Having fewer variables will help to find the optimum settings faster.
Not all metals use the same speed setting for Engraving.
When adjusting settings, a good rule is to adjust either the power or the speed.
keep the power setting as low as possible.
Power settings that are too high can melt and distort many materials.
Use default resolution for Engraving
Below are some baseline settings for engraving and cutting various materials. Even though most modern laser cutters provide crisp, clean quality consistent cuts each laser tube output varies slightly so the settings shown may need adjustment for your system. Clean laser optics also makes a difference in the transmitted laser energy. Take the time to clean and maintain the lens on your system to obtain repeatability.
Metals that are thick will require more heat energy and a slower speed setting. Softer metals like aluminum and pewter also require more heat energy and a slower engraving speed setting.
If the engraving washes off, slow the speed setting until the engraving bonds to the metal.
