Auto focus laser cutting head of Fiber laser cutting machine-Eliza

Auto focus laser cutting head of Fiber laser cutting machine? How to implement?
Auto focus laser cutting head.

As you know, fiber laser cutting machine has many advantage. The cutting precision is high. Cutting surface is smooth. No need to deal with the surface after cutting. Cutting effect is good. No matter it is thin or thick metal. However, the focus point also influences the good cutting effect. Good focus help good effect. So, what is the focus control?
If you know machine well, you must know that.

When cut different thick metal. In order to get a good effect. We need to set the different focus point on the different position.

Such as:

For thin carbon steel, we set focus point on the surface.

Thick carbon steel, we set the focus point over the top surface.

For stainless steel, we set the focus point below the bottom surface.

This is what we call the focus point.

Auto focus? Adjust the height?

At the first period of machine development. We adjust the focus mainly by manual.

With the development of laser, more and more choose auto focus laser head.

Maybe some customers have confusion. Inside the cutting head, it fix the light path. If we adjust the height of laser head, it is to adjust the focus? When we lift the laser head, the focus point is higher. When we lower down the laser head, the focus point is lower. However, the truth is. It is not that simple.

Bottom of cutting head is nozzle. During the cutting process, the distance between the nozzle and cutting piece surface is about 0.5-1.5 mm. So we see this as a fixed value. So we can not change the nozzle height. We can not adjust the focus by lifting and lower the laser head. Otherwise machine can not cut.

Use a motor to drive focus lens

The focus of focus lens is fixed. So we can not adjust the focal length to adjust the focus point. If we change the location of focus lens, we can adjust the focus point. Lower the focus lens, so the focus point is lower. Up the focus lens, so the focus point up. This is surely one way to adjust the focus. We use a motor to drive focus lens to be up and down. So we can achieve the auto focus.

With the auto focus function. When we produce the different metal. Different thickness, machine can set the focus. To the most suitable position with a high speed. Thus can improve the cutting efficient. We can also reduce greatly the perforation time for thick metal .

So, for laser cutting machine. The auto focus function is an important and indispensable function.

Fiber laser cutting machine. The auto focus function, not only can achieve the automation goal. But also significantly improve the processing efficiency.

We can reduce the perforation time for thick metal. For the different material and different thickness. The machine can automatically set focus on the most suitable position.

If budget is enough, we suggest auto focus. It can help u reduce so much time.

Details of CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine.–Oriole

Details of CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine.

Nowadays, more and more people majoring in wooden artware or other products making. With the technology developing so quickly, a lot of them choose CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine to finish their work.

In order to let you know more about CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine. Here share some details about with you.

What can the machine do?

CO2 Laser Engraving and Cutting Machine

CO2 Laser Engraving and Cutting Machine

CO2 laser cutting and engraving machine can cut and engrave wood, leather, pvc, acrylic, etc.

Is there any protection device for the machine?
Our machine has cover protection (when the front cover of the machine is opened, the laser will stop working), emergency stop switch (in an emergency, you can immediately press to cut off the power of the machine), cooling system protection (if the laser tube cooling system has a problem, the laser Will stop working), all doors on the machine can be locked with a key, which is more safe and secure

To amplify the power, can it be achieved by only using a high-power power supply or replacing a laser tube with a higher power?
No, it need to change the laser power supply and laser tube at the same time.

For example, a 60watt laser power supply can only support the work of a laser tube up to 60watts. If you only replace the 80watt laser power supply without replacing the corresponding laser tube, it will generate a certain current pressure on the 60w laser tube, which will affect the life of the laser tube. Make an impact. On the contrary, if you change to an 80watt laser tube without replacing the corresponding laser power supply, it may be impossible to drive the laser tube due to the low current. (In addition, if you replace a larger wattage laser power supply and laser tube, the chiller must be replaced with a larger model. It is also necessary to consider whether the laser tube box can fit a larger wattage laser tube.)

Any need please contact us at any time.

How to improve quality of your fiber laser cutting machine?-Teresa

How to improve quality of your fiber laser cutting machine?

