Advantages and development prospects of automatic loading and unloading equipment–Oriole

Advantages and development prospects of automatic loading and unloading equipment

automatic loading and unloading equipment

Firstly, the suction cup is automatically loaded.

In traditional manual feeding, for example, a 3m×1.5m sheet requires at least three workers to lift the sheet. And need an electric hoist to assist the feeding of heavy sheets. The time required for a sheet is at least three minutes, and the safety risk is very high and big. After using the suction cup to automatically load the material. It only needs manual button operation, which takes 10 seconds to complete the material. Because the equipment’s ergonomics and safety protection measures are in place, personal injury and safety accidents are zero. Andavoid the open type. Production is easy to cause harm to people, while improving work efficiency and reducing labor costs.

Secondly, it can meet the diverse needs of users.

When the production site is narrow and long, can load the equipment from the back of the fuselage workbench. When the site is relatively spacious, can load it from the side of the fuselage, according to the different needs of users, it can meet diversified production conditions and achieve flexibility. It can also ensure compact structure and small floor space.

Thirdly, the overall system has a high degree of automation.

The automatic loading and unloading equipment of the laser cutting machine can realize the cyclic operation of the whole process of plate loading-cutting-unloading through one-key operation. It can also cut manually and step by step. It can match with a three-dimensional material library to intelligently divide materials of different thicknesses. Layer management and easy control.

Fourthly, the function can be expanded at any time to realize the production of multiple machines on the same line.

One automatic loading and unloading equipment can load and unload multiple laser cutting machines. In the later stage, if you expand your production, you can connect multiply units at the same time. Without changing the inherent structure, more and more manufacturers will choose laser cutter and will improve the function of laser equipment.

Fifthly, strong your own brand.

The high degree of equipment automation can enhance the company’s brand image and help strengthen the company’s market competitive advantage.

How to choose a right laser cutter power?–Oriole

How to choose a right laser cutter power?

Firstly, choose a right power according to the material to be processed and the cutting thickness:

Choosing a right power need according to the actual material and the thickness of the cutting. So we can determine what model of the equipment an the processing format. And it can be a simple pavement for the later procurement work. The application field of laser cutting machine involves many industries such as sheet metal processing, metal processing and so on.

Secondly, choose a right power according to the smooth cutting surface:

How to choose a right laser cutter power?

How to choose a right laser cutter power?

The cutting thickness and the kind of gas will determine whether the cutting surface of laser cutter has burrs or not. There is no burr for cutting below 3mm. Nitrogen is the best gas, followed by oxygen, and air is the worst. The metal laser cutting machine has the least or no burrs, the cutting surface is very smooth, the speed is relatively high, and the material deformation is relatively small.

Thirdly,  choose a right power according to selection of core parts of laser cutting machine:

Lasers and laser heads are imported or domestic. Imported lasers generally use more IPGs, and domestic ones generally use Raycus. At the same time, pay attention to other parts of laser cutter, such as whether the motor is imported servo Motor, guide rail, bed, etc. Because they affect the cutting accuracy of the machine to a certain extent. One thing that needs special attention is the cooling system of the laser cutting machine-the cooling cabinet. Many companies directly use household air conditioners for cooling. In fact, everyone knows that the effect is very bad. The best way is to use industrial air conditioners. In order to achieve the best results.

Power selection:

For example, most factories cut metal sheets below 6mm. There is no need to buy a high-power laser cutting machine. A 1000W laser cutting machine can meet the production needs. If the production volume is large, I worry that the 1000W efficiency is not as good as the high-power laser cutting machine. The best choice is to buy two or more small and medium-power laser cutting machines, which will help manufacturers in controlling costs and improving efficiency.

How to extend the service life of laser cutter?–Oriole

How to extend the service life of laser cutter?

The laser cutter is a tool inmanufacturer’s production, the quality and service are very important, the maintenance is also very important. We will share how to extend the service life of laser cutter in this article.

Firstly, maintenance of the optical system  of  laser  cutter

Fiber laser cutter

How to extend the service life of laser cutter

After the device has been running for a period of time, some dust will stick to the surface of the lens. This dust will have a great impact on the reflectance of the lens and the transmittance of the lens, which will reduce the power of the laser. At this time, it is necessary to clean the lens. The dust, but you must be careful when cleaning up. The lens is a damaged item. Please handle it gently. Do not touch the lens with sharp or hard objects.

