If 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, only offer 10 months on the laser tube which is the most important and expensive component on the machine.
Most reviews are positive with roughly 25% at a 1-star on TrustPilot. A recent TrustPilot review claimed Bodor Senior management in effect bribing one who left 1-star review by offering free accessories if they edited their review.
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 rebranding Bodor units. Other smaller mom-n-pop outfits will re-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.
