Orion Motor Tech 40w Laser Cutter, The specs, Review and features

Orion Motor Tech 40w Laser cutterA lot of people write in and ask me “Which laser cutter” should I purchase. What’s the best bang for buck machine? Will it stand the test of time? Will my Laser engraver survive the postage trip and not be a banged-up piece of scrap metal. Well, fortunately, the Orion Motor Tech 40w Laser Cutter has hit my radar, and the stats look promising.

To start off with, If you are new to laser cutting/engraving you are probably confused about what you need to get the ball rolling with your hobby.

Who is Orion Motor Tech?

Orion Motor Tech is an Automotive manufacturing company specializing in high tech automotive parts. They have branched out from this area to include the manufacturing of laser engraving machines to the entry-level market.

Orion Motor Tech 40w Cutting Deck

12″x8″ – 304mm x 203mm

what does this mean?
This is the max space that the Orion MotorTech 40w machine can use when cutting or engraving a piece. This means that if you have a slab of wood that is 12″x8″ that you are wanting to engrave, you would need to fit all your designs within these boundaries for the machine to be able to effectively cut or engrave your wood.

To remember:

Before you decide on the Orion Motor Tech 40w machine, please make sure you determine what you are going to be engraving first. This machine is a great size for most crafty applications such as led lamps, dog tags, key chains, wooden earing, wedding invitations, etc, which will easily fit without the boundaries of the cutting deck

Orion Motor Tech 40w Warranty

6 month warranty

Because the Orion Motor Tech company is not a “Backyard” K40 producer, they offer quite a good warranty towards this machine. 6 month warranty is included for this machine, which is good considering most of the other entry-level to intermediate machines on the market have limited Warranty considerations.


Dimensions

31.4″ (W) x19.7(D)”x17.7(H)
797.5mm (W) x 500.3mm(D) x 449.5mm(H)

If you are still in the process of establishing where you are going to put your machine. I would recommend having at least a foot on either side of your machine and a foot behind, for ease of cleaning and enough space to put off-cut pieces of timber, rulers, spray gloss cans, etc. Having a cramped work area is extremely frustrating, so make sure the space you create for this machine will be sufficient for your K40
