Laser Cutting Gap Correction
Aim of the cutting gap correction is the dimensional accuracy of the lasered object.The kerf correction is an element of the post-processing with laser cutting, a thermal separation process using a laser. The deviation which is caused by the cutting gap of the laser (≈ 0.004 in) must be compensated side properly before the output, in order to maintain a perfect object measure in the production.
The kerf compensation is comparable to the cutter radius compensation with the difference that the value range is 4/1000 of an inch.
Note: The job preparation with laser cutting gap correction is also possible with OptiScout Design. The output is then made with Front-End or Production.
Materials:Cork, acrylic, Dibond, foam, wood, leather, polycarbonate, polyimide, polyurethane, textile
- Selection of objects to be cut dimensionally accurate
- Definition of the compensation value in the corresponding OptiScout dialog
- The laser paths will be traversed optimized (see animation)
