High precision laser cutting machine-Eliza

New design 6060 high precision laser cutting machine

New design high quality precision fiber laser metal cutting-Precision fiber laser metal cutting.

Precise laser cutting performed in the same way as a traditional milling machine. Both techniques allow cutting on X, Y and Z axes that apply to cutting mechanisms. Meanwhile, a milling machine uses a drill to create cuts, a laser cutter uses a high-energy laser.

Laser cutting is the easiest for the product, allowing cutting to start at the edge of the material. Most precision laser cutters have both piercing and continuous wave cutting capabilities. Pierce holes often add a few seconds of production time to each part and should be avoided if possible.

Laser cutting offers many advantages over traditional metal cutting techniques because laser cutting produces no physical contact with the cut materials. As a result, laser cutting provides improved accuracy and can cut complex shapes. Other benefits include consistency across a wide range of parts, partial deformation, and the ability to quickly create design changes. In addition, the risk of injury will be smaller.

Precision laser cutting machine based on thin plate processing technology, high precision, fast speed, smooth cut, generally no need for follow-up processing;Cutting heat affected area is small, plate deformation is small;High machining accuracy, good repeatability, no damage to the surface of the material.At present, the application of precision machining industry is increasing, PCB board cutting, microelectronic circuit template precision cutting, glasses industry, jewelry industry.

Laser precision machining has the following remarkable characteristics:

1.Wide range: laser precision machining of a wide range of objects, including almost all metal and non-metallic materials;

2.High precision: laser beams can be focused to very small sizes, making them particularly suitable for precision machining.In general, laser precision machining is superior to other traditional machining methods because of its low quality and high precision;

3.High speed and quick:Laser precision machining is simple to operate and convenient to adjust the width of cutting seam. So it can do  high speed carving and cutting according to the pattern output by computer.

4.Safe and reliable: laser precision machining is non-contact processing, which will not cause mechanical extrusion or mechanical stress on the material,So it can process very small parts

5.Low cost: it is not limited by the quantity of processing. For small batch processing service, laser processing is cheaper.For the processing of large products, the mold manufacturing cost of large products is very high, laser processing does not need any mold manufacturing, and laser processing completely avoids the edge collapse caused by material punching and shearing, which can greatly reduce the production cost of enterprises and improve the product grade.

6.Small cutting seam: the laser cutting slit generally 0.1-0.2mm.

7.Smooth cutting surface: laser cutting surface without burr.

8.Small thermal deformation: laser processing laser slit, fast speed, energy concentration. So the heat transferred to the cut material  and the deformation of the material is small.

9.Material saving: laser processing adopts computer programming. So it can  cut materials of products of different shapes to maximize the utilization rate of materials . And  it greatly reduce the material cost of enterprises.

Why should we need auxiliary gas when we using fiber laser cutting machine ? –Oriole

Why should we need auxiliary gas when we using fiber laser cutting machine ?

More and more manufacturers choose to use a fiber laser cutting. Cause it is non-contact and less consumption. Why should we need auxiliary gas when we using fiber laser cutting machine cutting metals?

Fiber laser cutting machine.

                      Fiber laser cutting machine.

Above all, reasons.

First,chemical reaction.

The gas will start chemical reaction with the metal material. It will increase the working capacity.

Second, clean.

The gas can blow off the slag by air and clean the cutting seam.

Third, avoid shape change of the material.

The gas will cool the area around cutting seam. It can avoid shape change of the material.

Last but most important, protect the lens.

To protect the focus lens. Avoid combustion products hurting lens.

Besides functions.

Normally, O2 ( Oxygen) , N (Nitrogen) and Compressed Air will be used.

Their functions are as following.

First, N: Nitrogen is used for cutting nonferrrous metal. Such as Stainless Steel and Aluminum sheet. The gas can cool and protect the material. As such materials are easy to be blackened with Oxygen.So use Nitrogen can avoid this phenomenon of going black. It can be used to cut

aluminum alloy, stainless steel, galvanized steel sheet, brass.

Second, O2: Oxygen is used in cutting Carbon Steel and stainless steel. As there is many Carbonaceous impurities in carbon steel. So use O2 can greatly increase the combusting speed. Which as well, accelerating cutting speed. However, there is a disadvantage, the cutting surface will be black.

Third, Compressed Air: It can be provided by Air Compressor, the price is very low. Although there is about 20% Oxygen in air. The cutting efficiency is far less than Oxygen.It nearly same as Nitrogen’s efficiency.The cutting surface appears yellow. It can be used to cut aluminum, aluminum alloy, stainless steel, galvanized steel sheet, nonmetal, etc.

The reasons for laser nozzle failure during laser cutting -Ariel

The reasons for laser nozzle failure during laser cutting

Today, XT laser gives you a deeper understanding of The reasons for laser nozzle failure during laser cutting. In the previous blog we mentioned The influence of the nozzle on the laser cutting quality and some considerations during the use of the nozzle.

If you face the problem of nozzle failure during the cutting process, how to deal with it in time.

With the rapid development of social economy, fiber laser cutting machines rely on the advantages of “low energy consumption, no pollution, simple operation” become rapidly popular.

However, due to some improper operation factors, people may block or damage the laser nozzle .

Thereby causing the cutting precision of the laser cutting head, and affecting the service life of the cutting machine.

This article focuses on the main causes of laser nozzle failure.

Follow me please.

First of all, we know that laser cutting nozzles have single and double layers.

The nozzles range in diameter from 1.0 mm to 3.0 mm and with 5 taper holes.

These features do not guarantee that the nozzle will dissipate heat and it is not easy to get slag.

However, due to features in the nozzle itself and the performance of the cutting machine, it is easy for the nozzle to wear  out.

1. The nozzle “chip”, the aperture becomes larger of fiber laser cutting machine

Single-layer laser nozzles are easily deformed by flaws due to the soft material.

And in the process of mechanical operation, the nozzle will directly contact the slag.

2. The nozzle is deformed and the slag particles damage the inner lens

In the laser cutting process, there are two cases:

When the laser cutting head is  in the vertical direction, the mechanical sensing protection mechanism will stop the machine.

Then people can naturally think the collision from the horizontal direction as a collision with the laser cutting head due to the lifting of the cutting material.

When the laser cutting head is stressed, the sensor protection mechanism can stop the mechanical operation in time.

And the nozzle directly contacts the material, causing the nozzle to deform.

Continue cutting; when the laser head is lightly stressed, the sensing protection mechanism can not shut down the machine in time, causing the nozzle to enter the slag.

And the high pressure airflow will blow the slag into the laser head to cause loss.
