due to the key safety devices and enclosed laser pointer
(normal operation)
-
Laser source
Class 4 (US: Class IV)
-
Enclosed laser pointer
Class 2 (US: Class II)
WARNING
Laser radiation of Class 2 (US: class II)
For Class 2 (US: Class II) laser is short term exposure (up to 0.25 sec) harmless to the eyes
and can therefore be operated without additional protective measures. However it can cause
irritation of the eyes if the natural avoidance reaction (staring into the beam deliberately) or
eyelid closure reflex is suppressed.
-
Do not suppress the eyelid closure reflex.
-
Do not stare directly into the beam.
-
Close eyes, turn away.
-
Never look at the laser beam directly with an optical instrument, e.g. a lens.
WARNING
Laser radiation of Class 4 (US: class IV)
Exposure to laser radiation of Class 4 (US: Class IV) can cause injury to the eyes and skin.
-
The skin and eyes must not be exposed to direct or reflected or scattered radiation.
-
Wear suitable laser safety protection glasses.
-
When dealing with Class 4 (US: Class IV) laser machines, it is necessary to appoint a
trained laser safety officer to evaluate potential hazards and to ensure that appropriate
control measures are implemented.
It is the responsibility of the operator to comply with the national official and statutory
regulations for the operation of a class 4 (US: class IV) laser system or laser system with
a build in laser source of class 4 (US: class IV).

Safety
2.2.1.1 Class 2 (US: class II)
The accessible laser radiation of Class 2 (US: Class II) laser systems does not pose any hazard for
the skin. Diffuse reflections as well as any short-term irradiation of the eyes (exposure time
max. 0.25 sec) also pose no risk due to the low output power.
However, it is possible to suppress the natural eyelid closure reflex and stare into the class-2 beam for
a time long enough for the eyes to get injured.
2.2.1.2 Class 4 (US: class IV)
Class 4 (US: class IV) high powered lasers (visible or invisible) considered to present potential acute
hazard to the eye and skin for both direct and scatter (diffused) conditions.
Also have potential hazard considerations for fire (ignition) and byproduct emissions from target or
process materials. It is the responsibility of the operator of the machine to take appropriate
measurements to eliminate any dangers such as fire or explosions through the laser beam.
2.2.1.3 Precautions when dealing with a class 4 (US: class IV) laser machine
When dealing with class 4 (US: class IV) laser machine follow the following precautions:
-
According to BGV B2 „Laser Emission“, a competent laser safety officer has to be appointed
in writing to evaluate potential hazards and to ensure that appropriate control measures are
implemented.
-
The laser controlled area shall be posted with appropriate warning signs or warning lamps and
the area shall be defined to contain the laser radiation.
-
The laser controlled area must be protected against unauthorized access.
-
The operator of class 4 (US: class IV) laser systems always has to wear appropriate safety
glasses.
-

2.8.1
Specific hazards
Fire hazard
WARNING
Fire hazard
Fire hazard from gas and processing of inflammable materials.
- Do not operate the device without supervision.
- Keep CO2 fire extinguisher ready at hand in the immediate vicinity of the device.
If a main laser beam comes into contact with inflammable material, e.g. paper, the latter may ignite,
quickly leading to fire. Therefore, before switching on the laser and after deactivating the standby
mode you must make sure that there is no inflammable material in the path of the beam.
Furthermore, gases formed beneath the material being processed may ignite, especially if the
extraction requirements are not met.
The risk of flaming is increased in case of insufficient care and cleaning as well.
Additionally, regularly control the air cooling system on your laser. In particular, the filters and
ventilators should be checked regularly for proper function so as to avoid defects caused by
overheating.
2.8.2
Gases, fumes and dust
Depending on the materials being processed and the parameters selected, laser processing may
generate gases, fumes, aerosols or dust. Depending on the material, such by-products may be toxic.
In individual cases, the reaction products may be electrically conductive dusts. If these enter electric
systems, short-circuiting with personal injury and property damage may occur.
The operator is responsible for ensuring presence of a suitable extraction system and compliance with
the relevant guidelines in order to protect persons and the environment. The guideline VDI 2262 1-3
“Workplace air” provides, among other things, additional remarks.
The operator must also ensure that gases, fumes or dust do not settle on the processing lens. Any dirt
accumulating on the processing lens can lead to loss of performance, poor processing results and
damage to the device.

Optical components
WARNING
Damage to optics
Soiled optics absorb laser radiation and can thus be destroyed. Broken or damaged
lenses as well as thermal decomposition of lenses release particles which cause serious
damage to the health.
-
The passive reflectors and optics in the area of the beam guidance should be
cleaned regularly.
-
Special care is required when handling, attaching and cleaning these elements.
-
Do not exert non-uniform pressure.
-
Do not use tools or hard objects to clean the surface.
-
Never touch the optics with your bare fingers.
-
Never use cleaning tissues twice.
-
When lenses get broken, damaged or thermal decomposed follow the protective
measures.
-
Disposal according to regulations and laws valid in the users' country.
-
Lenses with scratches or penetrations must not be used anymore!
2.8.4.1 Scratched or destroyed lens surface
Be aware that scratches in the coating may release small quantities of thorium, which may be harmful
upon inhalation or swallowing.
2.8.4.2 Thermal decomposition
Upon thermal decompositions, vapors of selenium oxide and zinc oxide are formed. Upon inhalation or
swallowing there is danger of poisoning.
Indicators for thermal decomposition of ZnSe include deposits in the form of red or white powder and
an unpleasant odor.
2.8.4.3 Broken lenses
When optical components of zinc selenide (ZnSe) are destroyed, toxic dusts and vapors are formed
which must not be inhaled. The dust can additionally cause irritations of the eyes, skin and respiratory
tract.
If a lens has been destroyed during operations, care is to be taken during removal and cleaning.

Tables (multifunctional table concept)
Cutting tables
5.3.1.1 Aluminum slat / Acryl slat cutting table
The cutting table with aluminum slats is mainly
used for cutting thicker materials (up to 8 mm
thickness) and for parts wider than 100 mm.
Acrylics can be cut with no reflections by
exchanging the aluminum with acrylic slats.
One can reduce the number of supporting
points by removing slats individually, depending
on the
job.
5.3.1.2 Aluminum cutting grid table
This robust, universal cutting table is
characterized by extremely stable combs and a
long lifetime. It is particularly suitable for cutting
tasks with parts smaller than 100 mm, as these
remain in a flat position after the cut. Compared
to the cutting table the aluminum cutting grid
table has more supporting points.

cutting of thin acrylics with a thickness up to 8
mm. Like with the aluminum cutting grid table
parts smaller than 100 mm remain in a flat
position after the cut.
5.3.1.4 Honeycomb cutting table
This processing table is especially suitable for
applications that require minimal back reflections
and optimum flatness of the material, like for
example cutting films.
