Top 5 Laser Application Tips for the Beginner

Avoid overlooking any of these areas for laser engraving.

  1. Make sure you’re using a laser with the appropriate capabilities for your application.
  2. Make sure you’re using laser-friendly materials. Some materials, such as vinyl, for example, emit noxious fumes when they are processed with a laser.
  3. Make sure you have proper exhaust and ventilation.
  4. Focus your lens appropriately for safety and better processing results.
  5. Test your speed and power settings.
