Laser Lifespan?
« on: November 26, 2018, 09:17:10 AM »
Is there a lifespan or number of hours each type of laser is good for? My laser will work and do everything normally except burn an image. I focused the laser, took it apart and cleaned, checked power supply and software but have run in to a dead end here.

Lasers are wonderful machines..not ONLY  can they cut a finger off BUT  they can also cauterise it at the same time.....

SAFETY -  IS NO ACCIDENT

Have you tried a simple vector to see if it burns?

Yes the diodes have a limited life span, especially if they are over driven.
