Laser cutting technology
Laser cutting technology uses the energy released when the laser beam irradiates the steel plate surface to melt and evaporate the stainless steel. The laser source is usually a CO2 laser beam with a working power of 500-2500 watts. This power level is lower than that required by many domestic electric heaters, but the laser beam is concentrated in a very small area through the lens and reflector. High concentration of energy enables rapid local heating and evaporation of stainless steel. In addition, because the energy is very concentrated, only a small amount of heat is transferred to other parts of the steel, resulting in little or no deformation. It is very accurate to cut the complex shape blank with laser, and the cutting blank does not need further processing.
Using laser cutting equipment can cut stainless steel less than 4mm, adding oxygen in the laser beam can cut stainless steel with thickness of 8 ~ 10mm, but after oxygen cutting, thin oxide film will be formed on the cutting surface. The maximum thickness of cutting can be increased to 16mm, but the dimension error of cutting parts is large.
Laser cutting reduces the cost of subsequent processing, and it is feasible to use this equipment in large-scale production. Because there is no tool processing cost, laser cutting is also suitable for the production of small quantities of parts of various sizes that can not be processed previously.
How to choose a suitable laser cutting machine?
At present, there are dozens of laser enterprises in China. The application of laser cutting machine in various industries has played an important role in promoting the brand competitiveness of our country. But in the face of so many enterprises, how to choose the right processing equipment, so that the enterprise's investment to obtain greater returns? The following Dongguan laser cutting machine brand manufacturer Xinke laser from the following aspects of the purchase of laser cutting machine need to pay attention to the place to explain, hope to have a little help to you.
First, how to choose the right model
Enterprises in the purchase of equipment, first to make clear their own enterprise's production scope, processing materials and processing capacity, so as to determine the type of equipment to be purchased, format and quantity, to make a simple bedding for the later procurement work. When necessary, we can consult the relevant professional personnel of laser equipment manufacturer for relevant technical problems, or invite professional personnel to carry out on-site simulation or provide solutions. At the same time, we can also take our own materials to the manufacturer for injection and proofing.
Second, we should pay attention to quality and service
Product quality and service is an important link in improving the competitiveness of enterprises. If the repair rate of the equipment purchased by a company is relatively high, how can the enterprise produce such equipment, recover the cost and improve the economic benefits? The reputation of the equipment enterprise that produces such products will not be good. The first factor of choosing laser cutting machine is the stable performance and good quality of the equipment. At present, many small laser equipment manufacturers have a lot of product quality problems. This requires us to polish our eyes when purchasing, analyze its structure, understand whether its mechanical performance is reasonable and reliable, whether software control is convenient for operation, whether the connection between computer and equipment is convenient, and whether the operation process is clearly displayed.
Any equipment in the process of using will appear different degrees of damage, so in terms of maintenance after damage, whether the maintenance is timely and the level of charge has become the second problem to be considered. Therefore, in purchasing, we need to understand the after-sales service problems of enterprises through various channels, such as how the response mechanism is, whether the maintenance charge is reasonable, and so on.
In fact, purchase is a very simple process, and selection is the most important, which needs more investigation. But Dongguan laser cutting machine brand manufacturer Xinke laser reminds everyone to pay attention to their own in the use process to seize the opportunity, learn simple equipment maintenance, so as to use the laser cutting machine.
