Running cost of handheld fiber laser welding machine
Nowadays handheld fiber laser welding machines are becoming more and more popular. Laser welding offers travel speeds that can be five to ten times faster than TIG welding and three to five times faster than MIG welding in some applications. It’s a good alternative to resistance spot welding in many applications. The main power includes 1kw, 1.5kw and 2kw. In this article XTLASER will share the running cost of fiber laser welder with you.
Running cost of handheld fiber laser welder
The running cost of handheld fiber laser welding machine mainly includes 3 parts: power consumption, quick wear parts and auxiliary gas.
1. Power comsumption
In fact, we usually use 50%-60% power to weld the metals.
1kw total power consumption is 7.5kw. The real power consumption is only 3.8-4.5kw/h.
1.5kw total power consumption is 8.5kw. The real power consumption is only 4.3-5.1kw/h.
2kw total power consumption is 10kw. The real power consumption is only 5-6kw/h.
2. Quick wear parts
Quick wear parts for handheld fiber laser welder are only protective lens and copper nozzle.
Protective lens: lifetime is 240 hours, about 40-50pcs per year
Copper nozzle: lifetime is 360 hours, about 20-25pcs per year
Better environment, better operation, longer using time.
3. Auxiliary gas
The gas mainly plays a protection role, its consumption is very small. Nitrogen (N2) or Argon both are OK. But for materials easy to be oxidized, Argon is better. The gas can isolate the air from the welding plate to prevent reaction with the air. So the welding surface of the metal plate will be white and beautiful. The gas also can protect the lens from welding dust.
