The laser beam is focused to form a very small point of action with very strong energy, and its application in cutting has many functions. First, the laser energy is converted into an amazing heat energy that is kept within a very small area, thus providing narrow straight edge gaps, minimal heat affected zones adjacent to the decorative pieces, and minimal local deformation. Second, the laser beam does not exert any force on the workpiece. It is a non-contact cutting tool, which means that there is no mechanical deformation of the workpiece, no tool wear, and no tool conversion problems; The cutting material does not need to consider its hardness, that is, the laser cutting ability is not affected by the hardness of the cutting material; Third, the laser beam has strong controllability, high adaptability and flexibility, convenient combination with automation equipment, and automatic cutting process. With no workpiece to cut, the limitation of the laser beam is its unlimited contour-cutting ability and, combined with a computer, can be used to drain paper and save material.
Laser cutting has a wide range of adaptability and flexibility
Laser cutting offers greater flexibility than other conventional processing methods. In addition, as a thermal cutting process, other methods cannot act on a small area like a laser beam, resulting in slits, large heat-affected zones, and significant workpiece deformation.
The main features of fiber laser cutting machine:
First, fiber lasers have a high electro-optic conversion efficiency and a conversion efficiency of more than 30%. Low power fiber lasers do not need to be equipped with coolers, but use air cooling, which can greatly save power consumption during operation, save operating costs, and achieve the highest production efficiency. .
Second, the laser only requires electrical energy during operation, without generating additional gas for the laser, so it has the lowest operating and maintenance costs.
Third, the fiber laser adopts semiconductor modular redundancy design, no optical lens in the resonator, no start time, no adjustment, maintenance-free, high stability, reducing the cost of accessories and maintenance time. This is the traditional laser can not compare.
Fourth, the output beam of the fiber laser has good quality and high power density, which is very conducive to the absorption of metal materials, and has excellent cutting and welding capabilities, so that the processing cost is lowest.
Fifth, the whole optical route optical fiber transmission, does not require complex mirror and other optical guide system, the light path is simple, the structure is stable, and the external light path is maintenance-free.
Sixth, the cutting head is equipped with a protective mirror, so the consumption of expensive consumables such as focusing mirrors is minimal.
7. The light is output through optical fiber, making the design of the mechanical system very simple and easy to integrate with the robot or multi-dimensional workbench.
Eighth, fiber lasers are small in size, light in weight, can be moved in the working position and occupy a small area.
Nine, the laser and blinds can be a multi-machine, through the fiber branch, at the same time is divided into multiple channels and multiple units, easy to expand the function, easy to upgrade, simple operation.
