Defilm

Remove rust from the surface of carbon steel plates; Remove protective film from the surface of stainless steel.

Defilm Gas

The gas commonly used to remove the protective film or coating on sheet metal before laser cutting is typically compressed air or nitrogen. These gases are used to blow away the film or coating from the surface of the sheet metal, ensuring a clean and uncontaminated surface for the laser cutting process.

Delay time

The time between the laseron and the laser moving along the path. It ensures that the laser can burn through the pipe.

Delete Duplicate

Remove graphics that visually overlap until only one remains.

Delete Invisible

Imported graphics may contain visually unnoticeable small graphics, resulting in a small display size, or may be moved to an unusual position during processing. These can be removed using the 'Remove Invisible' function.

Deslag

There will be a ring of slag around the pierced hole. The cutting head can blow and go in a spiral to blow off the slag at a higher height.

Deslag

Deslag refers to remove the slag created by laser cutting

Divide

Letters are very large and require the font graphics to be cut out first and then put together again.

Divide long hole

For long holes in the Y direction, divide it into multiple holes, and the tool path uses a C-shaped co-edge to avoid pulling the tube in the Y direction.

Dodge

To dodge is to process a tube as much as possible and reduce the tail length. Two types of Dodge Cutting head dodge: the cutting head can skip the MidChuck and cut between the MainChuck(B1) and the MidChuck(B2). MidChuck dodge:The chuck(B2) moves forward over the cutting head, so the MainChuck is closer to the cutting head.

DryRun

The difference between the DryRun and the actual cutting is: the DryRun does not turn on the laser, does not turn on the gas. Used for a complete inspection and simulation of the overall machining without actually cutting.

Dynamic Array

End Alignment

The Z-shaped joint has a significant gap on the end face, making it difficult for the clamp to hold. By using the end alignment function, the cutoff line at the end can be added, as well as its MicroJoint , which facilitates the clamping process with the jaws.

end align

Explode

Explode Group = Ungroup. Break up the groups so that they can be operated separately. Explode polyline: Break a polyline into 'multiple straight lines'.

Frame

The cutting head moves along a rectangle in the machine area according to the graphic range.

FrogLeap

The lift motion of the cutting head is like a frog (while the Z-axis is lifted, the XY-axis moves simultaneously, improving the efficiency of the Travel).

Further Sort Path

For co-edged part groups, nested-in-hole parts are cut first and then the outer parts, regardless of the cutting order of co-edged toolpaths.

Gap

Not cut a section before reaching the end.

GasOn Delay

The same kind of gas is in the gas channal, and the time for the gas to completely fill the pipeline will be shorter than the other two delays.

GasOn/Off

Click [GasOn] to turn on the gas, and the background color of the [GasOn] button changes to green. Click [GasOn] again to turn off the gas, while the bottom color of the [GasOn] button will be gray.

Generalized Cutoff

A graphic usually has two cutoff lines, the first and the last cutting shapes of a part, which are referred to as the front cutoff line and the rear cutoff line, respectively. In addition to the front and rear cutoff lines, there may also be other cutoff lines, known as generalized cutoff lines.

Group

Intersect hole

Round holes in round tubes, when required for through-assembly, and its cutting in the round tubes will cause interference during assembly, so vertical cutting is required.

Island Cut

This is an island.

 

Jog cut

Join Segment

CAD drawings often contain graphics that are visually connected but actually not. They can be connected by Join Segment.

Knit

Fitting polyline shapes with smooth curves and reducing discontinuous turning points to improve machining speed.Knit precision: When the distance between the first and last endpoints of a curve is less than the Knit Precision, it is allowed to merge/knit them.

Knit parts

A length limit is required for a part of the tube(the length of the part at the tail/end cannot be smaller than a certain value), so parts are combined into one part.

LaserOn/Off

Use technique parameters different from those used in normal cutting for a short distance at the beginning/end of the cutting path.Early Laseroff: A short distance before the end of the path will not be cut. It is used to leave a gap for easy unloading.

Leadline

Add a small section to the starting point in the scrap area to ensure that the part is intact at the start. 2 types of leadlines: leadin: A leadline that starts cutting from outside the part. leadout: A leadline that continues out of the part after the part contour is cut.

Limit

2 types of limit

  • Hard limit: the limit position in a machine tool that define the safe machinging area.
  • Soft limit: the limit position defined in the software that machining is safe.

2 types of limit direction

  • Postive (+): X-axis + limit, Y-axis + limit
  • Negtive(-) : X-axis - limit, Y-axis + limit

Loading/Unloading holder

During cutting, the tube moves from A to B to be cut by the cutting head (shown as a triangle). The holder (shown as Y-----Y ) on the A side is called the loading holder, and the one on the B side is called the unloading holder.

 

Local shortest path

Multiple unclosed curves that are end-to-end or close together are prioritized for sequential sorting.

Locate and no follow

Follow is deactivated and only locate, aka Z-axis Control. The cutting head reaches the specified coordinates through Z-axis displacement.

Relief

For sheet metal parts, a small hole needs to be made at the right angle of the bend to leave a little space for bending. It is the Relief.

Replace with bend line

Replace the narrow seam with a bending line.

Replace with Circle

Circles drawn in CAD are recognised as polylines or similar circles when imported for graphical accuracy, making it impossible to FlyCut, so these are replaced with circles.

Replace with Cross

Replace with Point

Replace circular locating holes as isolated points that can be marked or perforated.

Return Mid

Return Zero

Move to the zero point of the graphic.

Reverse

Reverses the cutting direction of the selected graphics.

Ring Cut

Wrap around the ring when cutting sharp corners to cut a sharp point.

Round Corner

Make sharp corners into rounded corners for thick plates.

Seal

Short distance no lift

The cutting head does not go up in a short distance and moves to the start position of the next part. It is to improve the cutting effieciency and save time.

Short distance no probe

Smart LaserOff

Aka, Slag-free cutting.

It is a function that aims to reduce the unwanted residue or slag that forms along the cut edges of the material being processed.

Smart Piercing

BLT intelligent cutting head monitors the perforation process in real-time through sensors. Once a hole is pierced, it stops the perforation and immediately proceeds to the next piercing action. This effectively saves perforation time and improves production efficiency. Additionally, it helps to prevent issues such as blowouts, part scrap, and damage to nozzles or protective lenses that can occur when cutting starts before complete penetration of the hole. This capability greatly reduces the risk and cost associated with consumables.

Flash Piercing

Smooth Piercing

Smart Sort

According to the position of the zero reference and the nesting of the parts, the optimal cutting path is automatically set.

The options are By-part Sort and In-part Sort.

Smooth Line

Smooth Piercing

Smooth Pierce. By leveraging the advantages of a bus system, precise light emission is achieved in advance during the travel process, enabling fast piercing at high positions. This saves piercing time and enhances the efficiency of thin sheet metal processing.

Aka, Fast Cutting, Ultradynamic Cutting.

Flash Piercing

Smart Piercing

Travel

A distance that the cutting head moves from one cutting path to another.

It refers to the techniques or mechanisms employed to reduce or minimize unwanted vibrations during the laser cutting process. It is an algorithm to suppress jitters during the cutting process and improve the cutting result.

Weld kerf compensation

When cutting miter cut parts, the vertical cut will cause interference between two parts from being welded together. The section to be spliced will be compensated for the weld kerf, and TubePro will automatically adjust the tool path according to the wall thickness to release the interference.
