The air assist serves three key functions: it clears the cut for deeper beam penetration, cools the cut edges to prevent plastic sagging and re-welding, and ultimately, it prevents smoke and particles from settling on the lens.
Upgrading the air assist system can ramp up cutting and engraving speeds, elevate overall quality, and shield optical components from the effects of smoke and dust. It can minimize scorched edges, resulting in more uniform engraving tones and crisper image details. Additionally, it provides cleaner and more even edges for cut objects.
Our laser comes equipped with a standard red cross-positioning module, enabling faster and more precise positioning of the engraving area and determining the material's flatness. The advanced infrared cross-tracking system provides highly detailed and real-time visualization of the laser beam trajectory, making precise fine-tuning of its position easy and straightforward.
HONEYCOMB LASER BED
The honeycomb grid is made of steel. In contrast to its aluminum counterparts, this unit provides the option to secure materials using strong magnets to prevent movement during cutting or engraving.
The honeycomb laser bed is specifically tailored for laser cutting systems. Its open design efficiently filters cutting smoke, minimizing staining and charring when working with wood and other organic materials. It also prevents over-burning, leading to fewer burn marks and cleaner cuts. This significantly enhances cutting efficiency and overall quality.
Sure thing. The honeycomb bed is removable.
The necessity depends on where you have the laser machine installed. If it's in an enclosed space, investing in an air purification system could be beneficial. However, if you're operating outdoors or in a garage, it's less likely that you'll need to upgrade any type of exhaust system, as you can directly vent the fumes outside.
This is likely because you may not have waited long enough for the built-in exhaust fan to completely clear the smoke through the exhaust duct. The built-in exhaust fan is designed to clear the smoke from the enclosure within 18-30 seconds after the job is finished.
If you're unable to vent the fumes outdoors, or you're working with materials that produce a significant amount of fumes, it's recommended to invest in an air purifier.
The AtomStack safety shell is made of high-quality acrylic and holds an FDA Class 1 certification, ensuring safety. It effectively filters out blue light and comes equipped with a built-in exhaust fan and exhaust duct to quickly disperse smoke, dust, and sparks. The high-resolution camera enables visual processing and creative tasks, including AI-assisted batch processing. Its distinctive deep orange design and dual LED lights ensure clarity during the engraving process, enhancing overall safety.
For your convenience, we provide three adjustable focus blocks.
Choose based on whether you're engraving or cutting. You can easily adjust the height of the laser module in three simple steps. Just loosen the screws on the laser module, slide it until its protective cover contacts the focus block, and then tighten the screws.
It depends on personal preference.
Focusing the laser isn't difficult but it can be intimidating. If the idea of focusing the laser makes you nervous, you can opt for automatic focus; however, after getting familiar with the machine, taking some time to learn how to manually focus your machine can be very helpful.

- Routinely examine the belt for any notches. During installation or other processes, avoid bending the belt. It contains steel wires, and bending can potentially cause wire breakage.
SOFTWARE AND MANUALS
You can directly download the software for your laser from our website (click here).
The AtomStack laser engraver is compatible with a range of well-known engraving software. Experienced users can opt for LightBurn, while beginners may prefer LaserGRBL. LaserGRBL is compatible with Win 7/Win 8/Win 10/Win XP, while LightBurn can be used with Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. Data transfer can be done through Wi-Fi, USB cable, and SD card.
In Lightburn, verify if the GRBL version of the device was installed correctly during the installation process. Go to the Laser window, click on Device, select your device, then click on Edit. Ensure that GRBL is selected.
Using LightBurn or LaserGRBL, you can establish direct communication with the laser through a cable. If you have a display board, you can transfer files to a USB and operate the laser through the display board. Additionally, you have the option to engrave or cut using our dedicated app on your mobile phone.
Use the "Start from: Absolute coords" option in the Laser window. Be careful where you set "Job origin" if you choose other work options. Find detailed explanations of how it works in LightBurn's Help.
Attempt to refrain from operating the laser at full 100% power to prolong its lifespan.
