    The main cause was a loose mirror. Trotec support was great working with me through the process. Can’t say enough nice things about their support. Also a huge thanks to everyone on here that offered...

    Forgive my ignorance. The machine is new to me.

    How do you turn on and off high quality?

    I appreciate all the suggestions. Ill give Trotec a call in the morning. Was hoping to get it back online this weekend. It seems things never break during the week or when times are slow...

    Update looks like Trotec uses a rotary encoder. Took out the motor and encoder but couldn’t really get in to clean it well.

    Still has had the same issues. I did notice that if I slow it down...
  5. Trotec Speedy 400 Engraving not Lined Up Correctly

    Noticed an issue with the engraving on my Speedy 400.

    The laser seems to be losing track of where it should fire. It seems to be more noticeable as it moves between short and long strokes, but it...

    Just to be 100% sure you may want to do a quick check for chlorine in your particular material.

    Do this outside. Get a torch and heat a copper wire to red hot. Melt some of your material to the...

    I would also like to know to what extent our fiber lasers are just LEGO bricks that can be swapped out at will. How interchangeable are the galvo heads control boards and laser sources? Anyone have...

    Don’t have a machine like yours, but my understanding is that the gas flow rate and nozzle size have a huge impact on cut quality. Perhaps even more than power and speed settings.

    What I try to do is to make sure the 3rd mirror is pointing the beam straight down. Otherwise your cuts will not be square.

    I remove the nozzle and do a pulse into a scrap of wood at focus then...

    Since the laser is moving and firing in the correct places the controller should be fine.

    Did you clean or inspect the mirrors and lense?
    What about checking mirror alignment?

    You can do...

    It sounds like you have two separate issues.

    Skipping sections sounds like a controller or electronics issue. Check to make sure all your connections are tight and wires are not damaged.

    Nice thing about desktops is you can plug in all the drives directly.

    An SSD is without a doubt the best investment you can do to improve the experience of using any computer. However I would install it internally if at all possible. I have had good experiences with...

    The dongle might actually be the laser itself. Is it plugged into the computer and turned on?

    Your customer may be talking about liquid nitrogen. It’s normally cheaper than gas if you use large amounts every month but it does self vent to avoid over pressurization. I have never heard...

    I’ve got a 5200 with my 100w tube. It cools the laser faster than it can heat up in my Houston garage.

    Thanks Dave. Didn't see your response before. Appreciate the education. I will have to adjust power and speed to try to get a better looking result.

    I tried several more options and settings. The cause seems to be the laser power jumps up too high when starting to form the beam. I did a test with one direction engraving and only got the deep...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try different material and engraving orientations tonight. If I do one direction scanning I may be able to find out if the extra power is from when the laser turns on...
