I am always interested in different machines folks have in their shops.
I ran across this one, but cannot tell by the label as to who makes it... or if its a kit.
Can anyone guess the make, model & brand of this machine?

Is that granite on top of that steel frame? That thing is beefy lol. My fiber cutter has a solid granite base, about 12,000 lbs worth. Not sure of the manufacturer but I don't think it's a kit.

2W average power at 1064 nm ???

Same wavelength as a fiber laser, but it's driven by a crystal laser similar to a YAG (neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet)
only it's a YVO (neodymium-doped Yttrium Ortho-Vanadate) (took me a while to find that on google ;) )

My guess is it's a very expensive and very efficient laser, to be sure :)

Clearly that is the portable table top model. (it is sitting on a table after all) They must use it at craft fairs for pet tags and key labels and stuff.

<grin>

Looks like the webmaster probably snagged the image from northeastern.edu.
I could be wrong, but I can't believe that a small 1 man shop has one of those.
