Upgraded laser! Now 60W

We’ve had an EPILOG 35W laser for almost exactly 5 years. It’s been a wonderful part of our company, we launched a laser etching business, open-source’d the business model (many companies sprung up) we worked with makers to help them get their business/hackerspaces going and we use the laser every day to make enclosures and products for customers. But after 5 years the laser eventually loses power so we replaced it with a 60W version over the weekend. We upgraded it ourselves, the are 3 pegs that needed to be removed to make room for the monster laser and 2 power supplies are needed. Then we needed to calibrate it. It’s about 3 times faster, we love it.

Special thanks to Brian and Joe at EPILOG for set up help (And Ryan our laser rep). Pictured above, the 35W laser that got us here – it will be sent back to EPILOG and recycled. Good bye old friend.
