In the example above, without the use of OptiMotionTM, 7 distinct speed and power parameters are needed to minimize the job time. In contrast, if OptiMotionTM is enabled, only one parameter - the power to cut through the material - needs to be determined, and then OptiMotionTM does the rest.
In addition to OptiMotionTM providing faster laser processing results, substantial time savings are achieved because laser operators need not manually determine and assign the processing parameters for each job. For instance, if an operator can save 15 minutes per day by not having to input individual speed and power parameters, they can save 1 hour and 15 minutes per 5-day workweek. Annually, these time savings total 58 hours, which is more than a week per year!
