In the current metal manufacturing industry, cutting has shifted from traditional tool cutting to fiber laser cutting. After a period of use, many customers have reported that the cutting effect and cutting ability of fiber laser cutting machines are not as good as before. So what is the reason for the decrease in cutting efficiency of fiber laser cutting machines?
Reasons for the decrease in cutting efficiency of fiber laser cutting machines:
▼ Focusing position: The position of the focusing point will affect the cutting efficiency. A small focus can only create small cutting gaps. If the cutting efficiency decreases, it can be adjusted by adjusting the focusing point position.
▼ Cutting speed: The cutting speed of a fiber laser cutting machine is related to the power of the fiber laser, and the higher the power, the faster the cutting speed.
▼ Nozzle distance: The distance between the workpiece and the nozzle can also affect cutting efficiency. If it is too far, it will cause energy waste. If it is too close, it will also affect the blowing of the melted workpiece. Generally, it is best for the workpiece to be 0.8mm away from the nozzle.
▼ fiber laser power: After long-term use of fiber fiber laser cutting machines, fiber laser power will decay or decrease, which will directly affect cutting performance.
Long term high load operation, lack of maintenance or improper human operation can all lead to a decrease in the energy efficiency of fiber laser cutting machines. The decrease in energy efficiency of fiber laser cutting machines cannot be completely avoided, it can only be slowed down and cannot be eliminated. Reasonable use and regular maintenance can ensure stable efficiency of fiber laser cutting machines.
