Why choose fiber lasers for metal cutting
Why choose fiber lasers for metal cutting.
Today one of our customer told me they are thinking about Plasma or fiber.
Because their consideration,i just made one comparison between the Plasma and Fiber laser cutting:
|Items||Plasma laser cutting machine||Fiber laser cutting machine|
|Cutting speed||Slowly (time cost is much)||Fast (higher work efficient)|
|Cutting precision||0.1mm||0.05mm (much better)|
|Principle||High temperature arc||Laser energy|
|Material damage||There will be large or small damage,
in the cutting process if the plasma cutting machine cutting head with some problems,
|Laser cutting does not damage the steel
non-contact cutting, will not scratch on the work surface
|Cutting gap||Bigger cutting gap||The laser beam is focused into a small spot,the cutting gap is smaller|
|Flexibility||CNC programming，cause the cutting precision is not enough,can not cut the smaller objects perfectly||CNC programming, can be processed with any cutting patterns ,no need any molds|
However, this customer has been in the furniture manufacturing for many years. So they are so cautions.
Why choose fiber laser for metal cutting.
Firstly, there are many customers who need to cut and mark the stainless steel furniture.They have been using the fiber laser cutting machine and marking machine finally.
Secondly,some customers told us after the using of fiber laser cutting machine,they have reduced their cost.
Beause they used the shearing machine,bending machine,punching machine before the fiber laser cutting machine,there were many processing steps,many workers for different job.
Such as,firstly,they use shearing machine to cut the whole steel sheet,secondly to use the punching machine to different shapes,finally to use bending machine to make the final shape.
So in the processing,there are many drawing line workers,sheet loading workers,and some other processing steps need to do.
But fiber laser cutting machine can cut the whole sheet and cut it in any shapes you need, do not change different kinds of machine.
Thirdly, the fiber laser cutting machine do not need any mold to cut,just import the cutting files into the software,then to cut.For the punching machine, If you want to cut some different shapes,maybe you need to make new molds.My customers told me the new mold is expensive.
So after the comparison,the fiber laser cutting machine can help you to save human cost and time cost,producing cost.For every month ,finally you can save USD2000 or more.
As a manufacturer,save cost,higher work efficient,a better quality with a cost-effective price,thats the longer development goal,right?
And also,if there is anything more you want to know,just tell me.
