Very nice upgrade

Review by Chris on 6/10/2015

After installing this kit, my K40 laser cutter is leaps and bounds better than it was before. The upgrade is time consuming, but it wasn't difficult. I spent about 4-5 days gutting the machine, cutting and routing cables, and installing the hardware. I opted to replace pretty much everything, including the laser power supply and optics. The end result is a really great, accurate, and stable machine, though.

Only one regret

Review by John on 12/1/2015

The X7 controller is an excellent upgrade that I would recommend to anyone with a k40. The controller and a table combo gave me a brand new machine that I have complete control over. The circular interpolation actually creates a circle instead of an egg that the stock controller would make. The burns are consistently smooth. As the previous reviewer mentioned, it's not a plug n play type conversion, but not too difficult either. It took me about 30 hours to get the upgrade completed. My motion control experience prior to this build was zero; but with the help of the LO forum and googling issues I ran across, I got it working above my expectations. My only regret is that I struggled with the stock controller for too long before I upgraded to the X7.

Best choice you can make as a K40 owner

Review by Michael on 5/2/2016

I purchased the kit after running my engraver for about 6 months and it seems like I wasn't even using it before. The upgrade process went extremely easily thanks to the wiring diagram (make sure to sign up for the forum in order to find it). Even re-alining the mirrors went without a hitch.

Buind a better laser

Review by Paul Noble on 1/13/2018

I purchased the upgrade for my K 40 laser based on the companies integrity. The equipment looks to be very well built but I have not been able to hook it up yet. I signed up for the forum to get approval to download the schematic, the manual and the program but have not been approved yet. I am excited to get started as I know it will be a great improvement.
