Which carbon laser cutting is used for 8mm carbon steel

What laser cutting machine is good for 8mm carbon steel cutting?Carbon laser cutting is used for 8mm carbon steel,Laser cutting has involve in all walks of life. Due to the needs of the business, some customers may need to cut carbon steel materials of about 8mm.

For such thick materials, many customers still choose flame cutting or CNC punching machines. But the processed products have many burrs. The speed is also very slow. XT-laser to tell everyone what kind of equipment is best for cutting 8mm thick steel.
Carbon steel cutting
The 8mm thick carbon steel material not only fails to meet the speed requirements of the traditional cutting equipment, but also has a certain gap with the laser cutting machine in terms of quality. Laser cutting machines have become a must-have for metal coffin cutting because of their cutting ability, speed and processing accuracy. In addition, fiber laser cutting machines can cut a variety of complex graphics according to requirements to meet the needs of various industries.

We can choose the laser cutting machine according to our own business scope.

                                                                      We can consider the following three aspects

1. If long-term cutting of metal materials below 6mm is recommend to purchase 750w fiber laser cutting machine, the power is moderate, the price is relatively cheap, and the economic return is effective.

2. If you often cut carbon steel of about 8mm, we recommend that the 1000w fiber laser cutting machine equipped with a switchboard with a cutting speed of 3m/min.

3. If the cutting range is already larger than 8mm thick carbon steel material, we recommend that the fiber laser cutting machine with power above 2000w  more perfect, not only the cutting speed is fast, but the quality has good, although the price will  higher, but in the long run It is more cost-effective to consider business development.

Fiber laser cutting machine purchase tips-Teresa

Fiber laser cutting machine purchase tips?
In recent years, fiber laser cutting machine has been widely used in metal, sheet metal and stainless steel processing industries. The technology of fiber laser cutting machine is also quite mature. It has a very large market share in the cutting industry. But for many customers, how to choose a fiber laser cutting machine suitable for cutting their own materials, there are still many problems. The following is about how to buy a fiber laser cutting machine correctly.
 

Choose a company with good reputation and strength.

The fiber laser cutting machine is a large-scale equipment. It needs to be cautious when purchasing. Choose several powerful manufacturers to communicate in the early stage. Later, you can go to the factory to inspect, for the price of the machine, the training of the machine. Detailed negotiation with payment methods and after-sales services.

Determain your own needs

To take into account their own business scope, what materials need to be cut, the thickness of the material and other factors. And then determine the power of the equipment and the size of the workbench. The current cutting power on the market from 500W ~8000W. And the size of the workbench can be optional according to customer needs.

 Go to the market or online to find out about the consultation

After determining your own needs, we can go to the market or online to find out about the consultation. You can also go to the peers who bought the cutting machine to first look at the performance and basic parameters of the machine, choose several strengths and prices are also favorable. The manufacturer first conducts the preliminary communication. In the later stage, it can conduct on-the-spot investigations, and more detailed talk about the price of the machine, payment method, and after-sales service.

 Choose right laser power of fiber laser cutting machine

When choosing the performance of the laser cutting machine, we should fully consider our own environment. The laser power is very important. For example, we often cut metal sheets below 6mm, then we can choose 500W-1000W laser cutting machine. To meet the needs of production, if you cut more than 6mm of material, we need to consider the machine with a larger power, which is very helpful for the cost control of the enterprise.

 Pay attention to important components of fiber laser cutting machine

Pay attention to the selection of some important components of the fiber laser cutting machine, especially the laser source, laser cutting head, servo motor, guide rail, water tank, etc. Distinguish whether it is domestic or imported. These components directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of the laser cutting machine. Many domestic manufacturers use domestically produced fake accessories to deceive customers.

 Take after-sales service into account

The after-sales service of each producer is very different. In the after-sales service, the manufacturer should provide customers with effective daily maintenance programs, and have a professional training system to help customers. Solve problems as soon as possible.

 Warranty

No matter how good a laser cutting machine is, it will encounter various problems in the process of using the manufacturer. In the case of problems that the customer cannot solve, the manufacturer can provide the solution in time. Very important. This is also an important factor to consider when choosing a laser cutting machine.
The above is a summary of several purchase techniques for everyone. Hope it can be helpful. If you have any questions, please contact us!

5 Reason Why To Use Laser marking machine On Jewelry-lisa

5 Reason Why To Use Laser marking machine On Jewelry-lisa

Laser marking machine

In recent years, more and more people are beginning to take up the hobby of creating customized jewelry. Such customized jewelry is a nice option for a gift. Since the person can engrave any customized message on the jewelry.

One of the best ways to put some message or design on the jewelry is engraving. One form of engraving that every authentic jewelry must possess is marking. There are a number of ways in which this process of marking can be done.

Primarily, there are two types of method for engraving or marking and they are rotary engraving and laser engraving. Both these machines have their own benefits and the jeweler must select the type of machine that is most suitable for his/her needs.

  1. The laser marking machine has a very high-powered laser beam for etching the surface of the material. You can decide the depth of your engraving by determining the intensity of the beam of the laser.

