How to choose a laser cutting machine?
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 Laser, will introduce to you how to choose a laser cutting machine correctly, which can be considered from the following aspects:
1. The materials processed by the enterprise and the needs of its business scope
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 of the equipment and the size of the workbench that needs to be purchased. At present, the power range of laser cutting machines on the market is between 500W and 6000W, and the general size of the workbench can be customized 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 peers who have already purchased laser cutting machines to see the performance and basic parameters of the machines. Select several manufacturers with strength and favorable prices for preliminary communication and sampling, and then we can conduct on-site inspections in the later stage to have more detailed negotiations on machine prices, machine training, payment methods, and after-sales service.
3. The size of laser power
When choosing the performance of laser cutting machines, we should fully consider our own environment. The power of the laser is very important. For example, if we often cut metal plates below 6mm, we can choose a 500W-700W laser cutting machine to meet production requirements. If cutting materials larger than 6mm, it is necessary to consider machines with higher power, which is of great help to the cost control of enterprises.
The core part of 4 laser cutting machines
When choosing a laser cutting machine, we also need to pay great attention to some important components. It’s important to distinguish whether laser generators, laser cutting heads, servo motors, guide rails, water tanks, etc. are domestically produced or imported. These parts directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of laser cutting machines. Many domestic manufacturers use domestically produced components to deceive customers.
The quality and stability of the 5 devices are also very important measurement standards
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 various manufacturers varies greatly, and the length of warranty period also varies. In terms of after-sales service, we not only provide customers with effective daily maintenance solutions, but also have a professional training system for machines and laser software to help customers get started as soon as possible.
In addition, even with the best laser cutting machine, users may encounter various problems during use. When encountering problems that customers cannot solve on their own, it is particularly important to rely on the manufacturer’s ability to provide timely solutions, which is also an important factor we need to consider when purchasing laser cutting machines.
