Epilog Fusion M2 Laser Cutter (lasercutter)

Overview

Laser cutter in Exfab.

SNF staff.

This system is configured with two, 50 W lasers:  a CO2 laser, generally used for cutting (10.6 um wavelength, nominally 75 um wide) and a fiber laser, generally used for engraving (1 um wavelength, nominally 10 um wide).  The write area is 32" X 20", with resolution up to 1200 dpi.  This system can be used to engrave metal and cut wood, paper, plastic, and silicon.

The laser cutter is set up to print from CorelDraw X8 files, in vector mode, raster mode, or a combination of the two, as defined by the print file.  AutoCAD and other file formats can be imported into CorelDraw for printing.  CorelDraw X8 is available on the shared desktop kiosks at SNF.

Steps to become a tool user

  1. Become a member of SNF.
  1. Contact the primary trainer: .
  2. Read the relevant operating procedures:
  3. Shadowing: Contact a qualified user of the tool to arrange to ‘shadow’. It would be best to find someone who has used the system often. If you don’t know of anyone, you may check reservations or history to find a qualified user. You may also contact the Discussion Lists. We recommend that you be with the lab member for the full time while operating the tool and ask lots of questions during the shadowing. You may have to shadow a qualified user more than one time to be comfortable with the tool.
    Print the SNF Training Shadowing Form on clean room paper.
