QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Can this machine cut and etch styrene plastic? Also can it burn holes small enough to fish 0.010" fiber optic wire thru? I'm a small scale model builder wanting to scratch build custom parts. Thanx, Dan.

    Thank you for your question:  According to FLUX, this is what the 30w beamo guarantees that it can cut.  Other customers have been able to do other things beyond the exact specifications, but this is what FLUX stands by for this product.  You may need the stronger, more powerful Beambox.

    "beamo can cut and engrave wood, leather, cardboard, acrylic, rubber, foods, and more. The maximum cutting thickness is 5mm (varies by materials). beamo can also engrave on anodized aluminum and stainless steel, but the power levels are not enough to cut these materials."

  • Can the 30W engrave metal, specifically aluminum and brass?

    It can engrave anode metal and stanless steel with a diode laser.
    This link notes which materials can be cut and which can be engraved.

  • Is the hybrid laser add on required to engrave on metal?

    Yes and no,  So the Hybrid laser will allow for surface etching on metal,  but the standard laser is capable of using materials like Ceramark, or Brilliance inks to burn a ceramic paint into the metal  now obviously this isn't really etching more of a transfer process,  but the result is beautiful like the black writing on a Yeti cup unbelievably durable and vibrant, you simply spray it on, laser the graphic, then use a wet rag to wipe of the paint where the laser didn't hit, this results in a baked on ceramic.

About Hardware

1. How do I vent the machine?

beamo is equipped with an air pump and a powerful exhaust. The air pump prevents the material from catching fire while the exhaust extracts smoke and fumes.

2. What is the size of the work area?

The work area is 11.8” x 8.2” x 1.7“ (30 cm x 21 cm x 4.5 cm). There’s a honeycomb structure tray for materials that are up to 1.18” (3 cm) thick. The tray can be adjusted manually or removed to accommodate materials up to 3.15” (8 cm) thick.

3. Does beamo come with a honeycomb cutting platform?

Yes. The platform is manually detachable, freeing up an additional 22mm for materials when removed. With the beamo open-bottom kit, then there are no limits to the thickness of the materials.

4. Where should I put my beamo?

The laser creates smoke and fumes when operating, so we recommend you pick a well-ventilated location and use the included exhaust hose for outdoor venting.

5. What maintenance procedures are there?

To ensure continuous quality laser engraving or cutting, check and clean the lenses and mirrors regularly. Usually once every week, but it depends on usage and frequency. Lubricate the rails and check the water level of the cooling tank regularly.

6. Are there any consumables?

For general use, the CO2 laser tube lasts 6 months to 1 year. The lenses and mirrors lasts 1 year or more under regular maintenance. If replacement is necessary, you can refer to our tutorial to change the parts on your own. We’re still working on pricing and we will update this information as soon as possible.

About Laser

1. What's the wattage of the laser tube?

beamo is equipped with a 30W CO2 laser tube operating at 10,640-nm on average.

2. What materials can beamo cut and engrave?

beamo can cut and engrave wood, leather, cardboard, acrylic, rubber, foods, and more. The maximum cutting thickness is 5mm (varies by materials). beamo can also engrave on anodized aluminum and stainless steel, but the power levels are not enough to cut these materials.

3. Is it possible to cut deeper than the maximum cutting thickness stated in the specs?

Yes. The maximum cutting thickness stated in the specs is for a single cut with at average speed. If you slow down the speed or re-do the cut, you can cut thicker pieces. For example, the maximum cutting thickness for acrylic is 5mm, but you can cut 10mm or thicker acrylic if you slow down the speed or re-cut several times.

4. Does the camera cover the complete work area?

Almost, the camera will miss the upper margin by 1cm. Please see the specs for the exact dimensions.

5. What safety precautions should I take?

beamo is designed with various safety features, such as open lid detection and emergency shutdown. Nevertheless, it is best never to leave beamo unattended while it’s operating.

The power levels are not high enough to cut metal, but beamo can etch anodized aluminum and stainless steel with our specialized coating.
