First, fiber laser cutting machine vs traditional cutting
The traditional cutting process includes flame cutting, plasma cutting, water jet cutting, wire cutting and punching, etc. As a new process in recent years, the china laser cutter irradiates a laser beam with a high energy density onto the work pieces to be processed. The local heat is melted, and then the slag is blown off by the high pressure gas to form the slit. The china laser cutter has the following advantages: 1. the slit is narrow; 2. the precision is high; 3. the slit has good roughness; 4. the subsequent process is not required after the cutting reprocessing.
The laser processing system is a computer system actually, which can be easily arranged and modified, and suitable for individualized processing, especially for some sheet metal parts with complicated contour shapes. The batches are not large in size, and the product life cycle is not long, considering the economic cost and time, it is not cost-effective to manufacture molds, and laser cutting is particularly advantageous.
The laser processing has high-energy density, short time, heat affected zone is small, small thermal deformation, small thermal stress, and laser non-mechanical contact processing, which has no mechanical stress on the work piece and is suitable for precision machining.
The high-energy density of the laser is sufficient to melt any metal, and is particularly suitable for processing materials that are difficult to process by other processes with high hardness, high brittleness, and high melting point.
The processing costs are low, the one-time investment in equipment is more expensive, but continuous, the large-scale processing ultimately reduces the processing cost of each part.
The laser is non-contact processing, with low inertia and fast processing speed. It is compatible with the CAD/CAM software programming of the CNC system, which saves time and convenience and has high overall efficiency.
The laser has a high degree of automation and can be completely enclosed, with no pollution and low noise, which greatly improves the working environment of the workers.
Second, fiber laser cutting machine vs the early laser cutting
The laser is transmitted to the focusing head through the optical fiber, and the flexible connection method is easy to be automated with the production line.
The ideal beam quality of the fiber greatly improves the cutting quality and work efficiency.
The extremely high-stability of the fiber laser and the long--life of the pump diode determine that it is not necessary to adjust the current to adapt to the aging of the xenon lamp like the traditional lamp-pumped laser, which greatly improves the stability of the production and the consistency of the product.
The photoelectric conversion efficiency of the fiber laser is higher to 25%, the system consumes less power, has a small volume, and occupies less space, with the compact structure, high system integration, easy to use, no optical adjustment, low maintenance or even no need to maintenance, truly achieve "landing light", plus impact vibration, dust resistance, it’s really suitable for industrial processing applications .
