Nowdays, fiber laser cutting machines
are replacing CO2 laser cutting machines, becoming the largest share of laser cutting equipment.
What are advantages of fiber laser cutting machine?
Fiber laser cutting machine VS CO2 laser cutting machine
Compared to CO2 laser cutting machine has cutting speed and quality, fiber laser cutting machine can do it well,while significantly reducing maintenance and operating costs.
With the complete solid-state digital module and single design of the fiber laser, the fiber laser cutting system has higher electro-optical conversion efficiency than CO2 laser cutting. For power unit of CO2 cutting system, the actual utilization is about 8% to 10%, while the fiber laser cutting system power efficiency is about 25% to 30%.
Fiber lasers have short-wavelength characteristics that increasing the absorption of the beam by the cutting material and can cut more materials,such as brass or non-conductive materials.because of fiber laser cutting machine has concentrated beam that can produce a smaller and spot, so which cut thinner or medium thickness materials more efficiently.
The CO2 laser cutting system requires regular maintenance,such as,mirrors calibration and resonant cavity maintenance; while the fiber laser cutting system almost no maintenance required. Compared to CO2 laser cutting systems, fiber laser cutting machine are more environment friendly and energy consumption.
