Hi, I am fairly new to this laser and cannot get it to cut through. I am able to engrave but not actually cut through the wood, I do not believe it is the power/speed settings but cannot figure out what I’m doing wrong. Please help.
Your profile says you have a 100w CO2, so I’m assuming you have a Ruida controller. You haven’t mentioned what you’re trying to cut, how thick it is, or what power or speed you’re using, so I’m going to take a few guesses:
If you’re cutting, especially if you’re going slow, it helps to set Min Power and Max Power the same. If you go slow enough, the only value used is Min Power
Make sure you are properly focused (Google how to do a ramp test if you aren’t sure)
Make sure you have your air assist running - cutting requires it
If you can provide a few more specifics, like what power & speed you tried, and a photo of the result, we can likely give better help.
