How to import laser parameters into the JobControl® database

Importing parameters is as easy as exporting them. Just follow the steps below, and JobControl® will be ready to start laser processing immediately.

If you are using Ruby® laser software, please find instructions on rubyhelp.com.

Step by Step

Open the material database

  • Open JobControl® on your computer
  • Select “Settings” → “Material Template Setup Ctrl+M”
  • The material database opens

Open the menu using the gear icon

  • First, click on the gear symbol, then “Import from File” and select the desired file.
  • If there are records with the same file name, you may create a copy or overwrite the existing file.


Our suggestion:

We recommend option 1 (create a copy), since this prevents loss of information. You can change the parameters later at any time.

Want to re-import the file to another PC?

You can also export the data from JobControl®. This guide describes the importing process step by step.
