How to choose a right laser cutter power?

Firstly, choose a right power according to the material to be processed and the cutting thickness:

Choosing a right power need according to the actual material and the thickness of the cutting. So we can determine what model of the equipment an the processing format. And it can be a simple pavement for the later procurement work. The application field of laser cutting machine involves many industries such as sheet metal processing, metal processing and so on.

Secondly, choose a right power according to the smooth cutting surface:

The cutting thickness and the kind of gas will determine whether the cutting surface of laser cutter has burrs or not. There is no burr for cutting below 3mm. Nitrogen is the best gas, followed by oxygen, and air is the worst. The metal laser cutting machine has the least or no burrs, the cutting surface is very smooth, the speed is relatively high, and the material deformation is relatively small.

Thirdly,  choose a right power according to selection of core parts of laser cutting machine:

Lasers and laser heads are imported or domestic. Imported lasers generally use more IPGs, and domestic ones generally use Raycus. At the same time, pay attention to other parts of laser cutter, such as whether the motor is imported servo Motor, guide rail, bed, etc. Because they affect the cutting accuracy of the machine to a certain extent. One thing that needs special attention is the cooling system of the laser cutting machine-the cooling cabinet. Many companies directly use household air conditioners for cooling. In fact, everyone knows that the effect is very bad. The best way is to use industrial air conditioners. In order to achieve the best results.

Power selection:

For example, most factories cut metal sheets below 6mm. There is no need to buy a high-power laser cutting machine. A 1000W laser cutting machine can meet the production needs. If the production volume is large, I worry that the 1000W efficiency is not as good as the high-power laser cutting machine. The best choice is to buy two or more small and medium-power laser cutting machines, which will help manufacturers in controlling costs and improving efficiency.
