Application of laser cutter in kitchen industry

Stainless steel kitchen and bathroom products are widely favored by the market for their corrosion resistance, aesthetics and practicality. The traditional sheet metal processing method is cumbersome, time-consuming, and high in labor costs, which cannot meet the needs of the market. With the use of fiber laser cutting machine, a technological innovation has been brought to the kitchen and bathroom supplies manufacturing industry.
Cutting and shaping of stainless steel materials, pattern engraving on metal surfaces, etc., these functions can be completed by automatic programming and cutting of fiber laser cutting machine. Different from traditional processing methods, laser cutting technology has the advantages of high cutting accuracy, fast cutting speed, smooth cutting end surface, and no need for secondary processing.

In addition, it cannot be ignored that the laser cutting method saves a lot of costs for enterprises. Laser cutting does not require molds and knives, which greatly saves mold opening costs.
In the era of personalization, laser cutting technology also satisfies the customization needs of the kitchen and bathroom supplies market. Shorter production cycle, no need to make molds, reducing the time cost of mold opening, no burrs on the processed surface, no need for secondary processing

Taking the most mainstream sheet metal materials 304 and 306 stainless steel in kitchen and bathroom materials, they are widely used in products such as range hood panels, gas appliance panels and other products. The thickness is generally thin, in the range of 0.7-2mm. This kind of stainless steel sheet material is suitable for cutting with a lower power fiber laser cutting machine. For thicker materials such as pool panels and other products, a fiber laser cutting machine with a power of 2000W or above can be used for processing.

Hello everyone, this is martin from XT laser. Today I will talk about the laser cutting machine. We will talk about it from theory, thechonlogy, and key parameters. Next day we will introduce other parts from the parts, application, details.

Firstly, we introduce the theory.

The light is from laser source. And through the light path system. Letting focus into laser beam with high power density. And then the laser beam irradiate to the artifact surface. Let the artifact melt or gasify. At the same time, high pressure gas will blow away the vaporized metal. Finally, Follow the move of laser head, cut the material. At last, Achieve the purpose of cutting.

Secondly, we talk about the technology of laser cutting machine.

First, About vaporized cutting. During the cutting, let the surface of material become to boiling point quickly. And time is very quick. Avoid the heat conduction and melt. Let the material vaporize. Then using gas blow away vaporized materials.

Second, About fusion cutting.  Almost same as vaporized cutting. The machine melt. And using gas blow away the melt materials. Finally, achieve cutting.

Third, About oxidation melting cutting. The melt cutting usually use inert gas. If replaced with oxygen. At last, the materials will be ignited.

Forth, Controlled fracture cutting

Thirdly, we talk about the key parameters.

The laser cutting machine have two technology. One is pulse laser. So it is suitable for metal materials. Another is continuous laser. So it is suitable for non-metal materials. But the second one is the most important technology in laser industry.

Application and Benefits of Laser Cutting System-Chris

Application and Benefits of Laser Cutting System

Application of laser cutting

Laser cutting is a process where a material is cut through the use of a laser beam. This can be for small & fine materials or materials. And the level of thickness (e.g. metal sheets) is much greater. The process simply involves the use of a focused laser beam (e.g. pulsed or continuous wave) to cut a wide range of materials. It has a high level of accuracy. And it is highly repeatable as well. Read more

How to deal with laser cutting machine smoke-Flora

How to deal with laser cutting machine smoke

How to deal with laser cutting machine smoke?

Using a laser cutting machine to cut metal plates will definitely produce smoke and dust. They will float in the air, seriously reducing air quality and destroying the working environment. High concentrations of smoke and dust are also extremely harmful to workers working in it, often causing serious diseases such as respiratory diseases.
How to deal with the smoke generated by the laser cutting machine, what is the best and most effective way to deal with the smoke?
At present, the commonly used laser cutting dust removal methods are mainly divided into two types: dry and wet. The dry type is to add a set of laser cutting dust collection and purification equipment, and the wet type is to place the cutting process on the water to form a water bed cutting platform, which uses the power of the water flow to absorb dust and purify it. After a comprehensive comparison of the two methods, the dry treatment method, especially the blowing and cutting fume purification system, is the most popular in the factory because it is the most convenient to install and the most convenient to use. The smoke generated by laser cutting is concentrated under the cut of the workpiece. Therefore, the present invention is provided with an air suction port under the worktable. The lower part of the worktable is divided into uniform small suction areas, and the generated smoke can be collected by suction In the small cutting area.

One side of the cutting fume purification system platform is also provided with a sliding suction duct, the sliding suction duct is provided with a suction port that can move with the cutting head, and the opposite side is also provided with a blowing port. When soot is produced, the wind from the blowing port blows the soot toward the suction port, thereby achieving a trapping effect with a small air volume and a high soot collection rate.

The collected cutting dust will be evenly transported to the dust removal host for filtering treatment. The installed filter cartridge will intercept dust larger than 0.3μm, thereby completing the purification process of cutting dust. This kind of blowing dust removal equipment has a processing efficiency of more than 90% for laser cutting dust, and the effect is very obvious. Because of its simple installation and low cost, it has become the most popular dust removal method for laser cutting.

