- Do you want to add a laser to your Cron Craft CNC machine? This upgrade kit was designed to fit onto the Cron Craft CNC machine at add laser functionality. The upgrade kit comes with a manual, assembly instructions and safety goggles. This is the perfect addition for your CNC machine.
The laser is a high quality blue laser module for laser cutting or engraving. It has a variable lense to set the focus. The aluminium housing and forced air cooling ensures efficient cooling for optimal operation and long service life. The intensity of the laser can be adjusted via the TTL/PWM signal. Please see the table below for the materials that can be processed with this laser.

- Always wear laser protective goggles (Included with laser) when operating a laser. This is not a toy, it is a powerful industrial tool.
- The colour of the material being processed can have a major influence on the efficiency of the laser, for example transparent and white perspex cannot be processed, but black perspex can be processed.
- Processing material with shiny surfaces like shiny metals can reflect the laser energy back into the laser which will damage the laser.
- When cutting wood, blowing compressed air onto the laser focus point increases the efficiency of the laser dramatically.
