So, here i am again with my rubbish motion system about to revisit card/paper cutting issue tomorrow. Thought i’d ask for advice, maybe someone had this worked out already.
I have terrible issues with head movement above 30mmps, vibration in motion. Cant really do anything about it as serious mechanical reworking is needed to fix this nonsense, but hear me out.
Machine is 80W.
Cutting paper requires little power (can do) and fast speed (absolutely cannot do). I want to force machine to slow cut paper by moderating power using perforation mode to prevent overburning/charring/catching fire. Kinda like superfast pulse beam. Is it something that can be done with good outcome ?
I will be trying this tomorrow, this is a preemptive question, maybe someone weighs in with something constructive, besides “fix your damn laser”.
Usually cutting 3-5mm materials no problem, accellerations were set for that, but my previous trials at paper were woeful… I lower acc/decc too much - machine becomes super sluggish.
