LaserPecker 4 Laser Focusing Instructions

  • Updated

1. Why is Focusing Necessary?

For Laser engravers, lenses are often used to focus the laser beams. The laser the beam will be refracted or reflected when passing through the lens, its direction and focus will then be altered.

Without proper focusing, the laser beam may defocus, bringing unclear, blurry, or uneven engravings.

Proper focusing will ensure the laser beam gathers on the right point, concentrating its energy at the focus for high-quality engravings.

 

2. Focusing Range of LaserPecker 4

See the table below:

 

Electric Stand Only

Electric Stand with Riser Pad

Focusing Range from the Base Plate

124mm - 244mm

174mm - 294mm

Supported Material Thickness

0mm-94mm

24mm-144mm 

 

3. Focusing-related Values

LaserPecker 4's recommended focusing distance is 150mm.

Press the electric stand button to rise or drop 0.5mm.

press and hold for continuous rise or drop.

Note: When using add-ons like rotary extension or slide extension, their thickness will impact the focusing range. It's recommended to use a riser pad for correction.

 

4. LaserPecker 4 Focusing Principle

LP4 uses dual red lights for focusing. Next to the laser field lens, there are two apertures emitting the red light, converging at 150mm from the field lens.

Based on such a focusing principle, when both red lights hit the material to be engraved simultaneously, two red dots will be generated. If the material is exactly 150mm from the lens, two red dots will merge into one brighter dot, indicating successful focus.

 

5. Focusing Methods of LaserPecker 4

In practical use, three focusing methods are available based on different scenarios:

Red Light Focusing, Measurement Focusing, Protection Cover Focusing.

5.1 Red Dot Focusing

Adjust the electric stand's height to overlap two red dots coincide on the engraving material, based on LP4 focusing principle.

2. Measurement Focusing

Measure the distance between the field lens and the material to be engraved with a ruler, then adjust the height of the electric stand until the lens is 150mm from the material.

3. Protection Cover Focusing

Install the protection cover, and adjust the electric stand's height right until the cover's bottom reach the material to be engraved. Focusing is then successful.
