The xTool S1 20W is a powerful cutting/engraving diode laser machine equipped with a laser module comprising four 5W diode lasers focused on the same spot, which provides the incredible output laser power of 20W. A 10-mm cherry wood or an 8-mm dark opaque acrylic plate can be cut through in one pass.

The machine features a lightning-fast maximum speed of 600 mm/s yet providing high accuracy of both cutting and engraving operations. For better efficiency, the S1 boasts a durable construction featuring a sturdy rail structure for enhanced stability, leveraging the full potential of the high-power laser to deliver rapid movement over a bigger area.

As a new standard for accuracy, the xTool S1 presents an innovative Pin-point Positioning system that utilizes advanced encoders and algorithms to create a precise absolute coordinate layout, displaying the laser module’s position in real time within the software. This ensures a precise replication of the object’s frame, which surpasses camera-based positioning and is free from distortion. There are three ways to align multi-shape objects: Circular, Twin-point, and Polygonal. Apart from this, the S1 model supports positioning multiple objects of different shapes in batches, offering more productivity and flexibility.

One more smart feature of the xTool S1 is its intelligent autofocus system capable of multi-point focus acquisition and automatic 3D model generation. It dynamically adjusts the Z-axis focus during processing, ensuring a uniform engraving effect even for curved surfaces. Moreover, you can adjust focus with a single click in XCS software, no manual tightening or loosening screws is needed.

For a totally safe and comfortable user experience, the xTool S1 is engineered with a number of safety features starting with a fully enclosed design with the high-performance smoke exhaust system that ensures a cleaner and quieter workplace. The eye-friendly lid filters blue and IR lasers making for clear viewing without special goggles. Apart from this, processing halts to prevent laser leakage when the lid is opened. Further safety is achieved due to an emergency stop button and 5 flame sensors. You can also buy an optional smoke purifier or a special fire safety set for additional protection (please refer to the “Add-ons” section for more information).

There are a lot of possible applications for the S1 diode laser cutter and engraver limited only by your imagination.

Working area

The working area of 498 x 330 mm allows you to implement large-scale design projects or to engrave multiple smaller patterns at a time, which can be extremely helpful for small businesses.

The maximum workpiece height of 42 mm can be increased with the use of the optional riser base up to 133.5 mm.

In addition, thanks to the proprietary AutoPassthrough™ technology, the xTool S1 is able to process up to 3000 mm of material in one session. To achieve this, the machine comes with an optional automatic conveyor feeder that guarantees precise and easy management of larger projects.


Machine controls

On the back side of the machine, there is a power and a USB port as well as a power switch. On the right side of the front panel, you will find a start / stop button and a light status indicator. On the right panel, there is an emergency stop button. 

The machine can be connected to the PC using Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or USB.



The xTool S1 comes with the proprietary xTool Creative Space software. This free software is user-friendly, functional, and allows for firmware updates. xTool Creative Space is compatible with Windows, macOS, and iPadOS.

Those looking for enhanced functionality can use the third-party LightBurn engraving software which is more powerful and supports more file formats, such as AI, SVG, DXF, PDF, HPGL, and PLT for vector files and PNG, JPEG, BMP, TIFF, TGA, and GIF for raster images. LightBurn is a paid software but it offers a free trial period. It is compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Lightburn supports basic operations including focusing, framing, processing, and RA2 Pro. However, being a third-party software, it may not provide comprehensive support for all features and lacks functions such as laser module position acquisition, material area measurement, and curved surface engraving mode.
