Hi Guys,

Any tips on how to set the tickle setting on a ULS-50PS?

It says to engrave a square on sensitive material (Anodized Aluminum?) and look for the shadow 1/2" away from the square. But does not give speed power or PPI settings. Thoughts?

I have played with it and it seems to make a difference to the intensity of the beam but have not been able to get a shadow to appear...

Nothing responds to heat better than heat sensitive paper-- find a receipt you don't need printed on heat paper and tape it down tight to some aluminum, use fastest speed and 1% power to start- it still might be too much heat, but if not, slow the machine down in 10% increments...

When tickle is set to high for certain materials it will show faint mark on left and right side of each line of text.
I used to have this issue with Rowmark plastic silver or gold metals. If you don't see any marks on these type of plastics then you should be in good range with tickle setting.

Are you having other issues that require changing tickle?
