Reflective metals fiber laser cutting machine
Reflective metals fiber laser cutting machine is accessing with special care due to possible damage to the lens system.
For this reason, special systems and techniques that don’t diminish the precision of the cut have developed.
Laser cutting companies in practice often encounter high-reflective metals such as aluminum.
The cutting of these metals requires special attention and the preparation of a laser cutter.
Namely, due to the reflexive properties of such metals, careless cutting, or non-preparation of the sanding surface, may result in damage to the lens of the laser.
In addition to aluminum, laser cutting of stainless steel that is further processing by polishing can also be a major problem.
In order to prevent potential rejection of the laser beam, we require several actions .
Reflective metal must cover with a layer or a device that absorbs the laser beam.
This approach to cutting doesn’t affect the quality and the precision of the cut, and the laser cutter is protected from destruction.
In addition to the above-mentioned processing, most modern laser cutting machines come with an implemented self-protection system.
This system in the case of a laser beam reflection shuts down the laser cutter and thus prevents the lens.
The whole system works on the principle of radiation measurement, that is, its monitoring when cutting.
However, the advancement of technology has developed laser cutters that are resistant to such occurrences, and these are fiber lasers.
Fiber laser cutter
Today, in addition to the standard CO2 laser cutters, when it comes to laser metal cutting ,the use of fiber laser is foremost.
Fiber laser technology is one of the latest cutting techniques that gives significantly better performance than CO2 lasers.
