Technical analysis of laser cutting aluminum material

Superwave Laser Technology Co.,Ltd | Updated: Mar 26, 2018

From the perspective of cost and investment, which are widely used in aluminum for fiber laser cutting machine and laser cutting equipment YAG laser cutting machine, the two devices in cutting aluminum or other material cutting materials, such as stainless steel, carbon steel has a good performance.

From laser cutting aluminum materials for many years experience, both difference is bigger, can be divided into three levels, one is the quality of the cutting, 2 it is cutting speed, the third is the cost of production (where the cost of production is mainly the life of the equipment only loss).

1. Cutting quality

Aluminum profiles are highly reflective materials, so neither fiber laser cutting machines nor YAG laser cutting machines can process thicker aluminum. In addition, the aluminum material is not resistant to high temperature. It is easy to have burrs in the process of cutting aluminum. Therefore, it is necessary to focus on the control process and get the ideal cutting quality.

2. Cutting speed

Cutting speed is also need to be controlled, too fast cutting speed is easy to produce burr, cutting speed too slow will make crack of aluminum materials, influence the cutting quality, therefore need to process control. In general, the cutting speed of laser cutting machine with equivalent power is higher than that of YAG laser cutting machine.

3. Production cost

The processing cost of laser cutting machine is very low, much lower than other cutting technology. Fiber laser cutting machine and YAG laser cutting machine as a comparison, optical fiber laser cutting cost is lower than the YAG laser cutting machine, the latter often need to change laser light fittings, but from a long-term point of view, the aluminum material for optical fiber laser cutting machine laser damage is serious, greatly reduce the service life of laser, this this point to see YAG is lower than the cost of the optical fiber laser cutting machine.

In addition, it is important to note that aluminum has high reflectivity and low absorption of laser, so it is necessary to wear laser protective glasses during processing to protect its own safety.
