The High-quality Mode is a function in the JobControl® laser software. It takes only one mouse click to create engraving results of the highest quality. By focusing on quality, the engraving time is longer. The High-quality Mode can basically be used whenever you want a high-quality engraving and time is not a consideration.
In the High-quality Mode, the laser travels across the entire width of the job at the same speed marking only the defined areas for the engraving. That means that jobs are engraved at the same speed across the entire engraving surface. The result is a very even and homogeneous laser engraving.
When the High-quality Mode is not activated, the head usually travels at a higher speed but only over the width of the area to actually be engraved. The result is different exposure times and the material is engraved more deeply in some places.
Summary: Always activate the High-quality Mode when a high-quality engraving is desired and the length of the engraving time is not critical.
To activate the High-quality Mode, follow these steps:
- Open the materials database in the JobControl® laser software
- Open the drop-down menu under "Advanced" (right column)
- Put a check next to "Optimized quality". The mode is now activated.
We recommend always using this function when the focus is on quality. This mode should not be used when the engraving needs to go quickly.
Tip: Lower resolution saves time but lowers the quality
The standard recommended laser parameters on our website always have the High-quality Mode activated for optimal quality requirements!
