The difference between fiber laser cutter and plasma cutter

The difference between fiber laser cutter and plasma cutter, in current machining production, laser cutting and plasma cutting techniques using widely because of their respective advantages.

So, where is the difference between a fiber laser cutter and a plasma cutter? Do you know?

As a new type of tool, fiber laser cutting machine is more and more mature and apply to various industries.

Then, including the emerging small-format precision laser cutting machine, precious metal laser cutting machine, flexible circuit board laser cutting machine, etc.

Roughly the same. It uses the laser beam emitted from the laser generator to be focused into a high power density laser beam irradiation condition through the optical path system.

The workpiece material is absorbing laser heat, and the temperature of the workpiece rises sharply.

After reaching the boiling point, the material begins to vaporize and form a hole.

In addition, the high-pressure gas coaxial with the beam directly removes the molten metal, thereby achieving the purpose of cutting.

Which indicates that the laser cutting process is substantially different from the machining of the machine tool.

About CNC plasma cutting machine

The CNC plasma cutting machine is a new type of thermal cutting equipment.

Its working principle is to use a high-temperature plasma arc heat to partially melt the metal at the workpiece incision.

Then, and to remove the molten metal by high-speed plasma momentum to form a slit.

The plasma cutting machine becoming more popular at present.

And the working gas are using to have a significant influence on the cutting characteristics of the plasma arc as well as the cutting quality and speed.

Fiber laser cutting machine advantages

1)The laser cutting machine replaces the traditional mechanical knife with an invisible beam, and does not scratch the working surface during the work;

2)Fast cutting speed, smooth slit and flat, and generally no subsequent processing is requiring;

3)The cutting heat affected zone is small, The deformation of the sheet is small, the slit is narrow;

4)The slit has no mechanical stress and no shear burr;

5)Then, high processing precision, good repeatability, and don’t damage the surface of the material;

6)The numerical control programming can process any plan view, and can cut the whole board with a large format. No need to open the mold, the economy is time-saving.
