Laser speed
« on: January 05, 2017, 04:54:30 AM »
Hi,
I need to cut  paper for my business (christmas cards, marriage, etc...)
In order to optimise the cut time, is it possible to set 2 different speeds when laser cut, and when it travels between 2 cutting lines?

P.S.: sorry for my english, I'm french...

Welcome Sebastos,

It depends what software you are using, in T2Laser you can set the feed rate when cutting and the rapid feed rate when the laser is off (moving between points). It does help but the best improvement is to optimize the cut paths, in T2Laser there is a built in tool for this which can make a significant reduction on jobs with many objects.

I am not sure if BCL has the rapid feed rate (probably) but you can also change the sequence which will make it much faster.

I've never seen this option in Benbox so I can't comment.

Yes. I think the terms are "Cutting Rate" and "Traverse Rate".

Thank you for your quick reply!

I actually have Benbox installed, LaserWeb3 and the demos of BCL and T2L.
I 'll check this settings...

Welcome and yes, BCL can set the travel to a higher speed with the laser off than with it on.
