PC Specification


Which PC do I need to run my CTR laser machine?

CTR laser machines all require a PC to drive them. We supply the software and software dongle as standard, but you need to allocate a PC for the laser machine.

Whilst a relatively low specification of PC is adequate for running the laser machine, if there are other applications, software or services using significant processing power whilst the laser machine is running, this may cause disruption to the laser cutting and/or engraving process.


The PC required for running the laser should have a minimum specification of:

PC Type Tower PC recommended.
Laptop or slimline PC acceptable.
Processor Pentium 4

Minimum 500MB
Recommended 1GB

Hard Disk 40 GB
Display 1024 x 768
256 colours
Expansion 2 USB 2.0 ports
Operating System

Windows XP
Windows 7
Windows 8.1

Please contact us for details or if you are not sure that your PC will be compatible.

If you have already had a written quotation from CTR for a laser machine, the PC specification for your specific machine will be noted on the same document.
