1. General maintenance:
We recommend keeping the working area of Mr Beam clean, otherwise dirt particles get blown around during every laser job which can affect your laser result. A small vacuum cleaner might be handy for cleaning, but a cleaning rag and glas cleaner are also sufficient. Get more tips in our cleaning guide video:
2. Laser head cleaning:
The dirt residue resulting from cutting and engraving all materials gets inside the laser head and sticks to the laser lens. This is why the laser head should be cleaned after approx. 100h of service.
