Metal laser cutting machine from the advent to now, has been gradually recognized by the majority of consumers, then in the laser cutting machine what traditional cutting method incomparable advantages?
First let's look at the characteristics of laser cutting and linear cutting:
The latest mainstream laser cutting equipment, mainly optical fiber laser cutting machine and CO2 laser cutting machine.
Current CO2 laser cutting machine is mainly used for cutting thick plate, can achieve cutting non-metallic materials.
Main features of laser cutting: fast cutting speed, good cutting quality, low processing cost.
Traditional wire cutting:
Wire cutting can only cut conductive materials, which limits its range of applications and requires cutting coolant during the cutting process.For example, leather, they are not suitable for use, it is not afraid of water, not afraid of cutting fluid pollution, can not be cut with the line.
In addition, according to the type of wire used, the current wire cutting is divided into fast line and slow line.The wire is made of molybdenum wire and can be used for multiple cuts.Wires are slow to use and can only be used once.
P: metal wires are used more often than molybdenum wires because they are cheap.
Advantages of traditional linear cutting: it can be achieved in a single form of slab cutting, but the cutting edge will be very rough.
Having said the characteristics of laser cutting and conventional linear cutting, let's briefly compare their cutting principles and disadvantages:
Principle of laser cutting: the high temperature generated by high energy density laser beam melts the incision of cutting material, thus realizing cutting.Therefore, the metal material cut should not be too thick, or the heat-affected zone may be too large to cut.
Laser cutting is used in a wide range of applications. It can cut most metals and is not restricted by shape.
Conventional wire-cutting principle: a metal wire is cut with molybdenum wire, which is electrified to produce a high temperature cutting material to be cut, usually as a mold.The heat affected region is more uniform and smaller.It can achieve thick plate cutting, but the cutting speed is slow, can only cut conductive materials, the construction surface is small.
The disadvantage is the existence of consumables, processing costs higher than the cost of laser cutting.
To sum up, the two have their own advantages and can basically complement each other.However, with the development of industrial demand, processing enterprises have higher and higher requirements for mass production, which means that the higher the work efficiency, the higher the speed of metal cutting. High-quality, low-cost laser cutting technology is more suitable for modern production needs, while linear cutting is gradually losing its market competitiveness.
Laser cutting machine development, because of the increase in the number of manufacturers, the price of laser cutting machine is falling again and again.There are many sheet metal, metal processing industry do not choose laser cutting machine has a large part of the reason in their "chicken rib" traditional cutting equipment.More should take out courage to give up the development of the clamping factory "chicken ribs" to buy a laser cutting machine is not expensive in fact, enjoy the high-speed precision processing
