Laser parameters for high-quality engraving results
Here are some tips & tricks on how to find laser parameters that will help you achieve the best engraving and cutting results. Additionally you can update your JobControl® material database with our list of laser parameters.
Best practices and techniques for laser parameters
What do the laser parameters mean?
What are the actual laser parameters such as power, speed, ppi, Hz, pass, Air Assist, z-offset? Parameters for laser engraving and laser cutting are briefly and simply explained here. [more information]
How to find the optimal laser parameters
Determine optimal parameters for laser engraving and laser cutting. Find out how you can quickly and easily determine these for the perfect engraving and cutting result. [more information]
Determination of laser parameters with the grayscale matrix
Read here how you can quickly and easily determine the appropriate laser parameters using the grayscale matrix. [more information]
How to find laser parameter with marking software SpeedMark
We show you different ways to define the correct laser parameter for your marking tasks. Find the correct parameter for laser marking metals, coated materials of plastics. [more information]
Determining laser parameters without the opportunity for testing
Update your JobControl® material database with our list of laser parameters. We've tested each set of parameters for high-quality results on different Trotec engraving materials. We provide you with two different parameters for each Trotec laser materials group: One optimized for quality and one optimized for speed.
How it works:
Choose your laser machine and laser power in the list below
Download the parameters by clicking on "Download" in the JobControl® parameters column
Import the xml-file in your JobControl® laser software
Please note: These parameters are approximate and may vary depending on the application. Please test them before starting production and make adjustments if necessary to obtain your desired engraving or cutting result.
