What does the cutting accuracy of metal laser cutting machine depend on?

As we all know, cutting accuracy is an important part of measuring the quality of laser cutting machine. In fact, the accuracy of metal laser cutting machine is not entirely determined by the equipment itself, but is composed of many factors. After analyzing the laser professional and technical personnel, we have the following major factors.

The shape of a laser beam

We all know that the laser beam is tapered, and the resulting gap is also tapered. In this case, the thickness of 0.3MM stainless steel will be much smaller than that of 2MM. Under this conical laser beam, the greater the thickness of the workpiece is, the lower the accuracy will be, so the larger the slit is.

Light spot size

When the conical laser beam is gathered together, the spot becomes smaller and smaller. Therefore, the accuracy of the laser cutting is also getting higher and higher, especially the width of the slit becomes smaller and smaller. According to our laser professional and technical personnel, at this time, the smallest spot can reach 0.01mm. This is also one of the factors that affect the cutting accuracy of laser cutting machine.

Workbench

Whether it is a simple workbench or a high precision worktable, it will affect the effect of laser cutting.

Workpiece material

The cutting accuracy of laser cutting machine is slightly different for different materials. Even if the same material is used, the accuracy of cutting will vary if the composition of the material is different. Therefore, the material of workpiece has certain effect on the accuracy of laser cutting.
