Comparison between 6kw and 12kw fiber laser cutting machine
12kw fiber laser cutting machine VS 6kw fiber laser cutting machine
1. Cutting speed
For carbon steel, the cutting speed of 12 kW is 88% -567% faster than 6 kW.
For stainless steel, the cutting speed of 12 kW is 163% -289% faster than 6 kW.
Also taking the cutting of 5mm stainless steel as an example, the 12kw fiber laser cutting machine works continuously for 24 hours, which is equivalent to the 6kw fiber laser cutting machine working continuously for 2.7 days, and the 3000w laser cutting machine working continuously for 4.4 days.
Conclusion: 12kw has faster cutting speed and higher production efficiency than 6kw. It means customers can cut more parts than other manufacturers in the same time.
For sheet metal cutting, the delivery time can measure the processing level to a large extent. The shorter the delivery time, the higher the customer satisfaction and the stronger the market competitiveness. For self-produced and self-sold customers, faster processing speed means higher parts delivery efficiency, and can easily meet the demand for increased production capacity.
2. Advantages of cutting carbon steel with air
12kw fiber laser cutting 6-14mm carbon steel with air is 181% -567% more efficient than cutting with oxygen
Conclusion: Air can be used when cutting 6-14mm carbon steel, save on oxygen by ensuring cutting speed, thus to save more gas cost.
High power laser cutting machine can use air to cut thin plates, and the cutting effect can be guaranteed. Air is much cheaper than Oxygen, this will further reduce the cost of use and enhance the profitability of the company.
3. Cutting effect
Conclusion: 12kw has better cutting effect than 6kw
The high power laser cutting machine has a better cross-section and a smaller taper. At the same time, it can cut a wider thickness of the bright surface. It can complete the bright surface cutting of 30mm carbon steel. Customer is more satisfied with the finished product.
Main advantages of high power fiber laser cutter
From the comparision, you can know what’s the main advantages of high power fiber laser cutter:
- Faster cutting speed, higher production efficiency, help customers gain more orders
- Can cut thin plates with air, save more gas cost
- The cutting effect is better, less slag/ burr and more shining surface
- The rejection rate is much lower than lower power, it can save more plates for customers and reduce the production cost and wasteage.
