Fiber Laser Cutting Machine knowledge
To know the features and details about fiber laser cutting machine, let us first know what laser cutting is.
To start with laser cutting, it is a technique which includes using a laser to cut materials.
Generally, we use this technology for industrial manufacturing applications.
But these days it is finding application in schools and small businesses too.
Even some hobbyists are using this.
This technology directs the output of a high-power laser through optics in most cases and that’s how it works.
In order to direct the material or the generated laser beam, we use the Laser optics and CNC standing for computer numerical control.
If you are going to use a typical commercial laser for cutting materials, it will involve a motion control system.
And this motion follows a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut into the material.
When the focused laser beam is directed at the material, it either melts, burns or blown away by a jet of gas.
And this phenomenon leaves an edge with a high-quality surface finishing.
However,there are industrial laser cutters , we use it to cut flat-sheet material.
And we also use them to cut structural and piping materials.
Besides,there are many types of fiber laser cutting machines based on their technology and functionalities.
There are three main types of lasers,and we use in laser cutting. They are:
- CO2 laser
- water-jet guided laser
- Fiber Lasers
1.The details of fiber laser cutting machine
At first,let’s now discuss fiber lasers.
These lasers are a type of solid-state laser which is growing fast within the metal cutting industry.
This technology uses a solid gain medium, which is contrary to CO2 lasers using a gas or liquid.
They all are related to doped fiber amplifiers which are meant to provide light amplification without lasing.
