How To Select The Power Of Fiber Laser Cutting Machine?

Fiber laser cutting machine has outstanding advantages in sheet metal blanking. It relies on the high temperature generated by laser, melts and irradiates the surface of sheet metal parts, and controls the displacement through numerical control to achieve the purpose of cutting.

The advantages of laser processing are: no deformation, high flexibility, small slit, smooth section and no burr. It can cut arbitrary and complex graphic workpieces.

Then, for different plate thickness, power plays an important decisive factor in cutting quality and speed.

The cutting capacity and cutting thickness range of fiber laser cutting machines with different power are different.

Then, when selecting the appropriate fiber laser cutting machine, the configuration of the corresponding fiber laser cutting machine is usually selected according to the materials to be processed and cut.

How to choose the power of low, medium and high power fiber laser cutting machine?

Let me take you to learn how to select the power of laser cutting machine and the laser cutting wattage requirements.

How to select the laser wattage

The materials cut by the fiber laser cutting machine are metal, mainly stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, brass, etc.

The higher the laser power, the thicker the cutting thickness.

Laser Cutter Wattage And Cutting Thickness

The power mainly depends on the laser source. In the market, 2000W and above are generally referred to as high power, the power between 1000w-2000w is medium power, and the power below 1000W is referred to as low power.

In terms of current demand, the market has a large demand for 2000W fiber laser cutting machine, which can meet most cutting needs. The cutting speed above 2000W may be faster, but the price is also higher.

Laser power is one of the main factors that directly affect the price of laser cutting machine.

For thin stainless steel and carbon steel plates, low-power fiber laser cutting machine may be used to cut well, and at the same time, it can ensure high cutting speed, which not only ensures work efficiency but also saves cost.

Therefore, when purchasing laser cutting machine, we must reasonably choose according to our own metal materials and material thickness, and do not blindly pursue high power.

Of course, if you’re cutting both thick plate and thin sheet, and the demand for production capacity is large, the high-power laser cutting machine within its affordable price range is also a better choice.

Because by properly adjusting the cutting speed and changing the auxiliary gas, the high-power laser cutting machine can also control the cutting quality well.

Diversified products to meet the different needs of different users for fiber laser cutting machine.

  • Customers in hardware, kitchen and bathroom industries are mainly suitable for small optical fiber laser cutting machines;
  • Customers in advertising, sheet metal and chassis industries generally choose medium power fiber laser cutting machines;
  • Customers in aviation, aerospace, rail transit, automobile and other industries must choose high-power fiber laser cutting machine.

In general, the choice of high-power fiber laser cutting machine depends on the personal cutting needs of customers.

Example

Let’s take the common 500W-1000W as an example to analyze:

Comparison of cutting process parameters of 500W and 1000W fiber laser cutting machines.

Carbon Steel

I still take carbon steel as an example first.

As shown in the figure, the maximum cutting speed of carbon steel below 2mm with 500W machine is about 6.6m per minute, and the maximum cutting speed of carbon steel with 1000W machine is about 8m per minute;

The maximum cutting speed of 6mm carbon steel with 500W machine is about 0.8m per minute, the maximum cutting speed with 1000W machine is about 1.6m per minute, and so on.

Stainless Steel

Next, take stainless steel as an example.

As shown in the figure, the maximum cutting speed of stainless steel below 2mm with 500W machine is about 8m per minute, while the maximum cutting speed with 1000W machine can reach about 17m per minute;

For stainless steel of about 3mm, the maximum speed of cutting with 500W machine is about 0.4m per minute, while the maximum speed of cutting with 1000W machine is about 1.4m per minute, the gap is very obvious.

It can be seen that when facing 500W and 1000W fiber laser cutting machines, 1000W fiber laser cutting machine is obviously a wiser choice.

Precautions for selecting appropriate laser cutting machine power

1. It is selected according to the material to be processed and the thickness of cutting

Select the power according to the actual materials to be processed and the cutting thickness, so as to determine the model and processing format of the equipment to be purchased, so as to pave the way for the later procurement work.

The application fields of laser cutting machine involve many industries such as sheet metal processing, metal processing, advertising, technology, medical devices and so on.

2. Select according to the smoothness of the cutting surface

Whether there is burr on the cutting surface of laser cutting is mainly determined by the cutting thickness and the use of gas.

There is no burr when cutting below 3mm. Nitrogen is the best gas, oxygen is the second, 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 fast, and the material deformation is relatively small.

3. Selection of core parts for laser cutting

Is the laser and laser head imported or domestic. Imported lasers generally use IPG, and domestic lasers generally use Raycus. At the same time, other accessories of laser cutting should also be paid attention to, such as whether the motor is imported servo motor, guide rail, bed, etc., because they affect the cutting accuracy of the machine to a certain extent.

One thing that needs special attention is the cooling system of laser cutting machine – cooling cabinet. Many companies directly use household air conditioner for cooling. In fact, everyone knows that the effect is very bad. The best way is to use industrial air conditioner, which can achieve the best effect.

4. Laser wattage selection

For example, most factories cut metal plates below 6mm, so there is no need to buy high-power laser cutting machines. 1000W laser cutting machines can meet the production demand.

If the production volume is large and it is worried that the efficiency of 1000W is not as high as that of high-power laser cutting machines, the best choice is to buy two or more small and medium-power laser cutting machines, which is helpful to manufacturers in controlling costs and improving benefits.
