Learning about Fiber Lasers: On/Off Delay

Braden Todd is a second-generation glass artist, and the owner and creative force behind Glassmith2, located in Boulder, Colorado.

The on/off delay essentially helps the laser operator ensure that the engraving properly fills the objects outline. If the engraving fill starts before the outline, the laser-on delay needs adjusting. If the engraving stops after the object’s outline, the laser-off needs to be adjusted.
