One compressor, two lasers?

Post by cd1986 » Fri Mar 05, 2021 10:02 pm

Is anyone using one air compressor for more than one laser cutter? (specifically, one 22l Titan silent compressor with two LS6840’s?)

I did for a while on my two 3060's - apart from having to kick in more often it worked ok.

Great. Did you just use a y splitter somewhere in the line and get another regulator for the second machine?

No - regulator then y splitter then one of these for each machine

Remember though I am using it as an open system so turn of the flow from the compressor valve.

I do drain the compressors when I remember but not had an issue with condensation reaching the work.

UPDATE

I have spoken to Chris at HPC and there are UK H&S considerations regarding the method of controlling the air assist so on that basis we recommend not fitting any device that is controlled via the laser or laser software.
