Problems with Autofocus

The Autofocus function moves the laser machine bed automatically until the material on the bed breaks the light barriers. If your table does not move or moves downwards there are some tips that


The processing table moves downwards.

Should the table move up instead of down when activating the Autofocus, the following reasons may be the cause:

  • The Autofocus sensor is dirty. To solve this clean the sensor according to the instructions!
  • The sensor is faulty. Contact Technical Support.

The processing table does not move.

Should the processing table fail to move when using the Autofocus function, the cause is the light barrier being blocked. This can be caused in the following ways:

  • There is processing material in the light barriers. Check the location of the material and move the table downwards if necessary.
  • The Air Assist nozzle of the laser head is in the light barrier. Check that the correct Air Assist nozzle is being used and check the position of the side Air Assist (Speedy 100 only). If you are using the long Air Assist nozzle, the focus will need manually adjusting using the focus tool.

The Autofocus still doesn't work?

You can still adjust the focus manually using the focus tool should the Autofocus not work. Contact your Technical Support team to fix the Autofocus.
