Configure the engraver settings: Use the control panel or software provided with the Mecolour M10W to adjust the engraving settings. This includes selecting the appropriate laser power, speed, and resolution for the desired engraving effect. Consult the user manual for specific instructions on adjusting these settings.

Focus the laser: The Mecolour M10W laser engraver allows you to adjust the focal length of the laser. Follow the instructions provided by Mecolour manufacturer to focus the laser on the wood surface. This step is crucial for achieving precise and clear engraving results.

Position the wood: Place the wood piece securely on the engraving bed of the Mecolour M10W. Ensure that it is properly aligned with the engraving area and that it won’t move during the engraving process. You may need to use clamps or other securing methods to hold the wood in place.

Start the engraving process: Double-check all the settings and safety measures before starting the engraving process. Once you are ready, initiate the engraving process using the control panel or software provided with the Mecolour M10W. Monitor the process closely to ensure that the engraving is progressing as desired.

Finishing touches: Once the engraving is complete, carefully remove the wood from the engraving bed. Clean off any residual debris or dust from the engraved area.
