    Default What are the best settings to use when engraving steel on a Trumpf L3030 TFL4000

    Hello,

    What are the best settings on a Trumpf L3030 TFL4000 to produce deep etching/engraving?

    This laser is a CO2 laser, this link has more information about the laser: CUTTING LASER MACHINE TRUMPF TYPE TC L3030 - TLF 4000 - USED YEAR 2001 - LIFT MA

    Currently at my company I was tasked with implementing engraving into our process flow. Unfortunately, no one at my company knows the best setting for engraving on our Trumpf L3030 TFL4000. I have contacted Trumpf on this matter but since we have a CO2 laser and not a fiber laser they were unable to assist me.

    Thank you

    Well If the company you bought it from can't help your in trouble. As Far as I know a CO2 laser won't engrave steel, you need a Fiber Laser for that.

    Our CO2 laser can engrave but we need it to engrave deeper.

    Tried a few test samples at different settings and this was the best that we came up with so far:

    Settings:
    Nozzle Stand Off: 0.31 in
    Laser Power: 400 watts
    Gating Frequency: 260 Hz
    Speed: 220 in/min
    Gas: O2 (Oxygen)
    Pressure: 2 Bar