 

  1. Besides the depth, laser engraver also enables you to select the design with great ease. The operator has to enter design on the computer and from here command is sent to the laser engraver, which engraves the design just as it is entered into the computer.

 

  1. This computer-guided mechanism of the laser marking machine enables the jeweler to engrave at a very fast pace. This is particularly beneficial for the professional jeweler, who has to meet the supply demands of the customer. One particular use of the fast pace of laser engraving machines is marking. The agencies responsible for the marking need to get the marking done at a fast pace and the only thing that helps them in achieving their purpose is laser marking machine.

 

  1. With the help of laser marking machines, the designer gets the ability to draw a highly precise pattern on the jewelry. The precise cut and the high accuracy provided by the laser beam gives the designer an opportunity to produce the designs that are highly complex. Jewelry marks usually contain some sort of logo and other information, laser machines can produce all of the marking information at a remarkable speed with high accuracy.

 

  1. The laser marking machine is possible to mark a wide variety of material. The beam of the laser machine has the ability to penetrate even the hardest of materials. . In contrast, the results with rotary machines do not produce the desired effect

welding ability of handheld welding machine-Jill

welding ability of handheld welding machine

Most of customers choose welding machine to weld metal.Such as stainless steel,carbon steel,aluminum,etc,.But customers always are confused on the welding ability.How to choose the suitable machine watt?Here we would like to share more with u.

The welding machine is not same as the the cutting machine.we can not only say ability.
Generally we use two kinds of words to learn the welding capability.
Welding depth(melt depth) and welding ability.

 Melt depth

1.Firstly,Welding depth is not related to the welding situation.it is the melt depth.
for 400 w,steel:2.5mm .aluminum:0.25mm
and then,for 500 w,steel:3mm. aluminum:0.3mm

Welding ability

2.Secondly,Welding ability(it is related to ur welding situation,such as the Stitching welding , Penetration welding)

1)Firstly,for stitching welding

For 400 w,steel:1.5mm .aluminum:1mm
For 500 w,steel:2mm .aluminum:2mm

2)Secondly,for Penetration welding

For 400 w,steel : 1mm
For 500 w,steel: 1.5mm

As u know,aluminum is high-reflective material.so it is difficult to do penetration welding.So we do not suggest that.

 

In the end,in a word, the above ability is only our experience.Different materials and situation,different ability.

Hope this can help u to learn more about the machine ability.

The Application of Laser Marking-Sophia

Application – Laser Marking

Pulsed Fiber Lasers are renowned for their versatility with laser marking being one of the most popular applications.

Although similar to laser engraving, the appliance of a mark is at a surface level, whereas engraving is a mark with depth.

Laser marking is the process where a material, which can be anything from ceramics, plastics, metals, LEDs, rubber, graphic composites, etc. is marked or labelled with a simple black mark, or in colour (depending upon the material).

Popular laser marking applications and industries

Laser marking is typically used for processes such as applying labels with bar codes, date codes, QR codes, serial numbers, part numbers or adding copyright/trademarks and logos to a number of different surfaces being commonplace across many industries.

Another popular use is the addition of a date value being added to materials such as metals and plastics; this could be used as a best before date or maintenance due date, etc.

Additionally, marking is very useful in security applications such as the creation of ID and smartcards offering high degrees of fraud prevention.

Night and day marking is another very popular application.

This is the marking of components with marks.

And it can be seen both at night (via backlighting) and day, this is popular for signage and on car dashboards as examples.

Marking with a laser is extremely popular in manufacturing industries and is widely integrated into sub-processes across the production line.

Laser marking is also very popular:

First of all, cars (such as component markings – such as spark plugs),

Second, electronics (such as printed circuit boards), medical (such as marking medical implants),

Third, aerospace (such as point shot peening and cockpit marking), semiconductor manufacturing.

Finally, jewelry and other industries.

Laser cut sheet metal+Karina

Laser cut sheet metal

For the industrialize 21st century, the term laser cut sheet metal is no longer unfamiliar, and it achieve an irreplaceable position in our industrial production field. However, different materials have different characteristics, and laser cutting is to cut the material by firing the high-temperature melting material. Therefore, the chemical reaction of laser cutting for different materials is different, so the material is laser process. When we do laser processing according to the characteristics of different materials, we will get more ideal processing results. Next, XT-LASER laser will popularize how to process more ideal laser cutting effects according to different characteristics of materials.

1. Titanium
The sheet cut with argon and nitrogen as process gases. Other parameters can reference to nickel-chromium steel. Both copper and brass have high reflectivity and very good thermal conductivity. Brass with a thickness of 1 mm or less can cut with nitrogen; copper with a thickness of 2 mm or less can cut, and oxygen must use for the processing gas. Copper and brass can only cut when a “reflective absorption” device is install on the system. Otherwise the reflection will destroy the optical components.

2. Synthetic materials
Keep in mind the dangers of cutting and hazardous substances that may be emitted when synthesizing materials. Machinable synthetic materials are: thermoplastics, thermosetting materials and elastomers.

