Fiber laser cutting machine purchase tips-Teresa

Fiber laser cutting machine purchase tips?
In recent years, fiber laser cutting machine has been widely used in metal, sheet metal and stainless steel processing industries. The technology of fiber laser cutting machine is also quite mature. It has a very large market share in the cutting industry. But for many customers, how to choose a fiber laser cutting machine suitable for cutting their own materials, there are still many problems. The following is about how to buy a fiber laser cutting machine correctly.
 

Choose a company with good reputation and strength.

The fiber laser cutting machine is a large-scale equipment. It needs to be cautious when purchasing. Choose several powerful manufacturers to communicate in the early stage. Later, you can go to the factory to inspect, for the price of the machine, the training of the machine. Detailed negotiation with payment methods and after-sales services.

Determain your own needs

To take into account their own business scope, what materials need to be cut, the thickness of the material and other factors. And then determine the power of the equipment and the size of the workbench. The current cutting power on the market from 500W ~8000W. And the size of the workbench can be optional according to customer needs.

 Go to the market or online to find out about the consultation

After determining your own needs, we can go to the market or online to find out about the consultation. You can also go to the peers who bought the cutting machine to first look at the performance and basic parameters of the machine, choose several strengths and prices are also favorable. The manufacturer first conducts the preliminary communication. In the later stage, it can conduct on-the-spot investigations, and more detailed talk about the price of the machine, payment method, and after-sales service.

 Choose right laser power of fiber laser cutting machine

When choosing the performance of the laser cutting machine, we should fully consider our own environment. The laser power is very important. For example, we often cut metal sheets below 6mm, then we can choose 500W-1000W laser cutting machine. To meet the needs of production, if you cut more than 6mm of material, we need to consider the machine with a larger power, which is very helpful for the cost control of the enterprise.

 Pay attention to important components of fiber laser cutting machine

Pay attention to the selection of some important components of the fiber laser cutting machine, especially the laser source, laser cutting head, servo motor, guide rail, water tank, etc. Distinguish whether it is domestic or imported. These components directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of the laser cutting machine. Many domestic manufacturers use domestically produced fake accessories to deceive customers.

 Take after-sales service into account

The after-sales service of each producer is very different. In the after-sales service, the manufacturer should provide customers with effective daily maintenance programs, and have a professional training system to help customers. Solve problems as soon as possible.

 Warranty

No matter how good a laser cutting machine is, it will encounter various problems in the process of using the manufacturer. In the case of problems that the customer cannot solve, the manufacturer can provide the solution in time. Very important. This is also an important factor to consider when choosing a laser cutting machine.
The above is a summary of several purchase techniques for everyone. Hope it can be helpful. If you have any questions, please contact us!

How Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Works?-Teresa

Fiber Laser Cutting Machine

 

How Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Works?

Fiber laser cutting machine is a currently popular laser cutting type which adopts fiber laser source to fulfill perfect cutting effect. Fiber lasers are a type of solid state laser that is rapidly growing within the metal cutting industry.

A brief comparison between fiber laser vs CO2 laser

Fiber technology utilizes a solid gain medium, as opposed to a gas or liquid. The “seed laser” produces the laser beam and is then amplified within a glass fiber. With a wavelength of only 1.064 micrometers, fiber lasers produce an extremely small spot size. The size is up to 100 times smaller compared to the CO2, which makes it ideal for cutting reflective metal material.

Fiber laser source can output high-powered laser beam that focuses on the surface of materials, vaporizing or melting the focused area instantaneously. With numerical and mechanical system’s control, the laser head is moved and laser spot is also changed accordingly to achieve automatic cutting with fast speed and high accuracy. Fiber laser cutter has been developed into a highly precise laser cutting type. It is very popular in metal parts processing industries.

Work Versatility of Fiber Laser Cutting Machine for Metals

fiber laser cutting machinemetal laser cutting

Fiber laser cutting machine is able to process a wide range metal materials, including stainless steel, carbon steel, alloy steel, aluminum, galvanized sheet, copper, silver, gold and so on. Therefore, we should choose different laser sources according to metal features.

