Laser Engraver Fire info sought
I am a Fire Investigator in the United States currently investigating a small fire involving an EleksMaker A3 Pro 2500mW Laser Engraver. I have been trying to do some research on the product that would aid in my investigation and cannot rely on chat forums or wiki for critical information. Would it be possible to have the following questions answered by one of your technical experts?
Is this product rated to cut through 1/8 inch thick (.118) transparent Acrylic Sheets? Or is it only rated for organic materials?
Is the laser powerful enough to penetrate the acrylic sheets and a green cutting mat (self-healing) placed beneath it?
If able to burn through both acrylic sheet and protective cutting mat beneath it, is the laser powerful enough to possible ignite a hard plastic folding table?
The laser was set for five (5) passes on the acrylic sheet. Could the acrylic have caused the laser to overheat?
Thank you for any information you could provide in this matter.
