Thought that myself, there's quite a difference between safety standards in China compared to here; obviously it would need to be adequately shielded to prevent laser getting loose where undesirable but not really a biggie I think. It's a bit low powered for what I would want to use it for but the cost of one with a CO2 laser is well into 4 figures.
I know where you are coming from but as part of my job I program sheet metal using a cnc punch/laser so am aware and familiar with the do's and don'ts they are pretty safe when guarded and set up properly, not seen an incident of injury in their use since I've been using them.An interesting article here:http://www.thefabricator.com/article/lasercutting/laser-safety-in-the-industrial-workplace
Nice one DannyQuick Question or 2did you fit endstops and if so How.Also any chance you could do me a copy of the CD that came with yours (An ISO of it will do?Doug
very interesting, I've got the same milling machine as you know Danny, would be interested in knowing the costs/details if you would share/sell ?CheersPhilwww.makeitbuildit.co.uk
MalcThe approx cost you quoted is that for effectively a plug and play device (All be it Manual)?I am very interested but would probably need to be back end of January when I should get my introduction fee for getting Chris a job at our place?Doug
Doug,Each of these completed ready to run (plug n play) units cost us £150 in parts/materials each, plus machining time on the lathe and CNC Mill also the end of the blank ER16 collet spindle has a M10 fine thread cut for the bearing preload adjuster nut.I personally prefer this approach to a high speed VFR spindle which is the only other alternative currently available, the bonus is very long life/reliability just needing the odd drop of oil to bearings and possible occasional belt replacement.It is like a scaled down version of that fitted to my Seig KX3 CNC mill.
