So I have installed an air assist on my 3018 CNC machine for use with the laser.
Best bit… It works… I can now cut with my laser quite successfully.
My question however is that the blowing if the air is making one hell of a racket.
I have a Hailea aco-208 which blows out 35l per minute. This makes a noise obviously but it’s the other end of the airline which makes a racket.
If I squeeze the end of the airline then the noise quietens down but (there’s always a but) I need the airline to be 10mm to fit my air assist adapter which slips over the laser (diode).
Am I just being thick… Is there a solution… Any help appreciated.
My set up:
3.5w laser diode
Hara aco-208 compressor
1m long air hose which is 10mm inside diameter.
