Flatbed Laser Metal Cutting Machine

How much is a laser cutting machine?

First, what is the thickness of the cut? Generally speaking, laser cutting is recommended to cut carbon steel up to 12mm and stainless steel up to 6mm. There is a misunderstanding that needs to be corrected. The cut thickness of laser cutting is not a high quality cut thickness. What does it mean? For example, the cutting thickness is 16mm, that is, the machine can cut 16mm, but it is not suitable for long-term cutting of 16mm. Just like the top speed of a car is 200 yards per hour, you can’t run 200 yards directly, which will affect the life of the machine.

Second, regarding the level of glitches, this is actually a customer concern. Generally speaking, solid yag has a little burr, which is mainly determined by the thickness of the cut and the gas used. Generally, there is no burr below 4mm, the effect of nitrogen gas is better, the effect of oxygen is second, and the effect of air is poor. Also, if you want less burrs, you can opt for a fiber laser cutter, which cuts very smooth and fast.

Then it is about the configuration of the laser cutting machine. With the development of the laser industry, there are more and more brands of laser cutting machines, the prices are becoming more and more chaotic, and the configuration of the machines is also deviated. Many manufacturers ignore customers with brand names. Here, I want customers to pay attention to the core part of laser cutting: whether the laser and laser head are imported or domestic, branded or non-branded. At the same time, other components of laser cutting, such as whether the motor is an imported servo motor, guide rail, bed, etc., affect the cutting accuracy of the machine to a certain extent. A point that needs special attention is the cooling system of the laser cutting machine – the cooling cabinet. Many companies use home air conditioners directly for refrigeration. In fact, we all know that this effect is very bad. A better approach is to use an industrial air conditioner. Dedicated machines can achieve better results.

The specific operation steps of the laser cutting machine

Strictly follow the regulations, in accordance with the principles of power-on, power-off, etc., power on, do not force shutdown or power on.

Turn on the air switch, emergency stop, key switch (see if the water tank temperature has an alarm display)

Turn on the computer and wait for the computer to fully start before turning on the Start button.

Turn on the motor in turn to make the energy, follow-up, laser, and red light buttons.

Start the machine and import the CAD drawings.

Adjust parameters such as initial processing speed, tracking delay, etc.

Adjust the focal length, center, etc. of the laser cutting machine.

Advantages of Laser Cutting Machines

High precision. The beam has good integrity, stiffness, toughness and ductility after artificial aging, solution treatment and finishing.

efficient. The lighter beam can ensure the fast operation of the equipment, improve the processing efficiency, and ensure the processing quality at the same time.

It can not only ensure the high-speed operation of the laser cutting machine, but also ensure the accuracy and efficiency of the cutting process. Effectively improve the service life and accuracy of the laser cutting machine, reduce time costs, and reduce time loss. Using the same time limit, the aluminum beam maximizes cutting accuracy while reducing the kinetic energy of the laser head at high speeds.
