Comparison between fiber laser and traditional cutter –Oriole

 

Application of fiber laser cutting machine in kitchen and bathroom industry

fiber laser cutter

Comparison between fiber laser and traditional cuter

We will show you comparison between fiber laser and traditional cutter in this artical. The main method for cutting medium and thick plates was oxyacetylene flame cutting in the 1950s and 1960s; after the 1970s, in order to improve and improve the cutting quality of flame cutting, oxyethane precision flame cutting and plasma cutting were promoted. Various cutting methods have their advantages and disadvantages, and have a certain scope of application in industrial production.

  • First, Flame cutting features

Firstly, lame cutting is a common method for rough machining of steel plates. The cost of cutting equipment is low, and it is the only economical and effective means to cut thick metal plates. However,  the heat affected zone of flame cutting is much larger than plasma cutting, and the thermal deformation is also relatively large. It cannot be performed on non-ferrous metals such as copper, aluminum, and stainless steel. Cutting, and the environmental pollution is more serious.

  • Second, Plasma cutting features

Plasma cutting has a wide cutting area and can cut all metal plates. The cutting speed is fast, the efficiency is high, and the cutting accuracy is higher than that of flame cutting. However, the cutting of thick plates has a large taper and wide slits. In the case of batch processing, it will cause a large amount of material waste , and harmful gases and a large amount of smoke will be generated, causing pollution.

Last but not the least, compared with the traditional oxyacetylene, plasma and other cutting processes, laser cutting speed is fast, the slit is narrow, the heat-affected zone is small, the edge of the slit is perpendicular, the cutting edge is smooth, and there are many types of materials that can be cut. The emergence of laser cutting technology has opened up a new field of laser technology in industrial applications. The application market prospects in microelectronics, rail transportation, molds, automobile manufacturing and other fields are broad. The development and application of laser cutting machines are undoubtedly important for modern industrial production. Major improvements and innovation breakthroughs.

All in all, above is some comparison between fiber laser and traditional cutter. Any need please contact us at any time without any hesitation.

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.
