Before you order, check the internet: Wicked says there in stock but somehow they dont deliver, people are waiting for 4 weeks now, nobody is picking up the phone and the forum is down.

I did not checked this info myself so do some research if your planning to order.

You said you operate a 2W RGB laser. Tell me what kind of cutting power would this 1 Watt laser they are talking about have? Cut it cut lets say 10 gauge steal? I am looking for some this could cut things like car body panels and such. A plasma cutter would work for what I want but this sounds cheaper and more portable.



HAHAHA!!!!!

Don't you realize that a lightbulb (incandescent) is 60 watts! Can you cut steel panels with a lightbulb? Sheesh.. people and ignorance never cease to amaze me... absolutely

by the way, the minimum power that the USA military considers effective is 100,000 watts! 100KW

I wish people would search before posting their ignorance


----

Just to muddy the waters (watters?) here...light can cut steel ONLY if
it is monochromatic which is a single wavelength from Far Infrared
up to X-Ray.

A 5 kilowatt (5000 watts) Carbon Dioxide laser is more than
adequate to cut through 1/4" steel (AND THICKER!).

If you want to go for SPEED of cutting at more than a metre per second
at 1/8" or 1/4" steel then a 15,000 watt or 20,000 watt laser (CO2)
is best.

Yes a 60 watt lightbulb is more powerful than a 10 watt laser but since
that lightbulb energy is spread out amongst multiple frequencies
the amount of work it can do is limited.

However a 10 watt laser concentrating that beam of light at a specific
wavelength such as 540 nanometres could cut paper and burn
your skin at least and MORE!!!!

i was reading on slashgear or engadget that they got hit with a S&D order from george lucas. they even posted the letter from them on their site.

I imagine in the not to distant future that laser weapons and tools will be commonplace. Using a laser cutter to slice bricks for example when building a house, or a laser gun carried by police that replaces the pistol.
