PLH3D series laser heads in some applications can replace CO2 lasers. The high absorption of blue light allows for efficient work with large amounts of materials, despite the lower laser power. CNC lasers based on the blue laser diodes are cheaper and more convenient to use. Failures of the CO2 laser can also be more dangerous to users due to the high power of the laser beam and high voltages generated by the controller.
On the website Optlasersgrav.com, you will learn more about the blue laser head applications instead of CO2 lasers. Additionally, the site includes a list of materials that can be machined with blue laser heads.
