What Kind Of Laser Cutting Machine We Should Choose? CO2 Or Fiber Laser Cutting Machine?

CO2 laser cutting machine,is a type of laser cutting machine ,espically used for cutting industry like textile cutting ,fabric cutting,wood cutting,metal cutting ,acrylic cutting and etc.Meanwhile,fiber laser cutting machine become more and more popular nowdays in cutting industry .So what kind of laser cutting machine we should choose ?

applications of laser cutter

It depends on the type and thickness of the material you are cutting.Due to the rate at which the material absorbs the laser. You need to choose the right laser for your application.

Different laser cutter for different applications

CO2 Laser

1,Quality – Quality is consistent throughout all thicknesses of material.

2,Flexibility – high, suitable for all material thicknesses.

3,Safety – CO2 laser light (10µm) is better absorbed by the machine frame, which lowers the risk of irreparable damage to the retina. Personnel should not look directly at the cutting process through the acrylic pane in the door as the bright plasma also presents a risk to sight over a period of time. (Similar to looking at the sun.)

4,Beam guidance – mirror optics.

5,Cutting with Oxygen (flame cutting) – there is no difference in quality or speed shown between the two types of lasers.

Fiber Laser

1,Speed – Faster than CO2 lasers in thin materials as the laser can be absorbed quickly with a slight lead in speed when cutting with Nitrogen (fusion cutting).

2,Cost per part – less than the CO2 laser depending on sheet thickness.

Safety – Strict safety precautions must be taken (machine is completely enclosed) as the laser light (1µm) can pass through very narrow openings in the machine’s frame causing irreparable damage to the eye’s retina.

3,Beam guidance – fiber optics.

So from above all, do you know which types laser cutting machine we should choose ? I think you get it ,and what is more,if you need know more or buy laser cutting machine ,please free contract with me !
