Step 3:

The most important step to correctly assemble a CO2 laser engraving and cutting machine is to setup the CO2 laser tube. So, pay special attention here.

1. Take the laser tube out of the package slowly, then put it on the laser tube socket at the back of the machine.

2. There are two ends of the laser tube. One is laser light out and the other is high pressure end.

3. If the laser tube has the plastic protective sleeve, please cover the protective tape. If not, please cover sufficient waterproof tape. On the laser light out is the water out, behind the high pressure end is the water in. The theory is “low in high out”.
