This first-of-its-kind event will bring together laser experts and users to explore how the desktop/compact CO2 laser cutters are being put to best use in small businesses, prototyping workshops, schools and hackspaces.
Laser cutting using compact and affordable CO2 lasers of the plotter style is perhaps the biggest single application area and represents the biggest share of the market by number of units. This workshop will provide useful knowledge about the technology, software, materials and applications available to sole traders, small businesses, hobbyists, teachers and students.
The modern compact laser cutter can be a very low cost machine. At this workshop, we aim to help users get the most from these machines - using them more safely and achieving a better quality result. For many people this type of laser will be the first one they will come across (in school, college or university) and the use of laser cutting and engraving allows a whole range of unique and innovative designs to be realised.
