How much air for Air assist?

Postby Dsthings » Thu Dec 01, 2016 10:11 am

I'm getting ready to install an air assist laser head on my machine and wondered how much what size air pump do I need. How much air do I want flowing all the time to make this work well? I've seen 40 liters per minute pumps is this enough? Do I need stronger? Any suggestions?

Thanks

Typical air pump for purging is around 120 - 140 l/min, preferably with a adjustable air assisted plug. 40 l/min flow seems a little bit slow.
