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.

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.

Carbon steel fiber lazer cutter 3000w power – Jill

Carbon steel fiber lazer cutter 3000w power

Carbon steel fiber lazer cutter 3000w power.

Generally, will burn the material. Possible reasons as below.

(1) The laser focus position is offset, and the focus position test is performed, and the offset is adjusted according to the offset of the laser focus.

(2) The output power of the laser is not enough. It is necessary to check whether the work of the laser generator is normal. If it is normal, observe whether the output value of the laser control button is correct, if it is not adjusted properly.

(3) The cutting line speed is too slow, and it is necessary to increase the line speed during operation control.

(4) The cutting gas is not pure enough to provide high quality cutting working gas

(5) The instability of the machine tool running time is too long. At this time, it needs to be shut down and restarted.

Laser not completely cut

The reason why the laser is not completely cut.

(1) The selection of the laser nozzle does not match the thickness of the processing plate, and the nozzle or processing plate is replaced.

(2) The laser cutting line speed is too fast, and the operation control is required to reduce the line speed.

Abnormal sparks when cutting low carbon steel.

When the low carbon steel is cut normally, the fire bouquet is long, flat, and has fewer splits. The occurrence of abnormal sparks will affect the smoothness and quality of the cut section of the work piece.

In this case, if other parameters are normal, the following should be considered.

Firstly,The laser head nozzle has serious loss, and the nozzle should be replaced in time.

Secondly, In the case of no new nozzle replacement, the working gas pressure should be increased.

Thirdly, If the thread at the joint between the nozzle and the laser head is loose, the cutting should be suspended immediately, check the connection state of the laser head, and re-thread the thread.

Finally,if you want to know some details,contact us.

And also,if for more questions just let us know.

Gases Consumption about 1kw 2kw Fiber laser metal cutting machine – Jill

With the fast development of 1kw 2kw Fiber laser metal cutting machine,  the gas consumption with different metal materials are also different . Today we will share something about the gas usage.

Taking one examples as the followings for 1kw 2kw Fiber laser metal cutting machine.

In China, one bottle of Liquid Oxygen is 50$/bottle, Standard oxygen or nitrogen gas bottle is 40L/bottle.

1mm Carbon steel  40L/40minutes

2mm Carbon steel 40L/50minutes

3mm Carbon steel 40L/60minutes

4mm Carbon steel 40L/70minutes

5mm Carbon steel 40L/80minutes

6mm Carbon steel 40L/90minutes

8mm Carbon steel 40L/110minutes

10mm Carbon steel 40L/130minutes

For carbon steel, the thicker fiber laser metal cutter, the less Oxygen pressure you need, because if use higher Oxygen pressure for thicker metal sheet, it will be burned.

1mm stainless steel 40L/30minutes 20

2mm stainless steel 40L/30minutes

3mm stainless steel 40L/30minutes

4mm stainless steel 40L/30minutes

Generally speaking, the thicker metal sheet, the higher Nitrogen pressure it needs.

For example, if cut 1mm ss, use 10kg Nitrogen. If cut 4mm ss, need 20kg Nitrogen.

But in order to keep high cutting speed for thin metal sheet , such as 1mm.

So we suggest client to adjust same pressure, all of them are 20kg, in this way, it can not only make sure of high speed of 1kw 2kw Fiber laser metal cutting machine, also it can make sure of cutting thick metal sheet.

 In addition, many clients will also consider about the relation between Nozzles’ diameter & Cutting plate.

The cutting nozzles significantly influence the 1kw 2kw Fiber laser metal cutting machine cutting process. For example, when we have to deal with low-pressure laser cutting, smaller nozzles are require. Conversely, when the material machining calls for a higher-pressure cut, then we need to use larger nozzles.
Generally, different cutting materials are with different nozzles diameters (Both the Single & Double nozzles) in fiber laser metal cutter.

– For the carbon steel with 2000w cutter’s cutting range:
It should be with double nozzle with 1.2, 1.5 and 2.0 diameter, and with the O2 auxiliary gas;

– For the stainless steel & aluminium with 2000w cutter’s range:
It should be with single nozzle with 2.0, 2.5. 3.0. 3.5(optional) with the N2 auxiliary gas;

Any question, free to let me know.

How does the nozzle influence the fiber laser cutting ability-Teresa

How does the nozzle influence the fiber laser cutting ability

The relationship between nozzle and cutting quality

When the nozzle center and the laser center are not on the same axis, the effect on laser cutting quality:

1) Affect the cutting section. When the cutting gas is sprayed, it will cause uneven air volume. And it will make the cutting section have melting stains on one side and not on the other side. It has little effect on cutting thin plates below 3mm. When cutting a sheet of more than 3mm, its impact is more serious, and sometimes it will not be able to cut.

2) Influencing the quality of sharp corners, when cutting workpieces with sharp corners or small angles, local overmelting is likely to occur. When cutting thick plates, it may not be possible to cut.

3) Affect the perforation, instability during perforation, the time is difficult to control, the penetration of thick plates will cause overmelting, and the penetration conditions are not easy to grasp, and the impact on thin plates is small.

How to choose the nozzle aperture

There are several types of nozzle apertures: φ1.0mm, φ1.5mm, φ2.0mm, φ2.5mm, φ3.0mm, etc. At present, two kinds of nozzle apertures are φ1.5mm and φ2mm. The difference between the two is:

1) Thin plates below 3mm: use φ1.5mm, the cutting surface will be thin; use φ2mm, the cutting surface will be thicker, and the corners will have melting stains.

2) Thick plates above 3mm: Due to the higher cutting power, the relative heat dissipation time is longer, and the relative cutting time also increases. With φ1.5mm, the gas diffusion area is small, so it is not stable when used, but it is basically usable. With φ2mm, the gas diffusion area is large and the gas flow rate is slow, so the cutting is more stable.

3) The hole diameter of φ2.5mm can only be used for cutting thick plates over 10mm. In summary, the size of the nozzle aperture has a serious impact on cutting quality and perforation quality. At present, laser cutting mostly uses nozzles with φ1.5mm and φ2mm apertures.

Therefore, when the nozzle aperture is larger, the relative protection of the focusing lens is worse. Because the sparks of the melt splash during cutting and the probability of bouncing upward is great, which makes the life of the lens shorter.

The concentricity between the center of the nozzle and the laser

The concentricity between the center of the nozzle and the laser is one of the important factors that cause the quality of the cutting, especially when the workpiece is thicker, its influence is greater. Therefore, the concentricity between the nozzle center and the laser must be adjusted to obtain a better cutting section.

Note: When the nozzle is deformed or there are melting stains on the nozzle, its impact on the cutting quality is the same as described above. Therefore, the nozzle should be placed carefully and not bumped to avoid deformation; the melting stains on the nozzle should be cleaned up in time . The quality of the nozzle has high precision requirements during manufacturing, and the correct method is required during installation. If various conditions are to be changed during cutting due to the poor quality of the nozzle, the nozzle should be replaced in time.
