- PLH3D-6W laser head
- 2 lenses
Advantages of the PLH3D 6W:
- Simple installation in 3D printers and CNC machines
- No additional cooling required
- Driver integrated inside the unit
- Compatible with multiple accessories
- OEM customization available
- Quiet fan
The unit’s driver is integrated directly into the laser head. This greatly increases the maximum modulation frequency and allows longer cables to be used. The focus distance can be quickly set or changed via the lens adjuster accessory (sold separately). The integrated driver is fully covered to protect it from metal chips in a machine shop environment.
The laser head has one control. Input #1 accepts 0 - 5V for analog power modulation.
Small Size, Large Heat Sink
This compact 70mm (2.75”) laser head requires no additional cooling. The body functions as both a heat sink and guide to direct air from the fan to remove smoke.
- Automatic shutoff in the rare event that the unit should overheat, maintaining the laser’s lifetime.
- A Zener diode helps prevent a small transient from damaging the analog input.
- A Schottky diode protects the laser diode from reverse voltage and ESD damage.
Our PLH3D series work with many CNC and 3D printing machines including the models:
MakerBot Replicator1 (and its clones)
MakerBot Replicator 2 and 2X
RepRap – Melzi Board
RepRap – RAMPS1.4
RepRap – RUMBA
Ultimaker 1 & 2
Note that this list is continuously updated. Please contact us if you have any questions or feedback regarding compatibility.
Accessory for Smoke
The laser head allows engraving or cutting of materials such as wood, paper, leather, cardboard and some metals. For materials that generate smoke, we offer an optional nozzle that is attachable to the front of the unit via magnets built into the laser head (see accessories). Additionally, we offer a version of the product with a higher power fan for applications where more smoke is produced.
For 3D printer or CNC manufacturers and distributors and customers placing bulk orders, the PLH3D-series can be customized to all customers' needs. Customers' logos and other additional features can be added.
Besides the standard functionality, the small beam spot allows the possibility of using this product for rapid PCB prototyping. This is done by illuminating the copper layer of plates after a photosensitive paste is applied.
