Place the AERO+ Laser Rubber (5 mm) sheet on the aluminum cutting grid table. Ensure that the laser rubber is fixed in place, as you will need to vacuum the debris remaining after laser processing. There are two general techniques you can use to keep the AERO+ rubber sheet in place:
- Use tape to stick the sheet to the aluminum cutting grid table
- Use an adhesive mat (available online)
Cover the remaining work area on the aluminum cutting grid table to concentrate the vacuum suction force on the rubber sheet.
Afterwards, enter the processing parameters specified in the table below.
NOTE: The optimal processing parameters may vary depending on your laser system's available wattage.
Four-Pass Laser Engraving
In the JobControl® parameter settings window, set the Cut option to Skip. Afterwards, focus and position the laser head, and start the first engraving pass. After the first pass is complete, carefully and thoroughly vacuum the debris from the rubber sheet. Ensure that the rubber sheet does not move out of position. Repeat the engraving process three more times.
Note: Refocus the laser head before each subsequent pass, and also vacuum the rubber sheet after each pass.
Laser Cutting the AERO+ Laser Rubber Sheet
Once the engraving process is complete, activate Cut CO2 in the parameter settings window and skip the Engrave CO2 option.
