    Help on selection of a laser engraver

    I am planing to purchase a 60 to 100 watt Chinese laser engraver in the next few weeks and would like some recommendations on brand and vendor selection from people
    who have some experience. I have been reading a lot and watching a few videos on the subject. From my studies it appears the the RUIDA controller is desirable and ORION
    and MOPHORN are good brands. I will purchase from someone who has an office in the US.

    Please tell me if you feel any of the above is incorrect. Recommend another brand or a vendor. Any comments or recommendations will be appreciated. THANKS!!!!!

    Welcome to SMC. You should have a look at the Trotec import. I have not seen it and don't know the price but I understand the software is better than the masses of Chinese built machines. Trotec support would be a big plus for me.

    My first one came from Automation Technologies and my second one I bought off E bay that had them in stock. I payed about $4000 for the first one shipped it is a 60 watt 12 x 20 bed with just a water pump and fan. It took a week to get it. The second one is a 130 watt with a 36 x 24 bed that came with a CW5000 chiller a rotary and fan for $4500 and it came in 3 days

    I've had my Rabbit USA laser going on 5 years still on the original 60 watt tube. Haven't had much trouble at all. Ray Scott owns Rabbit USA in Ohio and give excellent support. These machines are built like a truck and priced well below the big 3.

    Have a look at the Aeon Brand, I have one of their smaller machines a Mira 5 with a 30w RF Tube, their build quality is on another level compared to the other two Chinese CO2 lasers I have. I have just placed an order with the factory for a Nova 10, 100w 1000x700mm machine.
