Reflective metals laser cutting machine
Reflective metals laser cutting macine is accessed with special care due to possible damage to the lens system.
For this reason, we develop special systems and techniques that don’t diminish the precision of the cut.
Which are these techniques?
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 can also be a major problem.
Why are there any cutting difficulties of laser cutting machine?
Co2 laser cutters function on the principle of directing the laser beam through the mirrors and lenses on the small surface of the cutting material.
Since the laser beam is actually a light beam of high strength.
The reflexive properties of metal can cause laser beam rejection.
In this case, the reversed laser beam enters through the head of the laser cutting machine on the lenses and the mirror system.
They it can cause damage.
In order to prevent potential rejection of the laser beam, here we need several actions.
Reflective metal must be covered 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 from being destroyed.
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.
