Maximum movement speed

What is the maximum safe movement speed for the laser head? I haven't surpassed 1500 mm/minute because I don't want to harm the steppers or anything. Is there a specific speed that is its maximum?


  • Hi Kyle,

    You cannot harm anything by increasing the maximum speed of movement.

    All that will happen is that you will start to lose steps (position) the faster to go and ultimately the motors will stall.

    We have tested the motors moving and changing direction up to 8000mm/min. This is well beyond the speed of the laser being effective.

    Apart from speed, there are also acceleration settings that can be altered. Acceleration goes hand in hand with how fast you can move your machine.

    The settings we provide have been optimal and there is nothing wrong with some experimentation if you are interested.
