3 tips to effectively increase the cutting speed of fiber laser cutting machine

 

Compared with traditional processing equipment, the cutting speed of laser cutting machine has great advantages. Speed is the fundamental factor in determining efficiency, so how to increase the cutting speed and increase the efficiency during use? Today I share 3 tips to help you effectively increase the speed of the cutting machine.

 

First, let’s talk about several factors that affect the cutting speed.

 

Factors:

 

1. Different materials

The metal materials cut by the laser cutting machine are mainly divided into aluminum plate, stainless steel, carbon steel, copper plate and alloy materials. The characteristics of different materials are different, and the absorption rate of the laser is different, so the cutting speed is different in the case of materials of the same thickness.

 

 

2. Different thickness

The thickness of the material is different, and the required perforation time is different. In the cutting process, the thicker the thickness, the greater the laser energy required, and the slower the cutting speed.

 

3. Different output power

Power is the most important factor that determines the cutting speed. The greater the power, the greater the laser energy, and the faster the cutting speed of thin plates. Take the following different powers as examples, you can compare the cutting speed of different powers and different materials;

a. The maximum cutting speed of 500W fiber laser cutting machine for different materials: carbon steel maximum speed 13m/min; stainless steel maximum speed 14m/min; aluminum plate maximum speed 5.5m/min; copper plate maximum speed 5.5m/min;

b. The maximum cutting speed of 1000W fiber laser cutting machine for different materials: carbon steel maximum speed 24m/min; stainless steel maximum speed 24m/min; aluminum plate maximum speed 10m/min; copper plate maximum speed 10m/min;

c. The maximum cutting speed of 2000W fiber laser cutting machine for different materials: carbon steel maximum speed 28m/min; stainless steel maximum speed 28m/min; aluminum plate maximum speed 25m/min; copper plate maximum speed 16m/min;

d. The maximum cutting speed of 3000W fiber laser cutting machine for different materials: carbon steel maximum speed 35m/min; stainless steel maximum speed 35m/min; aluminum plate maximum speed 43m/min; copper plate maximum speed 35m/min;

Ways to increasing the cutting speed:

 

  • Adjust the parameters of the laser machine to improve the cutting speed of the machine

Machine parameter settings are one of the main reasons that affect the cutting speed of the machine. Under normal circumstances, if the parameters are not adjusted well, its cutting speed will not work. The parameters are like the related actions of a series of actions such as driving, starting, accelerating, etc. If the parameters are not set, it is like when the car is starting, you put a second gear to start. When starting, It will jitter. When adjusting this parameter, generally pay attention to the following points:

 

  • Set up initial speed

As the name suggests, this setting is the speed at which the machine starts, which is like the speed at which the car is just starting when it is driving. Many customers have such a misunderstanding that the greater the initial speed, the better, but this is actually wrong. If the initial speed of the laser machine is set too high, the machine jitter will be very large.

 

  • Set up acceleration

Acceleration means the speed at which the vehicle is refueling while the car is running. It is the time it takes from the initial speed to when the machine cuts normally. When the machine is cutting different patterns, it is a process of constantly starting, stopping, and stopping. If the acceleration setting is too low, the cutting of the machine will slow down.
