The Atomstack A10 Pro should be a very powerful laser engraver because of its dual beam laser module and improved mechanics compared to the previous model, the Atomstack A5 Pro.
The Atomstack A10 Pro has a rectangular engraving area of 410*400mm and is equipped with a very premium control panel with display and quality buttons. It also has an offline controller, so the laser can only be operated via its touchscreen. No computer required.
Assembly of the machine is simple, it takes less than half an hour to assemble it thanks to a good manual.
The Atomstack A10 Pro features the flagship M40 laser module that delivers 10W of power to a very compressed point. Sintering temperatures are said to be up to 1200°C, which will allow us to engrave more materials and metals.
The machine has a 32-bit controller board with a touchscreen offline controller.
I also recommend buying more good quality goggles with OD6+ protection. You only have one pair of eyes. protect them! These lasers work in the visible spectrum, and even reflections can be very harmful to your eyes!
Save your eyes! The included safety goggles aren't the best. Do yourself a favor and get a premium OD6+ safe Google Glass for better protection for your eyes!
The focusing process is the same as the Atomstack A5 Pro we tested earlier. For best cutting results, the head needs to be 2mm above the engraved surface. Focusing is done by placing the acrylic plate/spacer under the laser head and lowering the laser head onto the spacer. The spacer is 2mm thick and the head remains 2mm above the surface after tightening the z-axis screw.
A10 Pro also has some special features worth mentioning:
The machine has a cool offline controller that allows us to use the machine without a computer. It is very handy for field jobs and projects that require a lot of the same cutting work. You can set up your design in Lightburn or LaserGRBL as usual, but instead of starting sculpting, you export it as gcode to the included SD card using the included SD card reader, then you can use touchreeen to select the file , fine-tune parameters and continue sculpting your designs without using a computer.
We sculpted it with an offline controller. Check out the YouTube video below to learn how to operate the offline controller.

It has a solid metal mushroom-style emergency knob that comes in handy when you need to shut down the machine in a hurry.
This is probably one of the best features I hope all lasers will have one day. Limit switches allow you to automatically home the machine so that it always starts from the same position. This way, if you stop sculpting or add another layer of work (or if the machine crashes on the job), you can be sure that the machine will start working in the exact same spot you want. They decided to use cheap tactile switches instead of proper limit switches, but they worked just fine.
