Around here, CNC can be a Router bit, Drill bit, Laser beam, Waterjet, Plasma....

Have never come across any bolt on laser head, but I can imagine it will be a bulky concoction...
Unlike Plasma...

Are you wanting to engrave or cut? This will determine what you are trying to accomplish. Look over on the zone. (www.cnczone.com)

I fully believe if you are looking at thin cutting and engraving you can ADD this feature as a second option to a MechMate.

Cutting I think would be a different story and would fall into the realm of mixing plasma and routers.

Can you say FLAME ON !!!

But really I would love to see a MechMate with a Laser hooked to it !!!

Just a bit of thought here, most lasers have a resolution of 1200 to 1800 lines per inch, and operate at 60 to 120 inches a second.
Can you (imagine) rasterizing (engraving) a 1200 by 3000 mm table at 1200 times per inch at 10, 20 or 25 inches a second.
For cutting it would be a very feasible, a 100 watt laser can cut 3/4 inches of plywood at 4 to 6 inches a second, not cleanly because of the resins, but acrylic and solid woods 1 inch is possible...
Using Fiberoptics a very small head design...hmmmm

Just want to say howdy to Gerald, havent chatted in years... Dan
