How to choose suitable gas and pressure for fiber laser cutter-Ariel

How to choose suitable gas and pressure for fiber laser cutter

How to choose suitable gas and pressure for fiber laser cutter.We will introduce this topic in this article.

During the laser cutting,we need choose different cutting gas according to different materials.

The choice of cutting gas and pressure have great influence on laser cutting quality.

Combustion-supporting and heat dissipation, timely blow away the molten stains produced after cutting,

and prevent cutting molten stains upward rebound and get into nozzle,and protect focusing lens,etc.

a) The influence of cutting gas and pressure on cutting quality

1) The Cutting gas help to heat dissipation and combustion,

blew away the molten stains, to get good quality cutting face.

2) When the pressure of cutting gas is not enough,cutting quality will be affected as follows:

Generate molten stains when cutting, cutting speed can’t meet requirement,affect production efficiency.

3) When the cutting gas pressure is excessively high will affect the cutting quality:

Cutting surface is more rough, and kerf is wide; At the same time will cause partial melting of the cutting

surface, unable to form a good cutting surface.

b) The influence of cutting gas pressure on punch a hole

1)When gas pressure is excessive low,laser will difficult penetrate the cutting board,

and the time length to punch a hole will increase,lead to low production efficiency.

2) When the gas pressure is too high, cause melting of the laser punching,

form a larger melting point, thus affecting the quality of the cutting.

3) When laser drilling,Generally use the higher gas pressure to punch the thin plate,

and for thick plate punching, using the low gas pressure.

4) When laser cutting machine cutting ordinary carbon steel,

the thicker the material thickness, the cutting gas pressure relatively lower.

And when cutting stainless steel, although cutting gas pressure not change with the thickness of the material,

but the cutting gas pressure is always in a state of high pressure.

In a word, when select cutting gas and pressure,we must adjust according to actual condition when cutting,

should choose different cutting parameters according to the specific situation in specific application.

The Equipment in the factory before delivery we will reserve two gas pipeline, oxygen and air using one utility piping,

nitrogen use a high pressure pipe. Two gas road respectively connect with gas pressure reducing valves, as following figure:

Reducing valve

Instruction of reducing valve:

The meter on the left shows the current air pressure, the right one shows the capacity of residual gas

“Attention” Nitrogen gas supply pressure should not exceed 20 kg

Oxygen supply pressure can not exceed 10 kg, otherwise easy to cause blowout of the pipe.

What is a laser cutter used for? -Amber

What is a laser cutter used for?

There are many materials that can be cut by a laser cutter: from wood to plastic, from steel to ceramic.

Let’s have a look for the wide range of laser cutting applications:

Aeronautic and Aerospace Aeronautic and laser cutting technology have always been closely linked. Remember, Boeing was among the first companies to use laser cutting technology for its engines in the 1970’s.

Aviation and space travel place indeed the highest demands on materials and technology: modern engines need to achieve an ever higher performance while, at the same time, reducing fuel consumption. Utilizing materials with improve strength and reduce density is by far the most efficient way to achieve this goal, and laser material processing has been proved suitable for these ambitions.

In aeronautic and aerospace, the powers of the lasers are in the order of few hundreds of watts to few thousands of watts. They are employ for the cutting and fusion welding of alloy and superalloy sheets, turbine engine deep hole drilling, repair of blades for gas turbines aircraft engines, on-the-fly drilling of de-icing panels and heat treatment of surfaces. Thanks to these techniques, the engines can operate efficiently at high temperatures.

Aeronautic and aerospace now even use ultrafast laser cutters. There are two types of ultrafast lasers: picoseconds (1×10-12 second) and femtosecond (1×10-12 second). Their extreme short pulse duration provides peak power reaching giga watts, enabling almost all kinds of materials to break down instantaneously under laser irradiation.

Tips:

• Improves the strength of the material but reduces its density.

• The processing is highly versatile: by tuning laser parameters, multiple tasks can achieve such as cutting, drilling, welding and cladding with a single machine.

Photovoltaic Panels

The making of photovoltaic panels requires several thin layers of conductive and photoactive materials. These layers are then structure, drille and cable together.

Lasers are use for edge deletion on thin film solar cells. To protect thin film solar modules from corrosion and long-term short circuits, the layering system at the edge of the module is removed and laminated. In the 2000’s, the entire solar industry converted to lasers in order to remove this few millimeters fraction of semiconductor material from the edges of the silicon wafer, which would otherwise lead to undesired short-circuiting around the edges.

