The laser is a high quality blue laser module for laser engraving.  The laser can cut soft materials as well, but the laser is designed for engraving, so cutting with this laser for extended periods of time will degrade the laser. 

 

It has a variable lense to set the focus.  The aluminium housing and forced air cooling ensures efficient cooling for optimal operation and long service life.  The intensity of the laser can be adjusted via the TTL/PWM signal.  Please see the table below for the materials that can be processed with this laser.

*Can cut MDF with multiple passes, but extended periods of cutting will degrade the laser.  Yellow MDF or Laser MDF is recommended rather than normal MDF.

**Only dark colours of Acrylic and Perspex

***Metal engraving spray, powder or tape required for laser marking on bare metal surface.

Please note:

  • Always wear laser protective goggles (Included with laser) when operating a laser.  This is not a toy, it is a powerful industrial tool.
  • The colour of the material being processed can have a major influence on the efficiency of the laser, for example transparent and white perspex cannot be processed, but black perspex can be processed.
  • Processing material with shiny surfaces like shiny metals can reflect the laser energy back into the laser which will damage the laser.
  • When cutting wood, blowing compressed air onto the laser focus point increases the efficiency of the laser dramatically.
