Say no to sticky tape

Please Note: Alignment Tool is compatible ONLY with BOSS LASER and Koenig Laser machines. It will NOT WORK with any other machine.

Until now, the only way to align mirrors on your laser machine was by sticking painter’s tape, burning a spot on it, and painstakingly try to figure how far off your beam is from the center. What a PAIN!

We have great news: You need not mess with sticky tape anymore…

We’ve developed a custom alignment toolset that clips right onto the mirror holders. Once attached, all you have to do is insert a piece of thick paper, or what we call the “target indicator” (pack of 30 is included), and pulse your laser.  The burn mark will show precisely how centered your mirrors are thanks to the crosshairs on the target indicator. If it’s off, turn the adjustment screws of the mirror to compensate.  Repeat the process until it’s perfect.

Viola! You are aligned with no sticky mess to clean up.

The process is essentially the same as aligning with adhesive tape, but much more precise and completely free of the mess.

Check it out in this instructional video:

 

 

Ran out of target indicators? You can make more from cardstock yourself, right on your laser. The template and settings are included in the links below. You can even print them out on an inkjet printer and cut them out with scissors if in a pinch. Or, simply order more targets from our store. They are sold in batches of 30 at just 67 cents each right here.

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  • Attach the larger bracket to 1st mirror to align your CO2 tube
  • Attach the same bracket to 2nd mirror to align 1st mirror
  • Attach the smaller bracket to the laser head that holds 3rd mirror to align 2nd mirror
    Insert it into a large hole, but DO NOT push it in all the way, just as long as it stays in it’s fine!
  • Finally to attach the 3rd mirror alignment tool (larger diameter than, remove lens hosing and insert tool instead).

What’s new in Latest Version 3:

We just added 3rd and last mirror aliment tool!  Now it’s a complete set that covers CO2 tube and all 3 mirror alignments!
The third Mirror Tool requires the removal of lens housing and it gets inserted in its place.

What will I get with my order?

With your order, you will receive 3 calibration brackets (one for CO2 tube and 1st mirror, one for the second mirror, and one for 3rd mirror) and 30 paper target indicators.  You can order these indicator refills at our site or make your own (see a download link to the template below)

All brackets are 3D printed (colors may vary) and while we keep a small number in stock it might take a day or so for us to make more depending on the number of orders and machine availability.

Target Indicator Template

Please use this link to download the template for making your own target indicators.

In the archive, we’ve included PDF, AI, DXF, RLD (RDWorks 8), and LBR (lightburn) files.

New!: PDF file allows you to make targets much quick by printing them on your printer and then using the “Print And Cut” feature in Lightburn (project “target_template_print_and_cut” is also included!)

We suggest using sheets of heavy card-stock paper.  Note: For different power lasers, settings will be different. For 60-65W machines we suggest the following settings:

  • Paper Engraving (crosshairs):
    Speed: 350 mm/s
    Power: 8% (check if your machine will fire at power this low)
    Mode: Dot  (Spacing 0.80mm, Time 3 ms)
  • Paper Cutting:
    Speed: 100 mm/s
    Power:20%
