Question:

I have a problem with my laser machine, it don't work correctly. I want to cut 20*30 cm of wood or acrylic. The final part is not exactly 20*30(cm). It is about 21.5*30.5(cm). why ?

Quick Answer:

Most likely that the laser has an error in the configuration. The pulse unit could beset wrong. You need to adjust the pulse unit value and then download the new configuration to laser machine.

Complete Answer:

Most likely that the laser has an error in the configuration. The pulse unit could beset wrong. If the pulse unit is too small, then the motion controller will try to move more steps to get to the proper length. This results in passing the true measurement. You need to adjust the pulse unit value and then download the new configuration to laser machine.

An incorrect pulse value could have been left in the laser from using a rotary attachment device. A small error in length could be due to tightening the belts after maintenance. The pulse unit value should be checked after replacing belts.
