It must be said that the development momentum of laser cutting machines in recent years is indeed rapid.
As the “darling” of metal processing in the new era, the laser cutting machine can be said to be the product of modern science and technology.
It replaces the traditional mechanical knife with “beam” and easily solves the troubles caused by traditional processing methods. It is a more efficient and high-quality processing method.
In 2019, many manufacturers of large-scale laser cutting machines emerged.
With the rapid development of the equipment manufacturing industry, CNC laser cutting machine equipment has entered a period of rapid growth with an annual growth rate of more than 30%.
Along with this, various laser cutting machine brands have sprung up.
The competition among laser cutting machine manufacturers is more fierce.
I believe that many people will be troubled by the choice when purchasing a laser cutting machine.
There is a need for flat sheet cutting, there is a need to do three-dimensional automotive interior parts or three-dimensional kitchen processing, as well as the need for professional cutting of pipe.
In short, different industries have different requirements for laser cutting.
But most people still believe in the brand effect when they buy.
So what are the outstanding laser cutting machine manufacturers in today’s mature laser cutting technology?
Today we will take a look at the top 15 brands of laser cutting machines in 2019.

The World’s Top 5 Laser Cutting Machine Manufacturers
#1：TRUMPF – Germany
#2：Bystronic – Switzerland
#3：TANAKA – Japan
#4：KOIKE – Japan
#5：Mazak – Japan
Let’s see the advantages and disadvantages of the laser cutting machine manufactured by the above brands.
TRUMPF & Bystronic
The structure of the desktop laser cutting machine manufactured by Trumpf and Bystronic is based on the CNC punch machine and shearing machine.
The advantage is that it is advantageous when cutting steel plates under 6mm, and the cutting speed and moving speed are relatively fast.
But the shortcoming is that the work surface is small, generally 1.5*3 meters or 2*4 meters.
If you cut a 6-meter or 9-meter long plate, you must cut the steel plate into several parts and then cut it on the laser cutting machine, which reduces productivity and material usage.
If the product materials are relatively single and in large quantities, TRUMPF is a good choice. The replacement of cutting head and the cleaning of the cutting lens is very convenient, but its manual operation function is not very easy to use.
In the manual operation, the Bystronic can be said to be a better one.
The processing parameter adjustment is more dummy. Relatively speaking, the average operator may prefer.
However, the manual adjustment method is not rich enough (for materials such as hot-rolled sheets whose quality is not very stable).
TANAKA & KOIKE
TANAKA and Koike specialize in gantry type large table structure laser cutting machine.
The advantage is that for the medium plate cutting, the work surface is relatively large (the length of the work surface can reach several decameters and the width can reach 3-6 meters)
For example, a 3*9 or 2*6 meter metal plate can be placed directly on the workbench for cutting.
The disadvantage is that since the laser generator is moving together with the machine, so it is very heavy, and when cutting a thin plate of 3 mm or less, the speed is far less than that of the desktop laser cutting machine.
The Japan’s TANAKA laser cutting machine is featured in cutting thick plate which can reach 30mm. It’s mainly used in structural parts processing. There are almost no opponents in the processing of large workpieces and thick plates.
The world’s most intelligent laser machine is Mazak’s, not only can cut 3D workpieces, but also special profile cutting and software. At the same time, it is equipped with devices, which can be tapped and chamfered after laser cutting.
