How to choose auxiliary gas for laser cutting machine equipment?-Amber

How to choose auxiliary gas for laser cutting machine equipment

 

As a general processing method in modern manufacturing, laser cutting machine breaks the traditional processing method and is widely used in all walks of life with a brand-new cutting method, especially fiber laser cutting machine, which has developed rapidly in recent years.

Users who understand fiber laser cutting machines should know that auxiliary gas must be used in the cutting process. So many people are more concerned about the choice of “gas”. Today I will share with you the gas used in fiber laser cutting.

Why add auxiliary gas during processing?

Before figuring out how to choose auxiliary gas, you need understand why the auxiliary gas is used and the role of the auxiliary gas. Experience summary: In addition to blowing away the slag in the coaxial slit, using auxiliary gas can cool the surface of the processed object, reduce the heat-affected zone, cool the focusing lens, and prevent smoke and dust from entering the lens holder to pollute the lens and cause the lens to overheat; In addition, some cutting gases can also protect the base material. The choice of gas pressure and type has a greater impact on the cutting process, and the choice of the type of auxiliary gas will have a certain impact on the cutting performance, including the cutting speed and cutting thickness.

The auxiliary gases that thelaser cutting machine can use mainly include air, nitrogen, oxygen. Below we will introduce the use and characteristics for different auxiliary gases.

  1. Air

Air can be provided directly by an air compressor, so the price is very economical compared to other gases. Although the air contains about 20% oxygen, the cutting efficiency is far less than that of oxygen, and the cutting ability is similar to that of nitrogen. A small amount of oxide film will appear on the cut surface, but it can be used as a measure to prevent the coating layer from falling off. The end face of the incision become yellow.

The main applicable materials are aluminum, aluminum alloy, stainless steel, copper, brass, electroplated steel plate, etc. However, when the quality requirements of the cutting products are high, aluminum, aluminum alloy, stainless steel, etc. are not suitable for air, because air will oxidize the base material.

  1. Nitrogen

Some metals use oxygen to form an oxide film on the cutting surface when cutting, and nitrogen can be used to prevent oxidation film from appearing in non-oxidation cutting. Therefore, it has the characteristics of direct welding, painting, and strong corrosion resistance. The cut end is whitish.

The main applicable plates are stainless steel, galvanized steel sheet, brass, aluminum, aluminum alloy, etc.

  1. Oxygen

Mainly used for laser cutting carbon steel. While the oxygen reaction heat is used to increase the cutting efficiency in a large format, the oxide film produced will increase the beam spectrum absorption factor of the reflective material. The cut end is black or dark yellow.

Mainly suitable for rolled steel, rolled steel for welding structure, carbon steel for mechanical structure, high-tension plate, tool plate, stainless steel, galvanized steel sheet, copper, copper alloy, etc.

Carbon steel fiber lazer cutter 3000w power

Carbon steel fiber lazer cutter 3000w power.

Generally, will burn the material. Possible reasons as below.

(1) The laser focus position is offset, and the focus position test is performed, and the offset is adjusted according to the offset of the laser focus.

(2) The output power of the laser is not enough. It is necessary to check whether the work of the laser generator is normal. If it is normal, observe whether the output value of the laser control button is correct, if it is not adjusted properly.

(3) The cutting line speed is too slow, and it is necessary to increase the line speed during operation control.

(4) The cutting gas is not pure enough to provide high quality cutting working gas

(5) The instability of the machine tool running time is too long. At this time, it needs to be shut down and restarted.

Laser not completely cut

The reason why the laser is not completely cut.

(1) The selection of the laser nozzle does not match the thickness of the processing plate, and the nozzle or processing plate is replaced.

(2) The laser cutting line speed is too fast, and the operation control is required to reduce the line speed.

Abnormal sparks when cutting low carbon steel.

When the low carbon steel is cut normally, the fire bouquet is long, flat, and has fewer splits. The occurrence of abnormal sparks will affect the smoothness and quality of the cut section of the work piece.

In this case, if other parameters are normal, the following should be considered.

Firstly,The laser head nozzle has serious loss, and the nozzle should be replaced in time.

Secondly, In the case of no new nozzle replacement, the working gas pressure should be increased.

Thirdly, If the thread at the joint between the nozzle and the laser head is loose, the cutting should be suspended immediately, check the connection state of the laser head, and re-thread the thread.

How Proper Maintenance Affects Laser Cutting Quality-Teresa

How Proper Maintenance Affects Laser Cutting Quality

Lasers can produce some of the highest quality and most accurate cuts for fabrication. However, laser cutting can only be successful when fabricators consistently perform proper maintenance on their equipment. Without proper preventative maintenance, lasers will not perform optimally. Lack of preventative maintenance can lead to lower quality, imprecise cuts and an improperly functioning machine. Fortunately, as long as you perform regular maintenance, your laser will function optimally at all times. We’ve compiled a list of the top preventative maintenance steps you can take to keep your laser in optimal condition.

Keep Optics in Check

After performing any maintenance on the optics of your laser, you should make sure they are returned to OEM specifications. Out-of-spec optics can affect mode quality, beam quality, cutting performance, and optics life. Beam analyzers and beam profilers can address this issue. These tools are large camera-based systems that measure beam characteristics when the laser beam passes through. However, this equipment is very expensive.

Fortunately, fabricators can avoid the need for this expensive equipment by imprinting and attaching the original mode burn profiles on a piece of acrylic attached to each machine before it leaves the factory. This action allows fabricators to reference and check quickly for proper shape, size, power setting, and beam optic specifications. Advanced CNC machines are now programmed with step-by-step instructions both for performing maintenance checks and for simplifying optics checks. This is the benefit of utilizing the most modern technology. These instructions make it easy to keep your laser’s optics in check and ensure proper maintenance at all times.

Monitor Temperature

The chiller performance is important to the functionality of your laser, so it’s important to keep an eye on its temperature gauge at all times. Variations in operating temperature can affect the machine’s performance. Extreme temperature changes can even result in resonator damage, which will require a costly, time-consuming repair. All chillers have temperature sensors or temperature display to help fabricators monitor the temperature to prevent problems.

With newer control technology, fabricators can set the temperature to remain constant, eliminating the need for constant monitoring. However, even in this instance, fabricators will still need to monitor water levels in chiller units. Water can build up, especially when left idle for long periods of time, such as a long weekend. When water collects, it will build up conductivity. When the conductivity in the chiller unit is high, the machine’s self-diagnostic features will not allow the resonator to start until the level lowers. However, this operator can easily lower the chiller’s conductivity level by running the unit for a few minutes before cutting. Additionally, the operator should change the resin when necessary, which deionizes the water and helps lower conductivity.

Keep Equipment Clean

Keeping equipment clean is one of the most obvious maintenance steps to take. However, it is often the most neglectful. Especially processing areas, support slats, scrap drawers, slugs, and pallet ways. However, these areas can all contain a buildup of debris, dust, grease, and grime, which will affect the machine’s performance. A buildup on machine slats can affect slat support, causing the material to shift. This shifting can affect cut consistency, accuracy, and productivity.

Additionally, unclean processing areas, scrap drawers, dust collectors, and ducting can create a thermite hazard. Thermite is a mixture of aluminum and the oxide of another metal, typically mild steel that occurs in fabricating environments. When thermite is ignited, high temperatures can be produced that will cause significant damage to equipment. Fortunately, with regular cleaning of all parts of the laser, you can avoid these issues easily.
