Introduction:

This Laser/Spindle Combo Head is designed to add laser functionality to the greenBull CNC machine. It comes included with a 2.2kw Spindle. With the ability to do laser applications and routing at the same time, this Z-axis attachment will make your machine even more capable of doing large and detailed projects without the need to switch to a different machine.

Description:

The Laser/Spindle combo head was designed with the idea that laser engraving and CNC machining could be done by the same machine. The Z-Axis attachment is specifically designed to hold a mounted 2.2kw Spindle and a 40 Watt CO2 laser tube simultaneously.

If you already have a spindle or laser tube and components, then we also offer options to buy the assembly without these parts. We are also offering the barebones (structure and hardware only) if you wish to supply your own spindle and laser equipment. You can specify whether or not you need 220V or 110V power supply for the laser.

Note: Lead screw length for the Z Axis is 16.5 inches. Packing list may saw otherwise.

Maintenance Instructions

Before each usage of the laser, make sure to check the laser lens in the nozzle on the bottom of the assembly. Loosen the thumb screw to free the nozzle, then separate the nozzle to expose the laser lens. Make sure the lens has been cleaned properly with a cloth so it is free of dust or any other debris.

Also make sure clean water is always used. Periodically inspect the laser mounts to make sure the glass tube is not loose.
