This is a high power (5 W) engraving laser head with professional driver.

Its aluminium body assures proper heat transfer to other metal parts. The diameter of the laser head is 43mm which make it easy to mount on many CNC spindle holders. It is also possible to buy additional aluminium holder which can be mount on moving part of the machine.

The laser head allows to cut or engrave materials such as wood, paper, leather, cardstock and many other. Thanks to full analog modulation it is possible to engrave in shades of grey or change the output power during turns. High speed modulation (up to 100 kHz) allows to use high movement speed during engraving even complicated patterns.

Module is using brand new NUBM44 450nm diode (capable of 6W).

Modulation inputs can be used as TTL inputs with its logic levels of 0V and 5V or as an analog input. Analog modulation means that by using 2,5 V on ANG input you get 50% output power, analogically by using 4 V you get 80% output power, etc.

 

This unit can work with almost any type of CNC machine, for example:

CNC Shark 
GeckoDrive 540
MYDIYCNC
Openbuilds – C Beam/OX
Shapeoko 2
Shapeoko 3
Stepcraft
X-Carve Upgrade
X Controller
Zen Toolworks





Balsa 10mm: 300mm/min 5W 10 passes (1 pass for each mm).



Vinyl 2mm: 100mm/mi 5W 1 pass (the smoke must be removed quickly).



Red Plexyglass 3mm: 100 mm/min 4 passes (no smoke)



Other speeds and materials:
Wood 3mm: 200mm/mim 5W 3 passes (1 pass for each mm)
InchJet Photographic paper: 400mm/min 5W 1 pass
Paper: 600mm/min 2W


Recommendations and requirements

Caution:

Remember that it is not a toy.

Laser radiation is dangerous even when scattered or reflected from any surface.
Always use proper protection laser filter on your CNC machine dedicated to 430 - 480nm in order to avoid reflected radiation.
Never point laser head at people or animals.
Do not touch the beam, it may cause burns.
Do not stare at the beam or the beam spot while the material is being cut.
Laser radiation - Avoid eye or skin exposure to direct or scattered radiation. 
Class 4 laser product.



Air flow is very important during the engraving process since it is blowing out dark smoke which can cause optical obstacle for a laser beam.

Recommended power supply: 7,5V 5A.

Protection

The analog input is protected by a 5V1 Zener diode on occasion there appears the voltage higher than 5V. Despite everything, this input should not be used with higher voltages.

The output of the driver is protected by Shottky diode which doesn't allow the reverse voltage to appear.
