What is Fiber Cutting Laser Machine
Fiber Laser cutting machine is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials.
And we use it for industrial manufacturing applications.
But it is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses and hobbyists.
Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics.
We use laser optics and CNC (computer numerical control) to direct the material.
A typical commercial laser for cutting materials would involve a motion control system.
Then follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material.
We use industrial laser cutters to cut flat-sheet material as well as structural and piping materials.
1.Why lasers are used for cutting of fiber laser cutting machine
We use fiber laser cutting machine for many purposes.
One way we use it for cutting metal plates.
On mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum plate, the laser cutting process is highly accurate, yields excellent cut quality.
It has a very small kerf width and small heat affect zone, and makes it possible to cut very intricate shapes and small holes.
Most people already know that the word “LASER” is actually an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
But how does light cut through a steel plate?
The laser beam is a column of very high intensity light, of a single wavelength, or color.
In the case of a typical CO2 laser, that wavelength is in the Infra-Red part of the light spectrum.
So it is invisible to the human eye.
The beam is only about 3/4 of an inch in diameter as it travels from the laser resonator.
It creates the beam, through the machine’s beam path.
It may be bounced in different directions by a number of mirrors, or “beam benders”, before it is finally focused onto the plate. The focused laser beam goes through the bore of a nozzle right before it hits the plate.
Also flowing through that nozzle bore is a compressed gas, such as Oxygen or Nitrogen.
