Why should we need auxiliary gas when we using fiber laser cutting machine ? –Oriole

Why should we need auxiliary gas when we using fiber laser cutting machine ?

More and more manufacturers choose to use a fiber laser cutting. Cause it is non-contact and less consumption. Why should we need auxiliary gas when we using fiber laser cutting machine cutting metals?

Fiber laser cutting machine.

                      Fiber laser cutting machine.

Above all, reasons.

First,chemical reaction.

The gas will start chemical reaction with the metal material. It will increase the working capacity.

Second, clean.

The gas can blow off the slag by air and clean the cutting seam.

Third, avoid shape change of the material.

The gas will cool the area around cutting seam. It can avoid shape change of the material.

Last but most important, protect the lens.

To protect the focus lens. Avoid combustion products hurting lens.

Besides functions.

Normally, O2 ( Oxygen) , N (Nitrogen) and Compressed Air will be used.

Their functions are as following.

First, N: Nitrogen is used for cutting nonferrrous metal. Such as Stainless Steel and Aluminum sheet. The gas can cool and protect the material. As such materials are easy to be blackened with Oxygen.So use Nitrogen can avoid this phenomenon of going black. It can be used to cut

aluminum alloy, stainless steel, galvanized steel sheet, brass.

Second, O2: Oxygen is used in cutting Carbon Steel and stainless steel. As there is many Carbonaceous impurities in carbon steel. So use O2 can greatly increase the combusting speed. Which as well, accelerating cutting speed. However, there is a disadvantage, the cutting surface will be black.

Third, Compressed Air: It can be provided by Air Compressor, the price is very low. Although there is about 20% Oxygen in air. The cutting efficiency is far less than Oxygen.It nearly same as Nitrogen’s efficiency.The cutting surface appears yellow. It can be used to cut aluminum, aluminum alloy, stainless steel, galvanized steel sheet, nonmetal, etc.

The application of UV laser marking machine-Ariel

The application of UV laser marking machine

This article is about the application of  UV laser marking machine.

The UV laser machine  is a technology very different from CO2 and Fiber laser technology.

Today we are going to explain the main differences between this technologies.

Cold laser engraving

Also knows as the blue laser beam, this technology has the capacity of engraving with a low rate of heat.

The light wave or UV light spectrum of this machine is one of the main reasons this technology can engrave over different materials.

Because it doesn’t heat the material surface as the Fiber and the CO2 does.

It allows the UV laser mark clear and with high precision over all the plastics and other materials that have an adverse reaction with heat.

Plastics

There are thousands of different mix of plastics, and all of them can be engraved for UV laser technology.

These are some of the most common plastics engraving with our laser engraver machine.

Metals

The UV laser it can engrave and mark metals, but not always with the same effect as the fiber laser engraver machine.

While a fiber laser can etch over the metal surface with deep effect and with a clear result.

The UV laser has problems engraving metals covered with painting, or metals highly reflective like the copper.

Check below the list of metals that the UV laser can engrave.

Glass

The UV laser is one of those technologies that can engrave over glass surfaces without a break or overheat the material.

You can create amazing engravings and patterns without splinter glass result.

Descriprtions of the handheld fiber laser welding machine.

                                                                                                   Descriprtions of the handheld fiber laser welding machine.

 

Here are some descriprtions of the handheld fiber laser welding machine.I would like to share with you some features and operation cost of the handheld fiber laser welding machine. It is easy to operate and the maintenance cost is also very low.

First of all,needn’t welding wire.

Compared with the traditional welding, like tig, it doesn’t need to use welding wire.Only when the gap more than 0.5mm, we should use the wire feeder.

Secondly,less quick-wear parts.

The quickly-wear parts for the  machine are only protective lens and copper nozzle.

What’s more,less electricity and gas.

Except the quick-wear parts, the machine also consume electricity and gas.
The power consumption of 1kw machine is 7.5kw/hour at full power situation. In fact, we usually just use 50%-60% power of 1000w to weld the metals.So the power consumption is small.The machine also need to connect with gas, argon or nitrogen.

The gas can isolate the air from the welding plate to prevent the 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.

Tips:The price of the gas is different in different counties and regions. If our customers think the cost of the gas is too high,they can use air compressor to produce air gas. But the welding effect will not very good.The welding surface of the metal may be black.So our customers should wipe the surface of the metal with ethyl alcohol.

Last but not least,easy to maintenance.

The machine is very easy to matain.When finish your welding work, turn off the power and clean the welding head, it can make the lifetime of protective lens and copper nozzle longer.

 

That is all my descriptation.Hope it is helpful for you. If you have any confused of machine,please feel free contact us.
