Nowadays, laser equipment is changing with each passing day, and the pace of replacing old equipment with new equipment to become the new mainstream of the manufacturing industry is accelerating, such as fiber laser cutting machines instead of CO2 laser cutting machines. Why fiber laser Cutting Machine can replace CO2 laser cutting machine? Let’s analyze it from three aspects.
1. Maintenance cost
CO2 laser cutting machine: The maintenance cost is high, the front mirror and the tail mirror are expensive, the life of the turbine bearing is short, and the replacement cost is high. Fiber laser cutting machine: maintenance-free, basically no consumables, and capable of handling harsh working environments, with a high tolerance for dust, shock, impact, humidity, and temperature.
2. Processing cost
The photoelectric conversion rate of CO2 laser cutting machine is only 8%-10%, while the photoelectric conversion rate of fiber laser cutting machine can reach 30%. For factory production, even a 1% increase can save a lot of costs in the long run.
The CO2 laser has a complex structure, high maintenance cost, and large beam divergence during processing, which is not suitable for large-format processing. Although the cutting seam is relatively thin, the speed is very slow when processing thick plates. The laser characteristics of fiber laser cutting machine are embodied in miniaturization, intensiveness, high brightness and high conversion rate. For thin plate processing, the cutting speed of fiber laser cutting machine with the same power is 2-3 times higher than that of CO2, and the cutting section is smooth.