Metal laser cutting machine, as we all know, the most important advantage of it is that it can greatly improve the cutting accuracy. However, many customers have such problems during the actual use process. That is, only pay attention to the cutting speed, which will lead to the product quality can’t be effectively controlled. So how to ensure the quality of laser cutting? Let XTLASER tell you.

1.Preparation before cutting

In order to improve the cutting quality, it is necessary to carry out scientific and reasonable cutting design, review and repair the drawings before cutting.

2.During cutting

During the cutting process, in addition to adjusting the relevant parameters of the machine according to the material thickness, your operator should pay attention to the cutting quality of the sample. The batch cutting shall be carried out only after the sample printing quality is qualified enough.

3.Correct adjustment of focus position

Adjust the position of focus according to the material and thickness of the cut. Usually thin carbon steel below 5mm, with zero focal length and focus on the surface of the workpiece, aluminum, stainless steel and other workpiece focus on the surface of the workpiece, when cutting thick carbon steel plate, the focus is on the surface of the workpiece.

4.Adjust assist gas pressure data

When cutting at a faster speed, the stability of gas pressure has a great influence on the cutting burr. According to the data parameters,  the best gas pressure can be adjusted to ensure the quality after cutting.

In fact, no matter how high-tech the machine is, it can’t work it self without operator. So it is necessary to remind the operator or engineer of customers to learn how to use the machine from XTLASER. Or if customers have any problems with machines, please feel free to contact XTLASER.

Save more cost by fiber laser cutting machine-Teresa

Save more cost by fiber laser cutting machine

Save more cost by fiber laser cutting machine.

Comparison of energy consumption between fiber laser and CO2 laser.

Fiber lasers have short-wavelength characteristics that increase the absorption of the beam by the cutting material.

And can cut materials such as brass and copper as well as non-conductive materials.

A more concentrated beam produces a smaller focus and a deeper depth of focus, so that fiber lasers can quickly cut thinner materials and cut medium-thickness materials more efficiently.

The CO2 gas laser system requires regular maintenance,the mirrors require maintenance and calibration, and the resonant cavity requires regular maintenance.

The fiber laser cutting solution requires virtually no maintenance.

Comparing with CO2 cutting systems, fiber cutting solutions are more compact and have less impact on the ecological environment, so need less cooling and energy consumption is significantly lower.

The CO2 laser needs to be adjusted before using the light. The condition of the optical path will directly affect the cutting effect of the workpiece. Therefore,need to adjust and maintain the optical path manually regularly. The thermal lens effect of the YAG solid-state laser is obvious and needs frequent maintenance. The optical fiber transmission of the fiber laser is free of adjustment. It is maintenance-free, highly stable and easy to operate.

The photoelectric conversion rate of the fiber laser is more than 30%.

And the photoelectric conversion rate of the same power CO2 laser cutting machine is about 10% to 15%.

The photoelectric conversion rate of the solid laser is 3%.

The fiber laser consumes only 20-30% of the power of the same power CO2 laser, and the overall cost is lower.

By comparison, the fiber laser cutting machine works more efficiently under the same conditions, and the cutting effect is better, maintenance-free.

If you do not know which is suitable for you,we could help you.

Laser Cutting Steel/Laser Cutting Aluminum Problems – Elena

Although metal cutting operations traditionally employ mechanical or manual processes, laser cutting can be a viable, effective, and cost-efficient option for metal fabrication. Laser equipment is distinct from other cutting machines in both design and application. For example, laser cutters do not make direct contact with material, rely on high-energy power sources, have tighter cutting tolerances, and are generally automated to maximize precision.

Development of laser machine is very difficult. Unlike standard-grade or carbon steel, aluminum and stainless steel are light-reflective and heat-conductive metals. So it can be difficult to fabricate them using a laser cutting process. A possible solution for laser cut aluminum and laser cut steel, involves the use of a higher power setting coupled with compressed gas technology. Using gases in conjunction with cutting operations is fairly common. Nitrogen and oxygen assisted laser cutting machines can shape aluminum and stainless steel at relatively high capacities and with quality edge finishes. However, higher electricity consumption and the cost of peripheral equipment. Such as gas or air filters, can increase expenses for these systems.

