The laser cutting material and speed:Jill

The laser cutting material and speed

The laser cutting material and speed.

Firstly.The proper speed of the laser cutting machine can not only improve the quality of the slit.Also the slit is narrow and flat.And the deformation of the slit can also reduce.

Secondly.If the cutting speed is too fast, the cutting line energy will be lower than the require amount. If the slit is blown through the slit, the material cannot blow off quickly.Which will cause a large amount of back drag, affecting the slit. The completeness of the situation may even occur if need secondary processing.

Thirdly.If the speed of the laser cutting machine is too low, the cutting position will expose to the high temperature of the laser for a long time.Which not only causes the cutting seam to become large, but also may affect the appearance of the slit due to too much heat conduction. The phenomenon of hanging slag appears on the back of the metal.

Therefore, the cutting speed will affect the cutting quality, not only from the cutting speed.I hope everyone should be careful when operating the metal laser cutting machine.

Comparing with traditional cutting tools,how about the fiber laser cutting machine?

One is flexibility.

How can a laser cutting machine be flexible? Just how to cut it, it can cut the shape of the programmed program on the stainless steel, and the laser can cut in the direction. The shape can change flexibly by computer programming. The flexibility of laser cutting machines supports more and more individualize processes, reducing the number of molds.

The second is accuracy.

Comparing with traditional processing equipment such as flame cutting, plasma cutting, water cutting, laser cutting machine has much higher precision in cutting metal sheets. At the same time, different materials may undergo slight deformation during processing. The laser cutting machine can adjust flexibly according to these deformations.

So if you are in the field of metal products,you need it.

Whatever the furniture,industrial field,kitchen field,hardware tools.Fiber laser cutting machine can help you save cost.

When you ask about the machine,you need tell us.

1.What material want to cut?

2.What thickness?

3.Cutting area.

Fiber Laser tube pipe cutting technology

Fiber Laser tube pipe cutting technology.Next-generation production needs

We use tubes in countless medical devices and we add new ones every day. fueled in part by the growth of minimally invasive surgery and the commonplace use of stents. The sheer number and diversity of devices is rapidly increasing—and with it, the demand for more and more laser-cut stents; flexible tubing, needles; biopsy devices; and other minimally invasive tools.

Replace legacy cutting machine

Firstly, YAG lasers is for decades have been great workhorses.Cause they have performed well and been excellent manufacturing centers for many companies.

While we update many of these systems to fiber lasers. However they still have old stage sets that are a number of generations behind current technology. In addition, they are running on slow and aging controllers with legacy software.

Simply put, the laser, stages, controller, software, water systems. Here is a brief overview of improvements.It is enable faster and better cuts with higher production rates and less downtime.

Fiber Laser

The pulsed Nd:YAG lasers used in the past years. It has been superseded by fiber lasers with better beam quality that does not change with pulse energy and average power. This provides a smaller and more consistent focused spot size.Which offers tighter cutting tolerances, with spot sizes down to 10µm, the ability to cut much finer detail features. These lasers provide pulse frequencies up to and beyond 5kHz and pulse widths down to 20µs to enable energy input optimization for a wide variety of tube materials and wall thicknesses.

Fiber Laser tube pipe cutting technology

Now fiber lasers use microsecond pulses.It offers a cutting speed and edge quality that is sufficient for many applications. Fiber laser is very short pulse duration, combined with peak powers into the gigawatt level, offers a unique cutting capability. And also, the fiber laser has a fusion cutting mechanism, whereby the laser pulse melts the metal.It is then ejected from the part by high-pressure gas. The very high peak power of the fiber laser and a pulse duration that is shorter than the material’s conduction time creates a nearly pure vaporization mechanism. Since there is no melt creation during the cutting process, there is no burr, which is beneficial for such materials.

Fiber Laser tube cutting technology offer significant advantages and capability over legacy machines.It increases productivity and enabling product innovation with better process capability. Whether using the fiber laser, improvements to motion, controller and control software.It provide new capability for future manufacturing needs.

Why is the 12kw laser cutter so popular?-Oriole

Why is the 12kw laser cutter so popular?

Why is the 12kw laser cutter so popular?

