Running cost of fiber laser cutting machine–cutting machine consumption
Fiber laser cutting machine consumption include 3 parts, electric power, auxiliary gas and quick wear parts.
Compared with other cutting equipment, fiber laser cutter should be the lowest.
1. Electric power
This is related to the rated power .
Rated power depends on the watt and machine model.
Real machine running cost occupy 60%~70% of whole power.
2. Auxiliary gas consumption
One gas tank is 40L in China.
A. N2 gas consumption is same for different thickness SS. Its consumption of continue cutting is about 20~30min/tank.
B. O2 gas consumption is decline when CS thickness increase. The thicker CS, the less gas consumption.
1mm CS cutting gas consumption is about 50~60min/tank.
10mm CS cutting gas consumption is about several hours/tank.
We recommend you use liquid gas, its cost will be much more lower then small tank. Most of our customer use it.
3. Quick wear parts
Main quick wear parts include nozzle and protective lens.
1st year their consumption is about 20~30 pieces per year, but the cost will be decline later.
As their consumption have big relationship with workers operation.
Nozzle 10usd/piece; Protective lens 15usd/piece.
So nozzle and protective lens cost is about 500usd per year.
4. Other parts.
Focus lens, ceramic rings and collimating mirror cost is not common quick wear part.
You just need arrange 1 set for spare, their total cost is 350usd/set.
