Running cost of fiber laser cutting machine-Ariel

                                  Running cost of fiber laser cutting machine

Compared with other equipment, the running cost of fiber laser cutting machine should be the lowest. So today we will introduce the running cost of fiber laser cutting machine in this article. In fact,the running cost includes 3 parts: electric power, auxiliary gas and quick wear parts.

Take 3000w XTC-1530G as sample.

How to get a perfect cutting effect

    Firstly, Electric power

1000w IPG XTC-F1530Erated power is 34kw. Real machine running cost occupy 60%~70% of whole power, so the real electric power cost is            20.4~23.8kw/h.


Secondly,Auxiliary gas consumption

One gas tank is 40L in China.
1).Nitrogen consumption is the same for different thickness stainless steel.
It’s consumption of continue cutting is about 20~30min/tank.
2). Oxygen consumption will decline when carbon steel thickness increase.
The thicker the carbon steel, the less the gas consumption.
For example, 1mm carbon steel cutting gas consumption is about 50~60min/tank.
10mm carbon steel cutting gas consumption is about several hours/tank.

We recommend you use liquid gas, its cost will be much more lower.  Most of our customers use it.


Thirdly, quick wear parts

Main quick wear parts include nozzle and protective lens. First year their consumption is about 20~30 pieces, but the cost will decline later. As their consumption have big relationship with workers’ operation.

Nozzle 10USD/piece; Protective lens 15USD/piece.
So the cost of nozzle and protective lens is about 500USD per year.

 Fourthly,Other parts.

  Focus lens,  collimating lens and ceramic rings are not common quick wear parts.
You just need to prepare 1 set for spare, their total cost is 350USD.

NO. Name Quatity Time Hours USD/piece Remark
1 Nozzle 1 1 month 10 Better environment, longer using time
2 Protective lens 2 1 month 15
3 Focus lens 2 2~3 month 150
4 Collimating lens 1 2~3 month 150
5 Ceramic rings 1 1 year 50
