    I can see this unit engraving, but what can the 7W laser cut successfully? Fiberglass cloth? Thin balas? What thicknesses? Etc.

    445nm lasers are great at engraving. It can "cut" organics (cardboard, leather, wood) but ideally you want a CO2 laser for cutting. But... This is mounted to a Router. So use the appropriate tool for the job. Engrave artwork with the laser then switch tools and cut it with the router. Super fast, clean, perfection