In addition to sheet metals cutting, fiber laser cutting machine also could process profiled metals and steel pipes. A set of steel pipe cutting system can be configured to the machine to broaden its cutting capacity. The cutting edge is neat and smooth to meet high industrial requirement.

Main Advantages of Fiber Laser Cutting

  • Fiber laser has higher energy conversion rate that can reach up to 30%, saving operation and maintenance cost.
  • Fiber lasers are designed with semiconductor modular and redundancy, and there is no optical lens in resonant cavity. So no need to spend much time starting and adjusting the machine before cutting work. This is incomparable among traditional laser machines.
  • Protective lens is configured in fiber laser head to protect focus lens and reduce parts consumption.
  • Laser head won’t touch the materials directly so as not to scratch the materials and ensure quality cutting effect.
  • Fiber laser produces the smallest kerf and thermal area, which keeps the cutting stability and avoid deformation of the material.
  • 02mm/min cutting accuracy and fast cutting speed markedly increases the work efficiency of metal parts manufacturing.
  • Fiber laser cutting machine works in a safe and environmentally friendly way. There is little pollution and noise producing and workshop environment will be safe.

Operation cost of carbon steel fiber laser cutting machine

As more and more industries increase the demand for laser cutting equipment, laser cutting equipment will face with new challenges. Especially, the level of requirements for crafts is getting higher and higher, and the upgrading of technology is very important. In some industries where laser cutting machines are not in contact, they have begun to put the fiber laser cutter into use. However, laser cutting machines are not omnipotent, some materials might be not possible.

Many people believe that fiber laser cutting machines can be equipped with different power laser, the cutting range should be very wide, the effect should be much better than other cutting methods. In fact, the cutting machine also can be classified with different types which can cut different materials. What are the mainstream devices in the market?

     

As we all know that being the mainstream of the cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine is the best choice to cut the different materials with the advantages of its wide cutting range, fast cutting speed, good cutting effect and maintenance-free in the market. Especially for the cutting of metal materials.

Although fiber laser cutting machines have many excellent features, there are still many materials that cannot cut. What materials cannot cut by fiber laser cutting machines?

First of all, we need to be clear that the fiber laser cutting machine belongs to the category of metal cutting machine, so we use it to process metal. But for the non-metal materials such as cloth, leather, it is not the better choice.

Secondly, the fiber laser cutting machine cannot cut the MDF, include fiberboard, wood fiber, and plant fiber, and some materials with urea-formaldehyde resin and artificial board made of adhesive. Because fiber laser cutting machine is belong to hot-processed. It will cause burning and burn the cutting edge, therefore it fail to meet the perfect cutting requirements. Therefore, these types of materials are currently not process with fiber laser cutting machines.

There are also some highly reflective materials. Since these materials are not within the ideal absorption range of these materials for the laser wavelength. The energy will refect to burn out the protective lens. Therefore, these types of materials are also currently not process with fiber laser cutting machines.

Fiber Laser cutting machine focus mirror-Jill

Fiber Laser cutting machine focus mirror

Principle of cutting machine focus mirror

Firstly,the principle.Using a convex lens. Cutting machine focus mirror focus a parallel laser beam into a focus.And then put this focus on the metal.And then this focus can melt the metal and cut it.This is the principle of focus mirror.This principle is like the magnifying glass.We use the magnifying glass against sun to shine and light paper.However,the energy of the laser is much higher than that of the sunlight!

 cutting machine focus mirror pictures

Secondly,for the laser cutting machine focus mirror,usually one flat side and one convex side.Besides,the convex side is facing up!As follows picture:

fiber laser cutting machine focus mirror

Position of the focus point

Thirdly,the laser focus mirror is a professional lens system. The purpose is that we make the laser beam form a uniform focus spot in the entire plane.It is one of the most important accessories for the laser cutting head. In the absence of deformation,the position of the focus point depends only on the focal length of the lens and the tangent of the deflection angle. Thus simplifying the calculation of the focus position.

 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.

