My GF is strictly used for food products, mainly cookies. My problem is the time it takes to engrave a single cookie and I dont know if it’s the settings or the fact that a sugar cookie isn’t a PG material. There are no historical examples of food product testing so I’m in need of assistance to try to decrease my process time. Right now I’m getting 5 minutes a cookie and I’m sure the GF can engrave faster. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
What settings are you using?
You can increase speed by reducing LPI - the vertical resolution of the engrave. That may or may not give you the results you are looking for.
You could also use a vector image for designs like this, and score instead of engrave.
Scoring would be significantly faster than engraving. A defocused score line can be pretty wide.
Just wanted to say ‘Yum’.
I’ll have to try scoring this week. I’ll follow up and let you know how it goes. Thanks!
Another option to consider is to have multiple copies of the design in the same file, side-by-side.
If it’s taking 5 minutes to engrave one, it would likely take less than 6 minutes to do two side-by-side, etc. You would need to have careful placement, or use a jig, to line up the design.
