Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Main Parts – Alex

Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Main Parts

As we all know fiber laser cutting machine can have a great work on different metal sheet. Like stainless steel sheet, carbon steel sheet, galvanized sheet…today we will talk the main part and configuration of the machine.

1. Fiber laser source

Fiber laser metal sheet cutting machine include 6 parts. Laser source, cutting head, control system, drive motor, transmission system, auxiliary system and machine bed.

Laser source is the heart of the whole machine. The most import part of the machine. More than half the value of the whole machine.

1.1 Brand: IPG, Raycus, Nlight and Max

Analyzation: IPG : The best quality in the world, Germany brand.

Raycus: The best quality in China, it’s many customers first choice, Cost-effective

Nlight:It can have a good working specialized on high reflection metal

Max: We used it years ago, high failure rate and regular maintenance, also the customer feedback is not so good, we already stop using it.

2. Laser Cutting head

Directly work to the metal sheet, it’s a part we need take care of.

2.1 Brand: Raytools, Precite

Analyzation:

Raytools: 500W, 750W mainly use the BT210 type, because the poor heat dissipation is not suitable for thick plate; Above the 1000W, BT240 type is a good choice; Also, there is a Auto-focus type. It depending on customers requirements, but for 3000W, most customer will choose it.

Precite: It’s the Germany brand, so we all know it’s good quality. But we need pay attention to the reliable, some factory use the fake brand to earn the money.

2.2 Single spray and double spray

Usually, when we cut the stainless steel, we will choose the single spray. For carbon steel, double spray is a good choice. The metal sheet thicker, the nozzle is bigger.

Please check the picture: Lest side is double spray. Right side is single spray.

3. Control system

It’s the brain of the fiber laser cutting machine.

Brand: Cyput from Shanghai

Analyzation: Most of the Chines factory use this brand. Stable performance, simple operation。

The drive motor, transmission system, auxiliary system and machine bed will be talked on my next article, if you have any thoughts about it, just leave your comments.

4. Drive motor

There are four motors on fiber laser plate cutting machine. one of them on each X axis and Z axis, other two motors on the Y axis. For plate and tube cutting machine, there are seven motors. one of them on each X axis and Z axis, other two motors on the Y axis. Three more motors on the tube part.

5. Transmission Device

Include Guide rail, gear rack, speed reducer. Transmission device can effect on the precision.

Guide rail brand: HIWIN, PMI, ABBA

Gear rack brand: Taiwan YYC, Taiwan KH, we used diagonal scale, it can have a better precision.

Speed reducer brand: SHIMPO(Japan), Motoreduce(France)

6. Auxiliary system

Include water chiller, Cold and dry machine, Air compressor, Stabilizer, Exhaust fan, Industrial computer.

Water chiller brand: Tongfei(Best quality in China), CW and Dongluyang.

We use the Tongfei brand, Tongfei and Dongluyang mainly for low-power. CW6000 we used in the 300w engraving machine. The role of the chiller is to cool the laser, cutting head and fiber head, the role is particularly important.

Cold and dry machine: remove the air in the water and oil

Air compressor: to provide pressure of the gas

Regulator: remove the power grid interference and fluctuations, to meet the requirements of the power needs

Exhaust fan: to provide compliance, to prevent iron flying

Industrial computer: industrial control computer, Advantech, EVOC are more well-known domestic brands

How to prevent dewing of fiber laser cutter generator-Anne

How to prevent dewing of fiber laser cutter generator

SO In hot summer, fiber laser cutter generator is easy to dew because of  the frequent rainfall. Under this circumstances,its performance will reduce. Customers must pay attention to preventing this phenomenon when using fiber laser cutter.

So what does dewing mean?

Dewing is a physical phenomenon.It will appear when the temperature of object surface is lower than its surroundings.

There are a few ways to avoid dewing.

※If the fiber laser cutter generator is installed in an environment without air conditioning,configuring a separate air-conditioned room.

※If the fiber laser cutter generator  install in an environment with air conditioning, keeping refrigeration temperature of the air conditioning is consistent with the cooling water temperature.

※Add an evaporator between the gas source and the processing head, keep the gas temperature close to the ambient temperature.

Although dewing cannot avoid ,we must remind everyone to minimize the temperature difference between the operating environment and the cooling temperature.

We,XT Laser ,are field laser machine more than 14 years. We are dedicated to providing good after-sales service to customers.

If you have any problems,welcome to contact us. We will try our best to help you.

The thickness of the carbon steel cut, the laser output power decide the cutting thickness.

