How to find suitable power of laser cutter
Different power in metal laser cutter, cutting capacity and cutting thickness range are not the same. Thus, how to choose its power? Here we take you to understand the understanding.
How the metal laser cutting machine works?
Fiber laser cutting machine metal laser cnc cutting machine has a more prominent advantages. It depends on the laser generated by the high temperature, melting the surface of the sheet metal parts, through the control of displacement, to achieve the purpose of cutting. The advantages of laser processing is mainly reflected in. It does not produce deformation, high degree of flexibility, small slot, smooth section without burrs, to cut any complex graphics workpiece. So, for different thickness, power on the cutting quality and speed plays an important determinant.
Samples Analysis of metal laser cutter power:
We take the common 500W-1000W, for example, for everyone to analyze:
Comparison of cutting process parameters between 500W and 1000W metal laser cnc cutting machine . Carbon steel, when it is lower than 2mm, the use of carbon steel. By 500W machine’s maximum cutting speed is about 6.6 meters per minute. When using 1000W machine to cut the maximum, the cutting speed is about 8 meters per minute; 6mm carbon steel 500W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 0.8 meters per minute, the use of 1000W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 1.6 meters per minute, and so on.
Next, stainless steel, for example, as shown in the figure, 2mm below the use of stainless steel 500W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 8 meters per minute, while the use of 1000W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 17 meters per minute; 3mm or so stainless steel 500W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 0.4 meters per minute, while the use of 1000W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 1.4 meters per minute, the gap is very obvious. It can be seen that the 1000W fiber laser cutting machine is clearly a more sensible choice when the opposite 500W and 1000W fiber laser cutting machines.
