The Gweike Cloud Madness Bundle is a great way to get started with laser cutting and engraving. The bundle includes everything you need to get started, including a laser cutter, software, and materials. The laser cutter is easy to use and it can cut and engrave a variety of materials, including wood, acrylic, and metal.

Great machine, better than I expected.

I purchased the 55watt Cloud Pro 2, so far zero issues with setup and use. Only issues were with communication with shipping updates, otherwise completely seamless.

Great machine

! Perfect for my needs .Very helpful customer service.

Perfect laser engravings with the Gweike G2 laser

After careful consideration and intensive research, I recently opted for the Gweike G2 laser to carry out metal engravings. And I must say, my decision has proven to be extremely satisfactory.

The delivery of the device went smoothly and the device was carefully packaged, which immediately gave me a good feeling. It was surprisingly easy to set up thanks to the well-structured instructions. It didn't take long before I had the appliance ready for use.

However, what impressed me the most was the quality of the laser engravings. The precision and clarity with which the G2 laser works is simply impressive. I saw a video showing the engraving at maximum power and I was mesmerized by how fast and accurate the laser is. In real time, the result is just as impressive as in the video.

Of particular note is the legibility of the QR code I engraved on a piece of metal. Even with the finest details and complex patterns, the clarity is maintained.

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase of the G2 Laser from Gweike. The quality of the laser engravings, the ease of set-up and the reliable delivery make this device an excellent choice for anyone who wants to do high-precision metal engraving. I can recommend the G2 laser without reservation.

Sweet machine

As stated in the title. This is a sweet machine. I have a diode and a CO2 laser and this is a lot easier to learn. The quality is awesome but working with stone was quite a surprise.

Awesome machine!

I bought one of these in May 2023 and it has been used in my workshop nearly every day. I haven’t had any issues with it and recommend Gweike products!

Gweikecloud RF - Erfahrungen nach ca. 3/4 Jahr

Ich schreibe mal ein kurz Review auf Deutsch, vielleicht mag es dem Einen oder der Anderen helfen. Es geht hier um den RF Laser:

- Zunächst mal: Bestellvorgang, Abwicklung, ordentliche Rechnung für die Firma, Anlieferung Top. Das hat wirklich überraschend gut funktioniert.
- Die Erstinbetriebnahme war mechanisch/elektrisch ebenfalls kein Problem, zur Software später ein paar Worte
- Vorneweg direkt mal: Das Gravurergebnis des Lasers ist sensationell gut im vergleich zu den kleinen Co2 Lasern, die ich bisher hatte. Auch die Schnittergebnisse sind super, natürlich entsprechend eingeschränkt was Materialstärke angeht, aber das ist ja vollkommen klar. Leider haben doch zunächst mal die negativen Eindrücke überwogen:

