The Acro Laser platform  is a compact, lightweight system designed specifically for laser engraving.  It uses a standard OpenBuilds parts package with belt drive, NEMA 17 motors (not included), and a lightweight frame available in Silver or Black anodizing.  The system is available in 5 sizes to meet any need.

The Y axis has 2 motors, the X axis has one motor.  The Z axis is manually adjustable, there is no Z axis motor.  A Z axis kit is available as an option for added versatility.  The system is capable of attaching almost any available laser module.

Electronics package consists of 3 motors, all in one controller board, and power supply.  All cables are included.

Laser can be any of the available 2.8, 4.2, or 7W packages.  Laser Diodes can be attached to the ACRO system mounting plate.  The ACRO Diode Mounting Plate hole pattern is designed to accommodate many available diodes. If the diode you choose has a different mounting pattern you can easily drill holes in the acrylic to mount.  

Please note: There are lot of great choices when it comes to laser diodes so be sure to pick the right one for your application. Power choice is important as well as making sure your diode supports PWM. 

Here are a couple laser diode manufactures that may help.