During this process, the laser beam works at a speed of more than 700 mm per second, with a very low risk of short-circuiting. It is much more reliable than any other techniques on the market so far, better than sand blasting for example.  A second operation successfully accomplished by lasers when building solar panels is drilling solar cells. The laser works contactless and can get into position very quickly, without producing any mechanical charge. Thousands of holes can be drilled in a second.

Tips:

1. Creates extremely small and precise solar cells.

2.Inexpensive.

3.Very few time consuming.

4.Easy to integrate in the production line.

5. Contactless, precise and process-safe.

6.There is a very low risk of short-circuiting.

7.Much more reliable than any other techniques on the market so far.

Fashion

Laser cutter used to be reserved for haute couture designs, but the technology is now more readily available to manufacturers. It is now more common to see laser-cut silk and leather in ready-to-wear runway collections or at retailers such as Topshop or ASOS.

In general, laser-cutting works best on synthetic fabrics; the plastics in these textiles melt during the process, resulting in a sealed, perfect edge that will not fray. Natural fabrics on the other hand, are slightly spoiled by the heat of the laser, holding the fibers in place. This generally results in a discoloration at the edge of the cut, even if adjustments can  made depending on the fabric and the strength of the laser to potentially eliminate any marks.

Laser works also really well on leather. For example, the French saddler and designer Hermès has acquired several lasers in its workshops, and uses them to cut pieces in leather skin. The craftsmen can now cut four to five bags in one skin thanks to this precise technology, without losing as much of their precious and expensive material as they did when cutting with blades.

Tips:

*High Accuracy.

* Clean laser cuts.

* Sealed fabric edges to prevent fraying.

1. A unique machine can cut many different materials: silk, nylon, leather, neoprene, polyester, cotton…

2. Laser cuts made without any pressure on the fabric, no part of the cutting process requires anything else to touch the garment.

3.No unintended marks left on the fabric, which is particularly beneficial for delicate fabrics like silk and lace.

Robots, Drones and Electronic Fabrications

Laser cutter offers an efficient cutting solution for almost every material in the electronic industry.  For example, concerning MicroSD cards, laser cutting is three times more cost effective at comparable performance than water jet cutting.

Same goes for laser-cutting of circuit boards. When making cellphones and smartphones, laser-cutting is a powerful tool in every aspects of the conception. Lasers cut plastic boxes, drill the holes of the keyboard, for the different plugs, engrave the brand… The laser is even use to melt a plastic patch to protect the screen.  Drones and robots often require the use of laser-cutting as well, for the electronic components as for the pieces of the device.

Tips:

1. Beam deflection with scanning heads allows any complex contours that can  reprogramm to be cut in a short time.

2.As opposed to other cutting processes, the laser cannot wear out, which assures the continuous processing quality.

3.Sealed and neat edges.

Why is a fiber laser cutting machine in automotive Industry-Amber

Benefits of Laser Cutting in Automotive Industry

1. Clean and perfect cuts – no edge reworking necessary

2. No material fixation necessary

3. Extremely high level of repeat accuracy

4. Laser cutting and engraving in a single operation

5. No tool wear, therefore consistently high cut quality

6. High degree of flexibility in the choice of contours – without any need for tool construction or changeover

Advantages of Laser Cutting Machine in Automotive Industry

Putting its specific benefits and advantages aside for just one moment, cutting with a laser is one of the most used processes in the automobile industry, and any manufacturing industry for that matter. It involves the process of cutting materials and shapes down to size, and this is something that is widely use when it comes to creating intricate and complicated products.

However, laser cutting itself provides a unique alternative to other forms of traditional cutting that are on the market. Perhaps the biggest advantage is that users can deliver extremely precise finishes with smooth edges, heightening the end product and reducing material waste. Laser-based cutting also uses an extremely low power consumption, it has low maintenance costs, and can be used for multiple applications, reducing time wastage too.

Finally, it is one of the safest processes available. Laser cutting is required to be conducted in an enclosed, tight light box. Whereas more traditional and conventional methods see a free-running blade doing the cutting. While steps are taken to ensure that conventional methods are safe, laser cutting simply provides those in the manufacturing industry with one less thing to worry about.
