Fiber laser cutting machine VS CO2 laser cutting machine
Equipment maintenance cost
CO2 laser cutting machine maintenance cost is huge. Not only the lens,and the turbine bearing life is only 8000 hours,and the replacement costs 10000 USD per pair. However ,the fiber laser cutting machine is maintenance free,basically without consumables,and can competent for the harsh working environment, with a high tolerance for dust,shock,impact, humidity and temperature.
CO2 laser cutting machine produces gas consumption. And has a photoelectric conversion rate of only 8%-10%.However,Fiber laser cutting machine does not need any other consumption ,and its photoelectric conversion rate can reach 30%, which is more energy-saving.
In terms of technology
The laser structure of CO2 laser cutting machine is complex. Therefore, the maintenance cost is high, and the beam divergence is large in processing, which is not suitable for large-scale processing. Although the cutting seam is relatively thin, it is very slow in processing thick plates. However,the characteristics of fiber laser cutting machine are embodied in miniaturization, intensification, high brightness and high conversion. In the processing of thin plates, the cutting speed of the same power fiber laser cutting machine is 2-3 times higher than CO2, and the cutting section is smooth.
