Woodworking - Cutting and Engraving Wood

Blue laser engraving can produce a detailed pattern with round edges as well as darken the color of the wood. Laser engraving can be used to engrave a logo or a photo, which can’t be done with milling bits. With PLH3D-6W, you can laser engrave wood and wood-based materials, including cork, chipboard, particleboard, alder, cherry, maple, MDF, basswood, balsa, veneers, medium-density-fiberboard and high-density-fiberboard.

Cutting Textiles and Thin Synthetic Materials

The high absorption of blue laser light for numerous materials enables fast cutting without damaging protection layers used in textile cutting. Blue laser cutting and engraving are suitable for diverse types of textiles including Cordura™, Alcantara, felt, 1080 denier nylon, jeans, short-staple fiber cotton, wool, tartan, fleece, white polyester, softshell, silk, lace and linen. High power density enables laser cutting textiles with carbon-reinforced yarn and nylon-reinforced yarn as well as white textiles. Many robust materials used in the production of tents, kites, and bags can be cut at 60 mm/s.

Product Features

 

Powered by Blue Laser Diodes

Unlike infrared light, blue light is more easily absorbed by numerous industrial materials. This directly translates to several advantages including reduced power consumption and more compact heat sinking.


Integrated Control Electronics

In many laser heads that have the diode connected to the diode’s driver via a long cable and the coupling is done with connectors. Long wires are characterized by substantial inductive effects. This results in delays of the diode’s response in relation to the diode’s driver and as extension it also results in blurred lines. Connectors are more prone to disconnections than coupling done via direct soldering. Disconnecting during laser processing can damage the laser head.

Features of PLH3 Compact Design

Long Lifetime

Opt Lasers laser heads are industry-level grade CNC machine tools. Mechanical parts are made from machined aluminium. Our products are designed with cooling optimization in mind. Investing in the highest quality equipment ensures the best performance and price.Life time compared to price

Lightweight Design Mounts to Nearly any CNC Machine

Featuring a lightweight, Aluminum body that makes the laser weight less than 370 g. As a typical CNC spindle weighs approximately 1.8 kg, CNC machines can operate it effortlessly.

Simple Integration

Can be set on nearly any CNC machine since it accepts both analog and PWM CNC signals.

Accessories

LaserDock (Included in the Kits)Speeds up your work and keeps your laser clean

An effective solution for both large and small CNC machines and 3D printers, this magnetic docking station allows the PLH3D-XT Series laser for engraving to be quickly attached or removed. This facilitates quick access for CNC milling or 3D printing. By protecting the laser head from plastic or wood dust from your printer or CNC mill, it can extend the lifetime of the engraving laser and reduce maintenance. It also allows you to take advantage of the entire working area of your 3D printer or CNC machine.

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle

PLH3D-CNC Adapter (Included in the Kits) - Easy connection to any CNC machine

Many types of CNC machines and 3D printers with different control voltage standards and levels available on the market may be used to control the PLH3D head. The PLH3D-CNC Adapter converts all these signals to the standard compatible with the PLH3D head. The PLH3D-CNC Adapter contains widely used industry-standard screw connectors. A dedicated desktop low-noise power supply unit assures compatibility and reliability as well as eliminates problems caused by using third-party power supplies. The general status (power, armed, laser working) may be checked at a glance by watching three LEDs.

PLH3D-CNC Adapter

Laser Safety Glasses (Included in the Kits) - Ensure the highest quality of protection

These laser glasses can help reduce the probability of light entering the eye from the diffusely reflected laser light. It is important to note that while these laser glasses may be helpful at adding an additional layer of safety for diffusely scattered light, the user should not depend on them to protect against the beam entering the eye, either directly or indirectly. It is necessary to take additional precautions when working with lasers, receive proper training on how to do so and not depend on equipment as an alternative to safe practices.

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle

Other accessories (Included in the Kits) - To make your Opt Lasers Kit plug & play

With these accessories, it is a plug & play kit. Height Reference - helps you set your working distance, power adapter with AC adapter to allow you to plug into all outlets (US, AU and Europe), wiring and screw set to connect everything together and mount to connect the machine.

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle

Blue Laser Safety Window (Compatible with all Blue Lasers) - Install as you need

These laser windows can help reduce the probability of light entering the user’s eye from a diffusely backscattered laser light. This product is rated at OD 6+ over the range of 190 to 540 nm, blocking deep ultraviolet to green including violet and blue light.

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle

High-Pressure Air Assist Nozzle (Compatible with XT-50 & XT-10 and XF+) - Speeds up laser engraving and cutting up to 6 times

Being compatible with the XT and XF+ Laser Head, the High-Pressure Air Nozzle is a priceless asset for laser cutting and engraving. Not only does it speed up cutting and engraving with laser by up to 6.5 times, but it also substantially improves the attained quality of the processed material. With the High-Pressure Air Nozzle your yield will have noticeably enhanced quality with uniform and well-defined features. Our High-Pressure Air Nozzle will also protect your optics from smoke and dust particles, extending the intervals between subsequent lens cleaning routines, and boost user safety.

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 - 480 nm in order to avoid reflected radiation.
  • Never point laser head at people or animals.
  • Do not touch the beam, it may cause burns or another injury.
  • 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.

I'm amazed!

I am a true beginner with lasers. Opt Lasers have made this very easy to learn. This PLH3d Laser was easy to install, and the results it produces surprised me. Very crisp clean lines. Would recommend.

The Best CNC Laser Upgrade out there.

I have had this laser add-on for the X-Carve on my machine for just over a year and I absolutely love it. The build quality is amazing. All of the parts are polished aluminum and they have a very professional look and feel to them. The magnetic docking station is a huge plus for this device. It allows you to just pull the laser head off of the machine when you want to use the CNC router. This prevents dust and vibration from reaching the laser head. Installation was easy and this thing just works! I have had no issues with it at all. As of the time of this review, I have engraved mostly onto wood but have also done some cutting of cardboard, leather and thin wood.
I published a YouTube video of the installation here: https://youtu.be/6VmWmFUXbRc
Take a look around the channel, there are a couple more videos of this laser in action. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

AMAZING PRODUCT!!!

This kit by Opt Lasers is hands down in a league of their own. The manufacturers give you more than what is required to get the job done. They go above and beyond to provide excellent customer service during the purchasing process. I also love the fact that I am able to change lenses which they provided two in my kit. I am going to be purchasing their U Spot lens soon. One additional mention is the ability to add air assist to the laser which other well know lasers can not do. I love my opt lasers kit and will be getting more from them in the future for another X-Carve or any other machines I may obtain.
