Thunder Laser is based out of Dongguan City, China. Other than the recent Thunder Laser feedback – reviews have been overall good.
Howewver, the website claims have opened recent controversy. None of which are being addressed by the company to date.
Sales representative Nolan Yang discovers in a forum discussion below that contrary to the website claim their machines do not have servo driven motors but rather hybrid servos that utilize steppers. Which is a monumental difference. Some purporting it a false claim.
Their US website is: http://www.thunderlaser.com/usa-laser-engraver/
The laser tubes are from a relatively newly popular China based “SPT” supplier which is about average in terms of quality beam, stability, and rating. They offer low prices but there are much better laser tube manufacturers out there.
Recent forum discussion includes Nolan (ThunderLaser sales rep) and Stolen (Forum contributor):
“Nolan, repeating a lie will not make it the truth.
“Leadshine company just call it “servo motor“..
No Nolan. They do NOT.
They call it “EASY servo” to distinguish it from their real DC Servo line. In the description they explain the EASY system is comprised of a STEPPER motor with Closed Loop drive and encoder.
“So do you think our company is not honest with our clients?”
I think it is quite obvious.
“of course I think it’s a selling point. “
Only because you are dishonest with your clients.
“We did change our laser from normal stepper motor to servo motor”
No, you did NOT. There is NOT A SINGLE servo motor in your machines. All motors you use are STEPPERS. If you don’t know the diference, plese educate yourself. There is plenty of information online. It is NOT a matter of opinion or how you call it. There is a HUGE difference in the construction, operating principle, performance and price.
