Boss Laser’s Mach4™ Servos

The quality of the drive motors in a laser cutter is crucial in determining the machine’s overall accuracy and performance. The drive motors are responsible for the precise movement of the laser cutting head around the worktable. Here’s how their quality impacts the accuracy of a laser cutter: 

PERFORMANCE = SPEED & ACCURACY

The quality of the drive motors in a laser cutter is crucial in determining the machine’s overall accuracy and performance. The drive motors are responsible for the precise movement of the laser cutting head around the worktable. Here’s how their quality impacts the accuracy of a laser cutter: 


Mach4-equipped machines can engrave up to 2,300mm/sec, over 5x the speed of most consumer machines and over 2x the speed of competitive “Pro-class machines. Our standard hybrid servos offer engraving speeds up to 1,500mm/sec, which is fast, but our new Mach4s are more than 50% faster!

5X ACCURACY:


Typical laser cutters/engravers have an accuracy of 0.01″, which is adequate for most consumer-level needs. Boss machines equipped with optional Mach4 servos offer an accuracy of 0.002” inch and a repeat accuracy of 0.001″. To put this in perspective, 0.001″ is only 25% of the thickness of a sheet of paper!

Conclusion:

In summary, the servo motor’s quality directly impacts a laser cutter’s precision, speed, reliability, and overall performance. Investing in high-quality servo motors is crucial for high-accuracy and precision applications. Mach4 servo drive system ensures consistent, reliable operation and can significantly enhance the quality of the final product in laser cutting applications. 

The enhanced accuracy is due to the new closed loop servo drive system and provides up to 5x the accuracy of our competitors.
