we are looking to buy a ~150W laser machine from China. Of course, after spending a couple of hours on the forum, the conclusion is that there's good and very bad from China. I am a bit confused right now ....
I am in contact with GoldenLaser in China, and I have the choice in a laser machine (~150W) with glass tube for around $7000 or the same machine but mounted with a steel tube (from the USA) at around $32000 ! Obviously this is not the same investment.
- Do these prices seem okay ?
- Does anyone has heard about or experienced with GoldenLaser ?
- In the 150W area, which other chinese companies would you recommend to contact ?
- What would you recommend regarding glass vs steel, or what was your experience ? The glass tube need to be considered as consumable, but I am a bit worried about thinking of these 3-4 feet fragile glass tubes in crappy packaging thrown from China to Europe. On the other hand, the price for the RF tube is a solid knock-out.
Thank in advance for you help,
