FIBER LASER TECHNOLOGY explained in a few sentences ...
WHY COMPANIES BUY FIBER LASER CUTTING MACHINES?
Fiber Laser Cutting machines used to be very expensive. Today prices have gone down considerably. As such these machines have become attractive to a wide varity of industries and companies than ever before.
Due to improvements in production and decreased component costs, these very powerfull and sophisticated machines are now much more affordable and accessible.
- So, what is a Fiber Laser Cutting Machine?
- How are they suitable for many industries?
Fused Machinery will explain this for you in a comprehensive way...
WHAT IS A FIBER LASER CUTTING MACHINE?
Fiber laser cutting machines are the absolute premium of high power, precision metal cutting technology. This technology works on laser beams fired from the laser generator. It focuses on a high power density laser beam via the optical path system. Premium manufacturers provide solutions up to 30kw using high power fiber optic laser sources starting at 500W. These high powered sources can be applied to cut up to 25 mm of mild and stainless steel and up to 15 mm of aluminium. Fiber laser cutting machines, depending on the power and suitability of the laser source, can also process other non ferrous materials (brass, copper, ...) and are available in different sizes (3 x 1,5 m, 4 x 2 m, 6 x 2 m, ...).
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The laser beam strikes the workpiece's surface, causing it to reach the melting or boiling point, while the high-pressure gas aligned with the beam blows away the melted or vaporized metal.
The material is finally cut and slit with the beam movement and the relative position of the workpiece to achieve the purpose of cutting.
Laser cutting uses invisible beams to replace the traditional mechanical knife.
It has fast cutting, high precision, fast cutting, automatic typesetting saving material, no restriction on the cutting pattern, smooth incision, and low processing cost.
WHAT MATERIALS CAN YOU CUT USING A FIBER LASER CUTTING MACHINE?
The finest fiber laser cutting machine can cut a wide range of materials:
• Fiber laser cutting machine can cut mild/carbon steel; the thickness you can cut is determined by the power source you use.
AISI 316L Stainless Steel
• Cutting stainless steel with one of the machines is simple and precise.
• The fiber laser cutter can easily cut aluminum
Copper and brass
Because of their high reflectivity, both of these materials necessitate the use of a specialized reflective absorption protective device* before they can be
processed on a Fiber Laser.
RANGE OF FIBER LASER CUTTING MACHINES
Instead of the original imported 5-axis laser, a fiber laser cutting machine can do the flat cutting, angle cutting, edge neatly, smoothing on the metal plate, and mechanical arm.
When compared to traditional CO2 laser cutting machines, fiber laser cutting machines take up less space and use less gas.
Moreover, they have a higher photoelectric conversion rate, are new energy-saving. As environmental-protection products, they are also among the world's leading technology products.
