Metal fiber laser cutting machine, owing to its overwhelming advantages in cutting speed & accuracy, has been widely used in different fields of metal fabrication & engineering.
However, fiber laser cutting machine is an complicated CNC equipment which integrates different systems, including mechanical, electrical and optical, it is not easy for people to choose the right machine & model When purchasing the metal laser cutting machine. Sometimes they seemingly find the best fiber laser metal cutting machine within their budget, but only be disappointed by its poor performance & low capacity to meet their cutting requirements.
Price is not always the weighing factor that matters, many other factors actually should be taken into consideration to decide the high quality fiber laser cutting machine. So, stay with JeesunCNC here to find more details about fiber laser cutting machine!
1).Decide Material & Cutting Thickness
The fiber laser cutting machine is mainly used for metal & non-ferrous materials, which, however, have quite different melting points and thus require fiber laser sources of different powers. Steel plates of different thicknesses, even the same material, require fiber laser source of quite different powers, eg, 1000w fiber laser cutting machine will be quite enough for 10 mm carbon steel and 5mm stainless steel, but if you want to cut 10mm stainless steel, 1000w fiber laser is far from enough and 3000w fiber laser cutting machine or more is recommended for better cutting performance & higher cutting speed.
So, When purchasing a fiber laser cutting machine, it is quite a good idea to decide what material to cut and the thickness, including Max. cutting thickness & common cutting thickness, to determine the exact laser power, which have a great impact on the cutting speed & cutting performance in later factory works.
2).Decide Working Size Or Plate Size
Fiber laser metal cutting machine of different models are available, which have various working size, such as 1500x3000mm, 2000x4000mm, 2500x6000mm, 2500x8000mm, etc. So, decide the Max.dimension of your plate you want to cut or your required working size and decide the very best model, that will not only save unnecessary cost for you, but also make the best use of the fiber laser cutting machine.
Also, exchange-table structure is an good choice if you have high requirement over the working efficiency, it is equipped with 2-working-platform which can be shifted automatically within 15s, thus great increasing the working efficiency.
3).Decide Main Part of Metal Fiber laser Cutting Machine
The fiber laser cutting machine is composed of different parts. When purchasing, pay attention not only to the price, but also to the working performance, service life, maintenance of each part & accessory, especially IPG fiber laser source, RayTools laser head, servo motor, guide rail, water chiller, etc., it is quite necessary to distinguish origins of local or imported, and the specific models & performance of the main parts. These components directly affect the running speed, cutting accuracy and working performance of the whole fiber laser cutting machine.
4).Select Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Supplier
After the laser power and machine model are well decided, the buyer can initially understand the performance and basic parameters of the fiber laser cutting machine through the market or inquire with peers, select several powerful and affordable manufacturers for preliminary communication and sample cutting, and then conduct on-site inspections, discuss further detail such as price, training, payment method, after-sales service, etc.
During the service life of fiber laser cutting machine, various problems will inevitably be encountered. Therefore, after-sales service and other issues need to be considered when choosing a fiber laser cutting machine. On the one hand, it is necessary to have a professional training system for machines and laser software to help customers get started as soon as possible; on the other hand, it is necessary to provide customers with effective daily maintenance programs.
