Improve your 3D printer / CNC gantry/engraving/cutting machine with a 15-watt real laser power.
"1st Cut Tests (with air assist) of dense 1/8" Balsa Using Duos 15 Watt DIY Kit. Almost through cut with 1 pass at 90% power with FR of 15 ipm. Complete Through cut with 2 passes at 70% power with FR of 15 ipm.
Would have taken 15 passes with JTech 3.8 watt laser (and air assist).
I'm extremely happy with the power increase and laser dot size. Appears to be just as tight as my single 3.8 watt JTech Photonics laser.
Will cut kit plane as next test." by Reginald Jones
DIY "DUOS" laser beam system. 15 watts (15 000 mW) of real optical laser power. Laser head for your 3D printer / CNC machine.
15 watt installed on Sain Smart Genmitsu CNC 3018
Easy mounting. Easy wiring (5-24V TTL). Pre-set focus!
Combined laser beam
Plywood & MDF cutting with an Endurance 15 watts "Duos" laser.
3.2 mm MDF cutting
(High density MDF 3.2mm (1/8”); density 0.88 g/ cm^3, speed 400 mm / min, 10 passes)
6 mm plywood cutting
(6 mm thickness (1/4”) plywood (5 layers); density 0.65 g/ cm^3, speed 400 mm / min , 8 passes)
A 15 watt DIY unit is installed on an Endurance custom frame
Get all you need to get started
- 1 x 15 watt DIY "Duos" laser head.
- 1 x a small & a big laser boxes (with Mo1 PCB).
- 1 x PSU (12V 8A AC/DC).
- Protective goggles.

Engrave on stainless steel, acrylic, ceramics as a professional!
The laser beam spot is 0.12-0.125 mm (120-125 uM)
Ultra-high precision for effective laser cutting and laser engraving.
Comparing 15 watt vs. 10 watt diode laser.
2 beams are always better for cutting than one!
