Fly Cut

myCNC software allows for a fly cut in laser cutting/engraving when thin materials are involved. The laser is moved over the working material without stopping or braking the machine, but instead rapidly turning the laser on and off at the exact time required without having to split the cutting process into separate contours. This is done without sacrificing precision by synchronizing the cutting and movements commands on the fly, allowing for accurate positioning within a fraction of a second and drastic reduction of machining times. Unlike many conventional systems which begin to lose precision as the machine speeds go over a few meters/minute mark, the myCNC FlyCut solution allows for precision cuts of up to 0.1 mm at working speeds of up to 100 meters/minute.
