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.
