Almost six years ago, Endurance Lasers began delivering laser heads for 3D printer users and CNC makers and professionals. During that time the company has sold more than 3,500 units.

Differentiating itself from many other suppliers, Endurance offers substantial power output and provides comprehensive tech support in its Facebook community, enabling a platform for people to discuss and share their experience with Endurance products.

In October 2020, Endurance presented its most powerful laser yet, the DUOS 15 watt (15000 mW) laser beam head. This product combines two beams together with a polarizing beam splitter. This technology enables 15-watt real and rated optical power output.

The 15W DUOS laser system.

This laser allows users to cut high-density plywood and wood as well as cutting MDF, something that was not so easy to achieve with only diode lasers.

Occasionally, makers may face problems cutting wood or plywood; even when they have the same thickness that they’ve cut in the past. This is because the wood or plywood might have a different density.

Diode lasers can easily cut 3-4 mm wood and plywood with densities less than 0.5 g/ cm^3. However, to cut thicker and higher density wood, it likely needs an air nozzle. It is quite easy to make an air nozzle yourself. See here for instructions.

An air nozzle.

An air nozzle can also be 3D printed:

One handy do-it-yourself possibility is to cut some high-density materials with a lower power laser in a sealed chamber filled with a carbon dioxide:

Some might say that you can buy a CO2 laser system for the same amount as you need to spend on a laser diode itself; however, there are some pros and cons when it comes to comparing a diode and CO2 laser system.

Current giveaway

Endurance invites everyone to join its 14th laser giveaway for a chance to win a 5.6-watt upgraded diode laser attachment.

The winner will be announced November 30, 2020.

Upgrading your current laser system

Keep in mind that, if you already have a diode laser system, you can easily upgrade it with an air nozzle combined with a better laser lens system.
