How to choose a metal laser cutting machine

XT Metal Laser Cutting Machine

How to choose a metal laser cutting machine is a headache for most of our customer friends. People may have never been exposed to it and have no similar purchasing experience. We have organized this question from the following aspects in order to provide some ideas for customers and friends.

Clearly identify the materials to be processed by purchasing a laser cutting machine

Firstly, we should clearly consider factors such as our own business scope, thickness of cutting materials, and which materials need to be cut. Then, we should choose the power size of the equipment to be purchased and the size of the workbench, which can be customized by the manufacturer according to customer needs.

Choosing a good manufacturer to purchase is reassuring

Carefully understand the strength, machine parameters, product quality, and performance of laser cutting machine manufacturers. Laser cutting machines are a large piece of equipment that requires careful purchase. We need to select several powerful and cost-effective manufacturers for preliminary communication and sampling. In the future, we can go to the manufacturer for further detailed information and discuss the machine’s price, training, payment method, and after-sales service in detail.

Attention should be paid to the core configuration of laser cutting machines

We also need to pay attention to some important components of the laser cutting machine when purchasing. For example, laser generators, laser cutting heads, servo motors, guide rails, water tanks, etc. These components directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of laser cutting machines.

Choose a brand with good after-sales service

The after-sales service of each manufacturer varies greatly, and the warranty period also varies. In after-sales service, provide customers with daily maintenance plans and corresponding training systems for machines and laser software to help them get started as soon as possible. Another thing is that no matter how well the laser cutting machine is done, users will encounter problems during use. If there are problems that customers cannot solve on their own, it is very important for the manufacturer to provide timely solutions. This is also an important factor that we need to consider when purchasing laser cutting machines.

Laser cutting machine price

After truly understanding the above, let’s consider the price again. At present, the prices in the laser cutting machine industry are still mixed. Some OEM companies are also starting to sell their equipment at low prices. In this way, their quoted prices are very low, but in reality they do not have technical research and development costs or after-sales costs. Another very important issue is the manufacturing process of the equipment, which is very important.

Some customers said during the conversation, ‘Aren’t your equipment all assembled?’? Why are your prices higher than others? There are two reasons for this, firstly, the manufacturing process of the equipment, just like a car. We all know cars, they are assembled. However, cars assembled by different manufacturers are different in use. After a period of time, some cars may make noise or malfunction here, which is a technical difference. Laser cutting equipment is the same, and equipment produced by technologically backward manufacturers may have poor accuracy or problems after a period of time. This is technology.

The other is the accessories used. The price and quality of the same accessory vary depending on the manufacturer. These two points require special attention from our colleagues who purchase equipment.
