Laser cutting machine are widely used in aluminum are the reasons?
Along with the advance of technology, there has been a lot of the kinds of laser cutting machine, and also expands the application occasions. And is widely used by aluminum suo with optical fiber laser cutting machine and laser cutting equipment YAG laser cutting machine, the two equipment cutting aluminum or other material cutting materials, such as stainless steel, carbon steel has a good performance. From laser cutting aluminum materials for many years experience, both difference is bigger, can be divided into three levels, one is the quality of the cutting, the second is cutting speed, the third is the cost of production, Here the cost of production is mainly the life of the equipment only loss) 。 1. Cutting quality: high aluminum is the reflection of the material, thus both in optical fiber laser cutting machine and YAG laser cutting machine will not be able to process the thicker aluminum. In addition aluminium material is not high temperature resistant, it's easy to have a burr in the process of cutting aluminum, so need to focus on control process, get the ideal cutting quality. 2. Cutting speed, cutting speed also need to be controlled, fast cutting speed is easy to produce burr, cutting speed too slow will make crack of aluminum materials, influence the cutting quality, therefore need to process control. In general, the same power of laser cutting equipment, optical fiber laser cutting machine cutting speed than the speed of the YAG laser cutting machine. 3. Production costs: laser cutting machine manufacturing cost is very low, far lower than other cutting process. Fiber laser cutting machine and YAG laser cutting machine as a comparison, optical fiber laser cutting cost is lower than the YAG laser cutting machine, the latter often need to change laser light fittings, but from a long-term point of view, the aluminum material for optical fiber laser cutting machine laser damage is serious, greatly reduce the service life of laser, this this point to see YAG is lower than the cost of the optical fiber laser cutting machine. In addition it is important to note that the aluminum has high reflectivity and low absorption of the laser, so need to wear in the manufacturing process of laser protective glasses, protect their own safety.
