Hi dear lightburn community,
as you have already helped us out multiple times, maybe you can help us with our newest and biggest problem yet. We recently reached a breaking point where a second laser became mandatory. We were using a 80W chinese laser and tried to find a second one identical to ours. The new laser came with a TopWisdom Controller, so we switched it to a Ruida RDC6442. At that time support for TopWisdom was not implemented yet. Now our problem is, that the laser tube seems to have power differences to our first laser, so we are not able to use the same settings on both machines. The laser tube does not produce a beam under 20% power withe the same machine settings as the first and seems to be less powerful than the first one overall. We did some cutting tests on cardboard and the second laser was just able to cut the corners, but not the straight lines with the same settings as the first.
Maybe some of you already encountered similar issues and might present their solution to the problem. What we want to know is, if it’s a harware issue caused by the tube / controller / mainboard or if this can be fixed through the software?
We already thought about lowering the power settings to adjust it to the second laser, so we can use the same layer settings on both machines, but we wanted to hold back on that solution to the end.
I will attach two pictures of the Tube Specs. If any of you need more informations about our machines, feel free to ask, we will try to provide any piece of evidence to tackle this issue.
Thank you in advance
