The manufacturer should have suggested settings for your particular machine, but this guide from Epilog might be useful:


The guide goes up to 120 watts, so for a 150 watt machine it's safe to say you can increase the speed from the 120 watt suggestion.

In any case, every machine is different and batches of materials can have different properties. The only way to get proper settings is to test multiple variations within a reasonable range of values and pick the one with the best results.
