I have other Next Wave products and the quality & technical support is second to no other company. I’ve been shopping for a laser for quite some time and when this product became available it was an easy choice.

will this laser frost glass?
howard l on Feb 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No at only 7 watts it is more of an engraver
Is the wattage strong enough to engrave anodized aluminum?
Elijah H on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, you will need to move into CO2 lasers for that capability
Is this an attachment for a cnc or it's own separate machine?
Elijah H on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a separate machine
Would like to see this in action and some stuff it has created. Very interested. Is that possible?
