The Stinger Raster Engine laser control module unveiled by New Age Imagers LLC enables laser manufacturers to use Harlequin raster image processing (RIP) software to control a laser engraver. It is suitable for use in computer-to-plate and portrait engraving applications. The system comprises a control module and an RIP interface with input/output ports to control all peripherals. An engineering development kit is available for purchase. The engine is designed to move the large raster image data sets directly, yielding precise pixel placement on the media.
