Analysis: How to control the use cost of metal fiber laser cutting machine

Reading Time: 4 minutes

In many cases, if you do not control the cost of using the metal fiber laser cutting machine, it will incur more costs. So this is an important reason why users hope to have some methods to control its cost. Let’s analyze it together. How to control the cost incurred in the operation of the metal fiber laser cutting machine?

Nearly 80% of the use cost of metal fiber laser cutting machine comes from the consumption of gas. As the main energy supply for metal fiber laser cutting machine, CNC metal fiber laser cutting machine and manual gas cutting equipment, familiar with and understand metal fiber laser cutting machine The principle of gas application will help reduce the cost of gas usage. In this regard, the Ministry of Science and Technology has conducted many debugging experiences of CNC metal fiber laser cutting machine equipment, and summarized the relevant knowledge and experience as follows:

First of all, you must be able to adjust the flame skillfully. The first problem is to ensure the normal cutting of the billet. If the automatic cutting cannot be completed successfully, you must manually use the manual cutting torch to re-cut, which causes waste, and manual cutting cannot guarantee the cutting quality. Intact.

By solving some abnormal phenomena and cutting effects of CNC metal fiber laser cutting machines, such as “constant open flames”, try to avoid ignition without cutting to avoid gas waste, and prevent gas leakage on joints and pipes everywhere. To avoid waste; in addition, it is necessary to actively promote and test new technologies and new products, highlighting the emergence of new products in the cutting nozzle, the “flame” is more perfect, the cutting effect is improved, the cutting seam is small, and the gas consumption is relatively low.

With the increase in the amount of steel used in related industries, flame cutting has become an indispensable link in the production and processing of more and more companies. For flame cutting, in addition to ensuring the necessary cutting accuracy, how to effectively Reducing production costs and controlling gas consumption are becoming the concerns of most companies. In terms of the relevant experience in the use of CNC metal fiber laser cutting machine equipment we talked about above, only some of the problems involved in the details of the operation. From a large perspective, enterprises want to effectively reduce the cost of equipment use, but also need Start with the principle of flame gas cutting.

Flame cutting, also called gas cutting, is a process of burning with oxygen/gas flame. In the first step, the temperature of the steel plate must rise to the ignition point. Then, the oxygen stream oxidizes the metal in the long and narrow area, and the slag generated during combustion is blown away by the cutting oxygen stream to form a slit.

Oxygen gas cutting can be used for carbon steel and low alloy steel, and the thickness can reach several decimeters. The cutting quality depends on the surface condition of the material, the cutting speed and the thickness of the material.

The typical thickness of flame cutting is recommended to be in the range of 6-150MM, which is also the cutting machine thickness that can be achieved by the current CNC metal fiber laser cutting machine; but flame cutting is the cutting method with the largest cutting thickness among many cutting methods. Generally, if you cut When the thickness is higher than the typical thickness, the gas path of the cutting machine, the cutting gun, the amount of oxygen and gas must be changed, and the steel cannot be cut through if the power fails to meet the requirements.

The above is some experience in the application of automatic metal fiber laser cutting machine. However, to make good use of the automatic metal fiber laser cutting machine, you first need to master the flame of the cutting torch. The key to the adjustment of the flame is the gas source. Most of the oxygen on site is the pipeline oxygen. The purity and pressure of the oxygen can generally meet the requirements of use. Most of the gas is supplied in bottles. A 30 kg bottle of gas is used for about 2 hours in a 5-machine 5-stream scale. In this way, the gas source must be replaced midway, which will lead to large fluctuations in gas pressure, which directly affects Air flow, causing abnormal cutting.

In addition, to ensure that the current equipment is in good condition, usually based on the operating regulations, regularly check for leaks in pipelines, joints, etc., lubricate the bearings, pin holes, etc., clean the cutting nozzles, cooling water pipes, etc., and complete the daily routine. Only procedural work can ensure normal operation, and then improve and improve the effect.

Considering the specific equipment, large-scale flame gas cutting, such as a CNC metal fiber laser cutting machine with a faucet, will generally be equipped with more than ten sets of flame cutting torches. Generally speaking, straight metal fiber laser cutting machines (multi-head metal fiber laser cutting machines) are divided into the following All three are used for steel plate cutting.

1. The simplest straight metal fiber laser cutting machine, which can evenly divide the steel plate into strips. It is simple and practical, low in price, and has a good sales volume.

2. In addition to the simple steel straight strip cutting function, a flame cutting gun is added in the horizontal direction, so it can cut straight strips and cut straight strips. The function is stronger, but in most cases, users are in order to save costs. , It is often also manually cut horizontally. This kind of cost is more expensive than the first one.

3. CNC straight metal fiber laser cutting machine, this is the most powerful and advanced at present, so the price is also the most expensive. In addition to the main functions of one and two, it also has a powerful CNC Special-shaped cutting function, can be equipped with CNC flame and CNC plasma cutting, becoming the most complete CNC flame plasma straight cutting machine.

In addition to sharing how to control the cost of the metal fiber laser cutting machine, the above content also introduces some of its use principles.
