Before Using the laser engraving, please read this safety guide carefully, it mentions situations that require special attention and includes warnings of unsafe practices that can cause damage to your property or even endanger your personal safety.
0. 1 Laser safety AtomStack A5 uses Type 4 laser product. The lasers are very powerful that can cause eye injuries and burn the skin. We have installed a laser cover on the laser. To a large extent, theshield filters out the diffuse light from the laser spot. However, it is still recommended to wear laser goggles when using the laser engraver. Avoid exposing your skin to Type 4 laser beams, especially at close range.Teens must be supervised by parents while using the machine. Do not touch the laser engraving module while it is switched on.
0.2 Fire safety The high intensity laser beam generates extremely high temperaturesand a lot of heat due to it burns the substrate when it cuts. Some materials can catch fire during the cutting process, thencreating gas and smoke inside the equipment. When the laser beam hits the material, Usually, there will be a small flame. It will move with the laser and will not remain lit as the laser passes over it. Do not leave the machine alone during the engraving process. Please do remember to clean the laser cutter of debris, scrapsandflammable materials after use. Always keep a working fire extinguisher nearby. Safety against fumes or airborne contaminants When using a laser engraver, fumes, vapors, particles are generatedfrom the material (plastics and other flammable materials), there are potentially toxic . These fumes or airborne contaminants can be hazardous to health.
0.3 Material safety Do not engrave materials with unknown properties. Materials Recommended: Wood, bamboo, leather, plastic, fabric, paper, opaque acrylic, glass.Materials not recommended: Metal, precious stones, transparent materials, reflective materials etc.
0.4 Use Safety Use the engraver only in horizontal position and ensure that it hasbeen securely fixed to prevent fires caused by accidental shiftingor dropping from the workbench during work. It is forbidden to point the laser to people, animals or any combustible object, whether it is in working condition or not.

Laser engraving is a popular option that provides a permanent and legible marking on an object through etching, ablation, or deep laser engraving. It is similar to laser marking, but the resulting appearance differs due to the depth of laser penetration.
Laser engraving is commonly used to create permanent serial markings on substrates made of: Metal, Wood, Plastic, Leather.
Benefits Of Laser Engraving Over Traditional Processes
Compared to manual engraving:
Minimally Invasive: Laser engraving can be performed at a range of depths without any direct contact at all. Surface marks can even be done on stainless steel with no depth. Overall, lasers are less damaging than manual engraving and keep the substrate material’s physical integrity intact.
Precise: Lasers provide a level of control that’s impossible to achieve manually. Compared to hand-engraving, the process is swift, clean, and highly repeatable, with little room for human error.
Versatile: A single laser engraving machine can be used to create a host of different designs with only minimal calibration. They can also produce exceptionally complex patterns.
Affordable: On average, laser devices last longer than other engraving machines and require less maintenance, resulting in savings that can be passed along to the consumer.
Fast: Lasers can be programmed to render virtually any design in a matter of moments. Because the process is automated, it’s easy to scale production runs as needed according to demand.
Long-Lasting: Laser-engraved designs are permanent but can wear over time, depending on the substrate material that’s used. Soft metals, for example, may experience more signs of wear than hardwood. In general, however, laser-engraved designs tend to have a longer lifespan compared to other engraving methods.
