I need your input. Want to build a CNC laser for ablating paint on metal pipes. It would be used only for that purpose.
The pipes are of diameters from 250mm to 600mm. Their length is from 100 to 350mm. And weight from 0.5kg to 5kg
Ablating paint like shown here.
Here's a basic drawing of the idea for the machine:
Actually, just saw the forum member VDX was using the same process for PCB. So that's doable.
I'm mostly interested in the construction of a machine doing that same, but for pipe objects.
Also, the laser part of the machine could be this one.
Well, I was thinking of using that kind of black paint (or any other paint that can withstand etching or salt electro etching).
The size is along the circumference of the pipe, so say fi250 x 3.14 is length and width can be 100mm to 350mm
The speed is not important.
