproducibility. Laser cutting or laser engraving is an ideal process for processing a large number of materials. The infrared laser melts or evaporates the material, allowing you to cut (high laser power) or engrave (low laser power). During the engraving, the laser will evaporate the top layer, causing the surface structure to change. A honeycomb bed is included as standard.


LITE2 PLUS CO2 laser machine - Working area 600 x 400mm! (new)

Larger work area 

MetaQuip launches the LITE2 PLUS. The tabletop CO2 laser machine is now available with a working area of: 400 x 400mm or 600 x 400mm. More surface to easily cut or engrave larger objects!

LITE2plus Desktop CO2 laser machine 60 x 40cm

High-quality laser technology.
New controller.

The LITE2 PLUS Comes with honeycomb bed, motorized work bed to easily set the correct focus height and with a new laser controller.



Bigger window.
Better view.

We enlarged the window and bent over the corner. This has significantly improved visibility in the laser machine. Both large and small people can look into the machine a lot easier and follow the laser process.

Improvements in the LITE2

The MetaQuip LITE2 CO2 Laser machine has the following improvements over the LITE1:

  • Completely new design. Table model.
  • Up to 2x higher engraving and cutting speeds.
  • Stem frame - more stable and easier to adjust.
  • Motorized work bed for fast and easy changing between materials.
  • Red point laser for easy positioning and checking of the laser assignment on the workpiece.
  • Heavier extraction. Maximum safety.

Suitable for home use, schools or start-ups

The MQ4040 LITE2 is perfectly suited for hobby, schools or start-ups. This is a full-fledged CO2 laser machine where beautiful pieces can be made. With a MQ4040 LITE2 you can perfectly show the process from digital design to realization.



Laser engraving

The MQ4040 LITE2 CO2 laser machine is perfectly suited for laser engraving of a large number of materials, such as wood, leather, textile, glass, mirror and anodised or painted metal materials and a large number of plastics.

Laser cutting

The MQ4040 LITE2 is also very suitable for lighter cutting (3-5mm thick material) of fabrics, wood leather, textiles and a large number of plastics such as acrylate. In most cases, MetaQuip recommends the 60W version if there are plans to cut with this machine.

Laser Power Acrylate / Plexiglass Textile / Leather Wood Marble
40W 3-5 mm Good results at low speeds 2-4 mm Too low power
60W 8-10 mm Good results 4-8 mm Too low power

Easy operation

The controller used on the MQ4040 LITE2 is the same as with the other CO2 laser machines. You can easily prepare a laser job on the fully graphic display and graphically follow the progress during cutting or engraving. This controller is very user-friendly, making the machine easy to use for (non-technical) beginners, but also for advanced users.

Work surface

The MQ4040 LITE2 has a work surface of 40 x 40 cm. The machine comes standard with a knife bed on which the material to be cut or engraved is placed and a honeycomb bed. A honeycomb bed supports the material better, this is especially useful when you cut flexible materials such as fabrics or regularly make small objects. These small objects remain on the honeycomb bed after cutting.

Easy-to-use laser software

You can prepare a laser job via the supplied laser software. You send digital designs to the laser machine and can control the laser machine with them. With this software you can work in multiple layers with separate settings in each layer, so that combined jobs with multiple engraving or cutting operations can be performed. This software is suitable for  Windows, MAC OSX and Linux  and available in several languages, including Dutch, English, French, etc. The supplied Dutch manual describes in detail how to operate the laser software and controller.

Laser cutting – draw or import yourself

For laser cutting, cutting drawings in vector format are used. In the laser software you can create a simple design yourself or import a vector file. These vector files come standard from more graphic programs such as Adobe Illustrator (ai format) or more technical programs such as AutoCAD or Fusion360.

Direct import of PDF vector files

The following vector formats are supported by the laser software:

  • .ai – Adobe Illustrator. The industry standard for vector drawing.
  • .pdf – Portable Document Format. Standardized file exchange.
  • .dxf – Drawing Exchange Format. Standardized export format of most mechanical design software
  • .svg – Scalable Vector Graphics. A format that is rapidly emerging and for which a lot of open source software is also available.

In addition, the following less commonly used vector files are also supported.

  • .hpgl
  • .plt
  • .rd

Quickly convert raster images to vector cutting files

With the laser software it is very easy to convert black and white (raster) images to vector files so that they can be used immediately for cutting.

Laser engraving – importing images

The laser software also allows you to import images for laser engraving. MetaQuip often also uses PhotoGrav software for more complex images, so that the conversion of images always runs perfectly without further pre- or post-processing. The laser software supports the following formats:

  • .bmp
  • .jpg
  • .jpeg
  • .png
  • .gif
  • .tga

Laser safety and CE certification

MetaQuip closed CO2 laser machines are laser class 1 products: safe under  all  circumstances. This is measured and recorded in measurement reports drawn up by an independent laser safety authority. A higher laser class is less safe.

Class 4 machines may only be used if additional protection and laser goggles are used. These types of machines work with high power invisible laser light which can cause burns, eye damage and even blindness for the operator of the machine, but also for bystanders.

Take laser safety and CE certification seriously when purchasing these types of laser machines and request laser safety reports and technical construction files from your laser machine supplier! 

The MQ4040 LITE2 complies with all applicable CE machine guidelines and laser safety standards. The MQ4040 LITE2 is a class 1 laser device which means that under normal use no one can be exposed to laser radiation. The moment the laser is opened, all lasers immediately switch off and the current laser job is interrupted. Safety first.
