Distance from laser head to working object
« on: October 10, 2018, 01:40:27 PM »
How far is the "ideal" distance from the laser head to the object ur burning on, my other laser has 4 cm over the object.

On the current one that's 1x1m i have the object 14 cm under, is that to far, my laser is 2500W.

if you are cutting, the further the distance the better as the change in beam width will be less. Regardless, it depends on the particular lens and the ability to focus.
