Six steps to help you choose the right fiber laser cutting machine
In recent years, laser cutting technology has been widely used in sheet metal, handicrafts and other processing industries, whether in the field of metal cutting or non-metal cutting. The technology of laser cutting machines has become quite mature. Very large market share, but there are still many users who have various questions about how to choose a laser cutting machine that suits them. Let’s introduce how to choose a laser cutting machine correctly The machine 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 our business scope, the thickness of the cutting material, which materials need to be cut and other factors, and then determine the power size of the equipment that needs to be purchased and the size of the worktable. At present, the power of laser cutting machines on the market ranges from 500W to 6000W. , And manufacturers of the general size of the workbench can customize it according to customer needs.
2.The 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 machine’s performance and basic parameters. Choose several manufacturers with strong prices and preferential prices for early 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 selecting 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 metal sheets below 6mm, then we can choose a laser cutting machine of 500W-700W to meet the production requirements. If we cut 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 fake imported parts to deceive customers.
5.Equipment quality and stability in use are also very important metrics
Nowadays, the product development cycle is short, and the update is faster and faster. 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 choosing 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 products with low quality and no after-sales service at low prices will have a huge impact on the production of enterprises.
The after-sales service of each manufacturer is very different, and the warranty period is also uneven. In terms of 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. 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 particularly important that the manufacturer can provide timely solutions. This is also an important factor that we need to consider when choosing a laser cutting machine.
