The laser cutting machine is now gradually replacing the traditional processing equipment, which has high precision, fast cutting, not limited by the cutting pattern restrictions, automatic positioning to save material, smooth kerf, low processing cost and other characteristics, compared with the traditional flame, punch and other processing technologies has huge advantages.
In the operation of the laser cutting machine, the mechanical part of the laser head and the workpiece without contact, in operation will not cause scratches on the surface of the workpiece; laser cutting speed, smooth and flat cut, as a rule, without post-processing; cutting heat-affected zone is small, small plate deformation, narrow gap, positioning accuracy and repeat positioning accuracy up to 0.03mm.
Secondly, the current application of laser cutting equipment in the market is divided into two types – metal and non-metal.
Metal laser cutting machine is used for decoration, advertising, lamps, kitchen utensils, sheet metal parts, electrical cabinets, elevator panels, engineering plates, high and low switchgear materials processing, steel structure, automobile manufacturing and other large equipment, generally thickness plate usually ranges from 1-30mm, laser cutting machine power 1000W-20000W laser cutting machine can be cut.
The non-metal laser cutting machine is designed for cutting plastic (polymer), rubber, wood, paper products, leather and natural or synthetic organic materials, since such products are not metal, the absorption of laser light is not the same, so these materials are best cut with a machine CO2 laser cutting machine.
Therefore, when choosing a laser cutting machine, one should first distinguish between metal and non-metal models, types, and then according to the specific type and thickness of the material being cut
