Fiber Co2 laser cutting machine–Wendy from XT Laser

Fiber Co2 laser cutting machine

Fiber Co2 laser cutting machine.

Firstly, as a manufacturer of CO2 laser cutting machines with output power from 2.2 to 6 kW. True fiber laser machines ranging from 2 to 4 kW. XT LASER is often asked about the benefits of each type of machine. Who is better for specific applications. As there is often some confusion in the marketplace. We outlines below the pros and cons of the two technologies.

Briefly, banks of diodes creates the fiber laser. The light is channeled and amplified through fiber optic cable similar to that used for data transfer in metal laser cutting machine.

Secondly, Creation of the light is 200% more efficient than via a traditional CO2 laser.  Delivery is far simpler. With no expensive optical mirrors. The focusing lens, unlike on a conventional CO2 laser machine.

Thirdly, If one examines the price-to-performance ratio of the different models, the main cutting speed benefit of the higher-power 4 kW laser is in mid-range materials from 6 to 8 mm thick. There are also small benefits in thickness capacity when cutting non-ferrous materials, typically an increase of one gauge of material. This helps only customers who cut a lot of material in the 6 to 8 mm range or who wish to cover all eventualities, as it is their only metal laser cutting machine.

The disadvantages of fiber compared with CO2 mainly relate to the cutting speed when processing thicker materials. Typically above 5 mm. Where the CO2 machine is faster in a straight line. It also has much faster piercing times at the start of the cut. There is also the advantage of a smoother surface finish with the CO2 machine when cutting thicker materials.

Thus,  Sometimes also CO2 laser profilers.

Firstly. Over 70% of fiber laser customers are subcontractors, the remainder being original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). This is surprising. As one would expect OEMs to be more confident about deciding to purchase a fiber laser machine. Where the advantages and disadvantages vary greatly, depending on the products to be cut. Subcontractors can never be sure what the next job will be. What material thicknesses will need to be processed. So theoretically the versatility of a CO2 machine would be more attractive in metal laser cutting machine.

Secondly. Of the subcontractors, only 31% had a single laser profiler after purchasing the fiber machine. Whereas 69% were multiple laser users and could decide which machine to put work onto, CO2 or fiber.

Thirdly. The main reason for purchasing a fiber machine was the speed of cutting thin (1 to 2 mm and up to 3 mm) materials.

Fourth. An important secondary reason was the lower running cost. And the lower power consumption using fiber technology. It was particularly important in companies at the top end of the electrical supply limit in their workshops.

CO2 laser engraving machine has done a good job in non-metals engraving and cutting process. It’s an economical way to start or expand your business by a CO2 laser engraving machine that is outstanding in modern laser industries.CO2 laser engraving machine introduce power platform acrylic and leather

Advantages of CO2 laser engraver

Advantages of CO2 laser engraver can be briefly summarized as the followings:

a.High-quality engraving effect with excellent precision.
b.Easy to start and operate even for a beginner.
c.Affordable and applicable for a range of materials.
d.User-friendly design and beautiful appearance.
e.Safe and efficient working process.

Three steps to choose a CO2 laser engraving machine

1.Decide what materials you want to engrave.

In order to choose a best suitable CO2 laser engraving machine, you should firstly make sure what materials you plan to engrave. Versatile CO2 laser engravers are able to engrave a wide range of non-metal and small range of metals. Such as wood, acrylic, MDF, fabric, rubber, leather, plastic, paper and so forth. If you have decided materials to engrave, then you can choose a CO2 laser engraving machine that excels at that kind of materials. For instance, you can choose a wood laser engraving machine for engraving wood specially.

2.Speak to different CO2 laser engraving machine brands or manufacturers.

There are so various brands and manufacturers in global CO2 laser machine market. Therefore we should do investigations to select a reliable CO2 laser engraving machine manufacturer. Usually big brands are more expensive than some unknown small brands who can also provide decent CO2 laser engraving machines for you if you search carefully. If possible, contact them and communicate with them about the details of the machine.

3.Make a right market positioning.

Consider this step before paying for any CO2 laser engraving machine. Forward-looking and accurate market positioning and judgment on laser engraving products will contribute largely to your business. To do this, you can study what laser engraving crafts are popular and best-selling in current market. And what products will be promising in future market, based on which you can build a clear business idea and select a proper CO2 laser engraving machine.

As for CO2 laser engraving machine price, try to compare the prices from different manufacturers for the wanted machine. Pay more attention to whether the performance and efficiency of the machine are really worth the money you invest.
