CNC Meets Laser

Sam Coleman

This video was made in partnership with Onefinity.

In this video from Sam Coleman, we learn about how lasers work and what they can add to our workshops, which is ironic considering lasers work via subtractive manufacturing! See what we did there? You’ll learn about CO2 vs diode and fiber, as well as see the latest option from a partnership between Onefinity CNC and J Tech Photonics.  

Having 44 watts of laser power packed into a box small enough to easily mount on your existing spindle or router for your CNC machine is truly innovative and something to think about.If you have a small shop and are looking for a laser option that won’t even add a footprint of any kind to your space, keep reading. 

Laser Types

CO2 - Generally bigger in size, pricey, cuts & engraves wide range of materials

Fiber - Insanely fast, small work area, limited material capabilities, very pricey

Diode - Generally smaller in size, can be attached to a CNC, more affordable

What’s the right laser option for you? Take a look at your needs.  What is the size of your working space? What is your budget? What do you hope to achieve? Reviewing the chart below can help you get an idea of the line-up of diode lasers offered through Onefinity and their capabilities.  Once you narrow down your goals for having a laser, see which one fits your budget… because, spoiler alert, ALL of these options will fit your space!  

The all new 44 watt diode option may not fit everyone’s budget, but beggars can’t be choosers! The fact that it has been tested and verified to actually be able to mark bare metal is bonkers and flirts with the idea that it could be likened to a fiber laser in that regard. If the ability to do customization and having a space-saving option is what you’re looking for, you’re bound to find a good option from Jtech and Onefinity.
