    Being able to switch out lasers sounds pretty cool! I don't know much about this topic, so can you tell me why you'd want to do so? Are some better at cutting and others at fine marking material?

    Hi David,

    ... I'm building/developing different types of laser or laserdiode-modules - have 405nm-UV-modules with powers of up to 1W ... blue 445nm-modules up to 6W (or multi/combined) ... red 652nm with up to 20W ... NIR (808nm to 975nm) with up to 200W (or too 6x combined with up to 1.2kW on a 0,4mm-spot) ...

    Or different fiber-lasers (CW or pulsed) ... or CO2 ... or TAE-N2 ... or ... -- this can vary widely with the target-application

    The attached image shows my actual "test-rig" - it's a servo-driven XYZ-CNC-mill with 257x210x210mm and sometimes a bit too small ... so the new one will allow a working area of 500x500mm for a direct laser or 610x610mm in combination with the galvo-scanner (+ 110x110mm)

    ... got another (abandoned) XYZ-machine, which was designed for laser-marking of insoles with a blue 6W-laserdiode through a galvo-head -- now some time to find
