One of the things we intend to do is put barcodes on all of our macbooks with this bad boy. It takes about 1:30 to etch on… Works great on a sample… It should take around 8-10 hours to complete.
That said, that’s a pretty mass run. Are there any concerns with using a printer all day to etch aluminum? Will it harm the laser or wear it down more aggressively versus wood? Is there anything to look out for or maintain as we are going along? Aluminum toxicity is also totally a thing on large scale projects. Do we need to wear a mask all day while running this or is expelling this out the door adequate for our protection?
What do you guys think?
