You will need a water pump and chiller or radiator set up the head will have to stay inline with everything to work. So it will need to stay on the 2 axis table.

I can't use this type of lasers manually(with my own hands, grabbing the laser head) right?
No absolutely not. Too many things can go wrong. (High voltage, reflections, broken glass)
To get a decent cut, you need a power feed of some type or CNC XY table.

you will have no problems cutting 3mm plastic with a co2 laser.

i recently built a 60W co2 laser cnc machine and it's plenty of power. just beware that cutting certain types of plastic releases toxic fumes.


Hi, I work for a company that produces plastic parts and we're trying to find a laser that we can use to manually cut through plastic (PS e ABS are the types of plastic).

We don't want pre-fabricated machines, we want to adapt a laser on a working table we have.

I don't know if any of you can help, but the info I'd want is if it's viable to do it and maybe point me on a direction of where would I find such parts/components.

Thanks

hi,
Yes laser is used to cut plastic but for this you should choose a high bandwidth laser beam.
Thank you for sharing the detail information about laser and all its types and wavelength. It is very useful for me also. Thank you once again.
