As the laser cuts through certain materials, you may notice a small number of flare ups. While not dangerous to you, it will scorch the edges of your material. To reduce this problem, Epilog includes the Air Assist assembly as standard equipment on all Legend Series systems.
Air Assist is most commonly used in vector cutting applications to remove heat and combustible gases from the cutting surface. By directing a constant stream of compressed air across the cutting surface, the possibility of flaming, scorching and charring is reduced when cutting materials such as wood, acrylic and rubber.
The Air Assist assembly can be easily connected to a standard compressed air supply (30 psi max) or the optional stand-alone compressor offered by Epilog Laser.
