What is the difference between metal and non-metal laser cutting machines

Apr 25,2023 | TOPTEK

CO2 laser cutting machine is mainly used for cutting non-metallic materials, because the wavelength is around the left and right, suitable for cutting non-metallic materials, and it is best to use optical fiber or YAG equipment for cutting metal materials.

During the cutting process of the laser cutting machine, the beam is focused into a small focal point by the lens of the cutting head, so as to achieve high power density at the focal point, and the cutting head is fixed on the z-axis. At this time, the heat input by the beam far exceeds the part of the heat reflected, conducted or diffused by the material, and the material is rapidly heated to the melting and vaporization temperature.

The laser cutting process replaces traditional mechanical knives with an invisible beam of light. It has the characteristics of high precision, fast cutting speed, unlimited cutting patterns, automatic typesetting to save materials, smooth incision, and low processing cost. It will gradually improve or replace it. Traditional metal cutting processing equipment. The mechanical part of the laser cutting head has no contact with the workpiece, and it will not scratch the surface of the workpiece when working.

The laser cutting speed is fast, the incision is smooth and flat, generally no subsequent processing is required; the cutting heat-affected zone is small, the deformation of the plate is small, and the slit is narrow; the incision has no mechanical stress and no shear burrs; the processing accuracy is high, the repeatability is good, and the material is not damaged Surface; CNC programming, can process any drawing, can cut the whole board in a large format, without mold opening, economical and time-saving.
