About

Kickstarter, meet beamo, the newest member of the FLUX family. Thanks to your amazing support, our first project in 2014 made the top 50 most funded tech projects ever on Kickstarter. Now we’re back with a product that makes all kinds of things possible.

FLUX proudly presents beamo, a powerful laser with the smallest footprint ever. This never-before-seen design marries cutting-edge technology with our trademark simplicity, maximizing quality and functionality. beamo packs in features you usually find only in industrial-grade laser cutters to give you outsized power to create something that you’ll love.

Equipped with a 30W CO2 laser, beamo easily cuts through tons of materials, leaving clean, precise cutting edges.

Engrave detailed patterns, intricate text, and beautiful images for gifts, home decor, or just for fun.

Narrower than the width of a human hair, beamo’s laser engraves with 0.05mm layer spacing. The high 1,000 DPI resolution will amaze you.

Explore new creative possibilities with hundreds of materials. Shape, cut, and engrave on a wide range of materials including wood, leather, acrylic, fabric, cardboard, stainless steel, anodized metal, glass, cement, and much more. beamo works on almost anything you can think of.

Bring your ideas to life with beamo and make personalized gifts for your loved ones, beautiful home decors, or transform your designs into a successful business. Our online community provides an enormous range of inspirations and resources to help you make amazing things. 

Now, this is a game-changer: while conventional laser cutters are bulky and heavy, beamo has the same footprint as four letter-sized sheets of paper and weighs less than 50 pounds (22 kilos). Its super portability makes it a perfect fit for your home, office, design studio, classroom, makerspace, or even the back of your car.


Our powerful software, Beam Studio, helps you create without limits. We’ve included many features common to professional graphics editing apps, providing a one-stop design experience. Edit text and vector files, modify bitmap images, align and layout objects, and use many other tools to bring your imagination to life.

At the same time, Beam Studio’s compatibility with JPG / PNG / SVG / DXF file formats makes it easy to just use the graphics editor that’s best for you -- Adobe Illustrator, Autocad, Inkscape, CorelDraw, or even Microsoft Word or Powerpoint.

Use the onboard HD camera to preview the work area and workpiece live on your laptop or phone. Just place your design exactly where you want, and get exactly what you expect. It’s WYSIWYG for laser engraving.

Use our mobile app, BeamCam, for an even easier creative process. Just take a picture, upload it using your phone, align the design, then let beamo do the rest.

Prefer drawing by hand? Easily transform your sketches into digital files by using our Smart Trace software. Smart Trace is also perfect for kids or students who love to draw or paint. Inspire them by engraving their work onto hundreds of objects.

beamo uses Wi-Fi for quick setup, file transfer, and status monitoring. beamo also connects over Ethernet and via smartphone hotspot. No matter where you are, beamo is always available.


Unlock beamo’s 3D potential with the rotary add-on, which allows you to engrave on curved objects like glassware and bottles by spinning the workpiece. This add-on also extends the maximum material height from 45mm to 105mm. This easy-to-setup module opens up a whole new set of creative possibilities. 

This add-on adjusts the focus according to the thickness of the material, enabling beamo to cut deeper in multiple passes. For example, the autofocus add-on enables beamo to cut 6 - 7mm wood in two passes, whereas normally beamo cuts up to 5mm in 2 passes.

Most laser cutters on the market use either CO2 or semiconductor lasers. CO2 lasers cut and engrave at faster speeds, while semiconductor lasers have a longer lifespan and can engrave on stainless steel without coating. So, why not have both? Our hybrid laser module attaches a semiconductor laser to the existing CO2 laser so you can enjoy the benefits of both. This module is currently under development,  we will share more information in future updates.

beamo has a built-in air assist system that channels air through the laser head directly onto the material to prevent the workpiece from catching fire.

While most laser cutters require external cooling, beamo features an integrated water cooling system, making it a truly compact machine. This closed-loop water cooling system circulates throughout the machine, keeping all components at the proper temperature.

The ventilation system takes in clean air to circulate around the chamber. beamo comes equipped with a powerful but quiet 340CMH (200CFM) fan and a 4.7" (12 cm) diameter hose to extract smoke and fumes through a window or vent.

beamo’s design prioritizes safety. The fully enclosed chamber prevents the laser beam from leaking out. Lifting the door during a task sets off a safety sensor that automatically pauses beamo. These safety mechanisms ensure that you’re well protected.







We have a passion for digital creation and making easy-to-use and affordable tools for makers and designers. Almost 2,500 backers helped us successfully raise $1.6M on Kickstarter for our first 3D printer, FLUX Delta, back in 2014. Having received numerous requests from our users for a more accessible laser cutter, we decided to take on this challenge and dove into the world of laser technology. After gaining substantial manufacturing experience from designing and manufacturing a 3D printer from scratch, we launched Beambox and Beambox Pro, two laser cutters that are powerful and intuitive.

Now, in pursuit of the same goal we’ve had since day one, we’re using our experience from FLUX Delta and Beambox to make something that will take digital creation to the next level. beamo is the laser cutter for everyone.

We’re proud to have connected with 5000+ users in 64+ countries around the world. Along the way, with the support of many backers, we’ve launched two products in previous years and released numerous software updates. We work closely with our customers to make sure that our products meet your actual needs. Join us today and start making amazing things!

Risks and challenges

We completed 2 successful Kickstarter campaigns and fulfilled all Kickstarter orders. This year, we're presenting our fifth product, beamo, which broadens our product line up and provides more possibilities to digital crafting.

beamo is classified as a Class 1 laser product, with full enclosure and safety mechanisms, such as lid-open detector and emergency power switch to ensure the safety of our users. We've passed the pre-test for CE and FCC, the goal is to pass the tests and get the required certifications by November.

Based on past experiences, we added some buffer-time to our timeline to account for unexpected difficulties. Since we've been shipping out small batches to local users, we're optimistic about production. We’re working with experts in this field, and we’ve also sourced backup suppliers to make sure that our production is smooth and efficient.
