    ... is this a 445nm-laser on your CNC?

    I'm engraving dark coated steel or other materials with roughly 30 to 50 mm/s, cutting more like 10mm/s.

    But I have several different (stronger) lasers at hand, beside the 2W@445nm, to get the best effect for the specific materials or surfaces ...

    What you need to engrave on steel is an Epilog Fibre Marker.
    This space for rent.
