How to Focus
E80 is a fixed focus module, the fixed focus position is 25mm away from the heat dissipation structure: as shown in the figure.
E80 is a quasi-industrial-grade fixed-focus module. Unlike CO2 lasers, the 450nm semiconductor laser is visible, and the intensity of weak light can be set. Observe the minimum focus by observing the fluorescence reflected on the surface of the gray cardboard through protective glasses Location.
NEJE E80 recommends using NEJE Max 4 equipment control, through variable Z-axis multi-layer sinking settings, cutting from the material surface layer by layer to achieve high efficiency purpose of cutting.
Operation steps controlled by the Z-axis: 1. Reset the motorized Z-axis in the direction of Z0; 2. Find the focus position of the module, and record the distance between the focus and the module; 3. Install the module on the motorized Z-axis, and set the focus position The distance to the honeycomb board is set as the electric Z-axis travel distance, (the distance from the module to the honeycomb platform = the distance from the focus to the module + the distance from the focus to the honeycomb platform), the lightburn software sinking setting parameters = Z-axis travel - material thickness, the first One knife focus is set on the surface of the material.
If the Z axis of your machine is fixed, it is recommended to adjust the focus to the upper middle position of the material when cutting the material, and repeat the cutting one or more times.
How to quickly find focus by observing low light？
1. Adjust the suitable low light through the software. The NEJE mode can be adjusted in the “Settings” column of the NEJE Win software; the GRBL mode can be adjusted in the “Grbl Configuration” of the laserGRBL software, which has been explained above.
2.Put a gray cardboard on the surface of the white material (such as plywood) as a focus reference to find the precise focus. A fine focal point can be observed through the protective goggles or the shade of the module.

Note: (Number of Passes - 1)*Z step per pass < 7mm (The standard air nozzle is designed for cutting less than 17mm. If you want to increase the cutting of materials larger than 17mm, you can increase the cutting thickness by replacing the plane protection head + metal air pipe.)
The NEJE E80 module adopts NEJE's unique hybrid technology. Compared with similar products, the NEJE module has a smaller focus angle and relatively uniform XY symmetry. It is the perfect work of NEJE after summarizing almost all 4xLD solutions. When using It can well prevent the material from igniting. However, too slow speed setting and unreasonable focus adjustment may cause the material to catch fire.
When cutting, according to the performance of the controller (synchronous belt equipment), it is recommended that the cutting speed be greater than 10mm/s to avoid burning the material caused by staying for a long time. NEJE E80 has very reliable continuous working performance and supports 100% power continuous working , but please pay attention to prevent the risk of fire. NEJE Max 4 door function can be used to extend the flame sensing and emergency stop, and terminate the equipment work.
About air assist
NEJE E80 is equipped with 2 high-temperature-resistant (1000°C) protective lenses, which can be replaced. Pay attention to regularly clean the surface oil and foreign matter according to the actual situation of use. Oil and foreign matter sticking to the surface may cause high temperature to soften the lens.
NEJE E80 can use 2 types of air assist. a. Conical air nozzle in the inner cavity, this method needs to use oil-free and water-free air source, (Note: ordinary oil-water filters can only filter simply, not completely, and need to be cleaned regularly built-in protective lens) b. Stainless steel pipe air nozzle, this method can use oily water air source, easy maintenance, and can quickly clean the lens, the metal pipe needs to be aligned with the focus.
When cutting mdf, leather and high-density materials, it is necessary to add air assistance with a pressure of not less than 30psi.
The air nozzle must be aligned with the cutting port to blow off the carbonized material, otherwise it will be ineffective.
When do you need air assist？
Air-assisted engraving or cutting can only be used for engraving or cutting that produces more carbonized substances. Generally, the depth of engraving is less than 1mm, and the cutting of plywood less than 2mm does not require air assist. A small fan can be used to blow off the smoke generated by the engraving. Air assist is not recommended when engraving images, and adding air assist at this time will destroy image details.
What kind of air pump is suitable for cutting
The main meaning of air assist is to blow off the carbonized material produced by cutting, and the general oxygener and electromagnetic inflator have almost no meaning. only the pressure of the oil pump and air compressor (0.4-1.5mPa) has the effect of blowing away the carbonized material. but it should be noted that the air of the oil pump contains oil and cannot be directly used for the air-assisted module of the closed cavity, otherwise the oil will contaminate the lens, resulting in power drop or damage to the lens. The air pressure of the air compressor can be used for a short time with the closed cavity, but When used for a long time, the water-containing gas will contaminate the lens, cause the power to drop, and even damage the lens.

It is recommended to connect other devices through the control board, and it is recommended to use the device with Z-axis control, which is conducive to the full performance of the E80.
Although this module adopts internal air-assisted design, long-term use may not prevent dust or a small amount of smoke from affecting the lens. It is recommended to clean the lens with a clean cotton swab. Dust or smoke may overheat the lens and cause the lens to burn out. Re-acquire the lens Will delay your use.
