Do you know how a fiber optic laser cutter works? This tool allows cutting and marking metals through laser technology. Its profitability is exponential, since its technology allows the saving of electrical energy, and therefore, an economic saving.

If you want to know more about the characteristics of an optical fiber laser cutter, and all the things you can do with it, continue reading this blog:

1.- Energy and economic savings

The method of manufacturing the optical fiber laser beam does not require high demand for electrical energy such as a Co2 laser cutting machine, or plasma. An optical fiber laser cutter is one of the most accessible and economical technologies for generating metal cuts at an industrial level, with exceptional quality and in record time.

2.- Accessible maintenance

A fiber optic laser cutter not compose of elements that require expensive and complex maintenance, nor of external elements such as gas charges, or attachments. Such as: mirrors, glass, parts, etc. It only requires simple and accessible maintenance, in order to preserve the optical characteristics of the machine.

3.- Savings in gas consumption

The fiber optic laser cutter works with input gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. Which only help to expel the molten material and generate a perfect finish on the piece. In addition, fiber optic technology does not require mixing of gases for the generation of the laser beam, as is the case with the Co2 laser cutter.

4.- Laser cutting by optical fiber. Synonymous with versatility

Fiber optic cutting technology has among its main functions. The goodness of penetrating and cutting metals that other cutting methods are unable to perform. Clear example is found in reflective materials, which offer some resistance to cutting due to its property of “reflecting” the ray like that of a CO2. The composition of the laser beam by optical fiber is characterized by having a high density since its generation. Which implies that it can cut the aforementioned materials without running the risk of rebounding.

Another characteristic of laser fiber optic cutting is the ability to technically cut all metals (ferrous and non-ferrous). Since its high density allows you to make cuts in different types of metal without sacrificing the perfect finish and the speed at which it made.

Before deciding on a fiber optic laser cutter for your process, evaluate your field of application, operating costs and maintenance. So your choice will be the best.
