How powerful is the LaserBeam?

The LaserBeam offers a maximum continual optical output of 7 watts.

Each laser is tested to ensure that it meets the rated power levels. The LaserBeam is best used for engraving organic materials like wood and leather, and cutting thinner materials up to approximately 1/4″.

For more information on what sort of materials the LaserBeam can cut, please see the video below or check out the Material Guide:

While the LaserBeam is an excellent attachment, for some users, it may not provide enough power for some applications. The LaserBeam will not cut metals, ceramics, and certain plastics. For these applications, you may want to consider a CO2 laser or Fiber Laser.
