Do You Know How Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Work?

Laser cutting machine ,as we all know ,it is a machine work for cutting ,different from other type cutting machine ,laser cutting machine use laser cutting .This machine has many advantages :better cutting quality ,quickier cutting speed ,safer cutting operation and etc ,so more and more factories choose laser cutting for different applications:textile,fabric,leather,acrylic,metal ,wood and so on .

applications of laser cutting machine

Laser cutting machines are divided into two types:CO2 laser cutting machine and fiber laser cutting machine .Do you know how those laser cutting machine work ?In last news,I have told you how CO2 laser cutting machine work ,today , I will tell you how fiber laser cutting machine work .

Fiber laser machine is a laser in which the active gain medium is an optical fiber doped with rare-earth elements such as erbium, ytterbium, neodymium, dysprosium, praseodymium, thulium and holmium. They are related to doped fiber amplifiers, which provide light amplification without lasing. Fiber nonlinearities, such as stimulated Raman scattering or four-wave mixing can also provide gain and thus serve as gain media for a fiber laser.


how fiber laser cutting machine work

Widely applications of fiber laser cutting machine,do you know how fiber laser cutting machine work ?

Efficiency is good, but the energy not producing coherent laser light must be dissipated with a cooling system, placing a practical limit on the amount of power a commercial cutting of welding device can use. Fiber lasers use optical fibers, “pumped” with diodes to create solid state laser cutting machines with far fewer components and no gas consumables, lowering operating costs. They also convert pumped energy into laser light at up to twice the efficiency of gas lasers and typically use half the power. The wavelength of light emitted by fiber lasers is also shorter than CO2, typically 1 um, with a very small focal diameter, offering high intensity heating that can be an order of magnitude higher than CO2 technology at similar power levels. They can also cut highly reflective materials such as brass or aluminum, which could damage the optics in a CO2 machine.

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

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 !
