I mounted this laser on my X-Carve CNC machine using a homemade bracket. It works flawlessly and I am extremely please with it. It functions as good as units costing 4-5 times as much and was simple to connect and start using. Thanks for making laser engraving quick and affordable.
I was gifted this laser module by my son. I have to admit it was somewhat of a challenge for me but I'm getting the hang of it. It is built very well and has some great features. In my situation, I've reached out to customer support and have been extremely satisfied with the response and information made available to me.
I have so far found this laser to be excellent. I was really keen to use it for cutting veneers which I am pleased to say it does brilliantly. I thoroughly recommend this product. I would also encourage people to use Lightburn software. It is very easy to use but also very powerfull. Works well with Gemnitus ProVer and does not need any export/import to a LaserGRBL package. Much less hassle than say Vcarve laser module which although has Vtransfer does not give you much control over GBRL settings.
Fulfillment of my order was very quick. The instructions were specific to software I don't use, but installation was pretty straightforward. This laser IS hot, so use the included glasses and appropriate caution. I would buy this again.
Best value in a low power laser that I've found. I mounted it to an aftermarket CNC machine and it works flawlessly. Fast and easy hookup and operation.
5.5 watts is a lot of power if you are attempting to engrave wood. Even at PWM of 45% and well focused it does a lot of burning (e.g. you get a fairly large spot). If you plan on doing some fine work on wood you might be happier with one of the 2.5w lasers. The PWM percentage versus the power output is NOT linear. So what we end up with doesn't come close to the resolution in wood one can get from the 2.5w. All considered though, the price performance of this laser is excellent. I recommend you consider purchasing both a 2.5 and this 5.5. Use the 5.5 when you don't need the resolution but want the feed rate that the higher power affords you. Use the 2.5 when you need very small print.
As expected, great value for the price !
Works great. No problems installing.
Unfortunately, I haven't received the product yet, but I'll give you feedback as soon as I try. But your help so far is 5 stars.
