5.6W Endurance Makeblock engraving and cutting machine
8W Endurance DIY engraving and cutting machine
Endurance Makeblock engraving machine is a necessary solution for those who need a big coordinate table 31x39 cm (12x16'') with the functions of a plotter and laser cutter/engraver.
Endurance DIY is a universal solution both for home and small enterprises usage, such as souvenirs engraving and stamps making.
1. Design of the Laser plotter:
2. Beam focus adjustment. For security reasons goggles with red-orange glasses were used. Beam focus adjustment was done by laser lens rotation. We found the lens position at a very low power (2-3%), when the brightness of the observed beam unexpectedly and sharply increases. (Focusing by means of focal length evaluation in a smoke-logged air was not performed.) The optimal focal length for engraving is 150 mm.
3. Materials used for engraving.
