Laser Cut Safety Measure

Proper safety measures, ventilation and cooling is necessary when running a laser cut machine.

Every CO2 laser machine is fitted with an exhaust vent for the smoke or fume produced during laser cutting and a water coolant system to keep the laser beam resonator from overheating and running optimally.

Placement of the machine in a safe and well ventilated environment is important as it may also be a fire hazard if handled unsupervised; necessary precaution such as a fire extinguisher is advised.

The lens of the laser head may need wiping after about 3-6 months of usage and may need to be replace after about a year of usage.
