How to distinguish fiber laser and CO2 laser cutting machine
Recently years fiber laser cutting machine is extensive and appied in heavy industry. It has instead of CO2 laser cutting machine is especially in metal building, auto manufacture industry and metal door industry, etc. But many customers still unknown why fiber laser cutting machine has a more wider market then CO2 laser cutting machine. Here is some information help you distinguish fiber laser and CO2 laser.
Applied to different materials
CO2 laser wavelength is 10.64um, and fiber laser wavelength is 1064nm. CO2 laser is relatively easy to be non-metallic absorption, can be high-quality cutting wood, acrylic, PP, plexiglass and other non-metallic materials. Because fiber laser is not easy to be non-metallic absorption, so it can not cut non-metallic materials. Fiber laser mainlly cut metal like stainless steel, carbon steel and alloy metal.
Difference between fiber laser and CO2 laser transmission
Because of the wavelength difference between CO2 and fiber laser is an order of magnitude, CO2 laser can not be transmitted with fiber, but fiber laser can be transmitted, So fiber laser greatly increasing the degree of flexibility of processing. Because of CO2 laser is expensive and high maintenance requirements, so it has gradually lost the market. Fiber laser can be transmitted through the optical fiber to improve the degree of flexibility, fiber laser cutting machine especially used for the automotive industry and metal door build industry. Fiber laser has low cost, less trouble, easy maintenance and high speed, so it firmly occupy the market.
Fiber laser photoelectric conversion rate is up to 25% or more, while CO2 laser photoelectric conversion rate is only about 10%.
Also fiber laser has quite obvious advantages in the electricity consumption, supporting the cooling system, etc. And it also can cut thick plate and stable and reliable. So fiber laser cutting machine come to a wider market instead of CO2 laser cutting macine.
With the development of technology, fiber laser cutting machine has advantages in metal cutting.

Co2 laser engraving machine for cutting
1.An brief introduction of Co2 laser engraving machine
Co2 laser engraving machine,as is known to all, could both cut and engrave.
Both of these two functions are popular among the market.
Besides,there are different types about this machine:600*900,600*400,1300*2500 working area.
The customers could choose according to their different needs.
Yesterday there is a customes coming from Dubai, he wants to cut 6mm plywood, and the working are is as big as A3 paper.
According to his requirements, I introduce the 80w machine with 600*400 working area.
Here is the machine photo for your reference:
The machine parts:
2.The applied industry of the machine
The co2 laser engraving machine mainly apply to the printing industry, processing on the rubber sheet，plywood as well as hard board.
Besides, it could also apply to crystal engraving, handicrafts industry, and Acrylic sheet,etc.
So here u can see it could apply to many different industries. Showing some samples:

Why choose fiber laser cutting machine for metal cutting
Why choose fiber laser cutting machine for metal cutting?
Many of our customers know there are different kinds of cutting machine to cut metals.
Today one of my Thailand customer told me they are thinking about Plasma or fiber.
Cause their consideration,i just made one comparison between the Plasma and Fiber laser cutting:
|Items||Plasma laser cutting machine||Fiber laser cutting machine|
|Cutting speed||Slowly (time cost is much)||Fast (higher work efficient)|
|Cutting precision||0.1mm||0.05mm (much better)|
|Principle||High temperature arc||Laser energy|
|Material damage||There will be large or small damage,
in the cutting process if the plasma cutting machine cutting head with some problems,
|Laser cutting does not damage the steel
non-contact cutting, will not scratch on the work surface
|Cutting gap||Bigger cutting gap||The laser beam is focused into a small spot,the cutting gap is smaller|
|Flexibility||CNC programming，cause the cutting precision is not enough,can not cut the smaller objects perfectly||CNC programming, can be processed with any cutting patterns ,no need any molds|
This customer has been in the furniture manufacturing for many years,so they are so cautions.
Why choose fiber laser cutting machine for metal cutting:
Firstly, in China ,also in other countries,there are many customers who need to cut and mark the stainless steel furniture.They have been using the fiber laser cutting machine and marking machine finally.
Secondly,some customers told us after the using of fiber laser cutting machine,they have reduced their cost.
Cause they used the shearing machine,bending machine,punching machine before the fiber laser cutting machine,there were many processing steps,many workers for different job.
Such as,firstly,they use shearing machine to cut the whole steel sheet,secondly to use the punching machine to different shapes,finally to use bending machine to make the final shape.
So in the processing,there are many drawing line workers,sheet loading workers,and some other processing steps need to do.
But fiber laser cutting machine can cut the whole sheet and cut it in any shapes you need, do not change different kinds of machine.
Thirdly, the fiber laser cutting machine do not need any mold to cut,just import the cutting files into the software,then to cut.For the punching machine, If you want to cut some different shapes,maybe you need to make new molds.My customers told me the new mold is expensive.
So after the comparison,the fiber laser cutting machine can help you to save human cost and time cost,producing cost.For every month ,finally you can save USD2000 or more.
As a manufacturer,save cost,higher work efficient,a better quality with a cost-effective price,thats the longer development goal,right?
Anything more you want to know,just tell me.
