The Most Important Six Core Components of the Fiber Laser Cutting Machine 1—Winnie
Now, the laser industry develop rapidly. The fiber laser cutting machine is becoming the first choice and replacing the traditional cutting process. With its advantages like good cutting quality and cutting efficiency. And no pollution, no consumables during the metal cutting process.
However, there still have big difference in cutting quality and efficiency. Among the fiber laser cutting machine with the distinct components. XTLASER as the professional laser manufacturer will show the most important six components. For you to purchase a fiber laser cutting machine that suitable for your condition.
STEP1. FIBER LASER
The fiber laser is belong to the high precision equipment. And the core motivation source of the fiber laser cutting machine. It is also the most expensive part of the fiber laser cutting machine. We must pay more attention to it when we purchase a fiber laser cutter.
The laser adopted by the fiber laser cutting machine is mainly fiber laser. At present, there are popular laser brand like Germany IPG and ROFIN. SPI in England in the international laser market, and domestic brand including Raycus and Max with high value is becoming
Popular. We all know that the imported laser with the characters like high purchase cost. Long lead time but with the good cutting quality and efficiency, low maintenance cost and long service life. Compared with the imported laser, there are more choice in domestic market with lower price. Therefore, it is the best for us to meet our production requirement to choose the laser whether the imported or domestic brand.
STEP2. Laser head
The laser cutting technology adopts a cutting head to focus the laser light emitted by the laser into a high-power density laser to cut the workpiece. The laser head is a laser output core device, which have a focusing mirror, a focusing lens, a nozzle, a sensor, and a control system. Among them, one of the key factors affecting the cutting efficiency is the shape of the nozzle in the cutting head and the characteristics of the flow field generated. Reasonable auxiliary gas types and flow fields not only improve the processing capacity, but also limit the heat affected zone to a small range to ensure the processing quality.
In the laser cutting process, the distance between the cutting head and the workpiece is an extremely important factor, which directly affects the cutting quality. During the cutting process, to avoid collision between the cutting head and the protrusion of the workpiece. Causing damage to the nozzle, cutting head or workpiece, a special sensor must install on the cutting head to automatically detect the change of the distance and automatically adjust accordingly. Therefore, the distance between the cutting head and the workpiece is kept constant, thus ensuring stable cutting quality and increasing process safety.
For different materials, the cutting head needs to be adjusted. A good cutting head can effectively improve the cutting effect and cutting speed. Inferior cutting heads can’t even be cut on certain materials. Therefore, we have to choose the right laser head and adjust the laser cutting head height according to different materials to meet the laser processing needs.
