Adding shuttle to Laser
Adding a shuttle table to your Laser work center will reduce your handling time of your laser cut parts. To add this functionality to your work center, you will first create a Standard in your Standards Database. To do this, open your Standards Database and select "Add". I have called this "Laser Shuttle Table". Next set your standard time to allow sufficient time to load and then move into the laser. I have selected 20 seconds. After creating this standard, attach it to the work center. If you want the standard to automatically come in every time you select this work center, Auto Attach it. When the work center is added to your routing, the standard will add an additional 20 seconds to your time. If you have multiple parts on the sheet, open the standard and divide the default time (20 seconds) by the number of pieces on the sheet.
