Visible light lasers don’t work too well with metals…

I’d think this is probably unlikely that you will be able to do much with metals … You’re best option is likely some kind of coating you can lase to the metal… Even that, may be a problem with only 5W.

Good luck


Brass is typically 70% copper, which is a very good heat conductor like aluminum.

I did some 0.010" brass, using it for arrows on the machines column… I could tell … had to add some more power to get it to cut…

Copper pans are considered the best for cooking because of coppers heat conductivity.