Take carbon steel as an example, a 1KW laser cutting machine can cut 10mm, 1.5KW can cut 16mm.

For stainless steel, a 1.5KW laser cutting machine can only cut 5 mm. if Thicker, you need to configure more than 2kw 3kw high-power laser.

However, for carbon steel plates up to 10 mm, a fiber laser cutting machine up to 1000 W can be cutting. Because the cutting width of the laser cutting is narrow, generally between 0.1 and 0.5 mm. the cutting accuracy is very high, less than 0.05 mm.And the distance error of the hole center is between 0.1 and 0.4 mm.And the error of the outline size is also 0.1 to Between 0.5mm. cutting section is smooth.

Some advantages of fiber laser cutting:

Firstly, the accuracy is high. the positioning accuracy is 0.05mm, and the repeat positioning accuracy is 0.02mm.

Secondly, the cutting quality is good.no contact cutting, the heat effect of the cutting edge is very small. There is basically no heat deformation of the work piece.completely avoid the formation of the edge of the material punching. the slit generally does not require secondary processing.

Thirdly, the hardness of the material being cut.The laser can process steel plates, stainless steel, aluminum alloy plates, hard alloys, etc. No matter what kind of hardness, it can cut without distortion.

Finally, saving investment in the mold. Laser processing does not require a mold, no mold consumption, no need to repair the mold, saving the time to replace the mold. Thus saving processing costs and reducing production costs, especially for large-scale product processing.

Fiber laser cutting machine delivery.

Glad to share with you, yesterday,we finished 4 sets machine delivery.

One is for Russia,one is for Iran,one is for Romania,and one is for domestic customers,pictures as below.

Fiber laser cutting machine delivery 
 

Firstly,Compared with CNC punch, fiber laser cutting machine can complete a variety of complex structures. As long as any image can be drawn on the computer, the machine can finish the processing.

According to our experience, punching machine mould is expensive.But for fiber laser cutting machine,no need to open the mold, the figure will be made on the computer, the product can be cut out immediately, that can quickly develop new products, but also cost savings, complex process requirements.

CNC punch difficult to achieve, but fiber laser cutting machine can do it

In addition, For CNC punching machine,  if cut whole plate, the result is not very good, need arrange worker to polish again.

fiber laser cutting machine cutting the surface is very smooth, CNC punching machine is difficult to achieve.

Thirdly,But fiber laser cannot cut semi-hole(not cut whole hole off) but punching machine can cut semi-hole, just like fish scale. And punching machine punch very small hole, speed also is faster than fiber laser.

AMADA is a very famous company in the world. Punching machine and fiber laser all has their own advantages, to be honest with you, fiber laser cannot instead of punching machine completely. But if you can combine those 2 types machine together, you must save a lot of cost !

High Reflective Material Fiber Laser Cutting Machine – Alex

Now fiber laser cutting machine have very wide application and we can see its application nearly in all metal fields. Its main cutting material include stainless steel, carbon steel, galvanized sheet, brass, aluminum etc. In all of these metals, ss and cs is the most common material. Brass and aluminum are high reflective material, they can reflect large quantity laser light back into laser generator then damage the laser source.

Common laser generator

In China market, there is many brand laser generator. Now the main brand include Raycus, IPG, nLIGHT, MAX, CAS, JPT etc. In all of these brand, Raycus is the best Chinese brand and it have very high cost performance. IPG is the best brand all over the world, but its price is very high. Actually, these two brand occupy very big market in market.

Although these two brand laser source are very popular, they have a big disadvantage. Due to high reflective will reflective most laser light, it will make laser source become very very hot and damage it. No any of them can cut aluminum and brass.

nLIGHT fiber laser cutting machine

Compared with IPG and Raycus fiber laser cutting machine, nlight laser source have big advantage on high reflective material cutting. Why nLIGHT laser can do it?

nLIGHT company in order to solve this company, they do many research and develop one new technology. nLIGHT laser have special protective lens in laser generator. It can avoid reflective laser back into laser source. So nLIGHT laser have big advantage on aluminum and brass cutting. Now we have many customer use it on aluminum cutting.

Of course, aluminum and brass can only absorb few laser power so its cutting ability is limited. We need use high power laser when cut aluminum and brass. Even in this case, its cutting speed is much more lower then other material.

Why is Fiber laser cutting machine better than CO2 and YAG?-Anne

Why is Fiber laser cutting machine better than CO2 and YAG?

The reason why the fiber laser cutting machine can quickly occupy the market and gradually replace the traditional cutting process, is that it has many obvious strengths.

