What are the types of laser cutting machines in all?

According to the different laser generator, the current market laser cutting machine can be roughly divided into three kinds: CO2 laser cutting machine, YAG (solid) laser cutting machine, and fiber laser cutting machine.

The first: CO2 laser cutting machine

CO2 laser cutting machine can cut carbon steel less than 20mm, stainless steel within 10mm and aluminum below 8mm. The CO2 laser has a wavelength of 10.6um, which is easier to absorb by non-metal and can cut wood, acrylic, PP and plexiglass with high quality.

The main advantages:

The power is large and the general power is between 2000-4000W. It can cut all sizes of stainless steel, carbon steel and other conventional materials within 25 millimeters. In addition, because the output of CO2 laser is continuous laser, when cutting, it is the smoothest and best cutting section in these three laser cutting machines.

Main market positioning:

6-25 mm thick plate cutting process, mainly for large and medium-sized enterprises and some pure external processing laser cutting processing enterprises.

Second kinds: YAG (solid) laser cutting machine

YAG solid laser cutting machine has the characteristics of low price and good stability, but low energy efficiency, general <3%. The output power of the product is mostly below 600W. Because of the small output energy, it is mainly used for punching and spot welding and cutting of thin plate. The laser wavelength of YAG solid laser cutting machine is not easily absorbed by non-metal, so it can not cut non-metallic materials.

The main advantages:

it can cut aluminum plates, copper plates and most non-ferrous metal materials that other laser cutting machines can not cut. Low price, low use cost and simple operation and maintenance become its advantages.

Main market positioning:

8mm cutting, mainly for self used small and medium-sized enterprises and processing requirements are not particularly high in the majority of sheet metal manufacturing, home appliances manufacturing, kitchen appliances manufacturing, decorative decoration, advertising and other industry users.

Third kinds: optical fiber laser cutting machine

Cutting thin plates in 4mm has great advantages, but the quality of laser cutting is not good when cutting thick plates. The fiber laser cutting machine has a wavelength of 1.06M and is not easily absorbed by non-metallic materials, so it can not cut non-metallic materials.

The main advantages:

High photoelectric conversion rate and low power consumption can cut stainless steel plates and carbon steel plates within 12MM. It is the laser cutting machine with the fastest speed of cutting thin plates in the three machines, used for fine cutting.

Main market positioning:

Fiber laser cutting machine is mainly used for high precision machining of sheet metal (below 12mm). The main target is manufacturers with high accuracy and efficiency.

Clothing & Garment

Laser cutting machine is a new type of plate processing machinery and equipment at the end of the last century and the beginning of this century. After nearly 20 years of continuous technological renovation and technological development, laser cutting and laser cutting machine are being familiar and accepted by the large plate processing enterprises.