- Die mitgelieferte Standalonesoftware lässt sich - trotz sehr bemühtem und wirklich gut zu erreichenden Onlinesupport nicht stabil dazu bewegen den Laser anzusteuern. Gleiches gilt für die OnlineSoftware, die den Laser mal findet, mal nicht. Mit Lightburn - ohnehin die erste Wahl - funktioniert er einwandfrei.
- Leider kam der Laser nicht mit sauber eingestellten Parameterprofilen weder in der Hauseigenen Software noch für Lightburn so dass die ersten Ergebnisse auch bei sehr langsamer Geschwindigkeit in ruckeligen Kreisen, Linien, verschobenen Gravuren resultierte. Mit viel Aufwand über Teamviewer und Whatsapp hat der SUpport dann alle Parameter noch mal richtig durchkonfiguriert und danach sind die Ergebnisse sehr akkurat. Die Schnittgeschwindigkeit führt allerdings bei hohen Einstellungen auch hier noch zu ruckeligen Kreisen und Bögen, da ist die angegebene Maximalgeschwindigkeit doch eher Marketing.
- Was leide rüberhautp nicht funktioniert ist die direkte Steuerung aus Lightburn heraus. Wenn man die Daten über Start von Lightburn aus an den Laser sendet werden die Ergebnisse absolut unbrauchbar, da stimmt scheinbar etwas mit dem USB Timing nicht. Das taugt allenfalls, um die den Frame mal anzeigen zu lasssen. Brauchbare Ergebnisse erhält man nur durch Übertragen des Daten in den Speicher des Lasers und dann durch den Startbutton. Hier liegt aber dann schon das nächste Problem, denn es gibt am Laser kein Menü oder sonstiges ausser diesem einen Button. D.h. man muss eben doch aus Lightburn heraus alle Steuerungsbefehle absenden, nur das eigentliche Schneiden dann nach Übertragen der Datei kann man am Laser starten und pausieren. Hierdurch wird speziell das feine Positionieren am Werkstück zur Fummelarbeit mit Maus und Co. Ein Anschluss des Lasers über Ethernet ist komischerweise nicht vorgesehen, das würde ggf. die Kommunikationsprobleme lösen aber der Ethernet ist absurderweise nur für die Kamera.
- Der Airassist ist zwar schön integriert und tut im Grunde auch aber er ist VIEL zu schwach. Leider gibt es durch die integration der gesamten Assiststeuerung auf einer kleinen Platine an der Mini Pumpe keine Möglichkeit, eine externe Druckluft anzuschließen. Das könnte durch ein zB umschaltbares Einlassventil leicht bewerkstelligt werden aber nicht so wie es verbaut ist. Schade
- Der Autofocus ist kein Echter, man muss zuvor die Materialdicke messen und im Lightburn diese von der Maximaldicke abziehen und dann eintragen. Dann fährt der Schneidkopf sehr exakt auf die Focusposition. Ist OK wenn man sich dran gewähnt hat. Bei den neueren Co2 Lasern von Gweike scheint es einen Echten AF zu geben (was durch den verwendeten Laserkopf mit Z Achse auch beim RF problemlos möglich wäre. Mir absolut schleierhaft warum man das beim Top Gerät weg lässt.
- Die integrierte Kamera funktioniert unter Lightburn ausreichend gut, man kann hierüber eine grobe Positionierung hinbekommen, eine Live Ansicht ist aber nicht möglich, d.h. man muss das Bild ständig aktualisieren wenn man das Werstück verrutscht. Kann sein, dass es eine Beschränkung von Lightburn ist aber damit kann ich leben.
- In Kombination mit der originalen Gweikecloud Filter-Absaugung funktioniert das Filtern der Luft auch recht gut, wenn man im Vorderen Bereich lasert qualmt es leider doch manchmal etwas aus den Schlitzen heraus. Die mitgelieferte Absaugung (Rohrlüfter) ist wie immer bei solchen Geräten ein Witz und wurde direkt entsorgt.

Bevor es nun zu viel Text wird, hier mein Fazit:

Wir schaffen es nach viel einarbeitung und Einstellerei mit dem Laser sehr gute Gravurergebnisse für unsere Orgelbauprojekte zu erzielen. Auch sicherheitstechnisch ist das Gerät im Gegensatz zu jedem anderen Chinalaser den ich in den Fingern hatte ein Traum, hier ist alles sauber, gekapselt und elektrisch OK (bin Elektroingenieru und habe auch direkt mal einen eCheck gemacht - bestanden, fast schon ein kleines Wunder).

Es bleibt aufgrund der doch zahlreichen kleinen Mängel bei einem sehr durchwachsenen Fazit. Wir verwenden das Gerät fast täglich aber bein unseren Produktionsmengen und Margen kommt ein wirklich "Guter" der ja schnell man die 15.000,- Marke knackt einfach nicht in Frage. Daher bleiben wir erstmal beim GC RF Laser.

Loving my G2!

I have had my 150mm G2 now for about 4 months and have had fun learning to laser on differnt metals and slate. I've made gifts for friends and a few products to sell. I have had great experience with GW support and from all of the helpful folks on the Facebook Users group. The periodic live streams have also been good to get me up to speed on this new hobby. It is a very capable machine for small business or hobby use.

Pretty impressed

Received my G2 and trying my first test. Pretty impressed and exciting to see the results.

works perfect

We received the laser engraver and it works perfect!

Thank you very much.

Great laser for its price range

I was an early backed on Kickstarter, been using the G2 for about 3 months now. I don't really intend to travel with it, but it's small and light enough that you could, definitely lighter than most other fiber lasers in its power range.

The software (GLaser) takes some getting used to, but is very similar to EzCad, so almost any video or tutorial you find on that can translate to this.

Compared to the 2w IR laser I had before, the G2 is so much faster at marking things and can engrave deep when I want to. I've marked a variety of plastics, marked and engraved metals, and engraved slate tile. And after some testing, can even get some colors to anneal on stainless steel.

Support has been responsive, and the community on their Facebook group is helpful as well, with users posting test files, tips & tricks.

Drawbacks? Judged against other 20w fiber lasers the only drawback is lack of LB support, but that is being worked on. Judged against fiber lasers in general, could always have more power or could have a MOPA source (even more/better color annealing), but then it certainly wouldn't be in the price range it's in. Compare against Gweike's G6 series to see how much different that would be.

I'd buy it again

Superior fiber laser

I have had this laser for several month and it is a work horse. It is my most dependable laser i have out of the 20+ lasers in my shop. This one you cants sleep on.

