Ultra-HD High-Performance OpenBuilds WorkBee CNC Laser Upgrade with PLH3D-XT-50, HP Air Nozzle and LaserDock
Arguably the world’s best single-laser-diode OpenBuilds WorkBee laser kit. Not only it can laser engrave & cut materials with Ultra HD precision, but for wood and cotton, it engraves at the popular CNCs' speed limit , ~150 mm/s (5.9 inch/s). Can also engrave with a 3 mm thick line in a single pass. Greener than Fiber & CO2 lasers, it does a job with lower electricity bills and CO2 emissions.

Great choice! This full OpenBuilds WorkBee CNC Laser Add-on kit with XT-50 laser head, arguably the best single-laser-diode laser engraver and cutter on the market, is a perfect addition for your OpenBuilds WorkBee CNC machine! It contains everything you need for your OpenBuilds WorkBee CNC machine - from plug-and-play electronics for OpenBuilds WorkBee CNC controller, through mechanical mount to laser safety equipment. Effectively, it allows you to set up your XT-50 laser head on your CNC machine in a matter of minutes! Laser process with Ultra HD Precision or deliberately offset your laser’s height to engrave with up to a 3 mm (0.12 inch) thick line or curve in a single pass thanks to XT-50’s adjustable-size square laser spot! Designed with care to maximize cooling, the machined Aluminium housing and the strongest-in-class fan increase the XT-50 laser’s lifespan to 10k-30k working hours, 20-200 times longer than other laser heads on the market last on average!
Why Is Your Choice of XT-50 and This OpenBuilds WorkBee Laser Add-On Kit a Sound Decision?
XT-50 can be used for laser processing of almost all materials. For wood, wood-based materials and cotton it can laser engrave at the maximum speed of popular CNC machines, approximately >80-150 mm/s (3.15-5.9 inch/s or 189-354 IPM). It also typically consumes up to 16 times less electrical power than other types of laser solutions for laser processing commonly-available materials to a desired effect.
XT-50 is the most precise high-power laser head on the market, offering a 2469 kW/cm² focused laser spot. Even if the laser beam was focused to a smaller laser spot, the human eye would not notice the difference in the laser engraving and cutting precision. XT-50 laser head can engrave with a sub-0.05 mm (sub-0.00197 inch) laser spot, which corresponds to the real-life DPI of 550+. The human eye cannot notice the difference between the real-life DPI above 300 (ie. the physical density of spots on a real-life physical material).
XT-50 performs exceptionally well compared to other types of lasers because commonly processed materials have an innate preference for shorter-wavelength laser sources. In practice, using the XT-50 laser head on your OpenBuilds WorkBee CNC helps you advance your production while reducing costs and providing exceptional quality of your produce.

XT-50 Laser Head Allows You to Unlock Your Potential:
Laser Engrave with Ultra HD Precision
With XT-50’s next-gen optical system, you can laser engrave various materials with Ultra-HD precision thanks to a sub-0.05 mm (sub-0.00197 inch) laser spot. XT-50’s aspherical lens system at the diffraction limit reaches the theoretical limit of the resolution performance, ensuring sharp, crispy engraving and minimizing the edge charring.
Adjustable-Size Square Laser Spot
Use XT-50 with the laser spot size you want! Laser process with Ultra HD Precision or deliberately offset your XT-50's working height to engrave with up to a 3 mm (0.12 inch) thick line or curve in a single pass, thanks to XT-50’s adjustable-size square laser spot!
Laser Cut with Ultra HD Precision
Laser cut with Ultra-HD laser precision, and be able to cut more materials and cut faster than with other single-laser-diode laser heads!
Laser Engrave Wood and Cotton at the Maximum Speed
Unlike other single-laser-diode laser heads, with XT-50 you can laser engrave wood, wood-based materials and cotton at the speed limit of your CNC machine - 80-150 mm/s (3.15-5.9 inch/s or 189-354 IPM). You will also engrave other materials significantly faster and be able to laser process more problematic materials requiring higher laser power density.
Laser Engrave or Mark Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel and Titanium
XT-50’s optical power density, 2469 kW/cm², is so high that it allows you to not only laser mark stainless steel and Titanium, but also laser engrave them. Laser marking stainless steel is defined as the change in the surface colour and can be scrubbed off with a few energetic scrubs with fine sandpaper. Laser engraving stainless steel, on the other hand, refers to removing a layer of metal and is practically permanent.
