Fiber, CO2, YAG three laser cutting machines, how to choose?
In recent years, fiber laser cutting machines have rapidly used in the industrial field, bringing technological innovation to industrial manufacturing. What drives people to abandon the old processing methods and let the former CO2 and YAG laser cutting machines gradually withdraw from the historical stage? For there exist the obvious weaknesses and cannot meet the requirements of the development of the times.
Fiber, CO2, YAG three laser cutting machines, which one will you choose?
From the aspects of beam quality, power consumption, service life, processing control, and equipment maintenance:
1 Fiber laser cutting machine has the best beam quality, CO2 is the second, and the final is YAG;
2 Energy saving, fiber laser cutting machine is the most Excellent, YAG is generally, CO2 is poor;
3 Fiber laser cutting machine has the longest service life and others’ service life is short compared with fiber laser;
4 Fiber laser cutting machine still has advantages in the control system and maintenance cost;
First, fiber laser cutting machine VS CO2 laser cutting machine
Compared with fiber laser cutting machines, the advantages and disadvantages of CO2 laser cutting machines coexist.
The advantage is that CO2 can process both metal and non-metal materials, while the fiber laser cutting machine is only suitable for processing metal materials;
CO2 laser cutting machine is much cheaper than fiber laser cutting machine.
The disadvantage is that the CO2 laser cutting machine processing is slower, 2-3 times slower than the fiber laser cutting machine in thin plate cutting, and is not suitable for large-format laser cutting. At the same time, CO2 laser cutting machine has high processing cost, mainly due to the high power consumption, gas loss and loss of consumables. Turbine bearing replacement is a higher cost in maintenance. Maintenance of fiber laser cutting machines is relatively easy and requires a little expense.
Second, fiber laser cutting machine VS YAG laser cutting machine
YGA is a low power laser cutting machine suitable for cutting thin metal sheets.
Compared with fiber laser cutting machines, YGA has the advantages of low cost of purchase and high material resistance.
The disadvantages are: the cutting speed is slow, it is not suitable for thick plate cutting; the power consumption is high and as well the maintenance; the operation is convenient and the intelligence is far less than the fiber laser cutting machine.
Optical fiber, CO2, and YAG have their own advantages and disadvantages, but in comparison, fiber laser cutting machines occupy a large advantage and meet the needs of the times. However, it is best to choose your own laser cutting machine according to your cutting material and cutting requirements.
