Operating cost of laser cutter
Today, we will show you the operating costs of the laser cutting machine. It includes 3 parts: electric power, auxiliary gas and spare parts.
Real machine runing cost occupy 70%. For exmaple, 2000w Raycus XTC-1530HT rated power is 31kw,
the real electric power cost is 18.6-21.7kw/h (including the water chiller&fan).
2.Auxiliary gas: Oxygen, Nitrogen, Compressed Air
Standard oxygen or nitrogen gas bottle is 40L/bottle
1mm Carbon steel 40L/40minutes; 2mm Carbon steel 40L/50minutes; 3mm Carbon steel 40L/60minutes;
4mm Carbon steel 40L/70minutes; 5mm Carbon steel 40L/80minutes; 6mm Carbon steel 40L/90minutes.
Oxygen is used to cut carbon steel, can increase combusting speed and accelerating cutting speed.
Nitrogen is used in cutting nonferrous metal, like stainless steel and aluminum. It can avoid them turn black.
Compressed Air is used to cut aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel sheet, etc. It can provided by
Air Compressor, the price is low. It nearly same as Nitrogen’s efficiency. The cutting surface appears yellow.
Main quick wear parts includes nozzle and protective lens, their consumption is about 20-30 pieces one year.
Focus lens, Colimataing lens and Ceramic rings needn’t often change. You can prepare one set for spare.($350)
