How to use a laser engraving machine

After you have a laser engraving machine, you still need to prepare the pattern design, prepare the material, set up the machine, start engraving, clean the equipment, etc. This usually takes some time to learn for those who are new to laser engraving machines.

Plan your workspace

You will need sufficient workspace for your engraving equipment, storage areas for materials and parts, etc. Considering the fumes and dust that may occur during the engraving process, it is necessary to choose a work area that meets your power and ventilation needs.

Build your portfolio and marketing

Proper marketing efforts are also important. Develop a website to build a brand image where people can learn about your services and request quotes as they visit the site. The use of social media as well as proper marketing campaigns can help increase your brand's awareness.

Continuous improvement and growth

Continuous technological progress is also important, and continuous research and development of new products and technologies can effectively increase productivity, thus further improving the market competitiveness of laser engraving machines.
