LMC V4 FIB
Function: Fly, Fly2, HWStart, LongText, InputLock, InputWait
I am hoping someone may be able to assist with this inquiry. I'm very grateful that this forum has been created.
We have just purchased a machine with the above hardware config.
Our objective is to mark Poly-carbonate [injection molded, white] with very light grey text and logo data.
And by light grey, I am referring to the range of say 5% - 15% black.
It appears that these settings below are approximately what is required. Speed 1250 mm/s
Power 10 %
Frequency 25 KHz
My query is in relation to the PEN SETTINGS
In [attached] pic 1 you can see the "Pen No." in the dialog box on the left is set to #5, and the same Pen is selected in the dialog box on the R/H side
In pic 2 if I select Pen #15 [R/H dialog box], Pen #5 remains in the L/H box.
Ignoring that mods to the other configs, Speed, Power, Freq, if I ensure that those fields do not change, I DO observe a difference in the engraving.
If I also modify the L/H dialog setting and pick Pen #15, then I get a dramatic change, and don't see ANY fill.
Are the two PENS 'linked' in any way, and are they both supposed to be set the SAME. If so, should this occur automatically upon selecting either?
I have attached a couple of additional images which also show the discrepancy in Pen selection.
I will really appreciate any feedback I can get as I am behind a delivery deadline now.
Many thanks - Peter [Thommo]
