Using Laser Engraving Machines Safely

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 10:02 pm

Engraving machines often make use of high powered lasers in order to create intricate and precise designs. While these laser engravers are precise and accurate, they can also be dangerous machines to use, requiring the right level of protection to be used safely.

A common way of protecting those around a laser engraver is by using a laser safety viewing window. These provide a solid wall in close proximity to the laser, but are also made from transparent materials, allowing the laser to be viewed if necessary.

Viewing windows like these are especially useful for design or manufacturing work, which require visibility of the laser as it is being used. They are available in several different materials, each of which are suitable for various applications.

Opaque laser protective barriers are also available but are recommended more for automated laser applications such as production lines and manufacture.
