Which Power is Better for Your Metal Laser Cutter?

During digital printing industrail, laser cutting machine is popular in printing. Different power in metal laser cutter, cutting capacity and cutting thickness range are not the same. Thus, how to choose its power for you laser cutting machine? Here we take you to understand the understanding.

How the metal laser cutting machine works?

Fiber laser cutting machine metal laser cnc cutting machine has a more prominent advantages. It depends on the laser generated by the high temperature, melting the surface of the sheet metal parts, through the control of displacement, to achieve the purpose of cutting. The advantages of laser processing is mainly reflected in. It does not produce deformation, high degree of flexibility, small slot, smooth section without burrs, to cut any complex graphics workpiece. So, for different thickness, power on the cutting quality and speed plays an important determinant.

We take the common 500W-1000W, for example, for everyone to analyze:

Comparison of cutting process parameters between 500W and 1000W metal laser cnc cutting machine . Carbon steel, when it is lower than 2mm, the use of carbon steel. By 500W machine’s maximum cutting speed is about 6.6 meters per minute. When using 1000W machine to cut the maximum, the cutting speed is about 8 meters per minute; 6mm carbon steel 500W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 0.8 meters per minute, the use of 1000W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 1.6 meters per minute, and so on.

Next, stainless steel, for example, 2mm below the use of stainless steel 500W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 8 meters per minute, while the use of 1000W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 17 meters per minute; 3mm or so stainless steel 500W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 0.4 meters per minute, while the use of 1000W machine cutting the maximum speed of about 1.4 meters per minute, the gap is very obvious. It can be seen that the 1000W fiber laser cutting machine is clearly a more sensible choice when the opposite 500W and 1000W fiber laser cutting machines.

Okay, these all above are my share about the knowledge of metal laser cutter. If you have any other needs or questions welcome to contact us at any time. We will provide you the best quality product and service. Hope my article can be useful to you. Thank you for your reading.
