    Sounds good!

    The disc rotary is pretty great! I think a co2 and the disk rotary would work very well for the powder coat, pending the laser wattage it should burn through them very fast. Once I am...

    Hi Gloria,

    I was just curious if they were as wonderful as advertised, and what their service and software was like.

    Did you get their 3d software? What power did you go with?

    Thanks!

    Also, here is a link to it if it helps...

    Direct Diode Laser

    Never heard of a direct Diode before, but in my research I found a company out of California selling them. Would it be better to buy this over a fiber/galvo? Machine is a 600 watt, not sure how that...

    A Kern will run this all day long, and it has for us. Only downside I have seen from running metal on our machine is that the sheets get very heavy and impossible to load alone. I wished I had a...

    I would suggest looking into the Rayzist or Photobrasive units. They're expensive, but down time and poor production times are worse in my opinion.

    Good luck!

    Check out epilog too, their rotary has a lift on the end so you can rotate a knob and raise your piece level.

    I have 2 now getting to be older Epilogs and would still buy another in a heartbeat!...

    UV Bonding Light

    Curious if anyone has a UV glue setup, and what light you're using. I'm considering a Dymax porta-ray 400, but for the price I want to make sure there isn't a better option out there.

    Thanks!
