Lasers are used for many purposes. One way they are used is for cutting metal plates. On carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum plate,the laser cutting process is highly accurate, yields excellent cut quality, has a very small kerf width and small heat affect zone, and makes it possible to cut very intricate shapes and small holes.
For a long time in the past, as fiber laser technology is not mature, Co2 big power laser cutting machine is the leader in the metal laser cutting filed. It possesses the advantage that cutting both metal and nonmetal with high work effective. But it always waste a lot of energy, and cutting surface is very bad. Look at this picture, after cutting by Co2 big power laser cutting machine, the cutting surface is looks like charred. It is difficult to satisfy some precision parts process.
But when you cut metal by fiber laser cutting machine, there is a very different cutting effect to show you. You will find the metal cutting surface is bright and smooth. Although Co2 big power laser cutting machine can also cut the metal too, obviously, the cutting effect of fiber laser cutting machine is much better!
According to MORN LASER company's sales statistics show, the sales growth rate of fiber laser cutting machine is much faster than Co2 laser cutting machine. Due to the improvement of fiber laser technology, the production cost is reduced, and more and more people can afford the charges of fiber laser cutting machines. We are ensured that in a few years, the fiber laser cutting machine will substitute Co2 laser cutting machine completely in metal cutting field. No wait! Just order one set your own fiber laser cutting machine!
