LaserBot is a desktop laser engraver developed on Makeblock's open-source platform. Equipped with 1.6W 445nm high power solid-state lasers, and cooperating with its software mLaser, LaserBot can easily engrave and cut many things for you, and help you to make surprises in daily life. For instance, making Christmas cards/birthday cards for your families, or engrave your honeymoon photos on the wood for decoration, etc.

LaserBot uses a beam of light to cut, engrave, and shape designs from a variety of materials.
• Simple but solid H-shaped structure;
• High-precision anodized aluminum alloy;
• Arduino compatible;
• User friendly software;
1. 1.6W 445nm semiconductor and Solid laser: The rotation speed of its high power laser head can reach up to 200mm/s, so that LaserBot is twice as efficient as XY Plotter (with Laser Engraver Upgrade Pack) . You will save more time to realize your ideas!
2. Megapi: The powerful mainboard MegaPi brings you unprecedented experience of laser engraving. It not only has superpower to control various motors, but also very easy to use. Moreover, you can also combine it with Raspberry Pi to explore more.
3. High-precision: Up to 0.1mm, carefully engraves every details.
4. Engraving area: Up to 383mm×367mm
mLaser: This is a new software for LaserBot, our DIY laser cutter. It includes both simple mode and expert mode for different levels of users. Also we simplified the operation and setting procedure to save more time. Therefore, it is so user friendly that everyone can use to control LaserBot.
Goggles: Specifically designed Goggles for LaserBot to protect your eyes during laser engraving.
Velcro sticker pad for Laser head: In order to avoid excessive scattering of laser, we specially designed Velcro sticker pad for Laser head. Only one step needed to install the Velcro sticker pad to laser head.
Wavelength γ= 445nm blue-violet diode laser
DO NOT directly irradiate eye or skin by the laser beam.
WARNING: As laser energy gains higher density, make sure corresponding protection measures are taken while using.
• No direct eye-contact with the laser light path;
• DO NOT irradiate others by the laser;
• Keep away from children and other people who are not familiar with laser usage;
• When the laser is used, take eye protection measure;
• When certain materials are cut by the laser, it is possible for them to produce toxic smoke, take ventilation measures.

Payment can be made by either PayPal or Bank Transfer, whichever customers would like to use.
The advantage of using PayPal is the timeliness, while the disadvantage is the relatively high commission fee charged by PayPal. Therefore, PayPal is usually recommended for order of small amount.
In terms of Bank Transfer, it will take longer time, even one week to the maximum; however, the handling charge is lower to some extent; so, Bank Transfer is preferred when the order value is large.
Delivery will be made within 1-2 working days after the receipt of payment.
