Advantage of Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Application
Advantage of Fiber Laser Cutting Machine Application Lasers are one of the de facto processing solutions in many industries. Right from common Electronics to Aerospace, use of Laser as a cutting tool has become unavoidable.
It’s important to know those few things that make Lasers an inevitable process requirement.
Accuracy and repeatability are one of the foremost factors that is well-thought-out when it comes to special applications. Flexibility of Fiber Laser system acts as an important factor to reach the complex geometries even with best quality and at high speed. Of course, the CNC and the gantry of the cutting machine has a major role in providing stability during the operation; but Lasers has a niche in executing the cutting operation close to the procession of microns.
Laser systems are widely preferred for fabrication applications as the precision of the operation lies in the cutting mechanism – Laser.
When it comes to the matter of micromachining, Lasers are preferred to be the apt solution due to its immense accuracy and finish achieved through the micron level machining. Lasers could achieve resolutions up to 1 micron.
Any sort of machining work or material processing which are done to a detail of micron, usually between 1 to 500 micrometres demand Lasers.
3. Non-contact Operation
Laser cutting is a non-contact type cutting operation – hence suited for varied applications involving thin materials. This aspect of Laser cutting operation does not deliver pressure or leave any impressions on / close to the operational area of the material.
Trivia: Fiber Lasers are capable to fabricate sheet metals of thickness ranging in between 500 microns to > 20 mm.
High speed cutting operation is one of the best features of Laser cutting. Cutting applications ranging from metal fabrication to microstructures demands hi-speed operation for maximum productivity. Be it Ferrous or Non-Ferrous metals, Lasers offer best in class speed in the cutting operation.
Productivity is directly related to the speed and quality of the output. Quality of the Laser cutting operation could be well administered with the power of Laser and speed of operation. Hence making it the most chosen technology among other cutting mechanism.
Low cost of operation with very less consumables.
No tools involved.
Precise machining with no or very less post processing required.
Trivia: Fiber Laser cutting systems are close to 60% economical compared to the conventional CO2 Laser cutting systems.
