Machine: K40 with nano
Problem/ Question: Hi, I see that the laserboard has alternative laser output and PWM. If I were to mount a blue laser onto the ‘laser cart’ in the K40 and switch the CO2 laser off, could I use a second laser for applications requiring lower power? If so, would there be much value in doing this, other than preserving the life of the CO2 tube, and how would I connect things up, but more importantly persuade Lightburn to use one laser or the other?
By this same token, could I also drop in a small spindle (for drilling and light milling). My thinking is that many jobs might need lasering, drilling, routing and a few other CNC processes, yet to be developed, spray painting, polishing, flame cutting/polishing etc., etc.
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