3. Organic matter
Organic matter is at risk of fire in all organic cuttings (using nitrogen as a process gas or compressed air as a process gas). Wood, leather, cardboard and paper can be cut with a laser and the edges are burnt (brown).

To sum up

Laser cutting machines play a very important role in our work, especially for cutting some metal products. If you want to buy such a laser cutting machine, you must understand the laser cutting machine.With the development of technology, the field of laser cutting is becoming more and more extensive, and more and more materials are available.

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.

1000w cnc laser cutting machine
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.

CO2 laser

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.

How to maintain the optical lens of laser cutting head?-Angelina

How to maintain the optical lens of laser cutting head?

As we all know, one of the most important components of the fiber laser cutting machine is the laser cutting head with the characteristics of high precision and high price.

The life of the laser cutting head does not affect the operating efficiency of the cutting machine, but also the production cost and benefits of the factory.

What’s more, the most common problem affecting the life of the cutting head is the pollution damage of the optical lens inside the structure.

Today, we will teach how to maintain the optical lens of the laser cutting head.

The possible reasons of lens contamination of laser cutting head

1.The fiber head installation method is incorrect in the cutting head.

For this reason, the main solution is to choose the correct fiber laser head installation method.

Most installers tend to assemble freely the cutting heads, tilting the fiber-optic head installation direction, resulting in inadvertent installation.

We should try to keep the fiber head horizontally installed inside the cutting head and lock it during the installation process.

Besides that we can try to operate in a clean environment avoid dust from rising during the installation process.

Or we can choose to operate in the morning to prevent dust from entering the cutting head.

2.The cutting head itself has a poor sealing effect

For the sealing of the cutting head, it is not always possible to guarantee complete sealing.

Then, a feasible method is to install a breathing system to maintain the internal pressure of the cutting head.

3.Incorrect replacement of the protective window case

Due to the relatively large volume of the protective mirror box, particles are inevitably mixed during the replacement process.

Therefore, we must change the speed  when replacing the protective mirror box.

And we should seal the window with tape or other film.

4.Unreasonable cutting head consumables used

The selection of qualified protective mirrors and “O” type sealing rubber ring can ensure the sealing of the cutting head and prevent the entry of dust particles.

5.Improper laser cutting machine operation

When operating the laser cutting machine, we must strictly follow the equipment instructions and requirements and operate correctly.

Reduce the impact of improper handling on the cutting head.

6.Poor maintenance of the cutting head

The cutting head should be as clean and dry as possible and cleaned regularly.

How Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Works?-Teresa

Fiber Laser Cutting Machine

 

How Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Works?

Fiber laser cutting machine is a currently popular laser cutting type which adopts fiber laser source to fulfill perfect cutting effect. Fiber lasers are a type of solid state laser that is rapidly growing within the metal cutting industry.

A brief comparison between fiber laser vs CO2 laser

Fiber technology utilizes a solid gain medium, as opposed to a gas or liquid. The “seed laser” produces the laser beam and is then amplified within a glass fiber. With a wavelength of only 1.064 micrometers, fiber lasers produce an extremely small spot size. The size is up to 100 times smaller compared to the CO2, which makes it ideal for cutting reflective metal material.

Fiber laser source can output high-powered laser beam that focuses on the surface of materials, vaporizing or melting the focused area instantaneously. With numerical and mechanical system’s control, the laser head is moved and laser spot is also changed accordingly to achieve automatic cutting with fast speed and high accuracy. Fiber laser cutter has been developed into a highly precise laser cutting type. It is very popular in metal parts processing industries.

Work Versatility of Fiber Laser Cutting Machine for Metals

fiber laser cutting machinemetal laser cutting

Fiber laser cutting machine is able to process a wide range metal materials, including stainless steel, carbon steel, alloy steel, aluminum, galvanized sheet, copper, silver, gold and so on. Therefore, we should choose different laser sources according to metal features.

In addition to sheet metals cutting, fiber laser cutting machine also could process profiled metals and steel pipes. A set of steel pipe cutting system can be configured to the machine to broaden its cutting capacity. The cutting edge is neat and smooth to meet high industrial requirement.

Main Advantages of Fiber Laser Cutting

  • Fiber laser has higher energy conversion rate that can reach up to 30%, saving operation and maintenance cost.
  • Fiber lasers are designed with semiconductor modular and redundancy, and there is no optical lens in resonant cavity. So no need to spend much time starting and adjusting the machine before cutting work. This is incomparable among traditional laser machines.
  • Protective lens is configured in fiber laser head to protect focus lens and reduce parts consumption.
  • Laser head won’t touch the materials directly so as not to scratch the materials and ensure quality cutting effect.
  • Fiber laser produces the smallest kerf and thermal area, which keeps the cutting stability and avoid deformation of the material.
  • 02mm/min cutting accuracy and fast cutting speed markedly increases the work efficiency of metal parts manufacturing.
  • Fiber laser cutting machine works in a safe and environmentally friendly way. There is little pollution and noise producing and workshop environment will be safe.
