The Avid CNC 15W Diode Laser System is the perfect complement to our spindle cutting systems, adding the ability to cut fine details as well as engrave materials before or after machining.
It is arguably the most versatile laser system on the CNC market. Boasting a real 15 watts of optical power as well as a novel design, this compact laser head can cut a wide range of wood-based materials, leather, textiles, plastics, and more, as well as engrave metals such as carbon steel and anodized aluminum.
Featuring an air-actuated Z-deployment system that mounts on either side of an existing PRO Z-axis, the laser can be moved down for cutting, then up and out of the way during spindle or plasma cutting operations.
To insure compatibility with your CNC control system, you will need to specify the following attributes of your control system:
- Router / Plasma: Plasma systems include a torch height control card that can interface with the laser controls. Router systems require a small separate breakout board to provide this interface.
- Current / Pre-2019: Controllers built prior to 2019 will require an updated CRP850-00E and CRP860-00E breakout board in order to work with laser. Contact us if you need assistance identifying the version of your controller.
