Updating the display of the processing time in JobControl®

Learn how to change the processing time display

The processing time for laser cutting and engraving is determined by the various colours in JobControl. A processing time is calculated by each colour that is used.
This calculation time is based on two things:

  • Speed
  • Passes

If these parameters are changed in the material database, the processing time must also be recalculated in order to be displayed correctly.

How to recalculate the processing time

Double-click on the processing plate to access the material database. Enter the updated laser parameters in the appropriate fields.

Now you can recalculate the processing time:

  1. Click on the current job on the plate.
  2. Click on the “Refresh” button (bottom left).

The processing time will recalculate.
