Choosing A Kid-Friendly Home Laser Cutter Machine

By:Makeblock • 2020-03-19

Why All Home Laser Cutter Machines Aren’t for Kids.
Not every home laser cutter machine is great for kids. Some that are designed for adult use don’t have important safety features that can help protect kids from injury. This isn’t because they are unsafe machines, but manufacturers may assume that adults can follow safety guidelines that kids might forget or struggle to follow.
Some laser cutters for home also require advanced knowledge of programming to design cutting paths and use the laser cutting features. Older users who’ve had enough education and experience can use these machines without any struggles. But kids can’t be expected to have all of this knowledge. If they lack what they need to properly use the home laser cutter machine, they’re likely to avoid using it completely.
It’s best to look for laser cutters for the home that have the safety and knowledge level of kids in mind so they can explore and build their skills without injury or frustration.
Common Laser Cutter Hazards
When you’re considering the safety of a home laser cutter machine, there are a few risks to keep in mind.
Fires
Laser cutter machines for the home can be fire hazards. This most often happens when the laser cuts through the material and concentrates for long periods of time on the case bottom. This can damage the case bottom or the exterior case and start a fire. Most home laser cutters have metal cases, but fire is still a risk, especially if the power settings are too high or the laser cutter is left unattended.
