All you need to know about laser cutting parameters with 5.5 (5500 mw) / 5.6 (5600 mw) watt diode laser

All you need to know about laser cutting parameters with 5.5 (5500 mw) / 5.6 (5600 mw) watt diode laser

Endurance made a few experiments with laser cutting and here we present the results of laser cutting using Endurance lasers with 5.6 watt power output.

 

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.

 

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