About laser driver & laser control board


Laser driver is one of the most important component in the laser module. Laser driver controls the voltage and the current that goes to the laser diode itself. It is important so that the laser driver sets and keeps the voltage and the current stable. It keeps the laser diode safe.

We add Zener diode as an additional laser diode protection.

TTL wire / wires are also added to the laser driver. With TTL (3.5-12V range) you may change laser power (duty ratio). For 8 watt we make our own custom based laser driver.

All Endurance drivers / laser control boards are very reliable and been tested before shipment.

Everything that you need to know about Endurance accessories.

Goggles
always wear red or green goggles when you operate the laser. Remember Endurance lasers are class 4 item and must never be aimed in any live specie.
G2 lens

I’ve bought this laser in

I’ve bought this laser in addition to my CNC machine, in order to cut wood without having the noise of a rotating spindle, and to have more precision as mill bits are fragile under 1 mm. The 8 Watt laser does exactly what I want and is easy to install next to the existing spindle. Despite a small technical issue where the TTL wire was broken on the PCB, the laser performs very well.

8W laser for DIY SLS

8W laser for DIY SLS (laser sintering) project

I recently built an in house DIY project which was an SLS (laser sintering) 3D printer to fuse gray/black nylon powder, layer by layer to make some strong mechanical products. The 8W laser from Endurance worked out to be an ideal solution for speed and stable power. The high beam power saved us from having to deal with complicated ambient heaters to make the project a success. George provided excellent support to get it to work. Thanks.

Hey Guys,A quick review for

Hey Guys,

A quick review for on on my time with the 8W laser. I’ve been using it on an MPCNC with a Rambo control board. So far its has worked really well, I’ve mainly used it for picture engraving. the dot burn size I’ve been achieving in MDF and pine has been <0.1 and images at 256 pixel resolution come out with really surprising quality. My main use for this laser was intended to be for cutting ply up to 5mm and acrylic. I've just finished the air assist for it and intend to start on some of the cutting projects soon. The laser has been very stable on jobs that have been at times a few hours in burn time. George has been very helpful in answering questions that have come up. I'd recommend this laser if you are considering it.

Enjoy,
Mike

If you are looking for

If you are looking for a powerful and affordable laser look no more!

I did my research for a while and I couldn’t find a better deal. I had my laser for over a year and it works just as advertised.

For any newbies the laser works great with EleksMaker boards, DXF’s from inkscape and I use T2 laser for the gcode.

The Endurance 8W Laser attachment

The Endurance 8W Laser attachment is a great addition for your CNC engraving machine. It will outperform your expectations due to it’s high quality engineering and manufacturing. George is very knowledgeable and will help you in any way possible with the setup and operation with any of his excellent product line. Your creativity is endless when you add laser engraving to your repertoire.

Zach Barnett

Since a couple of month

Since a couple of month I do use the 8W laser (Endurance) and I am satisfied with this product. It engraves any type of wood or other materials and is easy to use for cutting MDF up to 3 or 4 mm. I am using the laser on a Stepcraft CNC machine and made a holder for mounting onto the CNC by 3D printing it myself. I am using the 8Watt laser mostly for cutting wood and cardboard up to 2.5 mm and am happy that I made the decision to buy this machine. Thanks George 😉

Ben Verheijden

I recently decided to experiment

I recently decided to experiment with laser engraving and cut using my 3D printer (a cheaper but valid Anet A8, mounted on P3Steel frame) so the 8W Endurance laser has been my choice.

I met since the beginning several problems to understand how to connect and run it to my Anet due to my ignorance on the matter but Endurance (George) has been very kind & patient.

He also prepared a video tutorial using the Anet main board (see how to connect 8,5 watt Endurance laser to a 3D printer) and He was present during the weekend times supporting me everytime 🙂
TAKE CARE FOLKS, this laser is extremely powerful and according to my measurements, it is nearly 9W.

I’ve purchased also the MO1 driver pcb (necessary for my equipment configuration) and the G2 lens.

Next steps are to learn about Endurance Laser plugin for InkScape and of course, experiment with engraving and cutting on different materials.
I strongly recommend Endurance Lasers!

Cheers, Paolo

The laser does not work
Please, check the power adapter’s (voltage & current) performance. Connect the TTL wire to the 12V+ to test if the laser is working. It should work full power. Watch this video.
The laser works full power but the laser power cannot be changed
Please check the g-code parameters (S / L) used for the pin to change the power. Either your PWM does not change the duty ratio or the contact of any of the laser connectors (if you run without TTL) is broken. Check with the voltmeter and ammeter if the voltage on this pin changes. Watch a video about TTL signal. Arduino with TTL.
I did everything as described but the laser does not work
We need to see a detailed photo and video of what you have done to help you with further steps.
Sometimes 13N10 or LM338 die and need to be replaced. We will guide you how to do that.
Endurance MO1 PCB does not work
The Endurance MO1 PCB is a quite a simple circuit and works pretty stable, however, there is a simple way to check it out. (described on this page + video guidance)
How do I find a proper pin to connect the laser?
We provide an ultimate guidance and tutorials. The laser is usually connected to the fan output on 3D printers or spindle output on CNC machines or can be connected to any other pin that is controllable, such as: D11 on the Arduino Nano. Detailed pinouts you may find here.
The laser lost its power.
The probability that this might happen is 5%. It might happen due to overheating. Avoid the laser diode and laser control board overheating. Check the temperature of the heatsink or laser driver. They must not be VERY hot (if you can touch these elements and hold on – it means that the temperature is less than 70C). If the temperature rises too high we can guide you how to reduce the voltage going to the laser diode and causing the loss of power.
I am trying to cut 3-5mm plywood using the laser, however I still did not manage to cut it with a single pass. Please assist
0. use a G-2 lens for laser cutting.
1. setup a perfect focus on a G-2 lens (make sure that focal range is something like 4-8 mm)
2. make sure that a plywood is very dry (you may use a 3D printer bed to warm it up)
3. speed parameters should be 50-150 in your g-code
4. make sure that the plywood is not specially treated with anti-inflammable materials
5. make sure that the laser runs full power and you have enough power that goes to the laser
6. make sure that the lens is clean and has no dust on it.

All Endurance lasers are class 4 lasers.

Our mission. Our goal. Our philosophy.

Mission

Our mission is to build and offer the best laser attachments for 3D printer and CNC machine enthusiasts and makers by providing an ultimate customer support and the most advanced technical solution.

Goal

Our goal is to make laser technology affordable, easy to use and practical by developing more solutions which will meet the market expectation.

Philosophy

We believe that lasers may be used not only in the industrial sector but also in every home and can be useful for anyone. The combination of a laser and a 3D printer or CNC machine allows making absolutely incredible things which can personalize any item. Our powerful lasers will allow creating things with one’s own hands as easy as it has never been in the past. Making new things for the home and business will save a lot of time and money in the future. Laser technologies are very much undervalued and underestimated due to low public awareness. We help to explain and expand the abilities of lasers by making different experiments and video footages that will inspire more and more people to think, create and explore.
