    Looking forward to the video of your machine cutting this part. It’s a tradeshow/demo part so a comparison will be interesting.

    So is this a photo of what you did on your “fiber laser” cutting system?

    Strostkovy,
    The pump diode is low brightness as compared to the laser output.
  10. You have some pump diodes for a fiber laser. No...

    You have some pump diodes for a fiber laser. No precision metal cutting capability with just a pump diode.

    This may be OK as your motion system is not capable of precision cutting with a fiber...

    Tell us about the cutting evaluation you did with these diodes prior to making this purchase.

    You are saying you have some diodes, not a fiber laser.
