Operating costs of fiber laser cutting machine
Nowadays, with sience and technical develop quickly, more and more people choose laser machine to cut, weld, mark, clean metals. Today, we will show you the operating costs of the fiber laser cutting machine. It includes 3 main parts: electric power, auxiliary gas and spare parts.
First of all, electric power.
Real machine runing cost occupy 60%-70%. 1500w Raycus XTC-1530HT rated power is 24kw,
the real electric power cost is 14.4-16.8kw/h (including the water chiller).
What’s more, 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.
Last but not least, spare parts.
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)
Here is a list for service life of consumable parts on a fiber laser cutting machine for your reference.
|1||Nozzles||1||300-500 hours||10||Better environment, longer using time.|
|2||Protective lens||1||300-500 hours||15|
|3||Focus lens||2||4000 hours||150|
|4||Collimataing lens||2||4000 hours||150|
|5||Ceramic rings||1||4000 hours||50|
