Laser engraving technology, as a high-precision process, has gradually become popular and applied in many fields with the development of technology. It is widely used in manufacturing, art design, digital plate making and other fields, and has replaced the traditional rust, corrosion and chemical etching and other inefficient and environmentally polluting processing methods. So, how to use Atomstack laser engraving machine? Below we will detail the basic process of laser engraving machine.
Step 1: Preparation
First of all, you need to check whether the laser engraving machine is working properly and make sure that the installation of all components has been completed. Also, you need to prepare the items to be engraved, such as wood, acrylic plate, aluminum plate, glass, etc.
Step 2: Adjust The Lens
The lens of the Atomstack S20 Pro laser engraver is a very important component that needs to be properly adjusted to ensure optimal performance. Firstly, you need to set the lens focal length according to the type of engraving material, where the shorter the focal length, the higher the clarity and depth of the engraving pattern. Secondly, the lens height needs to be adjusted according to the size and complexity of the pattern. In addition, the surface of the lens must be clean and dust-free to avoid affecting the quality of engraving.
Step 3: Design The Pattern
Before laser engraving, you need to use CAD (Computer Aided Design) software or other appropriate software to design the pattern. For beginners, you can use some free online design software, such as Inkscape, CorelDRAW, SketchUp, etc.
Step 4: Import The Design Pattern
After the design pattern is finished, you need to import it into the control system of the laser engraver. Usually, the control system uses USB memory or Wi-Fi connection to transfer the design files to the laser engraving machine.
Step 5: Set Parameters
Before laser engraving, you need to set some parameters, such as laser power, speed, scanning line density and engraving depth. Usually, these parameters will be adjusted according to the type and thickness of the material. If you are not experienced, you can use the recommended parameters for operation.
Step 6: Carve
Now that you have done all the preparation work, you can start laser engraving. Before proceeding with engraving, you need to make sure the safety door of the laser engraving machine is closed to avoid any harm to personal safety. Then, press the start button to make the laser machine start running so as to carry out engraving. During the carving process, you need to pay attention to the carving effect and the operation status of the laser engraving machine to ensure the carving quality and the normal operation of the machine.
Step 7: Finish Engraving
Once the engraving is completed, you need to stop the operation of the laser engraving machine and check the engraving effect as well as the condition of the cut items. After completing all the work, you also need to open the safety door of the laser engraving machine and take out the material.
The above is the basic process of the laser engraving machine. It is important to note that when using the Atomstack S30 Pro laser engraver, it is important to operate with caution and pay attention to safety to avoid harm to yourself and others. In addition, it is necessary to set different parameters according to different materials to ensure the engraving effect and quality. In the daily maintenance, it is also necessary to clean and maintain the equipment regularly to ensure its long-term stable operation and extend its service life.
