Conduct a pulse test and verify if the cutting laser powers on and fires.

  1. Put your laser safety glasses on. Place a piece of scrap material under your engraving and cutting laser.
  2. Turn the key to the on position.
  3.  Push the red (mode) button to arm the device.
  4. Hold the red button down 1.5 seconds. The cutting laser will power on and fire a laser pulse for a brief moment. It should leave a burn mark. 

You’ve now confirmed your cutting laser is working properly.
