Gantry expansion for laser machines – V2

Gantry expansion for laser machines – V2

Prototyping and installing the last changes, my kitchen table had to fill in as workbench.
If you bought our last version of this expansion kit – you will get all changed parts for free!

This is the last test with motors before manufacturing starts. We already have all parts – now the fun starts!

In the prototype test, screws and colors might be off. I just used what i had around to do a speed and movement test.
In the pics below – parts are missing, this is just a overview quick pic 🙂

More videos later when doing speed and movement tests.

This kit is made with MGN bearing sliders instead of wheels which has pretty much zero wear on the parts, moves better and less resistance.

End-price will be 339 EUR with three motors and everything needed.
Pre-order price at 249 EUR as soon we have completed all tests and started putting kits together.
You can find it in the store here

    This looks like a great idea, and nicely made.
    I’ve added my email address to the wait list and want to get one soon as they’re ready for sale !
    You say “Pre-order price at 249 EUR as soon we have completed all tests and started putting kits together”, but the pre-order price on the order page still says 279 euro?

      The price will change later when we release it for pre-order. We are doing some speed and movement tests before releasing the kit and start to assemble all parts.
      This is a upgraded version of a kit we sold earlier so we know it works, we just want to be 100% we got all parts in stock and everything works as intended before taking pre-orders on it.

      This version2 also contains all motors and laser head, V1 didnt have that so this is everything needed with better steppers than original K40 and can be mounted in any kind of laser machine, K40, bigger or a DIY machine.

    Thanks, I’ve just ordered this kit, can’t wait to see it.
    It should turn the K40 into a really capable piece of kit !
    Do you have any videos of it running yet please.

      Doing the final edit of the videos and installation instructions after the weekend, i´m away on a short holiday at the moment 🙂
      It´s really fast and so much less vibrations than the original gantry.

      Had some clips out earlier but i removed them, the V2 has been updated so much it wasnt the same thing any more. Kids starts school on Thursday after that i have normal full work days again, new stuff published later this week. Doing a full install in a K40, not sure how long it will take to edit though.
