The Use Advantages of YLR Single Mode, Ytterbium Single Module
The laser is the core part of the laser cutter, which determines the cutting quality and cutting efficiency of the laser cutting machine. The greater the laser power, the faster the cutting speed and the better the cutting effect. At present, there are lasers with different prices and different modules in the market. We are used to dividing lasers into YLS multi module and YLR single module.
However, when many customers choose and configure lasers for laser cutter, they do not know much about the difference between single-module and multi-module. In fact, the biggest difference between the two is the fiber core diameter.YLR single mode have relatively thin fiber cores and excellent beam quality. Below, we take YLR single mode 5000W and YLS multi-mode 6000W as examples to compare their respective advantages and help you make better choice.
1. Cutting Speed
1) Medium-thin plate cutting
Compared with YLS multi-mode 6KW and YLR single-module 5KW cutting stainless steel, the efficiency of 1-4mm medium and thin plates is increased by 8%-87%, and the cutting speed of 5-8mm thickness is the same.
Compared with multi-mode 6KW and single-module 5KW cutting carbon steel, the cutting efficiency of 1-2mm thin plates using nitrogen is increased by 60%, and the cutting speed of 3-8mm thickness is the same.
2) Thick plate cutting
The efficiency of single module 5000W is obviously improved in cutting thin plates, and it is also excellent in cutting thick plates.
According to the test data: comparing the multi-mode 6KW, single-mode 5KW cutting stainless steel, the cutting speed of 10-20mm thick plate is the same.
From the test data, it is concluded that the cutting speed of 10-25mm thick plate is consistent with the comparison of multi-mode 6KW and YLR single-module cutting carbon steel.
Compared with multi-mode 6000W, single module 5000W energy consumption can save 25%.
Volume and Weight
Compared with the multi-mode 6000W, the single-module 5000W has a volume reduction of 76% and a weight reduction of 55%.
The higher the power of a single module, the fewer modules are needed when integrating 10,000-watt ultra-high power lasers, the structure is more compact, and the smaller the beam combination specification, the higher the beam combination efficiency and the more stable performance. Take the 15000W ultra-high power fiber laser as an example, only 3 single modules of 5000W can be combined into a bundle.
