Bodor Laser Reviews 2017

bodor support teamIf you’re looking for timely user feedback on Bodor Laser then the following links will be of help.

Jinan Bodor CNC Machine Co.,Ltd. is based out of Jinan, China.  Bodor sells mainly co2 and fiber laser machines.

Due to their comparatively late entry into the United States (Bodor imports direct to consumer or through various resellers) there is still growing feedback from buyers especially reviews on their Facebook page.    The general consensus is mixed with feedback pointing out their sales, marketing, and design ability versus the underlying functionality, dependability, and support of their machinery.

Mixed reviews on forums show both satisfied and disappointed customers due to shipping delays,  damage during transport, inconsistent overseas technical support, component failures, cabinet rust, warranty disputes, etc.   This may all be a part of maintaining standards during rapid growth.  They offer a 3 year warranty but limit the laser tube to only 10 months.

Bodor currently supplies their machines to buyers across many countries.

Prices are comparatively cheap.  As far as the USA you can review RoseGraphix or Laguna Tools who have recently started reselling Bodor units.  Other smaller outfits will often sell Bodor laser cutters as a compliment to their core business equipment.

As of late Bodor resellers  are able to quickly market the brand due to a low entry barrier and inventory acquisition costs.  Resellers may or may not have experienced laser photonics aptitude or support technicians.  Nevertheless, Bodor can supply its own backup support for those who need it…

NOTE:  Forum opinions may not always be the most reliable source of feedback since many who comment are well meaning, but have no experience with the machine being discussed.   Also, forum contributors are notoriously biased towards their own particular brand or type of laser (i.e. RF tube vs glass tube laser) and anything that competes against it is inferior.   So, although forums can be helpful its best to get an overall consensus from other sources both online and off and from those who can appreciate your intended use.  I would also suggest you visit or at least call the laser company yourself that you’re interested in to get a first hand idea of who and how you can expect to be supported after the sale.  Don’t just speak to the sales department call in and ask for service or support.

  1. Well, what I see what is happening here in the US with this Bodor is that they have been mass producing their machines at a discount to anyone and everyone (if they buy a specific quantity) as their reseller – regardless of whether they have any laser experience or not. The resellers then are basically box flippers who may or may not possess the knowledge, understanding, patience nor the component inventory to support customers long term.

  2. Seeing who is selling Bodor now it’s obvious they mass manufacture their lasers and wholesale to any reseller abroad and here in USA regardless the experience. Consequently their machines, support and inevitably the end user all suffer.

  3. We are sorry to share our very bad review and experience with Bodor. Since we purchased nothing has changed… Last May 2017 we bought one of their Laser Cutting Machines. Just last month we had a problem with the machine, the laser was not firing. After we informed our dealer they connected with us through their head office. After a video call to discuss the problem support identified the issue confirming that it would be fixed soon. But, the machine is still in the same condition and now no one is replying to our messages. Now we are seeking legal council due to all the daily recurring problems we’re having including financial, staff salary, space rent, loan repayment, etc. and of course our customers. To date we are not sure we’ll ever realize a solution to this.
