    Desktop laser cutter for steel?

    Hi,

    Is it possible to buy a desktop laser cutter for cutting steel, aluminum and stainless steel in thicknesses up to lets say 5 mm (about 1/4 inch)? I would only make small brackets, so my surface area is not important. Moreover, I have plenty of time, so speed is not a problem.

    This is the smallest laser for cutting I''div-gpt-ad-Forum_2''t want to make because there''t mean that as a China specific thing, but a more general, classic business vignette, where established companies ignore the low end of a market, at their peril.

    I''m not ready to go that route.

    No like others said for what you want plasma is the only viable option. Lasers for 6mm stainless steel, way up there in power, none of the lasers mentioned will go that high, not even the Amada Quattro.

    I don''m studying the situation with some interest, as when I searched for a machine with a particular set of specifications that best meet our needs, it appears to exist, but only in China, and I''t really accomplishing what I had originally set out to do.
