3. Installation
1) Install the EASYCUT 2.0 and insert the Dongle (USB key) to run the software.
Dongle (USB KEY)
2) Connect the data cable (232 port) with the computer.
3) Fill the water tank with pure water, place the water pump (aquarium) inside the
water, feel the water outlet and connect left one of the tubes with water pump. (There are
two pipes at the back of the RS3040A, they connect with laser tube to supply water
cooling), 10-20 seconds later, water comes out from right tube. Let the water circulate in
the water tank. The water tank should have at least 10 Liter clear water, and the water
temp should under 20 oC.
If fail to supply water to laser tube, the laser tube will burn out
quickly!!
Place the pump inside the water

2. Structure of the optical components
Ray path is ray guide system. RS3040A has adopted flying-optical system. The
complete system is made up of laser tube; four reflect mirrors; focus lens and relevant
adjusting devices. These are the main parts of the machine.
Ray path has close relationship with the effect of engraving and cutting.
Therefore please be patient and careful when adjusting the ray path.

3. Ray path adjusting
1) Reflect mirror adjusting
Stick a piece of paper on 1st reflect mirror, press “test” button and make a dot,
your must confirm the dot in the center of mirror; stick a piece of paper on 2nd reflect mirror,
press “test” button and make a dot, using adjusting screw of the 1st reflect mirror to make
the dot in the in the center of the 2nd reflect mirror; stick a piece of paper on 3rd reflect
mirror, then move the laser head to left coroner of the machine. Press “test” button and
make a dot. Then move the head to the right corner of the machine to make another dot.
Using adjusting screw of the 2nd reflect mirror to make these two dots totally matched
together; stick a piece of paper on 4th reflect mirror, then move the laser head to up
coroner of the machine. Press “test” button and make a dot. Then move the head to the
down corner of the machine to make another dot. Using adjusting screw of the 3rd reflect
mirror to make these two dots totally matched together.
Move the laser head to the anywhere, Press “test” button to make a dot. Then
move it to another position, make another dot. Make these two dots totally matched
together.

4) Turn on the laser power, and press “test” button to see if there is ray.
5) Use the arrow key to move the laser head, make sure that it can be moved.
6) Adjust the work plate, and fix up the focus length.
7) Operate the Easycut 2.0 in the computer to start work.
2. Shut down
Turn off the machine, blower fan, water pump.
V Cautions and maintenance
1. Safety cautions
1) It is forbidden to start the machine without grounding. The ground wire of
machine must be connected with the earth. It can not be connected on facilities such as
doors, windows, water pipes, and so on. The wire should be pulled to the outdoor ground.
2) Check the submersible water pump to see if it can let the water out each time
after starting the machine. It is forbidden to start the machine up when water can not come
out form the pump.
3) Operators can not leave the machine when it is working so as to avoid
unnecessary loss.
4) Water container should be a bit larger to make sure that there is at least 10
Liter water in circulation. The water temperature should be under 25oC. If the temperature
is too high, the water should be changed. It is better to use pure water so that here isn’t
any contaminant. Circulating water should be changed regularly (every day).
5) Because there is laser and high volt in the machine, non-professional workers
should not disassemble the machine without authorization.
6) Reflect mirror and focus lens should be wiped with special camera lens paper
or medical-use cotton wetted by mixture of alcohol and ether. Cleaning of mirrors and lens
should be done once a week. It is required that the grounding of all parts of the machine
and user's computer should be safe to avoid damage of machine and injuries caused by

ESD.
7) Blower fan must be turned on while working, so as to avoid pollutions on
mirrors and lens. It is forbidden to put any flammable and explosive articles close to the
equipment so as to avoid fire.
8) Any irrelevant total reflection or diffuse reflection objects can not be placed in
the equipment to prevent the laser from reflecting on human body or flammable articles
directly.
9) The water in laser tube should be drawn off in winter, in order to avoid ice
cracking of the tube.
10) When the machine is working, operators should examine the working
conditions (especially the water supply and temperature of circulating water, etc.) at any
moment.
11) The machine should be put in places where there is no interfere and harmful
effect of pollution, strong electricity, strong magnetism, and so on.
12) When the power supply is not stable, please don't start the machine. It is
suggested to use voltage regulator.
13) People who have not been trained should not use the machine.
14) Don't strike the keys and buttons strongly. Please press it lightly to avoid
damages of those keys and buttons.
15) In case there is damage or fire, please turn off the power at once.
16) Don’t start the machine when there is thunder or lightning.
Users should follow all the above mentioned regulations carefully.
Otherwise the manufacturer will not take responsibility for any troubles of the
machine or physical injuries.
2. Maintenance
1) It is forbidden to use circulating water of poor quality, because it may affect the
laser power seriously and shorten the service life of laser tube. The manufacturer is not
responsible for repairs and maintenance of damages of the tube caused by the using of
poor-qualified water. It is suggested to use pure water.
The minimum amount of cooling water should be 10L. Make sure that the water
can submerge the submersible pump.

2) Water temperature should be examined at all times during the working
process. Once the water turns to be warm, please change it right away (the right way of
changing the water is to get out of some hot water and fill in cold water).
3) If there is any particular requirements, the Current shouldn't be no more than
20MA, thus to avoid the tube becoming aged quickly.
4) Water tank, water pump and water inlet rubber tube should be cleaned once
every week.
5) Lens and mirrors should be cleaned once every day before starting the
machine (Notice: not at the time of being off duty).
6) Don't clean the reflecting mirror carefully when it is on the machine, otherwise,
the ray path must be readjusted!
7) When cleaning the 4th reflecting mirror and condensing lens, they must be
removed form the machine. After that, the mirror and lens should be fixed firmly but not
too tightly for fear of breaking up.
8) Please pay attention to the focus length before starting the machine every time.
If the length is not accurate, it will greatly affect the engraving effects.
9) Please clean the working plate every time after working. Don't make the dust
fly upwards.
10) Guide rails should be cleaned, and lubricant should be added onto the rail
every two weeks.
11) The outer equipments (blower fan, air pump, etc.) should be cleaned once
every two weeks.
