Introducing the Onefinity Jtech Laser

Important Note: We are still working with JTech to finalize the mount. We want it to be perfect. We expect to have it completed and ready to ship sometime in September. If your Onefinity machine ships before hand, we will ship the Laser seperatly.

Easy All-in-One Laser and Mounting Kit for the Onefinity CNC. This laser is manufactured specifically for the Onefinity by J-Tech (jtechphotonics.com)

Comes with everything you need to start lasering on the Onefinity CNC.

Works with all versions of the Onefinity CNC Machine!

*machine not included.

The standard kit comes with:

Laser diode component with mounting screws

Laser Shroud or Magnet Base Plate

Adjustable Safety Compliant Laser Diode Driver

Power Cord

Laser Safety Goggles for 445nm Lasers

Laser Fan

Laser Mount

3 foot Mini Molex Jr. Input Cable

Mounting Screws

Driver Mounting Sticky Squares

10 foot Laser and Fan Extension Cables

Zip Ties and Zip Tie Holders

Press Fit Connector and Tool

Features:

We still have all of the features that make this laser kit awesome – precision laser trimmed regulators for constant current to the laser, 0.01 tuning resolution, digital isolation, soft start, esd protection, current limiting, and the list goes on. But NOW we have more safety in mind as well! The US Federal Government has a list of things that are required for operating these high power class 4 lasers. They might seem trivial, but they could save your eyesight! Here is a run down of the new safety feature s to protect yourself and others:

Key Switch – This key is needed to enable the laser. When the key switch is turned on, the laser is enabled and the key CANNOT come out. You can only remove the key when it is disabled. This feature is good if you have curious children or have your laser in a shared area and want to limit use. Just take the key out and hide it!

Remote Interlocks – This feature allows for addition of switches to your enclosure so when it is open, the laser will automatically turn off. Also provides for the addition of an E Stop button for the laser, which is always good for if you need to stop the laser super quick! Add as many switches as you want to make a super safe area for your laser machine so nobody can accidentally look into the laser.

Power Fault Protection – This one may seem like it is not needed, but hear us out. Consider your power goes out in your area where the laser is located. You were running your program and then everything is dark… Power doesn’t come back on for awhile… long enough for you to forget that the laser was left ON! You come back and are checking your laser and boom, the power is back on, right when you are looking straight at it. Well, don’t worry because the laser will be disabled whenever the power to the driver is lost. Press the reset button and you are back in action!

Emission Indicator – The small little LED on the front to let you know your really super bright laser is on… They require this in case you are using an infrared invisible laser.

Hello, have you contacted Vectric so they can add the Onefinity to their supported CNC and Laser Module?

Thanks.

we’re working closely with jtech and vectric to do so.

Great, thanks. Any time frame?

It’s still being perfected. Very soon.

Does Vectric (Laser Module | Vectric)) support the Onefinity and the JTech laser module at this point. Jan 29, 2021? I am considering adding the laser to my order but want to make sure Vectric will work.

Thanks

Don

It seems to. I downloaded the Onefinity JTech post processor from the JTech site and it seems to work. I tried burning images and found that Lightburn did a great job out of the box, whereas Vectric was much darker. Perhaps it just needs fine tuning.

Thanks for updating. So you use Vectric for non-laser programs? What program do you download into the Onefinity? I guess they refer to that as a post-processor? I’m trying to learn as much as possible before my unit is delivered in a couple months.

I’ve used both Fusion 360 and Vcarve Pro to generate the g-code. I then used the Onefinity web interface to download the code to the controller and run it from the touch screen or the PC sitting next to the Onefinity.

I played around with the Vectric laser module some more and found that it is configured with default of 1000 for the maximum “speed” (I.e. laser power) whereas Lightburn was set to 255. Once I changed Vectric to output at up to 25% power instead of 100% the images look closer in density, although the Lightburn image still looks better to me. I think I will use Lightburn instead of Vectric VCarve for burning photographs.

Thanks Martin… glad it’s working for you

Are the magnetic mounting block files I have seen an upgrade to the magnetic mount that comes with the JTech laser? Or for someone converting a JTech to a OF machine? Is the magnetic mount that comes with the OF JTech all that is needed?

I have the post processors working but I cannot seem to find a laser tool database for the Jtech. Do I just create new tools for each laser setting?
