This is a powerful laser cutter. Its CO2 tube can generate a 130 W laser beam. If focused correctly, the beam can cut through ¾" plywood on a single pass. The 130W of cutting power is just right for wood cutting, as more powerful lasers will ignite the wooden workpieces. See More
Initially, the CO2 laser tube of the machine is cooled with the aid of an included water pump. However, this system has a problem, since water in a reservoir heats up quickly, reducing the efficiency of the cooling system. Adding a chiller to the loop ensures that the water is 'chilled' before entering the CO2 laser tube, thus, enhancing the cooling performance. See More
This laser cutter is capable of cutting cylindrical shaped objects. The only thing required to do it is getting a $219.99 router rotary attachment. It is entirely compatible with all the CNCShop laser cutters and engravers and the software is prepared to use this function. This accessory can be used for operations such as cutting or engraving pipes, glasses, and bottles. See More
This 45W laser cutter is, in fact, more powerful than the overwhelming majority of 45W CO2 laser cutters available in the market. The thing is that Glowforge developed their own CO2 laser tube. The given tube is extremely efficient due to its 'Mode 0' design (it provides greater power density). See More
