Repurpose Yag from medical or cosmetics

Postby rgwave » Thu Feb 06, 2014 11:33 pm

Yag lasers are extremely expensive. Is it possible to repurpose an inexpensive surplus Yag laser from the medical or cosmetic industry for etching or cutting relatively thin metals?

I can get Solid-Stage laser module and fiber optics laser module. Plus I can get the galvo with optics, and controller cards.
Not sure if there is high demanding or not as those items are quite expensive.

The two laser above is capable to do high speed engraving on metals and if power is over 50W, it can do thin metal cutting with multiple pass
