Settings for Jetblack marking on stainless steel tumbler

Hello everyone, I am needing settings or a step in the right direction. I have a QS-30 from cloudray and I am needing settings to get a jet black finish on a stainless steel tumbler on the rotary. I’m either getting extreme ugly burns or kind of dark but burns the edge around the engraving area finishes. I’ve tried various settings on both my F160 and F290 lenses. My settings are based around 500 S 100 P 50 F with a .005 lpi (all in focus). Please if anyone could recommend me some settings to put me in the right direction that would be most appreciated. Thank you!

To fast to high. And on focus

Speed 50 mm/s

If you getting sparks or sound to hard then your not out of focus enough.
Normally 1 pass will be enough

If its done right you cant feel the engraving :wink:
