Primalaser Laser is a high-tech enterprise that can provide suitable laser cutting solutions according to the precision requirements and equipment budget of processing products. Its main businesses include: metal laser cutting machines, metal plate fiber laser cutting machines, laser pipe cutting machines, etc., and is committed to the research and application of laser welding and cutting equipment and laser surface treatment technology. Laser cutting machines are mainly divided into CO2 lasers, YAG solid-state lasers, and metal plate fiber laser cutting machines. These three types of laser cutting machines have their own characteristics in production. Below, we will compare the characteristics of three common laser cutting machines from several aspects.

1. Operating requirements and maintenance
Before using the laser, it is necessary to adjust the optical path, as the condition of the optical path will directly affect the cutting effect of the workpiece. Therefore, it is necessary to manually adjust the optical path and maintain it regularly; The thermal lens effect of YAG solid-state laser is obvious and requires frequent maintenance; metal plate fiber laser fiber transmission, free of adjustment, maintenance, high stability, and easy operation
1. Cutting speed and effect
The cutting speed of metal plate fiber lasers is 2-3 times that of CO2 lasers of the same power, and their advantages are particularly prominent in the cutting process of metal sheets. They have excellent performance in the other two types of laser cutting machines, with good cutting quality, small gaps, and neat edges.
3. Material Applicability and Application Industry
Lasers have a wider range of material applicability, while metal plate fiber lasers are more suitable for high reflective materials such as aluminum and copper, which better meet the processing requirements of sheet metal manufacturing, 3C home appliance industry, and new energy industry.
4. Energy consumption level and comprehensive cost
The photoelectric conversion rate of metal plate fiber laser is over 30%, the photoelectric conversion rate of CO2 laser cutting machine with the same power is about 10%~15%, and the photoelectric conversion rate of solid laser is 3%. The power consumption of metal plate fiber lasers is only 20-30% of that of lasers with the same power, resulting in lower overall costs.
Through comparison, it can be seen that the metal plate fiber laser cutting machine has higher work efficiency, better cutting effect, and is maintenance free under the same conditions. However, the cost of purchasing the machine is slightly higher, and large and medium-sized enterprises can prioritize fiber equipment.
