Thread: Wanted to buy RASTER laser machine

  1. #1

    Wanted to buy RASTER laser machine

    I’m interested in buying a “raster” laser machine for hobby use.

    Somewhere in the area of 12“ x 18” bed size.


    I’m not interested in high power For cutting, 40 watts would be fine. I mainly want to do raster engraving.

    Can anybody recommend something for this purpose

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Have a look at the Aeon Mira 5, I have one with a 30w metal tube, so just air cooled. Great for engraving, but I wouldn’t use it for cutting anything thicker than card.
    Shenhui SG350 fitted with a 60w tube.
    Aeon Nova 10 100w tube.
    Aeon Mira 5030 30w RF tube.
    20w Fiber Laser.
    50w Fiber Laser.
    Located in the Isle of Man, which isn't in the UK but almost surrounded by it.

    Thanks for the Inputs, Julian and Bert.

    The price of these machines are a bit higher than what my budget will allow.

    Does anybody know Is there anything out there in the $2000-3000 range? Less than 40 watts would be fine. I would like to have a turn key set up. Really not interested in building one from a kit.

    Basically I’m just looking for for “Raster” engraver.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    A Mira 5 might be within your price range if you ordered it direct from the factory rather than go through a local reseller. Just do a search on Alibaba.

    Aeon Nova 10 100w tube.
    Aeon Mira 5030 30w RF tube.

    This looks like a nice used laser it says year 2000 but the label says 2016

    I’ll have to do more research on the price. Initial numbers appeared to be in the $4000 to 5 range

    Looks interesting,
    A friend was telling me about a universal laser and how much he liked it.

    I will definitely look into this one.

    I understand what you’re saying. I would prefer paying more money for a “plug and play “

  13. #13
    I need to do more price checking, initial pricie checking was much higher

  14. #14
    I checked Alibaba and I could get one for $2000 but had to buy 10 of them For that price.

    I will keep looking.

    the machine IS a 2000, the label:
    uni00.jpg

    The 2016 label is attached to the laser itself-

    Since there's a factory Uni label on the laser, I would wager that indicates the tube was rebuilt, but not sure...
    Still, looks like a good machine, price isn't bad, probably many years left in it...

    My BIL owns my old 1997 Uni -rebranded New Hermes- that I bought well used in '02, not a day goes by it doesn't see at LEAST 6 hours use,
    and other than a tube replacment that it didn't really need, nothing has ever failed...knock on my head

    I have NOTHING bad to say about Universal lasers, I'm surprised I've never gotten another one...
