Six steps to help you select the best fiber laser cutting machine – 2021 Updated
Many users still have various questions about how to choose a laser cutting machine that suits them. Below, Krrass will introduce how to choose a laser cutting machine correctly, which can be considered from the following aspects :
1. The materials processed by the company and the scope of business needs
First of all, we must consider clearly our business scope, the thickness of the cutting material, which materials need to be cut and other factors, and then determine the power of the equipment to be purchased and the size of the worktable. The power of the laser cutting machine on the market currently ranges from 500W to 6000W. , And manufacturers of the general size of the workbench can customize it according to the needs of customers.
2. Initial selection of the manufacturer
After confirming the needs, we can go to the market to find out or go to the counterparts who have bought the laser cutting machine to have a look at the performance and basic parameters of the machine. Choose several manufacturers with strong prices and preferential prices for preliminary communication and proofing. Later, we can conduct on-site inspections and conduct more detailed discussions on the price of the machine, machine training, payment methods, and after-sales service.
3. The size of the laser power
When choosing the performance of the laser cutting machine, we should fully consider our own environment. The size of the laser power is very important. For example, we often cut thin metal plates below 6mm, then we can choose a 500W-700W laser cutting machine to meet the production requirements. If cutting materials above 6mm, we need to consider a machine with a higher power, which will greatly help the cost control of the enterprise.
4. The core part of the laser cutting machine
We also need to pay great attention to some important parts of the laser cutting machine when purchasing. Especially for laser generators, laser cutting heads, servo motors, guide rails, water tanks, etc., it is necessary to distinguish whether they are domestic or imported. These components directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of the laser cutting machine. Many domestic manufacturers use domestically-made counterfeit imported accessories to deceive customers.
5. Equipment quality and stability in use are also very important metrics
The current product development cycle is short, the update is faster and faster, and there are more product diversity, sample trial production, and mass production. How to complete customer orders with quality and quantity, maintain corporate reputation, and enhance corporate competitiveness is also important The arduous task faced by each operator, so purchasing processing equipment with stable performance is the prerequisite and basis. Try to choose a brand with a high market share, a sound after-sales service system, a large number of after-sales service outlets and long-term market testing. Buying low-quality products without after-sales service at low prices will have a huge impact on the production of enterprises.
6. After-sales service
The after-sales service of each manufacturer varies widely, and the warranty period is also uneven. In the after-sales service, we not only provide customers with effective daily maintenance programs, but also have a professional training system for machines and laser software to help customers get started as soon as possible.
There is also that no matter how well a laser cutting machine is made, users will encounter various problems in the process of using it. When encountering problems that customers cannot solve by themselves, it is up to the manufacturer to provide timely solutions. It is particularly important, and this is also an important factor that we need to consider when choosing a laser cutting machine.
