The screen as a "virtual laser machine"

By using JobControl®, you can utilize the size of your computer monitor instead of looking for your laser jobs in a mini display. By simply clicking on the screen with your mouse, you can move engraving jobs that have not yet been processed from the job list to any position in the virtual laser machine. Thanks to bidirectional communication, you can start the engraving job without leaving your workplace. In addition, JobControl® includes a large number of useful and intelligent functions that will make your work easier. Because your productivity is our priority.

The highlights of JobControl® at a glance:

Job favorites

Save laser settings (size, material, resolution, cut lines, etc.) for repeating jobs. This saves setup time and reduces the risk of errors.

WYSIWYG

"What you see is what you get". Check your print output with a true to original on-screen representation to avoid material wastage.

Autofocus

Exceptionally precise automatic focusing with just a single click. The engraving result, material thickness, focal length of the lens, cutting table, etc. can all be saved in the material database. The software calculates the correct position to engrave precisely at the focal point - through doing this, you can achieve optimal engraving results.

Job Management

Every job uploaded to your laser is saved in a visible list. From here, you can filter your saved jobs by name, date, process type, resolution, etc. It also means that all previous jobs can be repeated at any time with just one click.

Bi-Directional Communication

Your laser and JobControl® are in constant communication with eachother. Through using this feature, you are instantly able to check where your job currently is on the work surface, how it is progressing and you can also control your laser as needed.

Guides

Specially suited for extremely accurate work, position your job exactly where your material is on the table and easily avoid material wastage.

Duplicate and Rotate Jobs

From the queue, a job can be placed on the work surface as often as needed and in a space-optimized manner. You can also effortlessly duplicate and rotate jobs.

Marker

Magnetic positioning aids allow you to quickly and easily create your own job templates. These can be saved and used for recurring tasks.

Engraving Time Calculator

This feature gives an indication of how long a laser processing job will take, prior to starting the job. Allowing you to calculate and plan jobs more efficiently.

Photo-optimized engraving

Ideal for flawless and pin sharp engraved images.

Enhanced geometries

Cutting lines are transferred to the laser in perfect arcs/tool paths. This ensures optimum cutting results on all materials.

Material Database: The Heart of JobControl®

Predefined settings for different standard materials assist in achieving the best possible engraving and cutting results.
In addition, you can also save and manage your own materials.

Processing via Color Mapping:

Define processing settings such as engraving or cutting, speed, power level, number of passes, Z-offset, etc. by colors:

  • Automatic Z-Axis Control: Helpful for objects with different focal point positions.
  • Multiple engraving passes: Allows you to achieve the best possible engraving or cutting quality when dealing with sensitive materials
  • Webs: By interrupting the cutting line at defined intervals cut parts do not fall away from the raw material. This is very useful when producing entire stamp plates or filigree cutouts.

All settings are carried out in a single production step. No additional work steps are required.

Import/Export of laser parameters:

Easily import and export your material parameters for creating a backup copy or for use on another PC.
