Upgrade To 60w

I was thinking about upgrading my k40 with a 60w tube i was wondering if anyone has done this.also why is a 60w tube really a 50w,it says 60w but tube is only 1000mm×50 which makes it a 50 w

Hi James, we’ve seen people install larger tubes in various lasers. You will need to check if the tube will physically fit in your machine. (Some people modify their case by extending it to fit larger tubes. This is not recommended unless you know what you are doing, and can do it safely.) You’ll also need an LPSU (laser power supply) that can properly power a higher wattage tube. The standard K40 LPSU will not be able to power a tube over 40 watts.
