FABOOL Laser Mini (2017/08~) Manual

Height Adjustment of Laser Unit, Preparation for Cutting/Engraving

Height Adjustment of Laser Unit

*When cutting or engraving with FABOOL Laser Mini, there must be a space of 3mm in between the laser unit and material you want to cut or engrave for the laser to focus. Adjust the height appropriately for the thickness of the material.

Use the height adjustment acrylic (part ID: A-5).
*It is covered with scratch protection sheet. Remove it when using.

How to Adjust Height

1) Put the material to be cut or engraved under the FABOOL Laser Mini and place the height adjustment acrylic on the material. Then, place both of them together under the laser unit.

2) Loosen the dial screw on the side of user unit and lower the laser unit until the bottom part hits the height adjustment acrylic. Tighten the dial screw on the side of optical carrier. Make sure to remove the height adjustment acrylic after fixation.

Note that if the dial screw is not tight enough, optical carrier might be loosened while cutting and engraving, and the laser unit might fall off.

Placing Protector for Base

*We recommend using the protection cover when using FABOOL Laser Mini, but if you do not, put a board underneath to protect the base.
We recommend using a steel board, stainless plate, or other inflammable material (preferably dark in color in order to reduce reflection from laser radiation). Make sure to use a board large enough to cover the entire area used for cutting and engraving.