     Why is the 12kw laser cutter so popular?

More and more manufacturers choose 12kw fiber laser cutter. Why is the 12kw lasre cutter so popular?

Since the fiber laser entered the application market, it has quickly occupied a large market share by virtue of its advantages such as good beam quality, high processing efficiency, and low operation and maintenance costs. After years of development, the fiber laser cutting market has become more mature, and new processes and new technologies have been continuously derived. It is especially obvious that the application power is getting higher and higher. At present, the power range of more than 10,000 watts has become the main battlefield of fiber laser manufacturers. And both equipment manufacturers and laser manufacturers are engaged in fierce competition here.

From the point of view of cutting speed, cutting 8mm stainless steel, the speed of 6kW is nearly 400% higher than that of 3kW laser cutting machine. When cutting 20mm thick stainless steel, the speed of 12kW is 114% higher than that of 10kW! It is conceivable that the speed of 40KW will increase by a higher percentage!

In terms of cutting thickness, the 10,000-watt laser cutting machine has increased the cutting thickness of stainless steel to 80mm.
From the perspective of economic benefits, the price of a 10,000-watt laser cutting machine is less than 40% higher than that of a 6kW machine tool, but the output efficiency per unit time is more than twice that of a 6kW machine, and it saves money. Less manpower! At the same time, the 10,000-watt laser cutting machine can achieve fast bright surface cutting of 18-20mm/s in the cutting application of carbon steel, which is twice the ordinary standard cutting speed!

Market demand has led many companies to enter the 10,000-watt laser market and produce corresponding 10,000-watt laser cutting machines. However, not all companies have the strength to produce laser equipment with “consistent quality and excellent quality”. The market is like a big wave. The only ones are fine products.

How to extend the use time of fiber laser cutter?

How to extend the use time of fiber laser cutter?

Like other equipment, when using fiber laser cutting machine, the laser in the equipment should be maintained regularly. This is the most effective and easiest way to maintain the laser. Otherwise, after a period of work, the power of the laser in the cutting machine will inevitably drop. When power drops affect production, the laser must be maintained. When the repair is completed, the cutting ability will be restored to the level of the factory.

2. Pay attention to dust

In the field of material processing, in addition to the equipment itself, there are often more dust and smoke, which will affect the cutting quality and cutting ability of the material.

3. Rail repair

In order to prolong the use time of the optics, the fiber laser cutting machine often cleans the guide rails, removes dust and other debris, and ensures the normal operation of the equipment. Remember to use lubricating oil after cleaning.

Auto focus fiber laser cutting head:Jill

Auto focus fiber laser cutting head

Auto focus fiber laser cutting head

Auto focus laser cutting head

Firstly,Comparison between the manual laser head and auto focus laser head.

For Manual laser cutting head,if the different thickness,then the focal length will be different.Then you need to adjust the focus,so that means,if you change the different thickness of stainless steel to cut.Then you need adjust the focus for every time,that will waste some time.

And the manual laser cutting head,if cut 5mm and 6mm stainless steel,the cutting time is longer.

For auto-focus laser cutting head,it has a built-in motor drive unit.Which drives the focusing lens through a linear mechanism to change position automatically within 17mm. Customers can set the program to achieve continuous focus that completing the rapid piercing and cutting material with different thickness.

The laser head has focus lens inside it, every focus lens have the focal length.If you find the correct focal length,then the laser power will be the strongest,and the cutting effect will be the best.

For manual laser head,that means,if you change the different thickness of the material,then you need to adjust the height of the laser head to find the correct focal length.And then you need to turn round the focus platform by your hand.

For auto focus laser head,that means,for the first time cutting,you need to find the focus ,then for any future cutting,the laser head will sense the thickness.And the motor move the laser head to up and down,to adjust the height by electric,not by manual.

Auto focus laser cutting head

Usually if your machine laser power is below 1500w,manual laser head is enough.

From 1500w, we will set one auto focus laser head to customers.That will help you to get a fast cutting.

If you also want a auto focus laser head for 1000w,750w and 500w. That is also no problem.

Anyone prefer to a great machine.Only you can undertake the cost.You make the decision.