Added function

Having the ability to work with things like boxes or odd shaped objects by using the open base of the machine is a great help. The machine is heavy and I required help with installing the risers. They are well made, sturdy, and add great versatility to my laser. You do have to really understand your laser height adjustment when working with out of the ordinary materials. Very happy with risers.

excellent air filter

This is probably the best affordable air filter with a large volume activated carbon filter a very decent prefilter and an adequate HEPA filter stage.
The only major downside is that gweike does not offer the three filters for sale separately. I would absolutely recommend to them to offer the replacement filters for the three filter stages separately!

Great machine, better than I expected.

I purchased the 55watt Cloud Pro 2, so far zero issues with setup and use. Only issues were with communication with shipping updates, otherwise completely seamless.

Great product

This laser exceeds my expectations, I would have given it 5 stars but I have a problem with the red light which for a few days has no longer been visible unless I turn off the lights in the room. I hope I can solve this problem

Very Satisfied With My New Gweike Cloud Laser Cutter

Great performance and results. Plus, it is quite affordable compared to other similar machines.

Best co2 laser for the price!

Bought one of these in may 2023 and has been an absolute work horse. I had an initial problem which was quickly resolved through support on the same day.
The shipping was fast to Australia and they paid all taxes which is a big help.
I can’t wait to get another machine from Gweike. The quality and customer service is amazing.

So much easier!

Omg I am so happy they made these risers! Most of my time was spent adjusting the height. And the RF model isn’t light! These are the game changer. I have expanded to so many new items now! Worth every penny!

Good laser with the possibility of improvement

The order was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there were a few problems and delays with delivery. I finally received the laser. The laser was very well packaged and had no damage during shipping. Unfortunately, the insert was slightly bent, so that the limit switch was not activated and the insert was rubbing on the underside of the honeycomb. That shouldn't happen at this price and I would have liked a little more quality here. After testing for a week, the laser otherwise appears to be working without any problems. Only calibrating the camera with Light Burn didn't work and the response from support was just to use an older version of Light Burn. In general, communication with Light Burn is a bit bumpy and could definitely be improved. Unfortunately, the Air Assist sucks in some smoke inside the housing, which increases the contamination of the lens. A real compressor could definitely be installed here with air intake from outside the machine. Unfortunately there is no red dot laser installed to improve positioning. That's why I think it's a good machine but there's also room for improvement.

Time to upgrade......

If you want to upgrade your diode laser and been looking for a good Co2 laser.....this is the one folks. For the price you get this one for you cant go wrong. The best part for me with this laser is that I can use it with Ligthburn and off line. But....there is a but.....If you dont like to read some instuctions on how the laser works or how to figure out settings, you should not get a laser at all. This is not a toy to play with, laser is dangeruse if you are not paying attention to what your doing. I`ve had this laser now for 1 year and cant be more happy with it. The people at Gweike are awsome and helpfull and they have a facebook group where people are werry active and helpfull. A lot of ides are been shared there.

Nice exhaust filter

I have purchase two of these filter for my lasers, and use them on tabletop CO2 and enclosed diode lasers. The filters have worked well for removing the smells of processing various materials and the noise is acceptable for the amount of air that this unit can move on the highest setting.

The units did not contain the same accessories: one unit came with an exhaust hose, the other did not; one unit came with two sizes of hose adapters, the other with three sizes; one unit came with three extra prefilters, and the other with two. I can only state that the second filter I ordered contained the full set of accessories (hose, three adapters and three prefilters), however your purchase may be different.

Even without the full set of accessories, I would still buy another if the size met my requirements.

Review

Perfect !

55w gweike

My first CO2 laser, I have been using a diode laser up until now so new to CO2. The machine was delivered to my door well packaged no issues, everything was as described, I have been learning to use it for awhile now, and I'm pretty happy with it, I can't compare it to any other CO2 as this is my first one, I am only using lightburn software, some reviews I read complained about setting up the camera focus side of things, and laser focus but I found if you have some patience it will work fine, I'm pretty happy with the machine, it did do a few strange things a couple of times that I couldn't figure out, the only thing I would complain about is there is no detailed manual or trouble shooting guide included, because of this even some of the simple issues you might have you need to workout and can take some time, there is plenty of good information on utube, and lightburn forum, you just have to sort through it which takes some time, the best thing is the what's app support team if you have any issues you contact them and they get back to you in minutes really helpful but as with anything it's a learning curve.
Happy lasering👍

Solid Platform

These are great for elevating the laser so you can use a rotary. There are two lengths which can be combined for even larger volume runs.
