What are the advantages of laser cutting technology compared with traditional cutting technology
We know that laser cutting machine occupies a dominant position in the current production work. Compared with traditional cutting technology, laser cutting technology has irreplaceable superiority. Not only is the efficiency high, but the cutting process is also more perfect. So what are the advantages of laser cutting technology compared with traditional cutting technology? Let's listen to what the experts of Wuhan High Energy Laser have to say. Firstly, using laser cutting, high precision: positioning accuracy of 0.05mm, repeat positioning accuracy of 0.02 mm Secondly, the laser slit is narrow: the laser beam is focused into a small spot, so that the focal point reaches a high power density, and the material is heated quickly To the degree of vaporization, pores are formed by evaporation. As the beam and the material move relatively linearly, the holes continuously form slits with a very narrow width. The width of the incision is generally 0.10～0.20mm. Again, the cutting surface after laser cutting is smooth: the cutting surface has no burrs, and the surface roughness of the cut is generally controlled within Ra12.5. Fourth, the laser cutting speed is fast: the cutting speed can reach 10m/min, and the larger positioning speed can reach 70m/min, which is much faster than the wire cutting speed. Fifth, the quality of laser cutting is good: non-contact cutting, the cutting edge is little affected by heat, there is basically no thermal deformation of the workpiece, and the collapse of the material formed during punching and shearing is completely avoided. The cutting seam generally does not require secondary processing. Finally, laser cutting does not damage the workpiece: the cutting head will not contact the surface of the material to ensure that it does not scratch the workpiece.