How does the nozzle influence the fiber laser cutting ability-Teresa

How does the nozzle influence the fiber laser cutting ability

The relationship between nozzle and cutting quality

When the nozzle center and the laser center are not on the same axis, the effect on laser cutting quality:

1) Affect the cutting section. When the cutting gas is sprayed, it will cause uneven air volume. And it will make the cutting section have melting stains on one side and not on the other side. It has little effect on cutting thin plates below 3mm. When cutting a sheet of more than 3mm, its impact is more serious, and sometimes it will not be able to cut.

2) Influencing the quality of sharp corners, when cutting workpieces with sharp corners or small angles, local overmelting is likely to occur. When cutting thick plates, it may not be possible to cut.

3) Affect the perforation, instability during perforation, the time is difficult to control, the penetration of thick plates will cause overmelting, and the penetration conditions are not easy to grasp, and the impact on thin plates is small.

How to choose the nozzle aperture

There are several types of nozzle apertures: φ1.0mm, φ1.5mm, φ2.0mm, φ2.5mm, φ3.0mm, etc. At present, two kinds of nozzle apertures are φ1.5mm and φ2mm. The difference between the two is:

1) Thin plates below 3mm: use φ1.5mm, the cutting surface will be thin; use φ2mm, the cutting surface will be thicker, and the corners will have melting stains.

2) Thick plates above 3mm: Due to the higher cutting power, the relative heat dissipation time is longer, and the relative cutting time also increases. With φ1.5mm, the gas diffusion area is small, so it is not stable when used, but it is basically usable. With φ2mm, the gas diffusion area is large and the gas flow rate is slow, so the cutting is more stable.

3) The hole diameter of φ2.5mm can only be used for cutting thick plates over 10mm. In summary, the size of the nozzle aperture has a serious impact on cutting quality and perforation quality. At present, laser cutting mostly uses nozzles with φ1.5mm and φ2mm apertures.

Therefore, when the nozzle aperture is larger, the relative protection of the focusing lens is worse. Because the sparks of the melt splash during cutting and the probability of bouncing upward is great, which makes the life of the lens shorter.

The concentricity between the center of the nozzle and the laser

The concentricity between the center of the nozzle and the laser is one of the important factors that cause the quality of the cutting, especially when the workpiece is thicker, its influence is greater. Therefore, the concentricity between the nozzle center and the laser must be adjusted to obtain a better cutting section.

Note: When the nozzle is deformed or there are melting stains on the nozzle, its impact on the cutting quality is the same as described above. Therefore, the nozzle should be placed carefully and not bumped to avoid deformation; the melting stains on the nozzle should be cleaned up in time . The quality of the nozzle has high precision requirements during manufacturing, and the correct method is required during installation. If various conditions are to be changed during cutting due to the poor quality of the nozzle, the nozzle should be replaced in time.

Some tips to help you have a great cutting effect-Teresa

Some tips to help you have a great cutting effect

Some tips to help you have a great cutting effect.

Laser-cut carbon steel, sometimes burrs on the edge of the workpiece, making the surface appear not smooth, and some are difficult to remove, mainly caused by the following:

Firstly,The upper and lower positions of the laser focus are not correct. It is necessary to do the focus position test and adjust according to the offset of the focus.

Secondly,The nozzle selection is not suitable, replace the nozzles.

Thirdly,The purity and pressure of the cutting gas are insufficient, and it is necessary to provide high-quality cutting working gas and increase the pressure.

Fourthly,If cut quadrilateral, the adjacent two sides will have burrs, indicating that the center of the optical path is offset, and readjust the center point of the optical path from the nozzle; if there are burrs on the two parallel sides, There is a problem with the verticality of the machine.

The verticality of the laser head can be taught according to the direction of the burr of the parallel side. Please check whether the roundness of the nozzle of the nozzle has changed. It must be ensured that the roundness of the nozzle is a full circle.

There are many reasons why can not cut off the sheet plate. The most common ones are as follows:

Firstly, The power of the laser is reduced or the lamp is aging, so that the energy of the laser beam is not enough, and the template is not cut. Need to adjust the laser power to replace the laser generator lamp.

Secondly,the cutting speed is too fast, according to the thickness of the cutting plate to select a suitable cutting speed.

Thirdly,Check whether the output pressure of the proportional valve is consistent with the cutting pressure set by the upper computer, and whether the oxygen meter is at the indication of 10 kg.

Then,Check whether the protective lens is damaged or not, and replace the protective lens.

Next,The focus position is not suitable, and the focus position is adjusted according to the type of sheet thickness.

Finally,Under the premise of protecting the lens and cutting speed and air pressure, check whether there is any problem with the fiber interface. If there is no problem with the fiber interface, please check whether the collimating lens and the focusing lens of the laser cutting head are damaged. If there is damage. Please replace it in time.

Hope these tips can help you~~~