The steps and precautions for cleaning the lens are as follows: First, use absorbent cotton dipped in ethanol to wipe carefully along the center to the edge of the lens. The lens needs to be wiped gently, and the surface coating should not be damaged. Be sure to keep the concave surface down when installing the focusing lens. In addition, the use of ultra-high-speed piercing should be minimized at ordinary times. And the use of conventional piercing can prolong the service life of the focusing lens.

Secondly, maintenance of the dust removal system of laser cutter

The dust removal fan will accumulate a lot of dust after long-term use. If it is not cleaned regularly, it will lead to insufficient wind power and unsmooth smoke exhaust. This will affect the effect of exhaust deodorization and generate a lot of noise. You must pay attention to it during the cleaning process. To be safe, first turn off the power and remove the device on the fan. First remove the inlet and outlet ducts, clean up the dust inside, turn the fan upside down, flip the fan blades inside until it is clean, and then install the fan. It is best to keep the fan cleaned once a month.

Thirdly, maintenance of the transmission system of laser cutter

During the long-term cutting process of the equipment, will generate dust and smoke. Small smoke and dust will enter the equipment through the dust cover and adhere to the rail rack. Long-term accumulation will increase the wear of the rail rack. Rack guide rails are relatively precise accessories. Large amounts of dust are on the surfaces of guide rails and linear shafts for a long time, which has a great impact on the processing accuracy of the equipment. And will form corrosion points on the surface of the linear shaft of the guide rails, shortening the service life of the equipment.

Therefore, in order to make the equipment work normally and steadily and ensure the processing quality of the products, it is necessary to do a good job of daily maintenance of the guide rail and linear axis, and regular dust removal and cleaning. After cleaning the dust, grease the rack and lubricate the guide rail with lubricating oil. Each bearing should also be oiled regularly, so as to maintain flexible driving, precise machining and prolong the service life of the machine tool.

Fourthly, maintenance of cooling system of laser cutter

Need to replace the water in the cold water cabinet regularly. Generally, it needs to replace once a week. The quality and temperature of the circulating water directly affect the service life of the laser tube. Generally, manufacturers will require customers to use pure or distilled water, and the water temperature must below 35 degrees. If you do not change the water for a long time, it is easy to form scale, which will cause the pipeline to block, so you must change the water regularly.

The cooling water is responsible for taking away the heat generated by the laser tube. The higher the water temperature, the lower the light output power (15-20℃ water temperature is better); when the water is cut off, the tube end will burst due to the heat in the laser cavity and even damage the laser power supply. . Therefore, it is necessary to check whether the cooling water is unblocked at any time. When the water pipe has a hard bend (dead bend) or falls off, and the water pump fails, it must be repaired in time to avoid power drop or even equipment damage.

Fifthly, working environment requirements of laser cutter

The production workshop where the equipment is placed should be dry and well ventilated. The indoor temperature should preferably be between 4-33°C.  Also should prevent the equipment from condensation in summer and anti-freezing measures should be taken in winter. The equipment should be placed far away from places with electromagnetic interference, away from places with large electricity and strong earthquakes.

The interference of large electricity will cause the equipment to malfunction from time to time. Although it is not inevitable, also must prevent it. Therefore, the equipment should not be placed with large electric welding. Nearby equipment, such as machines, giant electric mixers, etc. Not to mention strong vibrations, ground vibrations will obviously cause deviations in the accuracy of laser engraving.

Sixthly, some other matters needing attention of laser cutter

During the operation of the equipment, the operator should always observe the operation of the equipment. If an abnormality occurs, immediately stop the operation of the equipment, cut off the power supply. And promptly report to a professional to inspect and repair the equipment. Do not disassemble and repair the equipment without permission. Perform regular statistics on the use of the equipment, and if there is an effect deviation, it should replace in time to prevent it before it happens. If you don’t know whether produced the material, do not process it, so as to avoid potential dangers and damage the laser equipment.

And the use of punching technology is the use of fiber laser cutting machines for punching, which can bring users high-precision and high-efficiency material processing, which is currently more popular. Intelligent processing equipment. Fiber laser cutting machine has a wide range of applications. Let us introduce the most important of fiber laser cutting machine.

Fiber laser cutter

Fiber laser cutter

Firstly, application of household appliances and kitchen appliances industry

The manufacture of household appliances and kitchen utensils is mainly made of stainless steel, iron, copper and other materials, and the thickness is relatively thin. When the thickness of the cutting material is small, the fiber laser cutting machine can cut the material faster and better. In addition, the equipment has high dieless cutting accuracy, which improves the output of household appliances such as range hoods and washing machines. However, the traditional cutting process requires more molds due to its fast cutting speed. This will waste time and increase costs.

