Fiber laser tube pipe fiber laser cutting machine-Ariel

Fiber laser tube pipe fiber laser cutting machine

Nowadays more and more clients have the demands for tube/pipe cutting.So we will introduce the fiber laser tube pipe fiber laser cutting machine in this article.

We use tubes in countless medical devices and we add new ones every day.  The sheer number and diversity of devices is rapidly increasing. And with it, the demand for more and more laser-cut stents.Like flexible tubing, needles; biopsy devices; and other minimally invasive tools.

Replace legacy cutting machine

Firstly, YAG lasers is for decades have been great workhorses.Cause they have performed well and been excellent manufacturing centers for many companies.

While we update many of these systems to fiber lasers. However they still have old stage sets that are a number of generations behind current technology. In addition, they are running on slow and aging controllers with legacy software.

Simply put, the laser, stages, controller, software, water systems. Here is a brief overview of improvements.It is enable faster and better cuts with higher production rates and less downtime.

Fiber Laser

The pulsed Nd:YAG lasers used in the past years. It has been superseded by fiber lasers with better beam quality . This provides a smaller and more consistent focused spot size.Which offers tighter cutting tolerances, with spot sizes down to 10µm, the ability to cut much finer detail features. These lasers provide pulse frequencies up to and beyond 5kHz and pulse widths down to 20µs to enable energy input optimization for a wide variety of tube materials and wall thicknesses.

Fiber Laser tube pipe cutting technology

Now fiber lasers use microsecond pulses.It offers a cutting speed and edge quality that is sufficient for many applications. Fiber laser is very short pulse duration, combined with peak powers into the gigawatt level, offers a unique cutting capability. And also, the fiber laser has a fusion cutting mechanism. whereby the laser pulse melts the metal.It is then ejected from the part by high-pressure gas. The very high peak power of the fiber laser and a pulse duration that is shorter than the material’s conduction time creates a nearly pure vaporization mechanism. Since there is no melt creation during the cutting process, there is no burr, which is beneficial for such materials.

Fiber Laser tube cutting technology offer significant advantages and capability over legacy machines. It increases productivity with better process capability. Whether using the fiber laser, improvements to motion, controller and control software. It provide new capability for future manufacturing needs.

Do you learn about auto focus fiber laser cutting head?-Ariel

Do you learn about auto focus fiber laser cutting head

Do you learn about auto focus fiber laser cutting head?Many clients who never used fiber laser cutting machine asked us this questions.What is the difference between auto focus and manual focus?We will introduce them in this article.

 

Firstly,Comparison between the manual laser head and auto focus laser head.

For Manual laser cutting head,if the different thickness,then the focal length will be different.Then you need to adjust the focus,so that means,if you change the different thickness of stainless steel to cut.Then you need adjust the focus for every time,that will waste some time.

And the manual laser cutting head,if cut 5mm and 6mm stainless steel,the cutting time is longer.

For auto-focus laser cutting head,it has a built-in motor drive unit.Which drives the focusing lens through a linear mechanism to change position automatically within 17mm. Customers can set the program to achieve continuous focus that completing the rapid piercing and cutting material with different thickness.

The laser head has focus lens inside it, every focus lens have the focal length.If you find the correct focal length,then the laser power will be the strongest,and the cutting effect will be the best.

For manual laser head,that means,if you change the different thickness of the material,then you need to adjust the height of the laser head to find the correct focal length.And then you need to turn round the focus platform by your hand.

For auto focus laser head,that means,for the first time cutting,you need to find the focus ,then for any future cutting,the laser head will sense the thickness.And the motor move the laser head to up and down,to adjust the height by electric,not by manual.

Auto focus laser cutting head

Usually if your machine laser power is below 1500w,manual laser head is enough.

From 1500w, we will set one auto focus laser head to customers.That will help you to get a fast cutting.

If you also want a auto focus laser head for 1000w,750w and 500w. That is also no problem.

Anyone prefer to a great machine.Only you can undertake the cost.You make the decision.

Hope it can help you learn more about it.If you have any other questions,pls feel free to contact us.

 The factors which affect cutting good circle-Ariel

 The factors which affect cutting good circle

As we all know,cutting a good round hole is an important measure of fiber laser cutting machine.So we will talk about the factors which affect cutting good circle in this article.

laser cutter

With the popularity of laser cutting machines, customers have more and more requirements for laser cutting machines. For example, laser cutting machines cut out various patterns, and the use of laser cutting machines to cut round holes is not as simple as in the picture. So today, we canshare with you the points that need to be paid attention to when cutting a circular hole with a laser cutting machine.

Firstly. The laser cutting machine cuts the 1:1 hole is the best solution. The larger the hole diameter, the better the cutting. If the laser cutting machine with insufficient capacity is insufficient, the hole will be irregular and the break point will be too much.

Secondly. The gas pressure is too large or too small. When the gas pressure is too high, the cutting edge is rough and the burning is severe. Choosing the right gas pressure is one of the reasons for solving the irregularity of the circular hole cutting.

Thirdly. Servo motor parameters. Many parameters of the servo motor are related to the circular motion. The parameters are not suitable. If the x and y axes do not match, the ellipse or irregular pattern will appear in the circular hole.

Finally. The accuracy of the lead screw or guide rail is not enough. Some small factories have low technical strength and low level of workers. The accuracy of the laser cutting machine produced is less than 0.1mm, so the precision of the circular hole for cutting is not up to standard.

XTLASER has more than 17 years experience in this area.We always provide customers the suitable solution.

How to improve the cutting quality when use fiber laser cutter?-Ariel

How to improve the cutting quality when use fiber laser cutter?

How to improve the cutting quality when use fiber laser cutter?We will tell you some ways about that in this article.

Preparation before installation

Preparation before installation

Firstly.Effect of focus position adjustment on cutting quality.

After the laser beam focusing, the spot size is proportional to the focal length of the lens. After the beam focusing by the short focal length lens, the spot size is small, and the power density at the focus is high, which is good for material cutting. However, its shortcoming is that the depth of focus is very short and the adjustment margin is adjusted. Small, generally suitable for high-speed cutting of thin materials. Since the telephoto long lens has a wide focal depth, it is suitable for cutting thick workpieces as long as it has sufficient power density.

Secondly,Effect of auxiliary gas pressure on cutting quality.

In general, auxiliary gas is for material cutting, and the problem mainly involves the type and pressure of the auxiliary gas. Typically, the auxiliary gas is protecting the lens from contamination. And blowing away the slag at the bottom of the cutting zone.

For metal materials, use air or inert gas to treat the melted and evaporated materials while suppressing excessive burning of the cutting zone. Oxygen is in most metal laser cutting machines.

Finally,Effect of laser output power on cutting quality.

For a continuous wave output laser, the laser power size and mode will have an important impact on the cutting. In actual operation, it is often necessary to set a larger power to obtain a higher cutting speed, or to cut a thicker material.

If you want to improve the cutting quality,focus on the three points.
