The Yora 6550 Air Assist is for you if you want to stop burn marks, cut out thin wood in less time, and save the lifespan of the laser on your Yora 6550.
Air assist basically means blowing air (supplied from an air compressor) onto the path of the laser to remove smoke and debris.
If using an adjustable focus laser (3.5W or 5.5W), you'll have to adjust the installation height of the laser module to accommodate the air assist nozzle.
Package includes: 3D Printed air assist and cap for laser height measurements, 1/4" ID Pure silicone tubing, 1x set of Zip ties, 2x Mounting screws
For the air compressor, we recommend buying this one from Amazon 1030 (GPH).
Note: Our air assist sales are final - we do not accept returns, though we will replace units that are damaged or defective.
Diode lasers are predominantly designed for engraving.
Their cutting capacity is limited. Cutting repeatedly will greatly shorten the life of the laser due to thermal stress on the circuitry.
In order to prolong the life of your diode laser, we recommend to:
‣ Use your diode laser for cutting projects on a non-recurring basis
‣ Use the air assist during any laser cutting process to reduce the number of passes
‣ Keep your laser below 80% power during normal operation
‣ Take advantage of routine "cooldown" stages during long projects to prevent overheating (15mn cool down every 30mn of laser running)
If you want to do cutting at any sort of production level, we highly recommend one of our CO2 laser engravers - they are much more capable of cutting.