Other parts

Focus mirror, ceramic rings and collimating mirror cost is not common quick wear part.
You just need arrange 1 set for spare.

In the end,XT Laser is not only a professional laser cutting manufacturer, but also offer good quality consumable such as focusing mirror, ceramic sheet, laser nozzle, etc., to old customers.

Fiber laser cutting machine maintenance in summer:Charry

Fiber laser cutting machine maintenance in summer

Fiber laser cutting machine maintenance in summer.

With the hot summer coming, the temperature is getting higher and higher, the laser cutting machine will face this new problem in the long-term work,especially in the high temperature area,the maintenance and maintenance of the laser cutting machine.

What are you paying attention to?

1. Change the pure water once a week.

When the water temperature is above 40 degrees,change the pure water.

Otherwise the laser source will work in a higher temperature,will influence the life time.

2, should pay attention to the cooling water temperature does not differ too much from the air temperature.

Because laser cutting laser and optical lens is to use water to cool.

We recommend the majority of laser cutting users set the water temperature to 30-32 degrees, control the cooling water temperature and The temperature difference at room temperature is greater than 7 degrees.

3, the summer temperature rises, the working pressure of the cooling system of the laser cutting machine increases. We recommend checking the internal pressure of the cooling machine before the high temperature comes.

And the equipment pressure of different manufacturers is not the same,so before maintenance Consult the equipment manufacturer specific parameters.

4, in summer, due to the higher temperature, the deterioration rate of cooling water will also speed up. we recommend users of laser cutting machines use regular distilled water or pure water, and regularly clean the scale to avoid causing the scale of laser and pipe to affect the laser power.

Different types of laser The method of cleaning the scale of the cutting machine is also different.

5Because the dust of the metal laser cutting machine is mainly metal powder, it is recommended to regularly clean the dust in the electrical cabinet of the laser cutting machine and check the working condition of the cooling fan.

If you have the fiber laser cutting machine,pls take care of it,he will bring you more profit.

cutting thickness of high power fiber laser cutting machine-Jill

What is the cutting thickness of high power fiber laser cutting machine

Nowadays,fiber laser cutting machine develops quickly.High power fiber laser cutting machine tech improves a lot.Big power cutting machine can cut max 36mm carbon steel. max 25 mm stainless steel.

But in order to guarantee the processing efficiency.We suggest cs cutting thickness lower than 25mm.SS lower than 16mm.

Thus we can have a best cutting speed and cutting precision.

Max cutting thickness

For big power fiber laser cutting machine,its max cutting thickness in industry application:

Carbon steel and Stainless steel

For cs,it is 36mm.(steel quality should be good,the cutting speed can be about 650mm/min ).

If 36mm steel metal quality is good and machine is well.The cutting draw is not complicated.The cutting quality will be very well.
For ss,it is 25mm. (use high pressure  as Auxiliary gas,the speed is slower.About 400mm/min)

1000w cutting machine

However,for carbon steel less than 10mm thickness,we can choose 1000w or lower power machine.

Cause the cutting width is very small.The width is  from 0.1 to 0.5mm.

The cutting precision is very high,lower than 0.05mm.

And the distance between the center of the hole is between 0.1 and 0.4 mm.

The contour size error is also between 0.1 and 0.5 mm.

Cutting section is Smooth.

The roughness of the slit is less than 25μm.After the work piece is cut, we can  directly weld it without further processing.

The advantage of high power laser  cutting machine

Generally speaking, We recommend a high-power laser cutting machine. Such as carbon steel sheets within 12 mm or stainless steel sheets within 10 mm.

High-power laser cutting machine has no cutting force, no distortion in processing.

no tool wearing, good material adaptability.

whether it is simple or complex parts, laser can be used for precision precision rapid cutting.

its slit is narrow, cutting quality is good, automation degree high, easy to operate, low labor intensity, no pollution.

automatic cutting and nesting can be realized, material utilization rate is improved, production cost is low, and economic benefit is good.
The above is the introduction of the cutting thickness of high-power laser cutting machine brought by Jill xt laser today. Everyone must pay attention to adopting the correct way when using it to ensure the efficiency of high-power laser cutting machine.

