Laser doesn´t cut like its supposed to

Hello,
I am starting with laser cutting and my laser power is far from what was supposed to.
And it doesnt cut with the same power in all directions and is flickering in Y direction
I have Neje A40630 which it says that cuts 4mm plywood with 100mm/min, 100% power in 1 pass, but mine doesn´t cut it in 3 with air assist.

thank you for answers.

You have to check your focus and your air assist, even if i suppose that your controller is not the best one for that module. I have the same module and this is one of my jobs with it

Do you actually have air assist? Or are you just checking the switch inside LightBurn?

Yes I have compressor with about 17 l/min.

OK. Just checking … some check the box in LightBurn, and figure it’s on … when it actually does not exist. (Yeah, you’d be amazed at how often that happens) :smirk:
