How to Choose Core Accessories for Laser Cutting Machine

Aug. 01, 2020

Fiber laser cutting machine has become an indispensable metal processing equipment in many industries due to its advantages of cutting metal materials with high speed and high precision. A laser cutting machine has a complex structure and many accessories, and its technical advantages are also reflected in its sophisticated accessories. The use of different accessories has a great impact on the performance of the laser cutting machine. So, how to choose the core accessories?

The core accessories of fiber laser cutting machines generally include fiber laser, servo motor, control system, cutting head, laser lens, etc.

Fiber laser

It is equivalent to the heart of the laser cutting machine and is the core accessory of the laser cutting machine. The quality of the fiber laser directly affect the cutting performance and cutting quality of the laser cutting machine. At present, the more well-known fiber lasers in the world include German IPG laser and British SPI laser. Compared with other brand lasers, the two have the characteristics of high cutting quality, good stability, long service life, and low maintenance cost. Generally applicable to relatively high-end laser cutting machines.

Servo motor

The servo motor plays a role in controlling the operation of the original mechanical parts in the servo system. The high-quality servo motor can effectively ensure the cutting accuracy, positioning speed, and repeat positioning accuracy of the laser cutting machine.

Control system

The control system is equivalent to the brain of the fiber laser cutting machine, controlling the machine tool to realize the movement of the X/Y/Z axis and controlling the output power of the laser. A better operating system, friendly interface, simple operation, and multi-functional combination, directly affect the performance of the fiber laser cutting machine.

Cutting head

The cutting head is the output device of the fiber laser cutting machine, which consists of a nozzle, a focus lens, and a focus tracking system. Under the control of the control system and the movement of the machine tool, the nozzle grinds the cutting track to realize the cutting of metal materials.

For metals of different materials and different thicknesses, the height of the cutting head is not the same. It is necessary to set the parameters through the control system to ensure effective cutting.

Laser lens

The laser lens occupies a very important position in the laser system, and it is related to the power of the laser cutting machine. There is a big gap between the price of domestic and imported lenses, and the service life and effect are also great. You can choose according to the different requirements of laser cutting quality.