1.laser source

when choose fiber laser cutting machine.Firstly,it is laser source.This depends on ur budget and ur metal.

If ur metal is stainless steel,carbon steel or iron.U can choose Raycus and IPG.

If metal is high-reflective,u should choose nLIGHT.

 

For detailed difference between these three laser source,pls check the article:

 

2.High-reflective

So what is high-reflective metal?

Brass,copper,aluminum,galvanized sheet,gold,silver,etc.,

 

3.machine power(watt)

choose fiber laser cutting machine.Secondly,it is machine watt.This depends on the metal thickness of each kind of metal.

500w can cut max :6mm carbon steel and 3mm stainless steel

1kw can cut max:12mm carbon steel and 5mm stainless steel

4.Working area

Usually,most is 1500*3000 mm.

But some small model:1300*900 mm for lower than 1 kw.

600*600 mm for jewelry industry.

Also some customers need 2000*4000mm or 2000*6000mm.

 

5.Machine model

Some countries,their government do not allow open-type.Such as Germany,they should choose enclosed machine model. no matter the watt.

Usually,if machine watt is lower than 1kw or 1500w,we suggest open-type model.

If over than 1500 w,we suggest the fully enclosed machine.It is safer.

 

6.Machine body

This is the important part of cutting machine.There is three kinds of machine body. cast iron machine body.plate-welded machine body.Tube-welded machine body.

We suggest the plate-welded machine body.It is the most popular in the market.Even the top brand laser company use this machine bed.

For cast iron,there is some inevitable technical defect,so we think this is not the best choice.

how to choose aluminum cutting machine-Jill

how to choose aluminum cutting machine

We have met so many customers who want to cut aluminum.But they always know little about nLIGHT.Cause many supplies tell them IPG can cut well.Here we would like to tell u more about how to choose aluminum cutting machine.

1.How to choose laser source

if cut aluminum,u should choose nLIGHT laser source.Raycus and IPG is not the right choice.

Here is the reason:
For the fiber laser cutting machine, there are total 3 types :Raycus,IPG &nLIGHT.
please check this video of introducing nLIGHT laser source

nLIGHT , Raycus, IPG , are three popular band laser source in market,
Raycus and IPG are for normal metal, such as carbon steel, stainless steel.etc, not high reflective metal.
But some clients want to cut some high reflective metals, such as aluminium, copper, brass, etc.
If use Raycus or IPG to cut high reflective metal, laser source will alarm, and do harm to laser source and cutting head, because laser beam will return back to laser generator.

But nLIGHT laser source,American brand, it has Back-reflection isolation, so it can not only cut carbon steel, stainless steel , galvanized sheet .etc, not high reflective metal, and  high reflective metals, such as aluminium, copper, brass, etc.

For Raycus&IPG laser source, they are two common laser source in the market.
Raycus is from China, the best brand in China, it is high price performance ratio.
Nowadays more and more customer from different countries has acknowledged the position pf Raycus in the worldwide.
However, there are some customer who prefer the IPG laser source, such as India&Germany customer.
For india customer, it is because that there are point of sale in local market,it would be more convenient for them.
But for Germany customer, it is because the IPG laser source is from Germany ,it has wide acknowledgement in Germany market, then they like the IPG laser source.

For aluminum cutting machine,nLIGHT is the best choice.

 

2.How to choose watt

As for the cutting ability

1000w nLIGHT can cut max  aluminum :3mm

1500w nLIGHT can cut max  aluminum :5mm

2kw can cut max aluminum:8mm

3kw can cut max alu 12mm

Note:nLIGHT can also cut stainless steel,carbon steel,do not worry.

The advantage of nLIGHT is that it can cut high-reflective metal.

 

3.How to choose laser head

Raytools is the best and most popular in the market now.

If watt is above 1500w,we suggest autofocus Raytools.

 

4.Water chiller

There is Tongfei,S&A

Tongfei is the best.We suggest Tongfei.

S&A is for CO2 machine.
