Difference Between Fiber Optic Laser Cutting Machine And CO2 Metal Laser Cutting Machine
- Mar 08, 2018 -

Firstly, the fiber laser cutting machine and the CO2 metal laser cutting machine are transmitted in different ways. The fiber laser is not transmitted through the mirror like CO2, which makes the fiber laser technology have no range limitation between the mirrors. Also, the system is more compact due to the ability of the fiber to bend when compared to a gas cutting system of the same power.

The electro-optic conversion efficiency of fiber laser cutting machine far exceeds that of CO2 metal laser cutting machine. Users can use fiber laser cutting machine to achieve higher power efficiency, which is about 25% to 30%. It is the actual use of laser cutting machine brand carbon dioxide cutting system. The rate is three to five times. The energy efficiency of fiber laser cutting machines is increased by more than 90% compared to carbon dioxide cutting systems.

In terms of maintenance, high-power CO2 metal laser cutting machines require regular maintenance, such as mirror calibration and cavity maintenance. The fiber laser cutting machine is maintenance-free at a later stage.

Due to the short-wavelength characteristics of fiber laser cutting machines, some non-conductive metal materials, as well as brass and copper, absorb the fiber laser beam more easily. Since the fiber laser beam is more concentrated and the spot size is smaller, the fiber laser cutting machine cuts faster when cutting the thin plate and the medium plate. When cutting materials up to 6mm thick, the cutting speed of a 1.5kW fiber laser cutting system is equivalent to the cutting speed of a 3kW CO2 laser cutting system.
