Today, Perfect Laser will explain to you from three aspects why it is not recommended to use a fiber laser cutting machine to cut aluminum? One is the quality of the cutting, the second is the cutting speed, and the third is the production cost (the production cost here is mainly the life loss of the equipment).
Aluminum profiles are highly reflective, so fiber laser cutting machines cannot process thicker aluminum. In addition, aluminum materials are not resistant to high temperatures, and burrs are prone to occur during the cutting of aluminum materials. Therefore, it is necessary to focus on the control process and it is difficult to obtain the ideal cutting quality;
The cutting speed also needs to be controlled. Too fast cutting speed is prone to burrs. Too slow cutting speed will cause cracks in aluminum materials, which will affect the cutting quality. Therefore, special process control is required, and the cost is relatively high;
3. Production costs
The processing cost of holmium laser cutting machine is very low, far lower than other cutting processes. However, the aluminum material damages the laser of the laser cutting machine more severely, which greatly reduces the life of the laser. Therefore, the production cost will be relatively high with the loss of the machine.
Finally, if you use a fiber laser cutting machine to cut aluminum, not only the effect is not ideal but the efficiency is low and the cost of consumables is high. It is recommended that everyone can use a plasma cutting machine to cut aluminum.