More over, Application of construction machinery

In the construction machinery industry, the round hole plate is the most common. And the fiber laser cutting machine has a punching function, which can directly determine the position of the hole. The equipment can use laser to cut materials directly, which saves the drilling process and improves production efficiency. However, the premise is that the diameter of the plate hole is greater than or equal to the corresponding minimum diameter, and the roughness and diameter before processing must be within the cutting capacity of the equipment Inside;

Thirdly, application of agricultural machinery industry

The traditional agricultural machinery manufacturing still stays in the stamping process mode. This will not only wear more molds, but also keep the products intact, which is not conducive to product updates. The optical fiber laser cutting machine adopts program control. And can cut a variety of plates without molds and knives, which is beneficial to the processing and production of agricultural machinery.

Air compressor for fiber laser cutting machine-Ariel

Air compressor for fiber laser cutting machine

This airtle is about Air compressor for fiber laser cutting machine.

Many customers care about the machine running cost.So they are thinking about the gas consumption.Air compressor is a good choice.

Knowing how much the laser cutting machine knows that it needs to support gas during the cutting work. Without a gas source, the laser cutting machine can’t work. Generally, the laser cutting machine uses three kinds of gas sources: oxygen, nitrogen and compressed air. And if you use oxygen and nitrogen to cut, you need to go to a special gas station to buy the bottled liquid. Oxygen and liquid nitrogen. And just like buying bottled liquefied gas.

It is understood that the general barrel liquid oxygen price is about 500 yuan. And if you work 8 hours a day, you can consume the barrel oxygen in about 4 days. Then the average oxygen cutting cost calculate at 120 yuan per day.

If compressed air use as the gas source of the laser cutting machine, the cost is relatively large. So a 500W laser cutting machine needs about 1 cubic meter per minute, 10-12KG of compressed air. Then a 7.5KW is matched. And the air compressor of about -11KW can use. Then the electricity cost of such an air compressor running for one hour is about 5-8 degrees. And he maximum electricity consumption for 8 hours a day is 60 degrees. So the electricity cost is one yuan, and the cost is 60. Yuan up and down. It can save half compared to oxygen cutting.

Let’s calculate the account, save 60 yuan a day, 300 days a year, and save 18,000 yuan a year. It can be said that the cost of purchasing the complete set of screw air compressors can be recovered in a year. Therefore, laser cutting machines use compressed air to cut the lowest cost and save money.

Any questions,we can have a further discussion.

How to solve the accuracy problem of fiber laser cutter-Ariel

How to solve the accuracy problem of fiber laser cutter

How to solve the accuracy problem of fiber laser cutter?Many clients have this problem.

For a long time using a laser cutting machine for sheet metal processing, it is inevitable that the accuracy will decrease and the error will increase.

It will affect the processed products quality. It is not conducive to the production of the enterprise.

How to adjust the machine when an error occurs?

1. Firstly, the thickness of the cutting material exceeds the standard. Generally, the thickness of the plate that the metal laser cutting machine can cut is less than 12 thicknesses. The thinner the plate, the easier it is to cut, and the better the quality. If the plate is too thick, the laser cutting machine is more difficult to cut. Under the condition of ensuring the cutting, there will be errors in the processing accuracy, so the thickness factor of the plate must be determined.

2. Secondly,the laser output power is not up to standard. When the laser cutting machine is running and debugging, it is necessary to ensure that the laser output power reaches the standard. Generally, the higher the laser output power, the better the quality of the cutting on the same thickness of the plate.

3. Thirdly, Roughness of cutting board. In general, the flatter the surface of the cutting material, the better the quality of the cut.

4. Fourthly,The focus position is not accurate. If the focus of the laser cutting machine is not correct, it will directly affect the cutting accuracy, so calibration and check before operation. You can also purchase carved auto-focus laser head when purchasing the machine, auto-focusing, to ensure cutting accuracy.

5. Fifthly,Processing speed. The cutting speed of the laser cutting machine directly affects the processing accuracy. Therefore, it is also necessary to achieve the best match between the cutting speed and the material before running.

Hope it will be helpful to you.And if you have any other questions about the fiber laser cutting machine,pls feel free to contact us.
