Technical Analysis of Laser Cutting Aluminum Material
From the perspective of cost and input, the widely used aluminum laser cutting equipment for fiber laser cutting machine and YAG laser cutting machine, both of these equipment, whether cutting aluminum or cutting other materials, such as stainless steel, carbon steel and so have Impressive performance.
1. Cutting quality
Aluminum is a highly reflective material, so both fiber laser cutting machine or YAG laser cutting machine can not process thick aluminum. In addition aluminum material is not high temperature, cutting aluminum process prone to burr, so need to focus on control technology, get the ideal cutting quality.
2. Cutting speed
Cutting speed also need to be controlled, too fast cutting speed prone to burrs, too slow cutting speed will make aluminum cracks, have affected the cutting quality, which requires process control. In general, the same power laser cutting equipment, fiber laser cutting machine cutting speed is higher than the YAG laser cutting machine speed.
3. Production costs
Laser cutting machine processing costs are very low, far lower than other cutting process. Fiber laser cutting machine and YAG laser cutting machine as a comparison, fiber laser cutting costs lower than the YAG laser cutting machine, which requires frequent replacement of laser light fixture, but in the long run, the aluminum material on the fiber laser cutting machine Of the laser damage is more serious, greatly reducing the life of the laser, which point of view YAG fiber laser cutting machine than the low cost.
Also note that the aluminum has a high reflectivity, low absorption of the laser, so the process of wearing a laser protection glasses, to protect their own safety.
