Use Honeycomb Pins to Keep Your Laser Cutting Materials Flat

Use Honeycomb Pins to Keep Your Laser Cutting Materials Flat

When cutting with your laser, you will get the best results if the material you are cutting lays completely flat in the laser bed. One thing that I do every time I cut, even without warping, is to pin down the wood with honeycomb pins. This will flatten it out or keep it flat and help the laser focus to the right height. Another reason to use the honeycomb pins is if you are cutting something light weight, like cardboard, mat board, or chip board. This will keep it from moving.
