Can a laser cutting machine cut a galvanized sheet?

Can a laser cutting machine cut a galvanized sheet? Machining metal has become the main means of modern processing enterprises. Laser cutting uses a focused high-power-density laser beam to illuminate the workpiece, causing the irradiated material to rapidly melt, vaporize, ablate or reach a flash point while simultaneously passing a high-speed airflow coaxial with the beam. The molten material is blown off to cut the workpiece.

Galvanized sheet is a relatively common material using in the manufacturing industry. The galvanized steel sheet using to prevent the surface of the steel sheet from corrode and prolong, and the surface of the steel sheet coating with a layer of metal zinc. Mainly used in home appliance casings, civilian chimneys, kitchen appliances, etc., is this material suitable for laser cutting machines?

Generally for galvanized sheets, laser cutting machines can cut easily. Can using most organic and inorganic materials. Various metal materials commonly using in industrial manufacturing systems, regardless of their hardness. Copper, aluminum and alloy sheets are fine.

Cutting galvanized sheet

In the process of processing galvanized sheet, auxiliary gas needs to add. The purity and pressure of the auxiliary gas directly affect the quality of the cut sheet. The purity of oxygen used for cutting should be above 99.6%. When the purity of cutting oxygen higher, the section of cut galvanize sheet more quality . The roughness and quality higher, and of course the cutting cost increase. The purity of nitrogen should be above 99.5% when cutting. Increasing the purity of nitrogen ensures that the slit does not change color during the process of cutting the galvanized sheet.
