Although laser cutting machines have been on the market for many years and are very mature, many users are not very clear about the advantages of laser cutting machines. As an efficient processing equipment, laser cutting machine can completely replace traditional cutting equipment. Many users say that this machine is more suitable for modern product processing. So what are the outstanding advantages of this fiber laser cutting machine compared with traditional cutters?

1. Cutting speed

According to the actual test results of the laser field, the cutting speed of the laser cutting machine is more than 10 times different from the efficiency of the traditional cutting equipment. For example, when cutting a 1mm stainless steel plate, the maximum speed of the laser cutting machine can reach more than 30m per minute, which is beyond the reach of traditional cutting machines.

2. Cutting quality and precision

The traditional CNC punching and flame cutting are contact processing methods, the material damage is large, the cutting quality is low, and the surface can be flattened by secondary processing, and the cutting accuracy is very poor. The laser cutting machine is a non-contact machine, and the damage to the material can be ignored, because the laser cutting machine uses advanced accessories to make the equipment more stable, the cutting precision is more accurate, the error even reaches the precision of 0.01mm, and the cutting surface is smooth and smooth. For some industries that require high precision, they not only save cost, but also save processing time.

3. Easier to use

Both flame cutting and CNC punching require human intervention in the operation of the machine, especially CNC punching, which requires the mold to be designed before cutting. The laser cutting machine only needs to design the cutting pattern in the computer, and any pattern can be imported into the workbench of the laser cutting machine. The equipment will be processed automatically, and the whole process will be automated without manual intervention.

4. The cutting speed is fast, the degree of automation is high, the operation method is simple, the labor relationship intensity is low, and there is no environmental pollution.

Now it's an efficient society and everything needs to be fast and good. In the cutting process of the material, more efficiency improvements are required. Traditional cutting machines are gradually eliminated by the market due to heavy operation and work efficiency problems. Laser cutting machines are the darling of the current market. Because the machine is not only more uniform and accurate in line cutting, but also can improve work efficiency and bring more production value.

5. Comparison of cutting process advantages

The laser cutting machine focuses the laser beam emitted from the laser into a high power density laser beam through the system. The surface of the workpiece is struck to bring the workpiece to its melting or boiling point.

The utility model has the advantages of high flexibility, fast cutting speed, high production efficiency and short production cycle. The laser cutting machine has no cutting force, no deformation during processing, no tool wear, and the CNC machine tool is computerized, which is easy to operate and has a high material utilization rate. At present, the cutting of thin metal mostly adopts laser cutting machine.

Traditional cutting technology, such as CNC shears, can only be used for straight line cutting, which has a disadvantage that cannot be ignored compared to the multi-functional operation of laser cutting machines. Flame cutting has a low investment, but the thermal deformation is large when cutting thin plates, which affects the cutting quality and wastes materials. Without the fast processing speed of laser cutting machine, flame cutting still has advantages in thick plate cutting.
