we offer you an opportunity to start a laser cutting/engravin
A quite inexpensive but still a very good choice is a laser engraver 2.1W or 3.5W, 5.6W, 8W, 8.5W, 10W Endurace DIY engraving machine
To do a laser engrave or a laser cut you do not need special knowledge or skills. Laser cutting and engraving are very simple. You run software: GRBL, mDraw, CNCC Laseraxe or ACAN to do nice engravings.
It is very easy to get started. Additionally, we tell in details how to operate the laser and engraver.

You can engrave wood, leather, stone, plastic, acrylic, glass, metal (even painted and anodized aluminum), strone.
As the process of engraving is automatic, you can draw a simple image or an interesting individual pattern for a customer, or offer a selection of ready image samples for engraving.
Thanks to the diode laser technology, many businesses already provide services for engraving and cutting using their own material or the material of the customer. The following materials have been successfully tested: paper, cardboard, plywood, wood, foil, plastic, acrylic, glass, leather, rubber, aluminum.
For aluminum you may use another technology, called electrolysis.
Safety precautions when working with the laser:
Lasers also give users other opportunities. By means of laser cutting you can create stencils for etching or welding. Thus, using a 3.5W (3500 mW) Endurance laser with a linear velocity of 3 cm/min., we were able to cut a stencil pattern on a PVC sample, 5 mm thick.
When laser cutting, provide forced removal of combustion products, and you will be able to cut the plywood up to 4 mm thick. Cut out stencils, make printed circuit boards, and etch aluminum. Your customers will be happy!
Endurance lasers can be mounted on any 3D printers and CNC machines, as well as on constructors, such as: a DIY machine, MakeBlock plotter XY 2.0 kit and others.
Gcode is the primary programming language for this kind of devices. Geeks assemble their own devices, using stepper motors (RepRap). The Endurance laser body has 4 threaded holes, so it can be easily mounted on any CNC device. We successfully install a laser to 3D printers (BFB3DTouch, Wanhao Duplicator i3, Prusa) and DIY constructors (e.g., MakeBlock).
