Be sure to read the following safety precautions carefully be- fore starting to operate Beamo. Beamo uses a high-power laser beam. Improper handling can result in fire, visual impairment, skin burns, or inhalation of toxic substances, and other personal safety hazards.



User Safety

  1. All personnel who will operate the machine should read the safety precautions and follow the instructions. Confirm with FLUX Support if you have any questions regarding use and safety:

  2. Children require the supervision and assistance of an adult at all times.

  3. Operating environment:
    a. Place the machine in a well-ventilated area.
    b. Avoid rain, moisture, liquids, or direct sunlight.
    c. The ambient temperature should be between 5°C and 35°C (41°F and 95°F), and humidity between 10% and 75%.
    d. If venting outdoors, make sure that changing conditions do not cause extreme temperatures or humidity to affect the machine through the exhaust duct. Disconnect the duct from the outside air when the machine is not in use.
    e. Place the machine on a stable surface to prevent it from moving or overturning.


Electrical Safety

  1. The machine comes in 2 versions, 110V and 220V. Do not use a power source other than the AC rated voltage. If in doubt, contact FLUX Support. (110V: 100 - 127V / 220V: 200 - 240V)

  2. Make sure that the grounding pin is properly connected. If not grounded properly, static electricity might be generated that could affect performance and even increase the risk of electric shock.

  3. Do not use the power cord if it is damaged.

  4. When maintaining or disassembling the machine with the consent of FLUX Support, be sure to turn the power off and unplug the unit.

Fire Safety

  1. Do not put anything inside the machine that is not laser- compatible. Learn more about laser-compatible materials.

  2. Do not stack materials; for example, do not attempt to cut two or more sheets of material at a time.

  3. Clean out leftover debris inside the unit when it builds up.

  4. Never leave the unit unattended while operating; always keep it within sight. Look inside frequently.

  5. If there is a lasting flame inside the unit that does not extinguish after the laser has moved:

    a. Turn off the machine and pull the plug on the back of the unit.

    b. If it is safe to do so, extinguish the fire with a wet towel. Note that water may damage the machine.

    c. Alternatively, extinguish the fire with a fire extinguisher. Note that fire extinguishers may damage the machine.

    d. If the fire cannot be extinguished or if it spreads outside the machine, call your local emergency number.

Smoke and Fume Safety

  1. When exhausting outdoors, be sure that the exhaust location won’t be bothersome to neighbors or passers-by, and don’t forget to check local air quality regulations that may apply.

  2. If a strong, sharp smell -- that also causes eyes, nose, or throat irritation -- is detected, or visible smoke is escaping the machine while the lid is closed, stop immediately and recheck your exhaust setup.


Operation Safety

  1. Do not stare at the flame generated by the laser.

  2. Stabilize the unit to prevent it from moving or overturning.

  3. In case of burn injury, seek medical advice.

  4. Wear gloves when cleaning leftover debris.

  5. Have two people lift the unit when moving the machine.




The beamo unit is a Class 1 laser product containing an embedded Class 4 CO2 laser and a Class 1 laser diode. Because the Class 4 laser is fully contained in a Class 1 enclosure, this laser product is designated as a Class 1 laser product during all procedures of operation.
