Longest Cutting Time - E1 4 Watt Unit

Hello All,

Been away from the forums a long time while I’ve been getting into 3D printing but now picking up the laser mantle again.

Just a quick question for the tech guys, is there a safe limit that we should only cut for?

I remember the last time I cut MDF the laser was cutting for about 3 hours solid due size of object and passes and wondered if I may have damaged the unit.  I may order another 4w unit soon!

Currently building enclosure (on about version 6) with air assist and ventilation!

I have run my E1 for up to 8 hours or more for days at a time running large jobs. As long as the fans are working you wont have an issue.
