I produced 144 Enforcer pistols, 74 Destroyer machine pistols, and 36 Annihilator sub machine rifles. According to the log kept by the laser cutter, here are the usage details to date:
|Machine On Time (hrs)||80|
|Job Time (hrs)||38|
|Laser Time (hrs)||31|
|X Travel (m)||6196|
|Y Travel (m)||2096|
Apparently I am only running a job for about half the time that the machine is on. The rest of the time, I am allowing the fumes to clear out, loading material, and removing finished parts. The laser tube has a rated life of 8000 hours, so I have only burned through 0.4% of its life on this project. The lens head has traveled 3.85 miles horizontally and 1.3 miles vertically.
Nobody else probably cares, but I find this to be interesting data. Then again, I am a numbers nerd.
