Ive lost my touch!!

Ive lost my touch!!

Ive lost my touch!!

We got our laser repaired recently and now all my etching has gone to pot. IVe tried all the adjustments i know. Duty, Freq, Power, Feed etc. Im running a 4000w Amada fo3015. Does anyone else here have etching conditions they can post. we mostly cut GNL and P&O steel. thanks

RE: Ive lost my touch!!

try to find laserdog. He runs Amada's and is a wiz at them. He could help you out.

RE: Ive lost my touch!!

On what material and thickness?

RE: Ive lost my touch!!

This is laserdog I change my name to jjl1210. We have a part that needs a deep etch and I run it on an older 3015 and I use a feed of 80 1100W 500F and 30D with a nozzle gap of .05. You can start with this and change the feed rate until it's hard to see the etch when this happens I would increase the duty and freq by 10% until the etch comes back.
