Application direction of laser cutting equipment

May 09,2023 | TOPTEK

Laser cutting machine processing replaces traditional mechanical knives with invisible beams. It has the characteristics of high precision, fast cutting, not limited to cutting patterns, automatic typesetting to save materials, smooth incision, and low processing cost. It will gradually improve or replace Compared with traditional metal cutting process equipment.

The mechanical part of the laser cutter head has no contact with the workpiece, and will not scratch the surface of the workpiece during work; the laser cutting speed is fast, the incision is smooth and flat, and generally no subsequent processing is required; the cutting heat-affected zone is small, the deformation of the plate is small, and the kerf is narrow ( 0.1mm~0.3mm).
The incision has no mechanical stress and no shearing burrs; the machining accuracy is high, the repeatability is good, and the surface of the material is not damaged; the numerical control programming can process any plan, and can cut the whole board with a large format without opening a mold, which is economical and time-saving.
Copper is not suitable for laser cutting, it is cut very thin. Most of titanium, titanium alloys, and nickel alloys can be cut by laser.

At present, the application direction of laser cutting equipment on the market mainly falls into the following three categories:
The first category is processing materials for decoration, advertising, lamps, kitchen utensils, thin sheet metal parts, electrical cabinets, elevator panels, engineering panels, and high and low switch cabinets. These materials are generally thin, stainless steel plates with a thickness of 1-5mm Materials can be cut with a medium-power laser cutting machine. For cutting such materials, you can consider buying a yag laser cutting machine or a fiber laser cutting machine.
The second category is to cut plastic (polymer), rubber, wood, paper products, leather, and natural or synthetic organic materials. Since these items are not metal products, the absorption of laser light is also different, so this type of material is best. Cutting with CO2 laser cutting machine.
The third category is low-carbon steel and stainless steel with a thickness of 8-8. This type of material requires a high-power laser cutting machine to cut quickly and instantly. You can consider buying a high-power fiber laser cutting machine or a high-power CO2 laser cutting machine. 
Therefore, when we choose laser equipment, we should not only consider the characteristics of our product materials, but also consider the performance of laser equipment, so that we can find laser equipment suitable for our industry products.