So why is it better? Let’s make a comparison among fiber, CO2 and YAG laser cutting machine.

Fiber laser cutting machine VS CO2 laser cutting machine


      1.process

On one hand, CO2 laser cutting machine has a wide range of cutting,which can cut thick metal sheet and high reflective material like aluminum plate.

For non-metallic materials like acrylic, wooden materials, PVC materials etc, the cutting thickness could be up to 60 mm. Because of the continuous laser, cutting surface is smooth and of high quality.

On the other hand, the cutting seam of CO2 laser cutting machine is thin, but the speed of cutting thick sheet is very slow.

What’s more, for thin sheet processing, fiber laser of equal power with smooth cutting section cuts 2-3 times faster than CO2 laser. The beam of CO2 laser is divergent and not suitable for large machining

    2.cost

The maintenance cost of CO2 laser cutting machine is very high, not only front lens and back lens are expensive,but also the working life of turbine bearings is shorter than one year and ¥80000/pair for new.

At the same time CO2 laser cutting machine would consume gas during processing, and the photoelectric conversion rate is only 8% to 10% .

But fiber laser cutting machine almost consumes no material during processing and photoelectric conversion rate can reach 30%, which is more economic.
3.maintance

CO2 laser cutting machine laser has complex structure, inconvenient maintenance and high operation requirements,

but the optical fiber laser cutting machine has simpler maintenance, and high tolerance of dust, shocks , temperature and humidity in poor work environment.

  fiber laser cutting machine VS YAG laser cutting machine


       1.process
The cost of YAG laser cutting machine is low, can cut high reflective material like aluminum, copper and nonferrous metal materials that fiber laser cutting machine can’t cut.

But most YAG laser cutting machine are of low power, can only cutting thin sheet materials which are under 8mm, and much slower than fiber laser cutting machine.

Fiber laser technology can achieve very high power in a very small package, covering a small area, saving space.
       2.cost
YAG laser has been developed for decades with mature technology, thus the price of which is cheap. But with the popularity of fiber laser, this advantage is becoming weaker and weaker. What’s more, the power consumption of YAG laser is higher

  3.maintance
There is no optical lens in the resonant cavity of fiber laser, taking the advantages of high stability and avoiding the adjustment and maintenance. So the replacement of device maintenance is much simpler than the traditional YAG laser.

In summary,we made a conclusion that, the advantages of fiber laser cutting machine are more obvious .

But in fact the three types of laser cutting machine have their own characteristics,

we should make a reasonable choice according to our own demand and budget in the practical application.

Welcome to contact us,if you have any questions about machine ,we will provide solution for you .

Common Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Application Fields – Alex

Fiber Laser Cutting Machine is one of the most advanced and common solution on metal cutting fields. Follow several industry fields are the most popular application.

1. Sheet-metal working

Sheet metal working is metal plate cutting. We need cut steel plate into various different shape. We know sheet metal working need cut many different shape or parts, if we use punching machine and we will do many different mold. Fiber laser cutting machine is different, we just need input the cutting file to computer then it will do it automatic. Additional, when we need cut same shape next time, we just need find the old file and no need adjust parameter again. Of course, due to fiber laser cutting machine is non-touch working, nearly it have no any parts loss.

2. Kitchen Wares Cutting

Now most new house use stainless steel kitchen wares. Fiber laser cutting machine have big advantage on thin stainless steel cutting.  It have high cutting speed, precision and performance. The most important is it can do customized making and DIY designing.

3. Decoration Industry

Due to fiber laser cutter have very fast cutting speed and can finish many complex shape soon, Decoration company like to use it. Just we design the pattern with CAD, this machine will finish it soon.

Things to Know Before Buying Fiber Laser Cutting Machine-Doris

Things to Know Before Buying Fiber Laser Cutting Machine

Purchasing a fiber laser cutting machine is never a simple thing no matter whether you buy it from local suppliers or overseas suppliers, because it concerns the return your investment will achieve and the benefits your business will receive.

fiber laser cutting machine

fiber laser cutting machine

Before buying a fiber laser cutting machine, some things should be considered to gain the maximum vale from your investment.

Why Choose Fiber Laser Cutting Machine?

Fiber laser cutting machine is now increasingly used in metal processing industries. It has highly powerful fiber laser beam that works on sheet metals with precise and efficient cutting performance. The laser head won’t directly touch the surface of materials so that the cutting effect is completely protect. The auxiliary cutting gas can be chose from oxygen and nitrogen, depending on what metal types you plan to work with. The residues produce in the cutting process could be blown out by auxiliary cutting gas and collect in the waste collection box below the lathe. Hence the total cutting process is clean and environmentally friendly.

