Laser cutting parameters for 5.6W laser

Laser cutting parameters for 5.6W laser

Endurance made a few experiments with laser cutting and here we present the results of laser cutting using Endurance lasers

This material is dedicated to 5.6W laser cutting and the parameters that are required is indicated the speed of engraving the number of passes and the power of the laser.

Experiment is done on an Endurance DIY engraving machine with installed of 5.6W diode lasers
