Laser cutting machine features: fiber laser compared with CO2 laser

Introduction: before using CO2 laser, optical path adjustment is required. The optical path will directly affect the cutting effect of workpiece, so manual adjustment of optical path and regular maintenance are required.

1. Operation requirements and maintenance

Before using CO2 laser, optical path adjustment is required. The optical path will directly affect the cutting effect of workpiece, so manual adjustment of optical path and regular maintenance are required. YAG solid state laser has obvious thermal lensing effect and needs constant maintenance. Optical fiber laser fiber transmission, no adjustment, no maintenance, high stability, easy to operate.

2. Cutting speed and effect

The cutting speed of fiber laser is 2-3 times that of CO2 laser with the same power. It has prominent advantages in the cutting process of metal plates. It has excellent performance in the other two laser cutting machines with good cutting quality, small gaps and neat edges.

3. Material applicability and application industry

CO2 laser is more widely applicable to materials, while fiber laser is more applicable to metal materials including aluminum, copper and other high reflection materials, which is more in line with the processing requirements of sheet metal manufacturing, 3C home appliance industry and new energy industry.

4. Energy consumption and comprehensive cost

Fiber laser photoelectric conversion rate of more than 30%, with power CO2 laser cutting machine photoelectric conversion rate of about 10% ~ 15%, solid laser photoelectric conversion rate of 3%. The power consumption of fiber laser is only 20-30% of that of CO2 laser with the same power, and the comprehensive cost is lower. Through the comparison, it can be seen that the fiber laser cutting machine in the same conditions of higher efficiency, better cutting effect, maintenance free, but in the purchase cost is slightly higher, large and medium-sized enterprises can give priority to optical fiber equipment.

 

What are the advantages of laser cutting machine in shoemaking industry?

What are the advantages of laser cutting machine in shoemaking industry?

The development of the shoe industry has always depended on manual processing, which requires a lot of human resources, long working hours and high production costs. Laser technology is introduced into the production of shoe industry, and the traditional manual processing is replaced by laser technology, which saves labor, improves work efficiency and saves production cost.

Laser cutting applies to the cutting of shoe industry, it is to use laser irradiation to go up in material, make its gasification, melt or fracture, in order to achieve the goal of cutting.

Laser cutting machine is the use of computer programs to control the movement of the laser head, in the material to form a variety of patterns and shapes, so as to cut computer programs designed product patterns and shapes. The traditional manual processing method is to draw the desired cutting shape on the material now, and then cut it out with tools such as knives and chainsaws, resulting in waste of materials and increasing production costs.

Reduced revenue is quite unfavorable to the customer. And the use of laser technology for processing, not only product quality, cutting effect is good, high efficiency, and can save production costs, improve profits, customers are more willing to try to use laser cutting machine for production and processing.

Although the application of laser cutting machine in China’s shoe industry is at the initial stage, but laser cutting equipment with its superior performance, gradually replaced the traditional processing method, in all walks of life has been more widely used.
