1. Service life: RF tube life can reach more than 45,000 hours, generally can be used for 6 years, inflatable can be reused, no need to replace; and glass tube is only 8000-10000 hours, usually replace a glass tube for half a year, can not be repeated Use, to be replaced.

2. Cooling method: The air tube is air-cooled to ensure long-term trouble-free and stable operation; the glass tube is water-cooled, and when the working time is long or the water temperature is high, light may be emitted or intermittently emitted. Continuous work has a greater impact on the quality of the product. .


3. The size of the spot (beam): the RF tube is 0.07mm. The spot is fine, more than 3 times finer than the glass tube, the precision is high, the heat diffusion area is small, and the engraving/cutting is very fine. The CO2 glass tube is 0. 25mm. The precision is poor, the light is unstable (the light intensity is not uniform, sometimes there is no light), the thermal diffusion area is large, the trimming edge is melted, the blackening is obvious, and the engraving precision is relatively poor.


4. Stability: The RF tube is a fully sealed metal tube, which uses a low voltage power supply of 30 volts. This is a direct avoidance of some of the drawbacks caused by the use of high voltage power supplies; since the domestic glass tube laser cutting machine uses 10,000 The high-voltage power supply with higher or higher voltage has certain dangers besides instability. The long-term work makes the power supply easy to age, and has great interference to the control system. If the operation is improper, it is easy to burn the motherboard, and it is more susceptible to voltage. Affects and damages its normal function.


5. Price: RF tubes are many times more expensive than glass tubes, and for processing some products such as leather, only glass tubes are required.
