What factors will affect the cutting speed of the laser cutting machine
The main reason why people choose to use laser cutting machines in production is that laser cutting machines can greatly improve people's work efficiency. It can be said that the cutting speed of the laser cutting machine can determine this to a large extent. However, the cutting speed of the laser cutting machine will be affected by some factors. As for the factors, let's listen to the relevant introduction of Wuhan high-energy laser experts. First, the laser cutting technology uses the energy released when the laser beam is irradiated on the surface of the steel plate to melt and evaporate the stainless steel. The laser source generally uses a carbon dioxide laser beam with a working power of 500-2500 watts. The power level is lower than that required by many household electric heaters, but the laser beam is concentrated in a small area through lenses and mirrors. The high concentration of energy enables rapid local heating to evaporate stainless steel. In addition, because the energy is very concentrated, only a small amount of heat is transferred to other parts of the steel, resulting in little or no deformation. The use of laser can cut complex-shaped blanks very accurately, and the cut blanks do not need to be processed further. The use of laser cutting equipment can cut stainless steel below 4mm, and oxygen in the laser beam can cut 8-10mm thick stainless steel, but after oxygen cutting, a thin oxide film will be formed on the cutting surface. The thickness of the cut can be increased to 16mm, but the size error of the cut part is larger. The above is the relevant introduction of the experts on the reasons that affect the cutting speed of the laser cutting machine. I hope that it can help you in your production work.
