I have a Chinese 60 watt laser (1200mm tube) The machine was purchased in April 2021 and has had very light usage.
I use the Cohesion3D Laser Board (Smoothie) and light burn software. I installed an mA Meter. I have my laser power (on machine not software) at 45 and the mA meter never goes over 20ma
Water cooling CW5000
I have have used this no more than 75 hours in total (this is a really small part of my business which I wanted to increase for Christmas)
So very little use
This has been working like a charm, no problems at all until yesterday
It seemed to be missing parts of a fill (always the same parts) and the meter at some points showed no current at all even at 20% which is what its normally run at
I have added a couple of pictures for you to look at. Not sure why but the line lasering seems ok but fill is just not working correctly
I really do not know much about electrics so if thats an issue I need to be very careful
I am not sure if this is a tube issue (hopefully not) a power issue board issue or a software issue
One of the lines on the picture did not complete due to I turned the extraction air on and it stopped the laser
I have placed the product in all different parts of the machine and the result is always the same the parts that do not get lasered are always in the same place which leads me to think this is not a tube issue as its not random, could be the board or the power supply but as its not random does that knock the power supply out of the equation?
I have put this question on a couple of forums with no real outcome that is conclusive
Looks like I may have posted here already if so please accept my apologies