When it comes to metal cutting, YAG laser, plasma laser, CO2 laser and fiber laser all are able to cut metals, but with different cutting thickness, speed, precision and efficiency. The main differences lie in that YAG cut metals with higher electrical consumption, low efficiency and high maintenance cost; plasma can be use to cut sheet and thick metals, and it especially works better on thick materials; CO2 laser cutting machine is also suitable for thick metals cutting with higher cost and not very high precision; fiber laser cutter is currently the leading laser cutting solution by virtue of its superior cutting accuracy (0.02mm/min), lower energy consumption, higher productivity and little maintenance.

How to Select a Fiber Laser Cutting Machine for Metals?

Materials

You should decide whether your materials involve steel tubes, for which we could configure an extra fiber laser tube cutting device for the laser equipment. Also, if your materials contain highly reflective metals, such as silver, aluminum, red copper, etc, we would recommend you nLIGHT laser source which is perfectly suitable for reflective materials processing.

Materials Size

Material size is also key to the fiber laser cutting machine selection. It’s decide by the size of both the products you manufacture and workshop space. You should take a careful measurement on them and then decide the size of work table or the lathe of fiber laser cutter.

Cutting Thickness

In order to achieve perfect cutting effect and work efficiency,

the thickness of material has to be match with the wattage of fiber laser cutting machine.

Also your intended productivity per day will help you choose the most

productive wattage which has direct influence on cutting speed.

Still, please note that different metals that have the same thickness require different wattage.

if you are now looking for fiber laser cutting machine, pls consider the above carefully!

Nine standard to determine cutting quality -Anne

Nine standard determine to  fiber laser cutting machine cutting quality

To determine the quality of fiber laser cutting machine quality is the most intuitive to determine the best performance of laser cutting equipment, here we list some of the nine standard.

1. Roughness.

fiber laser cutting machine section will form a vertical pattern, the depth of the groove determines the roughness of the cutting surface, the more shallow the lines, the more smooth cutting section.

Roughness not only affects the appearance of the edge, but also affect the friction characteristics,

in most cases, the need to minimize roughness, so the more shallow lines, the higher the quality of cutting.

2. Verticality.

If the thickness of the sheet metal exceeds 10mm, the verticality of the cutting edge is very important. Far away from the focus, the laser beam becomes divergent, depending on the position of the focus, the cutting is widened toward the top or bottom.

The cutting edge deviates from the vertical line by a few millimeters, the more vertical the edge, the higher the cutting quality.

3. Cutting width.

The width of the cut does not generally affect the quality of the cut, and the cut width has an important effect only when a particularly precise profile is formed inside the part.

This is because the cutting width determines the minimum internal meridian of the contour. When the plate thickness increases, the cutting width The increase.

So want to ensure the same high precision, no matter how much the width of the workpiece, the workpiece in the fiber laser cutting machine processing area should be constant.

4. Lines.

When cutting a thick plate at high speed, the molten metal does not appear in the incision beneath the vertical laser beam, but is ejected later than the laser beam.

As a result, the curved lines are formed at the cutting edge, and the lines follow the moving laser beam.

To correct this problem, the feed rate is reduced at the end of the cutting process, and the behavior of the lines can be largely eliminated.

5.Glitch.

The formation of the burrs determines a very important factor in the quality of the laser cutting, since the removal of the burrs requires additional effort,

so the amount of burr is serious and how much is able to visually determine the quality of the cut.

6. Material deposition.  fiber laser cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine

The fiber laser cutting machine touches a layer of oil containing special liquid on the surface of the workpiece before it begins to melt and pierce.

During the cutting process, due to gasification and various materials do not use, customers with wind blowing in addition to the incision,

but the upward or downward discharge will also form deposition on the surface.

7. Depression and corrosion.

Depression and corrosion have an adverse effect on the surface of the cutting edge, affecting the appearance. They appear in the general should be avoided in the cutting error.

8. Heat affected area.

In metal fiber laser cutting machine , the area is heated along the area near the incision. At the same time, the structure of the metal changes.

For example, some metal will harden. The heat affected area refers to the depth of the area where the internal structure changes

9. Deformation.    fiber laser cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine

If the cutting makes the part heated abruptly, it is deformed.

This is especially important in fine machining because the contours and connectors here are usually only a few tenths of a millimeter wide.

Controlling laser power and using short laser pulses can reduce component heat and avoid deformation.
