"Beam on" hours

"Beam on" hours

"Beam on" hours

For Amada lasers, does anyone know what parameter or where to look to find the "beam on" hours? I have checked P# 6750(power on time) & 6754(cutting time) but neither one of those seem to be accurate. I know they are in minutes but I converted to hours and one machine seems like it could be correct, but the other is way off from the analog hour meter installed from the factory.

RE: "Beam on" hours

ur beam on time is ur actual cutting time it doesn't count traverse or moving time just when ur beam is on and cutting so you can run ur laser for 20 hours and beam on time only be 18 jus an example afro

RE: "Beam on" hours

I understand that. It just seems weird that out of 30,847 resonator hours(analog hr meter), my beam on time is only 9,031 Hrs. Power on time is showing 17,694Hrs.
