In recent years, laser cutting technology has been increasingly widely used in processing industries such as sheet metal and handicrafts, whether in the field of metal cutting or non-metallic cutting. The technology of laser cutting machines has become quite mature and has a large market share in the cutting industry. However, many users still have various questions about how to choose a suitable laser cutting machine, Below, the manufacturer of medium and low power laser equipment, XT, will introduce to you how to choose a laser cutting machine correctly, which can be considered from the following aspects:
1. The range of materials and business requirements processed by the enterprise
Firstly, we need to consider factors such as our business scope, the thickness of cutting materials, and which materials need to be cut. Then, we need to determine the power size of the equipment to be purchased and the size of the workbench. Currently, the power of laser cutting machines on the market ranges from 500W to 6000W, and manufacturers with average workbench sizes can customize according to customer needs.
Preliminary Selection of 2 Manufacturers
After determining the demand, we can go to the market to learn about it or go to colleagues who have purchased laser cutting machines to first check the machine’s performance and basic parameters. Select several manufacturers with strong capabilities and favorable prices for preliminary communication and sampling. Later, we can conduct on-site inspections and have more detailed discussions on machine prices, training, payment methods, after-sales service, etc.
3. Size of laser power
When selecting the performance of laser cutting machines, we should fully consider our own environment. The size of laser power is crucial. For example, if we often cut metal sheets below 6mm, we can choose a 500W-700W laser cutting machine to meet production needs. If we cut materials above 6mm, we need to consider machines with higher power, which is very helpful for cost control of enterprises.
The core part of 4 laser cutting machines
We also need to pay great attention to some important components of laser cutting machines when purchasing them. Especially for laser generators, laser cutting heads, servo motors, guide rails, water tanks, etc., it is important to distinguish whether they are domestically produced or imported. These components directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of laser cutting machines, and many domestic manufacturers use domestically produced counterfeit imported parts to deceive customers.
The quality and stability of the equipment are also important measurement indicators
Nowadays, the research and development cycle of products is short, and the updates and upgrades are getting faster and faster. There is a lot of diversity, sample trial production, and mass production of products. How to complete customer orders with high quality and quantity, maintain corporate reputation, and enhance corporate competitiveness is also a challenging task for every operator. Therefore, choosing processing equipment with stable performance is the premise and foundation, and choosing high market share and a sound after-sales service system is the best choice Brands with multiple after-sales service outlets and long-term market testing cannot simply purchase products with poor quality and no after-sales service just because they are greedy for low prices. This will have a huge impact on the production of enterprises.
6 After sales service
The after-sales service of each manufacturer varies greatly, and the warranty duration also varies. In terms of after-sales service, we not only provide customers with effective daily maintenance plans, but also have a professional training system for machines and laser software to help customers get started as soon as possible.
Moreover, no matter how well a laser cutting machine is made, users will encounter various problems during use. When encountering problems that customers cannot solve themselves, it is particularly important for the manufacturer to provide timely solutions. This is also an important factor that we need to consider when choosing an excitation cutting machine.