Our measurements are conducted in controlled laboratory settings, utilizing a pristine lens and regulated environment. Using higher power levels escalates the chance of lens damage upon contact with combustion byproducts. These byproducts may reflect the diode-generated beam, disperse light radiation into the lens, leading to overheating and potential cracking.
- Ensure that you've turned the safety key and confirmed there's voltage in the laser (check if the operation indicator light is on).
- Verify if you've installed the recommended USB port drivers from the manufacturer. Sometimes, during the OS installation, generic drivers are selected, which may not support the functionality of certain connected devices. It's crucial to install the recommended drivers for your computer from the manufacturer's official page.
- Have you installed the CH340 driver? Regardless of your operating system, ensure you install this driver; otherwise, the laser won't operate within normal parameters. For Windows users, upon installing the LaserGRBL program, you'll gain access to the latest version of this driver.
If Windows automatically installed a generic driver for your laser, install the LaserGRBL program, uninstall the driver, and then reinstall it. (Tools => Install CH340 Driver)
- Double-check that you've selected the correct COM port and confirmed that the Baud Rate is set to 115200.
- If you're using a Mac computer, you might require a Type-C to USB converter to connect the cable.
Normally, the lasers do not come with an air pump and dust fan as they are sold separately. If you need them for your laser, you can also find them in our product listing.
If you're experiencing a decrease in burning power after connecting the laser to the computer, consider the following:
- Verify the cleanliness of the lens. It's important to check and clean the lens regularly, as burning can release fumes and combustion byproducts that may adhere to the lens. Use the provided cloth along with isopropyl alcohol or specialized photo lens cleaning products. Avoid using cotton-tipped Q-tips as they can scratch the lens due to the hardness of the cotton thread.
- Confirm that "S-value max = 1000" (in LightBurn => Edit => Device Settings) and $30 = 1000 (LaserGRBL => Grbl => Grbl Configurations, or LightBurn => Edit => Machine Settings).
Please be aware that achieving clean-edged cuts (without scorching) and making precise cuts involves employing multiple passes with higher speed and power, approaching maximum but not at 100%, along with the use of air assist. This method allows for cutting in incremental layers without scorching the material deeply. When calculated, the execution time may be equal to or even less than if you were to opt for very low speed and high power.
- The materials used may have an inhomogeneous composition. The plywood may have knots or glue in larger quantities inside, which make burning with the laser beam difficult. The more layers the plywood has, the greater the possibility of encountering a knot. Manufacturers must also use lower-quality wood sheets, which are hidden in the inner layers. Plywood for hobby, special plywood for laser; even if it is more expensive, it is of better quality from this point of view. Try to burn the project one more time, without moving the material, to have complete cuts.
- If there are problems cutting on a larger surface of the material, check if the material was at the same height level with the laser head.
Absolutely, you can choose to replace the laser module with a different one. However, please note that not all machines are compatible with module replacement. For specific details, please refer to the product information provided. Alternatively, you can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for consultation, and our team of skilled technicians will be happy to assist you.

We offer an Extension Kit for AtomStack laser engraving machines. The A6 series products will be upgraded to a conveyor belt.
WATTAGE AND POWER
Laser machines with higher wattage often come with larger bed sizes to accommodate the larger physical dimensions of the higher wattage laser tubes. These tubes are typically longer, so having a larger cabinet to enclose them is practical. With more space in the cabinet, there's room for larger bed sizes, enabling the engraving or cutting of larger materials or multiple parts simultaneously. This offers users greater flexibility and capability when working with higher wattage laser machines.
No, that's not accurate. It's actually easier on a lower-power machine. These machines come equipped with a short focal length lens, whereas higher-wattage machines are equipped with a medium focal length lens. Moreover, lower-power machines offer greater flexibility with power settings, making it easier to achieve a high-quality etch or engrave.
When compared to other cutting equipment, laser cutters and engravers are much safer to use. They generate less dust, emit weaker light, and produce less noise. Nevertheless, it's crucial to wear safety glasses and follow the proper precautions during your work.
You need eye protection when the hood is open. All Monport laser engravers come with laser protective eyeglasses.
If you are a customer from Amazon or eBay, please reach out to email@example.com.
