Updating the processing time display in JobControl® laser software

How to change the processing time display

The laser cutting and engraving processes are displayed in different colours within JobControl®. For each job a processing time is calculated, which takes into account the following parameters:

  • Speed
  • Passes

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

How to recalculate the processing time

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

This allows you to recalculate the processing time:

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

The processing time will then be recalculated.
