Laser Cutting Machine Big Pk! Optical Fiber, Co2, Yag, How Do You Choose?!


Apr 13.2018
The reason why the optical fiber laser cutting machine is able to keep the heel fast in the market and gradually replace the traditional cutting technology is because of its unique advantages in all aspects, then where is he in the end? We can compare the CO2 laser cutting machine with the YAG laser cutting machine and know it.

First, fiber laser cutting machine PK Co2 laser cutting machine.

1. from the point of view of processing

On the one hand, CO2 laser cutting machine has a wide cutting range, can cut thick metal plates, and high reflective materials such as aluminum plates. For nonmetallic materials such as acrylic, wood materials, PVC and other materials, the cutting thickness of CO2 laser cutting machine can reach 60 millimeters. And the CO2 laser cutting machine adopts continuous laser. When cutting, the cutting surface is smooth and the cutting quality is good.

On the other hand, although the CO2 laser cutting machine is relatively thin, it is very slow when processing thick plate. For thin plate processing, the cutting speed of the same power fiber laser cutting machine is 2-3 times higher than that of CO2, and the cutting section is smooth. In addition, the beam divergence is large, which is not suitable for large format machining.

2. from the cost point of view

The cost of maintenance of the CO2 laser cutting machine is high. Not only the front mirror and tail mirror is expensive, but the turbine bearing life is only 8000 hours, and the replacement cost is 80 thousand yuan per pair. At the same time, CO2 laser cutting machine will produce gas consumption and photoelectric conversion rate is only 8%-10%. Fiber laser cutting machine basically consumables, and its photoelectric conversion rate can reach 30%, which is more energy saving and electricity saving.

3. from the point of view of maintenance

The laser structure of CO2 laser cutting machine is complex, the maintenance is not convenient, the operation requirement is high, and the optical fiber laser cutting machine is easy to maintain, and can be competent for the bad working environment. It has high tolerance to dust, shock, impact, humidity and temperature.

Two, PK YAG laser cutting machine for optical fiber laser cutting machine

1. from the point of view of processing

YAG laser cutting machine costs less, and it can cut high reflective materials, such as aluminum and copper fiber laser cutting machines. But the YAG laser cutting machine is almost clear of a small power laser cutting. It can only cut thin plate materials under 8 millimeters. Compared with the fiber laser cutting machine, the cutting efficiency is much slower than that of the optical fiber, and the efficiency is low. Fiber laser technology can achieve very high power in very small package, so it occupies less space and saves space.

2. from the cost point of view

YAG laser is a laser developed for decades, and its technology is mature. Therefore, the price of YAG laser cutting machine is relatively cheap. But with the popularity of fiber lasers, this advantage is also becoming weaker. In addition, the power consumption of YAG laser cutting machine is larger.

3. from the point of view of maintenance

Because there is no optical lens in the resonator of fiber laser, it has the advantages of no adjustment, no maintenance and high stability. Therefore, device maintenance and replacement is relatively simple. This is incomparable to the traditional YAG laser.
