12kw Fiber laser cutter–Oriole

12kw fiber laser cutter

Firstly, changes to the sheet metal processing industry

12kw fiber laser cutter

                               12kw fiber laser cutter

The first is to increase the thickness range of different plate processing. In the period of CO2 laser cutting, the maximum power of the laser is under  6000w. The thickness of early fiber laser cutting plates is carbon steel within 20mm and stainless steel within 12mm. Thicker materials are still Traditional processing techniques such as fine plasma, wire cutting or waterjet cutting.

Ten thousand watt fiber laser cutting is the first revolutionary change in the field of sheet metal processing. This is the continuous improvement of the thickness of different materials: aluminum alloy plates can reach 40mm, and stainless steel plates can reach 50mm. With 12kw and 15kw fiber laser cutting machines With the continuous introduction of the, the thickness limit of material cutting will continue to be broken, and the processing price of thick plates will be further reduced, which will trigger more laser applications in the latter half of the field, such as shipbuilding, nuclear power, and national defense. As a result, a virtuous circle is formed, and as a result, a field of use for promoting laser cutting is further expanded.

Secondly, Economic benefit

In addition to the increase in cutting thickness, the cutting efficiency of 10,000-watt laser cutting in the field of medium and thin plates is also improved by multiple levels. When cutting stainless steel plates with a thickness of 3-10mm, the cutting speed of the 10kw laser cutting machine is more than twice that of 6kw. At the same time, the 10kw laser cutting machine can reach 18-20mm/s in the application of carbon steel cutting. Fast double-sided cutting is twice the speed of ordinary standard cutting. It can also cut carbon steel within 12mm with compressed air or nitrogen. And the cutting efficiency is six to seven times the speed of oxygen cutting carbon steel.

The efficiency of high-power laser cutting of thin plates has greatly surpassed people’s past imagination. This is the main reason why high-power laser cutting machines are popular in the sheet metal market. From the perspective of economic benefits, the price of a 10kw laser cutting machine tool is less than 40% higher than that of a 6kw machine tool, but the output efficiency per unit time is more than twice that of a 6kw machine, and it saves labor and space. To the favor of laser processing business owners.

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.

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.
