With the right settings and parameters, you can use AtomStack A5 M30 to engrave and cut various materials, such as wood, leather, acrylic, plastic, metal, bamboo and PCB board, 55.5W output laser power allows you to cut 3mm thick acrylic and thicker wood board. A recommended parameters for different material engraving and cutting are provided in the a sheet for you to download at the button of this page. Yet, even for the same material category, differences may still exist, so we also recommend that our users to conduct testing on samples before engraving and cutting to find the best fit parameters. Tips using AtomStack A5 M30.
Only installation manual is included in the package with the unit, please download the User Guide down below for detailed using instruction. Please follow the instruction to set up the unit for the best using experience, we provide a step by step manual in the package, set the belt and screws tight enough, place the unit on a flat and horizontal surface.Laser could be dangerous, if you are new to this, please practice to engrave or cut material using the parameters we recommend first, and then try to adjust according to the results. If you set the power too high and the speed too slow, the laser might burn and damage the material you try to work on, on the other hand the result may be obvious if you set the power too slow and the speed too fast. We recommend to use LaserGRBL (only for Windows operating system) and LightBurn (for both Windows and Mac operation system), you need to download the software using the link we provide in the installation manual (P12, English). If your computer(Windows) fail to connect, you need to download CH340 driver, an instruction is also provided on the installation manual (P12, English).
When engraving on reflective material, such as stainless steel or white board, it is recommended to black-painted the surface you want to work on using marker pen for good engraving results. Why we you recommend to black-paint metal before engraving?For non-coated metals especially those has reflective surface, laser may be reflective away from the engraving spot leaving on enough power for metal vaporization, black-paint the surface can significantly prevent the laser from reflecting away. For Coated metals, on the other hand, can be easily engraved with clean and impressive details without being black-painted on. What plastic can be engraved on? Standard cast acrylic plastic, acrylic plastic sheet, and other cast resins generally laser very well. Many products made of plastics such as light switch plates and many other faceplates are made to be laser-engraving-proof. However be aware that for all type of laser engraver, styrene and other thermoforming plastics will tend to melt around the edge of the engraving spot(when the power is too strong), the engraving result might not be sharp enough, so please don't use high power laser to engrave if you need super sharp edges. We recommend orderly experimentation on a sample piece when you plan on engraving plastics.
Can AtomStack Laser Engravers be used to engrave stone, glass and mirror? Stone and glass do no turn gaseous EASILY, but if the power and speed are just right, excellent results can be achieved. With that being said, conduct experiments on samples are recommended.
There are two ways to engrave mirrors, the first one is to engrave the glass side of the mirror using the right power and speed, and of course black-paint the surface before engraving. The new form of mirror engraving, laser pulsates through the reflective silver layer at the rear of the mirror, as as result, the glass side remains intact, maintaining the full reflective qualities. After the engraving process, you may "filled" with the new coating to replete the lasered detail in the mirror if you want to.
