Your laser system uses a high intensity beam of light that can generate extremely high temperatures when it comes into contact with the material being engraved, marked or cut. Some materials are extremely flammable and can easily ignite and burst into open flame, setting the machine afire.
This open flame is very dangerous and has the potential to destroy not only the machine, but the building in which it is housed. Experience shows that vector cutting with the laser has the most potential to create an open flame.
Many materials are susceptible to igniting; however, acrylic (in all its forms), has shown to be especially flammable when vector cutting with the laser.
Please read the following warnings and recommendations and follow them closely at all times!
