How to choose the right laser cutting machine?


With the continuous improvement of the requirements of the metal processing industry, the laser cutting machine with the characteristics of wide cutting range, high cutting efficiency and high precision has made it more and more widely used and has become the most popular processing method. At present, with the expansion of the industry, laser cutting machine manufacturers are gradually increasing, brand prices are also fiercely competitive, and the market is chaotic. How to buy a suitable laser cutting machine from many suppliers? XT Laser will share relevant experience with you.

Precautions for choosing the right laser cutting machine power:

1. Choose according to the material to be processed and the cutting thickness:

The power is selected according to the actual material to be processed and the thickness of the cutting, so that the model of the equipment to be purchased and the processing format can be determined, and it can be a simple pavement for the later procurement work. The application field of laser cutting machine involves many industries such as sheet metal processing, metal processing, advertising, craftsmanship, medical equipment and so on.

2. Choose according to the smooth cutting surface:

Whether the cutting surface of laser cutting has burrs or not is mainly determined by the cutting thickness and the gas used. There is no burr for cutting below 3mm. Nitrogen is the best gas, followed by oxygen, and air is the worst. The metal laser cutting machine has the least or no burrs, the cutting surface is very smooth, the speed is relatively high, and the material deformation is relatively small.

3. Selection of core parts of laser cutting:

The lasers and laser heads are imported or made in China. Imported lasers generally use more IPGs, while those made in China generally use Raycus. At the same time, pay attention to other parts of laser cutting, such as whether the motor is not. Imported servo motors, guide rails, bed and so on, because they affect the cutting accuracy of the machine to a certain extent. One thing that needs special attention is the cooling system of the laser cutting machine-the cooling cabinet. Many companies directly use household air conditioners for cooling. In fact, everyone knows that the effect is very bad. The best way is to use industrial air conditioners, which are dedicated for special machines. , In order to achieve the best results.

4. Power selection:

For example, most factories cut metal sheets below 6mm. There is no need to buy a high-power laser cutting machine. A 1000W laser cutting machine can meet the production needs. If the production volume is large, I worry that the 1000W efficiency is not as good as the high-power laser cutting machine. The best choice is to buy two or more small and medium-power laser cutting machines, which will help manufacturers in controlling costs and improving efficiency.
