An Exploration of Operational Processes and Safety Standards in Laser Engraving Machines - LONGER

In the manufacturing and art fields of today's society, laser engraving machines have become a vital tool. These advanced devices use laser beams to precisely engrave and cut on various materials to create a variety of creative works, allowing users to realize their creative ideas and providing users with unlimited creative possibilities. However, as the application scope of laser technology continues to expand, the emphasis on operating procedures and safety standards has become increasingly prominent. For the personal safety of operators and the good operation of machinery and equipment, laser engraving machines must be inspected and used in accordance with specifications, and good specifications must be formed in long-term work to achieve standardization.

Laser Engraving Machine Operation Process

The operating process of a laser engraving machine usually includes the following preparations:

  • Preparation work: The user needs to prepare the laser engraving machine. Users must ensure that the equipment is turned on and operating normally before use, and also check whether the laser head and lens are clean. In addition, they need to prepare the required engraving materials and design files.
  • Parameter setting: Before starting engraving, the operator needs to set appropriate parameters according to the type and thickness of the selected material, as well as the desired engraving effect. For example, if you are using a Longer Laser B1 series high-power engraving machine, you can set parameters between 20-40W to engrave some harder wood.
  • Import the design: Next, the operator imports the designed pattern or text into the control system of the laser engraving machine through computer software. Generally they can adjust the size, position and orientation of the design to ensure the final engraving is as intended.
  • Positioning calibration: Before starting engraving, the operator needs to ensure that the material is correctly positioned and fixed on the laser engraving machine's workbench. They may need to use a red laser pointer to align the engraving position to ensure the accuracy and consistency of the engraving.
  • Start engraving: After everything is ready, the operator can start the laser engraving machine to start engraving. The laser beam moves along a designed path according to preset parameters, gradually engraving patterns or text onto the material surface.
  • Monitoring and adjustment: During the engraving process, the operator needs to closely monitor the operation of the laser engraving machine to ensure that the engraving process proceeds smoothly. They may need to adjust parameters or stop carving as needed to ensure the final result is as expected.
  • Cleaning and maintenance: After engraving is completed, the operator needs to clean the work area and maintain the laser engraving machine in time. This includes removing material residue, inspecting and cleaning the laser head and lenses, and ensuring proper operation of the equipment.

The above is the general operating process of a laser engraving machine. The specific steps may vary according to different equipment and applications.

Safety standards for laser engraving machines

 Since laser engraving machines use high-energy laser beams, safety standards must be strictly followed during operation to prevent accidental injuries and equipment damage.

  • First of all, operators need to receive professional training to understand the working principles, safe operating procedures and emergency handling methods of laser equipment.
  • Second, you must wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as goggles and gloves, to protect yourself from laser radiation and material splash. Some machines are equipped with protective devices. For example, the panoramic filter glass laser module of the Longer Laser B1 series laser engraving machine uses panoramic filter glass to block blue light and filter out 97% of ultraviolet rays, providing good protection for the eyes.
  • In addition, the laser engraving machine must be installed in a well-ventilated working environment to prevent the accumulation of harmful gases and dust.
  • Finally, during operation, operators should always pay attention to the operating status of the equipment and be ready to respond to emergencies at any time, such as emergency shutdown or fire extinguishing.

 Longer brand laser engraving machines are known for their ease of operation and greater safety. The device is equipped with an intuitive and easy-to-use control panel and software interface, allowing users to easily set parameters, import design files and start the engraving process.Longer is fully compatible with industry-leading software such as LightBurn and LaserGRBL, as well as LongerBum, developed independently by Longer. LongerBurn can adapt to both Android and IOS mobile platforms. LongerBurn can be connected to Laser B1 series and Nano series laser engraving machines through WIFI, and has multiple functions such as drawing creation, engraving preview, machine control, material library, and historical records to meet the diverse needs of users. In addition, Longer adopts advanced safety technology and design to ensure the safety of personnel and equipment during the laser engraving process. Longer brand laser engraving machines can not only meet users' needs for high-quality engraving and cutting, but also ensure users' operating experience and safety, safeguarding your creativity and production.

The operating process and safety standards of the laser engraving machine are key factors to ensure the normal operation of the equipment and the safety of personnel. Only through strict operating procedures and safety measures can we give full play to the advantages of laser technology and provide users with high-quality engraving and cutting services. Therefore, when using a laser engraving machine, be sure to keep the operating procedures in mind and always put safety first.