Research and Development

Many organizations, such as the Laser Institute of America and Laserlab Europe. Conduct ongoing research to determine the best standard practices and optimal laser applications for a range of materials. Likewise, laser cutting head specifications are continually being revised and adjusted to improve the quality of laser piercing and the cleanness of laser cuts. As laser cutting systems continue to improve in their capacity, production rates, and cost-efficiency. More steel and aluminum laser cutting applications are likely to appear.

Main functions of 3D fiber laser marking machine-Lisa

Main functions of 3D fiber laser marking machine-Lisa

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laser marking machine have very fast development nowadays, we can see 2D laser marking machine have very wide application in so many fields. But the disadvantage of 2D laser is it can only work on the flat surface. With the help of rotary device, we can use it mark some cylinder, such as cup. Even in this case, it have many limitation on curved surface marking. So 3D fiber laser engraving machine rise in the market.

3D Fiber Laser Engraving Machine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3D means Dynamic focusing, compare with ordinary 2D laser machine, 3D laser marking machine use different galvo head. Ordinary 2D scanning head only have two mirrors, but 3D scanning head have three mirrors. The third mirrors can move forward and backward. This is the key technology of 3D laser marking machine.

Except scanning head, control card and control software is the brain of laser markers. One good control software will make complex operation become very easy. Most company will development the software together with scanning head.

1. Curved laser marking

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3D laser marking machine have three main application. include curved laser marking, emboss laser engraving large format laser marking machine.1. Curved laser marking

This type 3D laser’s working size usually under 300*300mm. We can use it mark curved surface and ball surface. Different with rotary marking, 3D curved marking have very high precision and working speed is much more faster. It is same with normal flat marking.

2. Emboss laser engraving

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emboss laser engraving is same popular with curved laser marking. we can use it make many art crafts, gift, mold etc. Its main application is deep engraving.

Although 2D laser machine can do deep engraving, all depth is same and in same leveal. 3D laser engraving can reach different depth and the performance seems like three-dimensional pattern.

3. Large format laser marking machine

 

 

 

 

 

We know the max working size of 2D laser marking machine is 300*300mm now. But many people need do large working size. With 3D laser marking machine, usually its working size can reach 600*600mm. As for bigger size, it need customized scanning head.

Although 3D laser marking machine have many special application, its price also is higher now. Most customers can’t accept it. With the help of development and price decreasing, it may become same popular with ordinary laser in the near future.

What are the advantages of 3D laser marking machine? lisa

What are the advantages of the 3D laser marking machine?

 

First, a larger range and more elaborate light effects

3D marking uses a front focusing optical mode that uses a larger X, Y axis to deflect the lens. Thus allowing for a larger laser spot, better focusing accuracy, and better energy efficiency; if 3D marking is in 2D marking When working with the same focus accuracy, the marking range can be larger.

Second, can mark objects of different heights

3D marking can quickly change the laser focal length and laser beam position, making surface marking impossible for 2D possible. After using 3D, the cylindrical marking in a certain arc can be complete at one time. Which greatly improves the processing efficiency. Moreover, in real life, the surface shape of many parts is irregular. And the advantages of 3D marking will be very obvious.

Third, more suitable for deep carving

The traditional 2D marking has inherent defects in the deep surface carving of the object. As the laser focus moves up during the engraving process, the laser energy acting on the actual surface of the object will drop sharply, which seriously affects the effect and efficiency of the deep carving.

The traditional deep carving method is to electrically move the lifting table at a certain height during the engraving process,  to ensure the laser is on the focus. The 3D marking for deep carving processing does not have the above problems, which not only ensures the effect, but also improves the efficiency, and at the same time saves the cost of the electric lifting platform.

Fourth, can achieve multi-color marking

For general metal surface blackening, such as anodized aluminum, it is usually using for a suitable energy to use higher frequency pulses, marking with a certain defocusing, the defocusing distance obviously affects the energy distribution of the laser on the material surface and Color effect. For general 2D marking users, even if advanced features such as surface marking are not required, it is meaningful for the 3D marking machine to perform plane processing of multi-gradation multi-color effects.
Compared to traditional flat marking, 3D laser marking machine has more practicality in many occasions. If you need deep surface carving, please choose 3D laser marking machine using laser beyond.
