7 WATT LASER MODULE - looking for advice

Post by scubanimal »

Hello all,
I've ordered the 7 watt laser with the intent to use it to cut veneers, and hope to install and test it this weekend. I've heard that some lasers with lower wattage can cut typical 1/40" veneers just fine, so am expecting this 7 watt to really work well. I requested a recommended feed and speed to start with from support, but was told they did not have any insight. While the various species of wood will have some impact, using a typical thickness, has anyone used the NWA 7 watt laser and have fairly consistent results?
If so do you have a recommended feed, speed and number of passes ?

Any additional advice to get off on the right path?

Thank you very much,
Ian
