I am trying to create electrical panel tags using a 3018 and the 455nm 5500mW laser on white on black ABS plastic tags.I would like the letters to be filled rather than outlines.
But I am having trouble getting the fill and line function to work in a predictable manner. I am running a bunch of test cuts and I just cannot seem to get these parameters to be good. either burns or doesnt penetrate. I just cannot seem to get this parameter dialed in.
Playing with the parameters, I’ve noticed that if I increase the speed and hold the laser power, The output is diminished - this tells me I do not have a clear understanding of how this function works. Can you point me to a thorough tutorial or something that explains this feature please? I havent been able to find one.
