What are the main considerations when choosing a metal laser cutting machine

XT Laser – Metal Laser Cutting Machine

In recent years, metal laser cutting machine technology has been increasingly widely used in processing industries such as sheet metal and handicrafts, whether in the field of metal cutting or non-metal cutting. The technology of metal laser cutting machines has become quite mature and has a very large market share in the cutting industry. However, many users still have various questions about how to choose a suitable laser cutting machine, How to choose a metal laser cutting machine correctly can be considered from the following aspects:

1. The range of materials processed by the enterprise and the demand for its business

Firstly, we need to consider factors such as our business scope, the thickness of cutting materials, and which materials need to be cut. Then, we need to determine the power size of the equipment to be purchased and the size of the workbench. Currently, the power of fiber laser cutting machines on the market ranges from 500W to 6000W, and manufacturers with average workbench sizes can customize according to customer needs.

2. Preliminary Selection of Manufacturers

After determining the demand, we can go to the market to learn about it or go to peers who have purchased metal laser cutting machines to first check the machine’s performance and basic parameters. Select several manufacturers with strength and favorable prices for preliminary communication and sampling. Later, we can conduct on-site inspections and have more detailed discussions on machine prices, training, payment methods, after-sales service, etc.

3. The size of laser power

When selecting the performance of metal laser cutting machines, we should fully consider our own environment. The size of laser power is crucial, and the cutting thickness determines the power of the laser tube. The larger the thickness, the greater the power selected for the laser tube, which is of great help to the cost control of enterprises.

4. The core part of metal laser cutting machine

We also need to pay great attention to some important components of metal laser cutting machines when purchasing them. Especially laser tubes, laser cutting heads, servo motors, guide rails, refrigeration systems, etc., these components directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of metal laser cutting machines.

5. After sales service

The after-sales service of each manufacturer varies greatly, and the warranty duration also varies. In terms of after-sales service, we not only provide customers with effective daily maintenance plans, but also have a professional training system for machines and laser software to help customers get started as soon as possible.

No matter how well a metal laser cutting machine is done, users will encounter various problems during use. When encountering problems that customers cannot solve themselves, it is particularly important for the manufacturer to provide timely solutions. This is also an important factor that we need to consider when choosing a metal laser cutting machine.
